Editorial review:

This hotel has a great location close to the shops in Carmel and is two blocks away from the ocean. It has been renovated over the past few years, but critics feel that it's still a bit dated and that the rooms are old and uninviting. The bathrooms needed to be redone, according to some. The grounds and ambiance were highly praised, though.

Overview

Featuring a swimming pool, a courtyard and a library, La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel provides 75 rooms with a spectacular view of the garden. Residing in a 4-story building, the hotel was opened in 1905 and renovated in 2012.

The hotel has beautiful location in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea next to Point Lobos State Reserve and Monterey Bay Aquarium. Guests will find Carmel-by-the-Sea city center within a 10-minute walk from the property.

There are shops and boutiques located nearby.

A local bus stop is 350 meters away. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Monterey Peninsula airport by car.

Rooms

La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel offers rooms with a fresh interior, a seating area, a minibar, free Wi-Fi, heating and a patio. Some rooms feature views over the Pacific Ocean. A hairdryer, a bathtub and a shower can be found in all bathrooms.

Eat & Drink

            It is a nicely renovated Spanish style hotel with a great location in Carmel. The breakfasts were very good and it's nice to have an ocean view.

            The bathroom was very small with a bar size sink. The room rate was on the high side.
