1 South: Carmel, The Hideaway


The Hideaway  Junipero St./8th Ave., 2 blks. from downtown, (831) 625-5222.  24 rooms; 2 stories.  Some gas fireplaces and kitchens.  Afternoon snack; buffet breakfast.  Pets ok.  No onsite parking; plenty of free street parking.  Built motel-style around a central courtyard with fire pit, this property makes good use of lovely river stones from the Carmel River.  Hot and cold drinks are available in the lobby from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and in the afternoon, wine and small snacks are provided for a guest gathering.  The European-style breakfast buffet can be enjoyed inside, or out on the often-sunny central patio.  Cruiser bikes are available for use at no charge.  Rooms are decorated in a sleek contemporary style in neutral tones.  All but two rooms have king beds (the other two are queens).  Some rooms have a microfiber couch that folds out to a queen-size bed.  Three rooms have a standard bathtub.  Toiletries are in large unbranded bottles and to be used on site only, but a small and fragrant slice of lavender hand soap is provided.  In this U-shaped building, all guest rooms face the common courtyard; corner room 17 is particularly spacious and includes a view of the far-off ocean.
