Bring the family for summer fun in carmel

For midweek nights in July

July is the perfect month to bring the family--and your pet--to enjoy the glorious weather in Carmel. We will waive one extra person fee or pet fee for any midweek (Sunday-Thursday) stay in July.

Carmel's white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets are within walking distance of your room! Get a picnic lunch and spend the day at the beach. Or rent a kayak. Or is this the year the whole family learns to surf? There are so many choices for some family fun. Let our front desk help you decide.

And, the beach is in walking distance of your room. It doesn't get any sweeter than that!
