    Loved the ocean view! Disappointed the Pacific Edge is not open for dinner yet due to recent re-opening of the Hyatt Carmel Highlands for lodging. Breakfast and lunch only at this time.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Our room offers an astonishing view of Big Sur, which is unbeatable. The room equips with full kitchen though we didn’t use it. Restaurant on site offers panoramic view and the food is great and reasonably priced. The hotel is driving distance to all attractions, which is convenient. The furnitures and carpet are a bit outdated which caused a smell after an initial entering of the room. Overall, we had a good stay. Will recommend.

    Smoke filled room

    The room had a strong smell of burning wood that never went away. The rooms below us had wood burning fireplaces and the ocean breeze blows the smoke into the room. You can never sit on your balcony or leave your door open as the smoke comes right in your room. In the morning you will awake with dry throat, red eyes and and a headache. It doesn’t matter if your door is closed or not. Unless you like everything in your including yourself to smell of smoke Do Not Stay here. Check in was nice and friendly. Check out they didn’t ask or care how your stay was. The place also needs updating. Views are the only redeeming quality.

    would have liked the firewood closer to the room, and the property has only two hot tubs, it probably needs about eight for the size of the property. Also, some type of breakfast delivery option would be useful. There are no restaurants near the hotel, and the kitchen is closed for covid. Staff very professional and everyone helpful. Will stay again.

    The hotel was clean. The views were amazing. The only thing that bothered me was this really annoying beeping noise that lasted throughout the night on both our nights there. Other than that it was great.
