We stayed one night while traveling south on the Pacific Coast Highway and wished we has stayed longer. The Inn is very small, cozy, charming, comfortable, and quiet. Exactly what we needed. We stayed in the Martin room. The bathroom is very small but adequate and the rest of the room suited us well. There is no a/c but we... More

This is not your average hotel, it feels like an oasis of calm in the already laid back atmosphere of Carmel! We stayed in the "Hepburn" room and it was just so comfortable and peaceful that it was a wrench to leave. Breakfast is a treat, delivered to your door every morning when you raise your room blind, what a... More

A very quaint, friendly and comfortable B&B hotel. We stayed in the Betty White room - one of the six individual and separate guest rooms situated around a pretty courtyard. Although old (the door was the original one from 1926!) all of the buildings seem very well cared for - and our room had all 'mod cons' like WiFi and... More

This is very charming B&B in Carmel. Our room was the Hepburn room and it was accompanied with pictures of Audrey with several books about this famous actress. It was clean and well appointed. We had breakfast with friends on their outdoor patio - delicious. We finished each evening with a glass of wine by their outdoor fireplace. I would... More

We recently had our wedding in the Carmel area and Happy Landing was the perfect spot for the wedding party to stay for the weekend. We were also able to have Sunday brunch in the courtyard for many of the wedding guests the following morning. Dawn and her staff were amazing and the food was great. The inn was very... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and it is the perfect romantic getaway. We stayed in the Martin Room, which was extremely cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. I loved the fireplace in the room. The inn and the room were both incredibly clean. Everything was newly renovated and the look of the Inn was updated. Both mornings we... More

We decided to stay here because it is dog friendly ($40/per for 2 dogs) and close to the beach. Glad we did! The location is wonderful - about 5 blocks from the most dog friendly beach in the world. And the proprietor, Dawn, was super accommodating and nice. She gave us sheets to put over the bed and furniture too,... More

Super cute little property with cozy little jewel box rooms. The grounds are immaculate, some rooms are quite tiny but still very very comfortable, the larger Rooms and Suites offer more sitting space and storage but all of the rooms are tall on charm. If you travel with more than one smallish bag don't book a small room-it's tight on... More

My wife and I spent a weekend in the Hepburn room in mid-July, while on a coast vacation with our Wheaten Terrier. The service was impeccable, from the private breakfasts to the special treatment for our pup. Location is perfect...a short walk off the main drag, well within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. In fact, I don't think... More

Very pretty courtyard and room was adorable. Dawn was great and breakfast served in room was delicious-would recommend. we did not being a dog but many did. We heard no barking, so it's great even without a pet. The only drawback was our room (the White room) had a small bathroom and the sink was in the room- not the... More
