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

The hotel lies in the heart of a prestigious area, giving access to Tor House, which is 1300 meters away. The tranquil hotel is a good example of sophisticated architecture in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

The property is 10 minutes' walk from center of Carmel-by-the-Sea. There are an oceanarium and vineyards in the area.

La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel offers a spectacular view to its guests.

The nearest bus stop is 350 meters away. It will take around 15 minutes to get to Monterey Peninsula airport by car.

Rooms

For a comfortable stay La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel offers 75 rooms on 4 floors featuring a minibar, satellite television, climate control, wireless internet and an iron with ironing board. Some rooms have the garden view. They feature bathrooms with a bathtub, a shower and free toiletries.

Eat & Drink

Every morning at the lobby guests may enjoy buffet breakfast. The lounge bar serves tea, coffee and champagnes. Serving American, Mediterranean, contemporary and continental specialties, Terrace Grill is about 100 meters away.

    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.
