San Jose, California
Reviewed 26 December 2016

The rooms were well-appointed and the staff was very friendly. The inn is right in the heart of the downtown area, yet is incredibly quiet. The breakfast in the morning is a nice touch. We enjoyed our stay here and would visit again.

This is a great place to stay in Carmel....right in the heart of the shops/restaurants. Also a short walk to the beach. Very clean. Only complaint is that the room was a little small. We had a standard queen room, but I do believe that they have larger rooms. A nice touch was that they serve breakfast to your room...

Comfortable inn lodging. Staff and service was great. Location very good. Room 14 has stairs behind the head board wall. They are noisy enough to be a mild nuisance early in the morning when breakfast is being prepared and served.
