    Very Clean, good location, attractive property. Could use a vent fan in bathroom, hooks or rods to hang towels/clothes in bathroom, new hairdryer and coffeemaker that would serve 2 cups without overflowing.

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

    Staff was very nice they let us check in at midnight even though their office was closed. The room has a microwave and a fridge which was awesome. The parking situation was interesting because the property is very compact but the man who helped us gave us a map and showed us where to park so it was fine. The property is a 5 min drive to restaurants and a grocery store in Carmel and 10ish minutes from canary row in Monterey. We ubered to Monterey and it was $15 both ways so if you want to hit up some breweries and drink a bit it’s definitely doable. Overall the property is very cute and the room is perfect if you’re planning on being out all day!
