Here comes a great surprise at the best moment. Please get Andrea welcoming you to start a soothing relaxing experience to make you feel welcome and chilled. The rooms are lovely and wonderfully decorated. Everything is perfect from every angle. The minimalist breakfast is just perfect. Just the right options. The afternoon cheese and wine by the fire is a...

The room heating system did not work. Temperature in room hovered around 64 degrees. Some of the staff indicated they'd heard this before. There are no staff after 10PM and it took help 20 minutes to get there and they could not fix it. Heating system is unacceptable for any hotel, but especially one that charges these rates. There is...

Had a lovely stay at Hideaway! Great location, never moved our car! Breakfast and wine and cheese were both amazing and such a nice touch! Rooms look just like pictures and the fire place was toasty and great to have in December! Will definitely be back!

Parking is obviously a big problem, we were lucky to get a street spot close by. Comfortable sitting area for drinks and breakfast. The courtyard looked attractive though too cold to sit in while we were there. We will return to enjoy this in the summer. The bed was very comfortable and location good. Cherry

We spent two nights at the Hideaway and found the room lovely and the bed comfy. At times a little noisy due to light insulation between rooms but don't let this put you off. A good breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese are welcome and delicious. Easy walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Check in early to snag a...

Although Carmel is a charming town and very pretty, And this property is very centrally located and was I guess recently all redone, it is not anything close to what a $300 room should offer---just be forewarned so expectations are not misplaced. We had some problems. Every single person on site is gone by ten pm and if you call...

You can hear everything: conversation next door, kitchen prep, vacuuming upstairs, housekeeping staff talking outside. No parking -- only street. The property was attractive and had obviously had a recent update, but that can't make up for lousy construction.

The Hideaway was a wonderful home base for exploring Carmel and everything nearby. We walked around town, shopped a bit, ate at a couple great restaurants, visited Point Lobos, and spent some time lounging in the room. Amenities were excellent, staff was friendly, and the breakfast and wine and cheese were perfect additions. It was perfect for a quick weekend...

This stay back in October was a pleasant surprise. We were there for 6 nights for the Carmel Int'l. Film Festival.It was convenient and close to everything yet very peaceful and quiet. The rooms were very cozy yet sophisticated and contemporary, The breakfasts in the morning were yummy and the late aft. wine and hor'd'ouvres were also quite nice. Clean,...

This property has so many wonderful things to discuss. But there are 2 major downsides which would cause me to hesitate before booking again. Let's start with all the good stuff. The property has been recently redone and the decor is sleek and hip while remaining cozy and comfortable. Everything is very clean and the whole package has a lush...
