Easy going stafg
Some myopic woman took her dog to swim in the pool
The grounds were beautiful. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of little extras like happy hour and cookies.
Staff is poorly trained and limited in authority. Systems are poor. Records are not kept well
Building style, swiming pool, flower.
We loved EVERYTHING just wish it was a little cheaper /
prices, wish it was cheaper
Great hotel, friendly staff and clean. Perfect location
Airco equipment outside room 400 very noisy. Great hotel but don't let them put you in room 300 or 400 !
Superbly run boutique hotel very calm and relaxing
The hotel needs a total renovation. The rooms are too small for that price. the closet is inside the bathroom, behind the bathroom door and very difficult to reach.
Breakfast was fabulous, Sangria and happy hour were wonderful extras we never expected . Grounds were beautifully kept , beds and pillows very comfortable. Christian helped my daughter with her wedding preparations and was always professional and eager to please. Service and food from the kitchen was great.
Nothing we didn't like... Oh wait, there were no bagels for the breakfast salmon:)
Staff is really friendly and helpful; location is 5min walk from beach and 5mins from Main Street with shops. Room was adequate yet no ac. The complimentary shuttle to town was great.
The facilities, excellent breakfast, very friendly personnel, shuttle service to dinner
The room is not big but compfortable
Location was very good and free off road parking available. Warm, homely atmosphere with daily wine tasting. God staff.
For the money the room was tiny, couldn't swing a cat in there. Bad nights sleep for my wife and I due to a very noisy refrigerator. Mentioned to front desk but apart from an apology no offer of a gesture of goodwill. Late night noise from wedding parties.
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating! We enjoyed the Sangria while checking in and the breakfast was very yummy, too! The staff went beyond to help make reservations and educate us on the area and things to do... Along with maps to get us there! We loved stroll down the street to the beach (which is close proximity to Pebble Beach Golf Course) and to town. Hotel offered great dinner recommendations and a shuttle ride to and from (we walked but nice to have the option. I will definitely stay here again!
Breakfast was A+ and overlooked the courtyard and partially the ocean. Walking distance to Carmel beach. Staff were friendly and the location is surrounded by residential homes. The courtyard was also nice. Plenty of free parking around the hotel.
No elevator, small refrigerator wasn't working well, bathroom sink wasn't draining quickly, furniture is old but well kept. I was charged about $450 a night which is about what four seasons charges and this is no four seasons. I don't feel I got my monies worth. Also, the room door was left open which is unprofessional and someone could have stolen my stuff. Also, no street lights around the the neighborhood so walking around at night is scary. Overall, I'm going to stay closer to where all the shops and restaurants are.
Extremely expensive. About as stylish and comfortable as a Travel Lodge. Not at all what you would expect from a so-called luxury, top end hotel.
The rooms were horrible. Unstylish, shower curtain, old towels. Our room was extremely noisy.
This is fantastic if you like mediterranean-style boutique hotels. Many small extras are on offer (wine tastings, Valrhona cookies etc). The decor is gorgeous and the garden and pool areas are just perfect with terracotta, tiles, brilliant flowers and shrubs and a real sense of serenity. Small plates in the bar in the evening are surprisingly tasty, very high quality and filling but stop at 2100. Our room was small but comfortable. Location is top class - a modest walk from the centre of Carmel with all its expensive shops and lovely restaurants, or the pretty beach.
Loading luggage was ok for us on the ground floor but would have been pretty challenging upstairs with no elevators. The pool was rather cold but then it was March!
