Ok, so this hotel/motel is not in Carmel-by-the-sea, but once you get over that fact and as long as you have a car, you can enjoy this 4 star property and the fact that you are not paying twice the price to be in a less modern and comfortable property in the seafront village. We loved our large room with king-size bed and lovely bed linen. The bathroom was excellent and also large. We did not make use of the heated outdoor pool and hot tub, but other people did.
The breakfast was included in our rate and was fantastic. There were at least 10 hot options to choose from including American breakfast, pancakes, omelets and French toast. Across the road from the hotel is a Starbucks, cvs, Safeway and small outdoor shopping mall, there are also a collection of shops behind the car park at the back of the property. Best place to eat in Carmel-by-the-sea for lunch is La Bicicyclette, and best place for dinner is Mission RANCH (Clint Eastwood's place). The Prime Rib is delicious, the cocktails are good and piano player and local singers make for a great night out.
