Great location and close to everything in downtown. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The decor is nice and fitting to the area. The building is old so one can hear everything, but noise from outside is not bad. I have stayed here twice and always have been comfortable and satisfied. There are many opportunities for lodging in Carmel, this this place an opportunity.

This hotel is great. Fantastic location, the room was incredibly clean (it did have a musky smell but not a "dirty" one), very friendly staff, comfy beds, good wifi etc. However, one thing let it down. There was a very loud whooshing noise every now and then, I believe it was when someone was using hot water elsewhere in the hotel. It woke us up on both nights of our stay, and I sleep with earplugs in. A real shame and something that needs addressing by the hotel.
