Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel is run down, filthy and unsafe. It does not look like the pictures. Stained carpet, dirty, cracked bathroom, rusted refrigerator bottom. We did not stay there and canceled on the spot. Now both the hotel and Expedia are not refunding our money and giving us the run around. Beware of false advertising

We LOVED this place - so much so that we ordered the sheets! Breakfast was delivered and was delicious. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming. Dog friendly and just so lovely and quiet. Can't WAIT to come back!

Pleasant Surprise
The Carmel Valley Lodge was a pleasant surprise. It is an updated motel, but the linens and towels were new and first rate. Theresa at the front desk and Diane in the restaurant could not have been nicer. We were there during COVID restrictions so the breakfast was not their usual, but everything was clean, the food was good and there was plenty to choose from. You can walk to the tasting rooms and restaurants in the Carmel Valley Village. Definitely good value and convenient location.
