The price was way too expensive for the quality of the room. We realize your paying for location in Carmel, but almost $3000 for 3 nights and the pet fee was a total rip-off. Brophys was serving alcohol after 9pm, but didn't offer any food. Not even simple snacks. How can they serve drinks without food responsibly? Very disappointed.
This was our second visit and we loved it as much as the first time. The location is great and although the property was clearly quite basic when it was first built, the owners have got it really nicely finished, to a high standard and very tasteful throughout. The hot tub and deck area is beautifully finished as is the lobby and breakfast area. Although limited in space, parking is included and convenient and the free breakfast is basic but of high quality- gorgeous granola, fruit and other cold options. The staff were all very pleasant and went out of their way to help. Would visit again.
People in our group were staying at hotels all over town for less than our rate here and the hotel was far less nice. It was horrible but it was definitely not worth $600+ a night. So that was disappointing
Let’s just say this place could easily be a 5 star but given $700+ night, it threw the value equation off for me. Rooms need an update, slightly dirty. I had buyers remorse after staying and spending so much $$$ for an average experience.
We spent 3 nights at Hotel Carmel and will definitely be back. It’s a perfect location and has a lovely atmosphere. The staff were always eager to answer our questions or point us in the right direction for fun activities in the area. We rented e-bikes and it was such a fun way to explore Carmel. Riding to the beach and the 17mile road were highlights!
Loved hotel carmel! So beautiful. Will definitely come back. Good location, beautiful outdoor area, delicious breakfast. And the fireplace in our room was so relaxing! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Stay here. You won’t regret it!
Great staff and very clean rooms. The Happy hour and breakfast were very good. Reason that I am not rating this hotel higher were that they had limited parking and no air-conditioning. During the summer this would not be an option for me due to the temperature.
Great Location, many restaurants and shopping within walking distance, friendly staff, nice rooms with fireplace and fire pit in courtyard. Loved the sangria in lobby in the late afternoons with cookies. Plus, Brophy's Bar & Grill was really warm and fun.
Absolutely loved how clean and quaint Hotel Carmel is! Excellent location, great amenities and worlds best staff! Anne & Kathleen super accommodating! 10 out of 10 recommend. 5 out of 5 stars. Would definitely come back again. Thank You!
Everything was good for me except unsecured internet. As a solo traveler I felt safe throughout the day and night both on the premises and walking back from OceanAvenue. Many places to eat close by without having to walk to other side of Ocean Avenue. Be aware there is no elevator if you have an upstairs room. If you don’t mind 2 sets of stairs there’s a great view from second floor and it’s great exercise too! The jacuzzi made my day each night. I really like that amenity and breakfast had fresh berries among other wonderful selections.
