2016 Carmel Day 2

Given that Sharon had a midday appointment, we were up at 6 am and on the road by 6:45 am. Waze routed us away from the South Bay traffic through Pacheco Pass to I-5. With a long Starbucks stop and a short stop for gas, it took us 3 hours 35 minutes to get back to Carmichael...

Both Sharon and I were very disappointed in the La Playa Hotel. Given what we paid for one night, the room was mediocre. The bathroom on the other hand was horrible. We have traveled all over the world and this was probably the worst bathroom ever. The bathroom door only opened part way before it hit the vanity. The toilet lid hit you on the back when you sat down and the lid wouldn't stay up by itself. The front desk staff was abrupt and very unhelpful. We are not ever going back...

Two hotel that we walked through on Wednesday looked interesting for our next trip: the Cypress Inn and the L'Auberge Carmel. The Cypress looks particularly interesting.
