I want to update my review by saying that apparently the room you select can make or break your stay at this hotel. Since so many review this hotel as a top hotel, I feel compelled to let others know this is more of a B & B to avoid unrealistic expectations. I will say it's in an ideal location.... More

You could'nt ask for a better dog friendly place to stay in Carmel. The staff is great but the rates are pretty high. The location is great. Lots of pet friendly restaurants nearby. We will go again but stay in a different room. Ours was a pricy one but on the street and noisy.

We stayed at The Cypress Inn for over 20 years. The location, friendliness, atmosphere and personnel have always tried to make make us feel at home and tried to accommodate any requests. The Cypress Inn is a dog friendly hotel, so expect to see and hear the dogs at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and on the patio. For the most part,... More

I bring my kids and dogs to the Cypress every couple of years, since they all enjoy the staff, nice rooms, and Doris Day-filled memorabilia. Can't beat the location, and breakfast is great. It's not cheap, but there is no place quite like it. A quintessential Carmel experience.

We found this inn based upon Trip Advisor reviews, and very pleased. What a charming and hospitable inn. Staff spectacularly friendly and helpful, very generous and thoughtful touches. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed one night in April on business trip. Some kind of event going on, hotels were all at crazy prices, Cypress at least seemed a reasonable price-to-quality ratio! Hotel is very well located, right off the main shopping street in the middle of downtown Carmel. Within steps of like a thousand restaurants, maybe 10 minutes walk to the beach. Free... More

What a wonderful place. Kind of cool enjoying cocktails and eating with well behaved dogs. And I'm not talking about the people I traveled with, lol. The Cypress Inn is very pet friendly. What kind of surprised me was how with the exception of the public spaces, I never, ever saw the dogs. It was also very quiet.

We always stay here when in Carmel. Dog friendly (but we don't have dogs). Located in town. Step out the front door and shops are right there to explore. In room brandy is free, but we do not partake. Continental breakfast including eggs and potatoes is included.

My husband and I have stayed at two other similarly priced (and highly rated) hotels in Carmel. The Cypress Inn was by far the best. Why? Exceptionally friendly service. Updated decor that pays homage to its wonderful history. Convenient downtown location so we can walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. Clean rooms -- I can't stand staying in rooms... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel. Love the dog friendliness of all staff and visitors. Love the history and all the good that Doris day has done for animals in general. Rooms a little small but understandable in an older establishment.
