    "We found it to be a treasure!"

    We were very happy for the nightly rate compared to the other offerings in the area at outrageous prices…it was gorgeous with sunshine all around.

    Our room was clean, spacious, and pleasant. Our room was cleaned very well while we were out for the day each time, they re-did it like it was when we arrived. Plenty of towels were provided and changed out daily, which I usually find to be a problem at most inns and hotels. All in all this place was a great place to stay in the area when visiting Carmel, Monterey, and Big Sur. It made a very nice "home base" to come back to after each outing. I'd stay there again without question!

    "A Great Stay!"

    Speeding up the 1 after a visit to Hearst Castle, we made the late checkout of 8pm at 8:45pm. The young man at the front desk was refreshingly cheery, and checked us in with no problems….our room was clean, pleasant, and simple….everything was remarkably clean, which is more important to me than decor…. The staff is very friendly and the location is great.

    "WOW! What a pleasant surprise"

    Check-in was a breeze, the concierge was very courteous and efficient. We arrived much earlier then expected, but we were still able to check into our room early. Hotel is completely secluded with no road noise and stunning gardens throughout. The room was even better with a private wood deck, king bed, and a huge bathroom. The wicker decor surprisingly fit in with the room and wasn't a distraction.

    The service here was outstanding. We woke up and went to breakfast. Great breakfast, especially since it was free with the room! When we asked for some additional cream, the attendant was back in ten seconds with it. Every request was met with a smile and fast service.

    Quiet and Beautiful

    I stayed at the Hidden Valley Inn. Very comfortable room. Wonderfully peaceful setting. Mountains, trees and clear skies. Very upscale breakfast area with a great view. Great staff. Can't wait to stay there again.

    Quick Get Away

    When ever we want a little get away close to home we always visit the Country Garden Inns. The gentleman (Skip I believe his name is) is always very friendly. The rooms are always clean and decorated very cute. The complimentary breakfast and wine-and-cheese hour is complimented with beautiful views of the lush green valley. This inn is a very quiet place and perfect for relaxing by the pool.
