We really liked the location of our room, #215; the convenience of the location of the hotel, the lovely fireplace and the outdoor firepit areas, breakfast was yummy and good quality, the selection of CD's in the lobby is wonderful! Suggestions for improvement: The biggest thing lacking is a microwave in the room, even if it is to reheat our coffee, tea etc..., the sangria needs to be improved, it is not tasty, too watery, offer red apples and bananas as well as granny smith apples. Thank you

Maid service was great. Freshened rooms everyday. That was nice. Staff nice. Rooms small but very nice. Small and quiet. Breakfast was so so. Wine reception only on weekend. Parking not great at all but in Carmel it’s expected. Would stay there again.

Check in was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful. Parking is limited, but I managed to always find space. Needed to navigate stairs with suitcase to reach room on second floor, and there was also a further floor above. My room turned out to be configured for disabled guests and featured a very large bathroom although the shower, washbasin and wc were ordinary items leaving a lot of unused space. As the doorway was standard size, it appeared to me that no wheelchair could get through, so didn't quite get that. However, the room was clean, comfortable and well heated and had daily housekeeping. I would be happy to return.

6/10 Okay


The front desk associate working before 4:00 acted like it was a major inconvenience that I was there. She also had me wait outside for almost 30 mins while she talked to someone about their favorite foods, places to visit, etc. it made me feel so uncomfortable just sitting there. She wasn’t polite or pleasant at all. A gentleman was working when we checked out and he was super nice though! The room itself was fine. There was hair left over in the bathroom which was gross and the bathtub was dirty. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend or stay here again.

The breakfast room is just below a guest room. We came in the the breakfast room just to be shushed and told to be quiet. I have a hearing problem and this was very upsetting. NOT COOL!
