“Very nice place to stay”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

This place is not the Ritz, however, the rooms were comfortable, clean and nicely appointed. The selling point for me was the fireplace in every room. Great on those chilly nights (which are often in Carmel).

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor, unless you like to hear people walking above you.

The place is a bit older like many of the inns in Carmel but the people could not be friendlier! The gentleman proprietor is a true gem offering a smile and a laugh that is infectious. His sense of humor and kindness is a joy to everyone he greets. We had a lovely room that had been recently redone which when traveling with our dogs is a real treat. Usually most inns give dog owners the rooms that no one else wants but that was not the case here. As others have mentioned the location is superb! You can walk to everything in town quickly and we never moved our car in 5 days. Sure the breakfast is nothing to write home about so don't expect anything special but we found out stay delightful anyway. Try the 5th avenue deli around the corner for lunch and you will forget all about breakfast!

Small but nice room. It is a bit of an older establishment. Not glamorous or glitzy, but sufficient. Continental breakfast was fine, not extraordinary. Location is superb, a 2 block walk to Ocean Avenue, 10 minutes to the beach.

Not much value here. Overpriced for a very basic motel feel of a room. Nothing to look forward to here.

We were driving the Pacific Highway one didn't have a room booked so stopped T the tourist office for a recommendation...we weren't disappointed. It wasn't expensive (with breakfast included), the room was chintzy and the real fire was gorgeous.
It's right in the centre of Carmel which is a GORGEOUS place - we loved it.
