"An ideal location for your Highway 1, Big Sur or Carmel Valley cycling journeys. No wasted miles! The hotel itself has great rooms. There is a pool that is open during Covid, but the hot tub and gym are closed. Rooms have a refrigerator and not water, but no microwave. Across the street is a Safeway for breakfast food and nearby are many dinner eating spots. You can leave your car in their parking lot all day even if it's your checkout day."

"Second time around in this Inn. They offer a quick breakfast bar in the morning: cereals, juices, coffees, muffins, donuts, fruit, waffle grill with toppings, scrambled eggs and sausage links, English muffins you can toast. Above average but not restaurant style. There are refrigerators and small cup hot water dispensers in room for coffees and tea bags provided. Bruno's Market is next door for any needs. Organic soaps, shampoo, conditioner provided. Beds are comfortable. Location suburb. Ceiling fan and fireplace for cozy and comfortable feel. Parking is ok. Nice Lobby. I brought some personal dishes to toss salads for dinners and picked-up some extras--like pastries, fruit, chicken, etc. It worked well. You can also get soup/sandwiches at the Meat counter inside Bruno's. There is an outdoor pool from 9a-7p. The slam-dunk is being on the edge of Carmel-by-the-Sea away from traffic, but walkable to downtown and Ocean Beach. I recommend a walk along Scenic Drive."

"Now let me start by saying that we got a discount deal (obviously) and in the off season, so I rated the value for money based on what we paid ($99/night). Very clean. Parking was a little weird in an inside courtyard where you have to maneuver the car between brick pillars (nerve wracking but fortunately we weren’t in a very large car). Other than that it’s about a 10 minute walk to the beach. It’s a 2 minute walk from the edge of the main village part of Carmel-by-the-sea. Really fantastic location. Rooms were spotless. Bed was comfortable. Honestly, I would stay here again, though I daresay were it not the off season we might end up paying considerably more for the privelege."

"Good location, comfy bed, helpful staff, however the room was dated and not as clean as other places we've stayed. Breakfast was adequate but there were not sufficient seats for all the guests and the coffee, milk and orange juice had run out when we went in. Staff did come in and fill them however by this time we had finished. Carmel is an expensive place to stay and this was one of the less expensive inns, therefore probably reasonable value for money."
