Location is Good But

Pros: Comfortable bed. Good location.
Cons: Need counter space in bathroom. Need storage space for clothes. Need better pillows.
This hotel is basic but very clean. I've stayed at other hotels owned by this group and this is my least favorite because it lacked what I consider a necessity for a hotel room, i.e, counter space in bathroom and drawer space for clothes. If you normally keep your clothes in the suitcase than this place would be fine for you but not for me. Their other properties (Svendgaards and Carriage House) have much better rooms. I won't stay here again.

Nice hotel, easy walk to All downtown shopping

Took a weekend trip to Carmel and read about this hotel on travelocity and yelp. Positives: Minutes walk to all downrown shops, restaurants. Very quiet at night. Comfortable room. Very clean Kuerig coffee maker with good quality coffee. Nice patio outside with firepit. Friendly staff. Negative: Pedestal sink in bathroom with no counter space. No writing desk. We could not get just standard tv channels.. not sure what was wrong. Didn't ask the front desk, because we were there just overnight. We'd cosider again.
