I'm looking for a clean, safe hotel to stay at with my wife and son that's walking distance from the pier and promenade that won't break the bank. Under150 if possible. Thanks!
It depends when you go. Even the Fairmont can have low prices but, have a look at the Hotel Carmel
I've heard great things about the Holiday Inn which is practically at the Pier's doorstep and a couple blocks (walking distance) to 3rd St. Promendade.
You can also check out Travelodge (reviews not as great as HI) which is just down the street from there. I'd probably go with the Holiday Inn but either one of these places should give you bang for your buck (especially for location you want). Safe...yes, clean...I'm assuming so! Have fun!
VYRDave has it right on for a hotel near the pier and a rate near the150 mark. See their website: oceanlodgehotel.com/index.ht...
Not a hotel but a motel just a 1/2 block from the pier is the Ocean Lodge right on Ocean Ave. It is plain but clean. Priced right and located right. Also a special discount now. See their website: http://www.hotelcarmel.com/
Take into consideration that the hotels in the area that are upscale have a rate double and up, than these two locations.
The H.I. starts at200. Yikes!
Ocean Lodge doesn't have a discount for when I'll be there, the beginning of April.
It's not looking good.
Check the Bayside also but, get a courtyard if you can't budget ocean view
There is a Travelodge at 3102 Pico
