I have stayed at The Getaway several times. It’s small, clean, classy and very accommodating. They have a wonderful handicap room with a roll-in shower that I find very convenient. Great small parking lot, so you don’t have to wrestle with street parking. Wonderful breakfast delivered to your room each morning, and the staff are very kind and want you to be comfortable. Highly recommend!!

The hotel is cute, rooms are on the small side. Our rate was high season and it was not a good value. Location excellent for walking to dinner, wine tasting, etc. Room 19 is very loud as the room faces Junipero St. and the bathroom faces Sixth Ave. The hotel is located at possibly the busiest intersection in the area so you really hear cars from very early in the morning to very late at night. The windows are old and not double pane so you also hear people talking on the street below.

Room tip: Avoid Room 19 as it is noisy.

The Getaway is a great place to stay. Walking distance to shops and restaurants, bikes and beach blankets to use, and a great fire pit to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine. Room 2 has a private entrance off 6th!

My young daughter and I stayed here on a trip up to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Aquarium was very close, maybe 15 min. Everything in town is walking distance. Restaurants, shopping. Even a little market just behind the motel. Coffee, tea and water are always available in the lobby, as well as a happy hour. Parking is tight, literally, thw spaces are close and on a slight hill so that was always fun to maneuver in my mini van, but its free. The rooms are clean and include a small table and chairs to enjoy the complimentary breakfast they bring to the room each morning. I would definitely stay here again if we are ever in Carmel. Oh, the walk to the beach is doable, but the walk back is multiple blocks uphill. Great stay over all
