Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
This hotel has great views and is a nice, quiet, private spot away from the more energetic Carmel. But in COVID, without any ammenities including food service, it ends up just being a big pain because it is too remote to access what you might need and they don't provide anything they might usually do pre-pandemic. Even the view was ruined by construction. Stay only if you want to be secluded from everything (including food options) or have a family which wants to use the pool. Otherwise skip and go to one of the many wonderful hotels closer to town.

This place is pure magic. My heart hurt to leave, and we will be back for sure! Serene, quiet, with a breath taking view. Just what we needed!

Pros: The location is great! We booked an ocean view room, and the view from our patio (Room #518) was amazing!! I've put a note to the hotel what it was for our 10 year anniversary, and we were greeted with a congratulatory comment by the front desk staff. You could reach the front desk via text which was very convenient. I highly recommend packing bathing suites for hot tub overlooking the Big Sur and booking around the sunset! I'd suggest booking a slot (30min) at time of your check-in. Cons: It's an old place, almost like cabin style. It's well maintained and the room is clean, but if you are looking for something luxurious, you might find this place too rustic.

We liked it staying there because we booked ocean view bedroom. But the only thing we didn't like it was soo cold in the room even we had fireplace in the room. And also parking was little far from our room.
