Something with an old world charm.
Check out Asilomar. It's a convention center, but close to all the world class golf places, and the spectacular 17 mile drive. Gorgeous area, and I think the price is reasonable, and that you could ride a bike into town. Haven't stayed there myself, and it's been years since I stayed in Carmel, so sorry I can't suggest a specific B&B or something. almost 7 years ago
