Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • No air-conditioning in rooms, only the main building has climate control
  • Some complaints of street noise
  • Those looking to frequent Carmel have a 10-minute drive

Bottom Line

The 93-room Hotel Abrego's style lies in the nice middle ground between "family casual" and "acceptably business chic." The spacious guest rooms are painted in muted earth tones and come complete with flat-screen TVs, fireplaces, iPod docks and comfortable bedding. The most notable drawback is the rooms' lack of air-conditioning: Even with the temperate California climate, the au naturel "open a window" method does little to bring the temperature down during a heat wave. But the hotel's fantastic location within walking distance of the beach, downtown, and Fisherman's Wharf is a clear perk.
