We loved everything about this place. The location is so close to many great restaurants. Easy drive down the old Mission. I loved our complimentary breakfast delivered to our room. The room is clean and comfortable. This is the street parking only but we have no problem finding parking spot near by. .

I have stayed with my wife for a weekend, and honestly, I am so happy we found this place—an excellent hotel with a perfect location located in the city center. The room was spotless & comfortable. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the friendly reception staff; they make our trip more enjoyable with their recommendation & tips about the city, supermarket, shops, restaurants bars are within walking distance. Would definitely recommend this hotel to everybody! It's a true sample of excellent hospitality. The prices are excellent as well.

This was such a charming and clean hotel! We were close to downtown Carmel, and didn’t have to walk far to get anywhere. Be aware, there is very little parking- non provided by the hotel, so you may have to walk a ways from where you parked your car. Nice employees, cute courtyard, and even wine and cheese at 5PM! Even though we didn’t get cheese :( We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!.... and missed the cheese :)

Horrible Stay
The upside: The hotel lobby is very cute and they offer complimentary coffee in the morning and wine from 5pm-6pm. The bed and sheets were comfortable and clean. The downside: First, I’m still not sure there is air conditioning in the rooms, there is a thermostat but nothing happened when we turned it on. The windows also have no screens on them so we didn’t feel comfortable leaving them open at night. As a result the room was STUFFY from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. Second, the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything the person in the room next to you says or does. Third, the doors to the rooms have to be shut very hard and are very loud to open and shut and it ways very irritating listening to the slamming of doors all day and night. Fourth, the shutters don’t block out any light so I couldn’t sleep at all cause there was light coming into our room. Fifth, there were a few giant hairs on the floor of the bathtub which shows me they did not clean it properly. Lastly, there is no parking! We had to park blocks away and it took us atleast an hour to find parking. The parking in front of the hotel is minimal and was taken up the whole time we were there. The rest of the parking close to the hotel is 2 hour parking. I had to park in a neighborhood on a very tight street blocks away from the hotel. Overall, I had a very uncomfortable stay and a long sleepless night. I would not stay here again or recommend this hotel to a friend or anyone else.
