It's a wonderfully charming B&B in the heart of Carmel. The front desk staff was so warm and friendly. They recommended some great restaurants and even upgraded my room due to a minor noise the first night. They are very attentive and aim to please. I highly recommend this lovely place.

This delightful, historic Inn welcomes and pampers their guests and their dogs. Spanish Colonial architecture includes a comfortable "living room" with piano, large fireplace and deep comfy sofas. Terry's Lounge offers a very nice, well-priced menu and bar; no puppies here. Protected, inviting patio with fireplace and heaters. Typical of an older hotel, rooms vary. Helpful front desk and reservations... More

The Inn's location is excellent - an easy stroll to Carmel's awesome assortment of restaurants and shops. The Inn itself is beautifully designed and furnished for comfort indoors, in private or shared spaces, as well as the wonderful patio with heat on cool evenings. Food and beverages are exceptional, and the service is superb. Although our canine family members didn't... More

I love this hotel. It is a totally dog friendly hotel, and dog owners tend to be friendly people. Friendly people attract friendly people. The staff are super friendly! From the moment I checked in to this hotel, I loved it. As a matter of fact, I loved it so much that I had dinner seated right at the bar.... More

Formerly owned by Doris Day this is a stylish hotel in the heart of lovely Carmel. Rooms a touch small but very well appointed with free Wifi throughout. Good sleep quality though some noise from street cleaners and garbage collection in the morning! Great free breakfast included in room. Highly recommended

We stayed in Cypress Inn for four nights. The check in was a breeze, not to mention immediate help into hotel. Very friendly staff in reception desk, restaurant, bar, waiters, cleaning ladies. The entire experience made our stay magical. We absolutely enjoyed the lively energy coming from the court yard and the music which unfortunately is only 3 evenings. Our... More

We walked in off the street to secure a room and the reception staff were more than happy to sort us out a room they showed us two. Sherry and fruit nuts nuts and water provided and a complimentary breakfast included in the price. Don't be out off by the dogs there are clearly designated areas where dog owners can... More

We stayed here with our 3 year old golden retriever and had a nice time. There's a $30 pet fee which is reasonable. Location was perfect, within 3-min walking distance of everything Carmel has to offer (shopping, wine tasting, restaurants). Staff was friendly. There were TONS of dogs everywhere, so clearly the dog-friendly message has gotten out. Room was clean,... More

My wife and I have visited this wonderful inn over a dozen times over the last thirty years. In almost every way, it just keeps getting better and better. (The only caveat is that if dogs annoy you, you shouldn't stay here.) The dining at Terry's Lounge is spectacular (one of the top places for dinner in Carmel, and that's... More

This is a dog friendly hotel (we knew this when we booked) and was so cute because of this (We didn't have a dog!!) Dog biscuits on the counter at check in and dogs with their owners at the bar. Really unusual and nice to see. Fairy lights in the courtyard in the evening are lovely add ambience, Rooms fantastic,... More
