Demitri was amazing at check in and during our stay. Unfortuntaly, our first room was not up to par. The light bulbs were missing from both lamps and the toilet was clogged. Demitri arranged to have move to another room. We were thankful. Sadly in the new room, the shower plumbing was not working. We were standing in water up to our ankles. When we asked for it to be looked at someone came right up and said they fixed it. It was not fixed and we continued to have standing water up to our ankles. The hotel is just old and rooms are tiny. Pictures do not give an accurate representation of the hotel rooms.

Restaurant please
Hotel Carmel is a small quaint hotel in a great location. Just a block away from the beach. I would have liked a refrigerator in the room to store cold drinks. Also the website advertised a restaurant and bar, but there wasn’t one. Guests were sent around the corner to a small cafe for breakfast.
