Don't Ever Stay Here? Nonsense!
Whoever wrote that horrid review of the Pine Inn obviously had deeper issues. "The door didn't fit the door frame"? How is that possible? Did he even ask the staff for help, or just call them "rude" without ever trying them? In my travels, I've read a lot of hotel reviews. There's always ONE person who bad-mouths any property no matter how magnificent it is. Some folks aren't happy unless they're miserable, and I'm sure you know the type. Personally, my stay at the Pine Inn was outstanding. The staff was consistently smiling and friendly, the beds were warm and cozy. The room wasn't huge, but for God's sake, how much room do you actually need? The hotel is over 100 years old, so, naturally, the rooms won't be big by modern standards. And, yes, my room's door DID fit the door frame. Parking in Carmel is always a nightmare and always will be, but that's not the hotel's fault. Instead of moaning about how the hotel doesn't park your car for you, be grateful that they have a parking lot at all, since quite a few Carmel hotels WILL make you park on the street and NONE that I know of have valet parking. If you're travelling at all, you need to keep a positive outlook. Quibbling about every leaky faucet and creaking door just means you'd be better off staying home. Cheers!
