Cute cottages very quaint. A little dated, but it was wonderful for what we needed. Very friendly staff. Dog friendly which was perfect. Tight for parking spots, but happy to have off street parking. We had a great time!!

Love the location in Carmel, nearby shops and beach and restaurants. Disappointed about no extra TP in room upon check in, no wake up call, no more breakfast even grab and go.
