I love this hotel with or without my dogs. The location is great. The staff is super friendly. And the rooms are comfortable. I have stayed in both the old and the new part of the hotel. Some rooms ca be on the smaller side, but the beds are comfortable. There is a wonderful breakfast in the morning which can... More

You know from the outset when booking this hotel that is has as much quaint charms as the town of Carmel itself - even down to the canine focus. This didn't detract from a nice hotel though which proved a good base to explore.

I love this hotel not only because of the great location but the staff is excellent . My husband and I stay here at least once a year in the fall. The accommodations I think are very nice for a hotel that was originally built in the 1920's. Of course it has been remodeled since then, but you still have... More

This gem in Carmel can give you the true feel of the Carmel life. Carmel is a very dog friendly city and Cypress Inn allows dogs in the rooms and have a dog friendly happy hour at the bar Terry's. Price can be steep on important weekends but the rooms are a comfortable size.

We arrived in the evening and got a warm welcome. Very friendly front office at all times. We were four people and probably got one of the smallest and not a good situated room. It was no 107 and was just on top of the stairs with a tiny bathroom and a wall as view. Nevertheless the hotel has charm... More

As soon as I walked into the lobby I fell in love with the place. They had a lot of movie memorabilia about the lobby and as you walked through the hallway. Being there gave me nostalgia and I felt at peace immediately. Carmel is a beautiful town with beautiful little shops and art galleries so this hotel fit perfectly... More

A beautiful find in Carmel with a welcoming and attentive staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, we were pleasantly surprised by their friendliness. This place is very dog friendly and we are so grateful for this hospitality so that our dog was able to enjoy our quick family vacation along the coast. Carmel Inn is located an easy walk... More

Drinks in the courtyard, waiter a bit diffident, beautiful property environment. Dogs welcome everywhere which is always a nice ice breaker to interesting meetings, conversations and people. Some of the clientele swanning around is local, some a bit eccentric, all fascinating with their airs and graces. Difficult to get dining reservations as it is so known and popular so I... More

We started out with one night in Carmel, and kept adding a day, for a total of five nights in this very special inn. The staff is outstanding, Randy at the front desk is exceptional, as well as Crystal at the bar. We loved the location, the courtyard, beautiful lounge, and just people watching here. It draws a diverse crowd... More
