Old school Carmel property prepping for a remodel
This is a typical Carmel old-school motel. Smaller rooms, small restroom, funky stairs and hallways. The front desk service was excellent and employees are eager to please. But the property has seen better days--the drained and deserted swimming pool is a particularly poignant site--and a remodel/rehab is scheduled to begin in August, with a restaurant moving into the corner space on the property. It'll be interesting to see the final result..

Teeny tiny room; a coffee maker and refrigerator would be a great improvement. The office person was very helpful and pleasant.

There was no coffee maker in the room, no mini refrigerator or microwave. We did the like the soap and shampoo dispensers. Light in room was very poor to read by at night.
