4/10 Fair

Not worth the $
I was really looking forward to staying here but highly disappointed when I book deluxe 2 Queen Bed.we received the room 101 above the garage. The view was terrible from the balcony and right next to the street where we heard all the traffic and garbage pick up. Also the trash bins were below so heard all the guys opening and closing. For the price I wish I had booked another property. The staff is lovely but I think if you get a room near the courtyard you’ll have a different experience.

Beautiful quaint hotel in great location
Hotel Carmel was absolutely amazing! Beds were comfy, room clean, great location-easy walk to everything, friendly staff, and outdoor sitting area was amazing. We were there with out 16 month old and were able to enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on the outdoor couches in the terrace and it was so peaceful. If traveling with toddler or baby I recommend asking for a room by the terrace so you can enjoy during naps.
