We enjoyed staying here in June for 2 nights. The room was adorable-cedar floor to ceiling, complete with fireplace. The innkeepers were all very nice and personable. Breakfast was a good mix of continental and something warm. The first breakfast was a broccoli and mushroom frittata, and the next morning was a choice of eggs & sausage or a waffle.... More

We stayed here for one night and really loved it. The room was well equipped, the little log fire is a lovely touch. Having cheese and wine in the breakfast/reception area as a 'freebie' was a surprise and much appreciated. Breakfast was excellent and the homemade granola was the best I've ever had. Highly recommended.

We greatly appreciate your comments, especially regarding the Granola. Susan takes such pride in having created a recipe that is a hit with our guests. And we sure agree with the wood burning fireplaces...cozy, romantic and charming. Thank you from all of us, Julian More

My wife and I stayed there for one night recently. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and our room was great. It was one of their less expensive rooms, but was perfect. The bed was very comfortable. The suggestions of where to go during our short stay were very useful and added significantly to a wonderful trip.... More

Thank you. Your comments about our recommendations of things to do and see highlights something I have tried to accomplish in each of the now 18 Inns i have owned since 1966: give the guest a lot more than a room however grandly furnished or decorated; give the guest an experience; one they will remember and cherish over the years....

On several stays I've never found anything but pleasure at Carmel Garden Inn. The rooms are charming (excellent beds) and the staff warm and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast in the cheery dining area always includes something homemade--cheese scones, frittata, waffles and more. Between 4 and 6 p.m. you're invited for wine, cheese, and dips (try the beet dip--trust me!). On... More

Thank you so very much for your special words and staying with us. We try really hard to please but I have to admit, ironing you linen was special to you. However, Dennis and Susan want me to set up an ironing board in the dining room and post my availability to iron. I am thinking about it. Anway, thank... More

We were apprehensive about taking our Border Collie on a family vacation, but Carmel and the Carmel Garden Inn made our three night vacation perfect. Our room had a large fenced in courtyard so our pet could wander in and out off our room. The room was very large with a small kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and sink, a sitting... More

You make all of us here at the Inn so very happy. Traveling with one's favorite friend, your dog, is always tedious for all of us. We love them so much and fear he or she will not be comfortable. That is one of the most important reasons Susan and I bought the Inn. We have these five large patio... More

We had a perfectly pleasant stay at the Carmel Garden Inn. It is located some 2-3 blocks from the heart of quirky Carmel and is therefore close by but nice and quiet. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and they work hard to make you feel right at home. Good place for exploring Carmel, Monterey, and the stretch of... More

We stayed in room 4 with our 13 month old. It was an easy walk into town so it was easy to make short trips with the baby. The best part, we like having plenty of room when coming back for nap time. There was a spacious patio we could sit out on and talk and relax. The bed was... More
