Pet friendly (though expensive fee) great pool, breakfast buffet & great location. They have a small parking lot, overflow parking is in the neighborhood. 2 or 3 blocks to the beach, also, downtown is within walking distance. As previously mentioned, pet fee is steep- $250 per visit.

Can’t wait to come back. While it had been 20 years since my last visit, it still retains its pedigree. Totally relaxing and a real cut above. Falling asleep to sound of ocean waves was the perfect end to each evening. Loved it!

We couldn't have been more satisfied with our trip to Carmel and especially our stayat La Playa Carmel. The staff could not have been more helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be returning to La Playa Carmel on our next visit.

We lucked upon La Playa and were absolutely thrilled!! We and another couple travel around each year for our anniversaries and decided upon San Francisco and Carmel for this year. From the comfy rooms, the fun bar, delicious food, lovely pool to the great location!! And the staff did absolutely everything to make our trip memorable!! Definitely 2 thumbs up!

Love the grounds and room was nice. Unfortunately it’s not handicap friendly. Breakfast was wonderful cookies were great. We enjoyed the shuttle service and we didn’t have to drive and park and walk anywhere Michael the driver was wonderful.
