5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The staff is amazing, courteous and professional. The hotel comes with the charm of a hotel that was built in the 1940’s. Some minor upgrades to shower strength could be explored and boost in WiFi signal strength is needed if you are there on business (the walls are very thick). I cannot wait to book my reservations for next year. Very convenient location at a competitive price.

It’s an older building. Very clean. The room we had assigned was having the carpet cleaned so they “upgraded” our room. The upgrade was a “family” room, which had 2 bedrooms. This also meant the were family rooms above us as well with children and this room was on a delivery alley. The noise started very early in the am. We are a couple traveling without children so we did not need an extra room or bed and this was essentially a “downgrade for us. In this business it’s better to think who you are assigning where.

Hotel Carmel is in the perfect location and just minutes away from the center of all attractions. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping to choose from along with the pier just in walking distance. The hotel is a no frills accommodation so if you are looking for something high- end, this hotel is not for you. Hotel Carmel was exactly what we were looking for and the biggest plus was the affordable valet parking for $25/24 hours since we had a rental. It made coming and going so much easier. I highly recommend this hotel just keep in mind it is a bit noisy at night since you are in a business area.
