    Solo travel

    I stayed in a very small room at a very high rate. It faced the street. The customer service was mediocre at best. The front desk guy was condescending. I asked for a late checkout of an hour and was denied. This hotel is not a good value for the money.

    Cozy and Close

    This is a small motor-court type hotel, located several blocks from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. It has two levels, and no elevator - so keep that in mind if you have trouble carrying your luggage up fairly steep stairs. No a/c, but there is a fan and a heater (didn't need the fan, but used the heat in early May). The office is not open 24/7, but is open from 8am - 10pm. There is coffee available in the lobby during those hours. There is a quite large sun deck, with two high tables/chairs as well as a couch and 2 comfortable chairs. There is a gas fireplace up there which would have been awesome with our evening cocktails, but we were told that the city won't let them use it (which is odd since the hotel next to this and the one across the street both had their gas fireplaces lit at night). Breakfast is served in a very small separate building (under the sun deck) - There are only a couple of small tables and because of the size the offerings are fairly limited. While we were there the hot food was scrambled eggs and sausage patties. They also have breakfast biscuits you can heat in the microwave, some small yogurts, some cold cereal and of course, the BW waffles. We stayed in a Queen room which, while pretty small, was ok for 2 nights. Bed, 2 night tables with lamps, small desk with lamp and desk chair, large walk-in type closet, large TV on chest with 3 drawers and refrigerator. Small, one cup coffee maker. One side chair with round table. The room has been remodeled, so vinyl plank flooring (no carpet) and a nice walk-in shower. Enough counter space in bathroom for 2 people.

    Very quiet and peaceful corner of the world

    Very great location just 2 blocks from the main area of downtown and many close by Galleries and other fun shops to visit and the food options are so close and good too!

    stay at Town House Lodge

    Convenient to downtown. There was construction going on earlier than the owner anticipated, so Sanjay put us is a much larger, nicer room. Price was excellent. Can't say enough about the friendly owner and staff. Very accommodating.

    Very central location

    Very good location in the middle of the town but still not noisy. Rood was good and clean. Personnel were nice and friendly. The breakfast selection is limited and the area very small - only a couple of tables.
