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

Situated near to a beach, the contemporary La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel offers 75 non-smoking guestrooms with views of the Pacific Ocean. Residing in a 4-story building, the hotel was opened in 1905 and renovated in 2012.

The hotel is located in the center of Carmel-by-the-Sea, 6.0 km away from Monterey Bay and 2.9 km from Pebble Beach Golf Links. The property lies within 1 km from the city center.

Guests will find shops and boutiques in the vicinity of the hotel.

A local bus stop is 350 meters away. 10 minutes' drive from Monterey Peninsula airport.

Rooms

The rooms in La Playa Carmel By The Sea Hotel are fitted with an iron with ironing board, wireless internet, individual climate control, satellite TV and a minibar. Most of the rooms offer a spectacular view of the garden. Decorated in fresh design with carpet floor, the rooms feature private bathrooms equipped with free toiletries, a shower and a bathtub.

Eat & Drink

Guests can start their day with buffet breakfast served at the lobby. The beach restaurant provides fine meals. The lounge bar serves coffee, champagnes and tea. Serving an array of dishes, Terrace Grill and Sade's Cocktails are just 100 meters away.

    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.
