The tennis camp was great! Clark Corey and his staff did a wonderful job with the tennis camp. We would come again, For my group, I would recommend keeping the level of players together to achieve more impact.

Very close to main street- Ocean. If you like everything to be updated, perfect and newer then this would not be the place. It is the place if you are looking for a better value and location. You don't spend much time in the room so it should not matter too much!

Nice place to stay. We had a very basic room but everything was clean. No clock. Teeny tiny T.V. Staff was friendly. Juice, coffee and pastries delivered to our room in the morning -on time.

Find other accommodations if possible. This place is kind of a downer. No charm whatsoever, more like an old fashioned road side turn in with no expectations of anything but a bed and a shower. Better rooms must be available for the same amount of money or perhaps a few dollars more.

The Carmel Lodge is typical old Carmel motel. It is very clean and well-kept. The service is excellent, and a very simple continental breakfast is brought to your room in the morning. The only drawback is you only have certain times to choose to have the coffee, juice, and sweet rolls delivered. The rooms have small refrigerators, microwaves, coffeepots, and...

Rooms a little dated, but very close and easy to walk everywhere. Having a place to park my car while I walk around was nice too considering how difficult it is to park in Carmel. Thanks again, and we look forward to coming back.

Room was very clean although small and outdated. The location was excellent. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. We especially liked the balcony which was very pleasant. We would certainly stay here again.
