The location--at the center of town--is perfect, the service is friendly, kind and efficient and the prices can't be beat. There aren't frills here, but the bathrooms are clean and stylish and really the place has everything you need (including tea and coffee all day long near the Front Desk and simple, free bag breakfasts).

In a town filled with overpriced or pretentious hotels charging three times as much--I've stayed in many over the past 32 years--this is a modest and welcoming gem. I've so loved the times I've stayed here.

Room tip: All the rooms are quiet and some seem to offer terrace room, though the bay is hard to see from most of them.

We booked this place hoping it would be one of the many, very smart independent motels you find throughout CA. Check in was painless and easy.

We got a great patio as we had paid for a sea view but it did mean we were around the side of the hotel. The patio doors were surprisingly insecure - held by a small bolt. The room itself was surprisingly small (two double beds), particularly with the fireplace in one corner. The lack of a desk was a shame and we had hoped the room would be smarter/have more character. The bathroom was also relatively small. The beds were very comfortable.

Remarkably when we got ready for bed we discovered that the room has no AC - not even a fan! We called reception and they said all the free-standing fans had been given out for the night. We managed to get one our second night but couldn't believe the lack of AC in California - the hotel is older but not so old as to not offer this.

The pool was well located and of a good size. However, having been advertised as heated to 80 degrees I would say it was a lot colder. The pool hours (9am-7pm) were annoyingly restrictive, but not uncommon for outdoor pools and explained by the fact that some hotel rooms were right outside it! Breakfast was very poor - a grab and go bag with water, a piece of fruit and an unappetising, dry pastry - which forced us to go elsewhere.

Overall given the range of choice and competition in Carmel, and the reasonably high room rate, we were left disappointed. The hotel lacked the character we had hoped for and needs to up its game where AC and breakfast are concerned. We would look to stay somewhere else if we returned to Carmel.

I typically stay in Hampton Inns. This motel is not at their standard. No A/C and very musty. In the summer you will need the windows open. This is a motel… your door and windows face the parking lot. Good location however a lot of street noise. People working there were polite. But have to question the legitimacy of so many 5 star reviews… if you have allergies and like quiet sleep you will be very disappointed.

This hotel is a few blocks from the "main drag" in Carmel, and two doors down from a great little market. Location, location, location.

I had a suite with a balcony with an ocean view. The rooms have been renovated -- the only shortcoming is the lack of A/C, which is common in Carmel and was not an issue during my stay in July. The king bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was both large and well-lit. The price for the size and amenities was attractive.

I managed to catch my finger in a shower door. Mike at the front desk greeted me with sympathy, a sewing kit (for a needle), rubbing alcohol (to sterilize it). All of the staff I met were friendly.

I will definitely return.

The Inn is conveniently located for wondering around Carmel. It's an older hotel, but our room was clean and comfortable. Our room overlooked the pool, but as promised when we checked in, it wasn't noisy.
