Very charming B&B with great breakfast and location, although are room had very narrow steps up like going into a tree house. Close to the beach and away from the stores and restaurants to give it a very quiet spot to stay.

This is a cute cottage type Inn that meets all of your needs. Staff is friendly & accommodating. Very clean, comfortable and might I add quiet! The continental breakfast was very very tasty - they even served it to your room without any hesitation. I wiould definitely recommend this Inn! The Totman's - Royal Oak Mi

We arrived late and our gps took us to the totally wrong stop. We drove around until we found phone coverage and called the hotel. The receptionist helped us find our way. As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed by the receptionist. As it was late he gave us details of a delicious pizza place for pizzas to...

A perfect find! Just a short walk from downtown and the ocean, we stayed in the Pine cottage. A hobbit hole but with enough room for yoga exercises. Delicious buffet breakfast with tasty coffee and the Sunday newspaper. Delightful staff, very helpful with local events and trip plans. All this and beautiful Carmel as well.

Quaint and quiet with a welcoming and attentive staff. A little dated in terms of decor, but it's part of the overall B&B motif. Very busy at breakfast, but staff works hard to make it work. Great location.

Checked in around 2pm, obvious there was an issue with the water supply. We went out to explore this beautiful town, returning around 10.30pm to find that we were to be relocated. No attempts to contact us whilst we were offfsite. Office not manned after 9pm. The onsite housekeeper was either stoned or drunk. An hour later we are still...

Clean and friendly inn steps away from the beach and the heart of picturesque Carmel. Has the drawbacks of old structures (narrow paths, steps, etc.), but this is an immaculate and very friendly property. This makes for a very sweet stay. Included breakfast is very fine.

Set back on a side street thick with trees, this collection of small cottages does not feel like a hotel, motel or even an Inn. The welcome was familiar and the privacy of our room, with the car conveniently outside, made us feel at home.

“We booked a 2 room suite. The reason I gave a 4 star for sleep quality is because I had the smaller room with what looked like a futon. My other family members had the main room with a queen size bed. Their quality of sleep was excellent. I enjoy the fact this hotel did not require a minimum time of stay with such a short notice”
