Editorial review:

This hotel has a great location close to the shops in Carmel and is two blocks away from the ocean. It has been renovated over the past few years, but critics feel that it's still a bit dated and that the rooms are old and uninviting. The bathrooms needed to be redone, according to some. The grounds and ambiance were highly praised, though.

Overview

Set in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, this contemporary hotel features 75 rooms and offers a swimming pool, barbeque grills and a library. The building was renovated in 2012.

Many Carmel-by-the-Sea sights, including Point Lobos State Reserve and Monterey Bay Aquarium are within about 10 minutes' drive. The hotel is placed 10 minutes' walk from Carmel Village, Carmel Plaza and Carmel Heritage.

            It is a nicely renovated Spanish style hotel with a great location in Carmel. The breakfasts were very good and it's nice to have an ocean view.

            The bathroom was very small with a bar size sink. The room rate was on the high side.
