What a great hotel this place is! We can't wait to go back. It felt quaint, atmospheric, cosy, and the staff were WONDERFUL. Special mention about Khamis and Randy who were extremely friendly and helpful. Great location too, close to the beach AND the shops... can't ask for anything better!

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Cypress Inn. It was an amazing start to our vacation together. We had trouble with jet lag and wound up awaking very early to find that coffee was already ready downstairs and the fireplace lit for our enjoyment before the rest of the inn (and city) awoke!! And the popovers for breakfast... More

We enjoyed our weekday stay at the CI. It is centrally located - one block off Ocean Ave - and within walking distance to preferred restaurants. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Bartender was courteous and allowed me to sample two tequilas I was unfamiliar with, prior to ordering. Room was nice and bedding excellent. The hotel was built in... More

I am deeply saddened to write this review. I am a triple legacy to the Cypress. My grandparents and my parents all were loyal patrons. After staying there for over 30 years and then some, I stayed there last Saturday and I have to say, I was appalled. The place I know and loved for so many years is gone.... More

The Cypress Inn has an excellent location only one block from Ocean Avenue for shopping and restaurants. The main part of the Inn is the original historic hotel now owned by Doris Day and her Investors Group. Adjacent to the Inn is the newer annex, that has central air and heating. The Inn serves a complimentary breakfast in Terry's Lounge... More

Hello EdwardSanDiego, Thank you for your recent review of Cypress Inn! As you are aware parking is a challenge for everybody in Carmel, however the beauty of our little city is that once you are parked you almost never need to use your car again since you just about walk anywhere you want to go! It sounds like you had... More

We really enjoyed our stay here even though we were booked in for just a night. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious with lovely views over the quaint courtyard area. The Doris Day memorabilia dotted round the hotel made it really interesting. The cocktails were excellent and we really enjoyed the meal in... More

this classic carmel boutique hotel is so charming and beautiful! Our suite was lovely, beautifully decorated, we stayed in September (my husband and i along with our 4-year-old son). bathroom was amazing with both a shower and a separate giant-whirlpool bath tub that is big enough for 5 people! The room was huge, a king bed suite with separate living... More

Hi Rosie, What a fantastic review, thank you! I am delighted to read that your family had such a great experience at Cypress Inn and Carmel-by-the-Sea in general... it is a magical location (and the Popovers most definitely help)! I hope that you will come and visit us again soon, especially when the New York weather isn't cooperating. Cheers! Crystal... More

great Carmel location for dog lovers. Doris Day's hotel is a throw back to the 50's. relatively small, cozy boutique hotel is home for many with dogs visiting Carmel. We currently do not have a dog so it was fun to play with others. there are only about 30 rooms, elevator access is limited, rooms just slightly old. But it... More

After reading the reviews about the Cypress Inn and knowing that Doris Day was instrumental along with her business partner in owning/operating this establishment, we couldn't resist and booked a date to visit Carmel by the Sea. From the time of the initial booking, we were met with the kindest and most caring individuals over the phone and via email,... More
