3rd time here. OK for 1 night and Travelocity rate. Will never pay over $90 nor stay more than 1 night.No microwaves or coffeemaker in the rooms, so why the refrigerators? Decor is definitely shabby. Furniture old, dated. Needs at least new paint flooring new furniture, repairs (how hard is it to replace a towel rack that was missing)? No maintenance person? Breakfast room is nice, breakfast not so much. And so many things plugged into various outlets, power strip (fire hazards) such as lamps, click radio, TV's, fan, space heater). On plus side, my beds have been comfortable, linens clean. Area is quiet.

Basic hotel room in need of an update

Pros: Our room did have a peak ocean view.
Cons: The owners need to update and improve the room and they could provide a true breakfast.
The room was very tired and run down. The bathroom had rust on the towel bars, a cracked tile floor. Bedding was in need of an update. The breakfast was just cereal or make your own waffle. No fresh fruit or muffins. The shutters were broken so you could not close them properly. Ijoked with my husband that it felt like we were in a youth hostel.

Average experience

Nice room and front desk staff. Ocean view exaggerated. Booked an ocean view room which you could not see the ocean from. Breakfast terrible. Set plates on a table full of dirty plates, and the staff member Patel made a scene in front of other customers, telling me to take my dishes to the kitchen. I took my dishes and my girlfriend's into the kitchen. He then started me down as I walked out. I told him the rest of the dishes in the table weren't from us. He continued to stare me down and embarrass me in front of other diners. Really disrespectful. Perhaps because he was Indian and I'm white he didn't like me having an Indian girlfriend. Also, the breakfast they offer was literally toast, two cereals with milk that looked curdled, and waffle makers with batter next to them. The batter was badly made and as a result the waffle didn't cook fully. Went and spent $35 eating a real breakfast. So, advertised free breakfast is not worth $1, and the 'free parking' is a lot with 6-8 spaces, and you'll be told to just park on the street, because it's free in Carmel anyway, if it's full.
