Perfect quiet retreat

I was looking for a quiet retreat near the beach to decompress from the passing of my mother the week earlier and this charming hotel was perfect. Just a short walk to the secluded Carmel beach and just what I needed to heal.

Safety and health hazard nightmare

This inn has a wonderful friendly staff but the room was outdated, bedding was stained and torn, gas fireplace had no safety glass and was inches away from many combustible things. The bathroom was something straight out of 1950 and the shower control handle came off in my hand. The worst was the extension cord with multiple cords plugged in to it. We will not return.
