Highly recommend Happy Landings Inn, a 7 unit, recently renovated, friendly bed and breakfast located one block off of Ocean Ave. The inn keepers( Sandy and Dawn) could not have been more helpful or gracious!!! Our unit ( the Eastwood suite) was perfect for our weekend. Sitting room had comfy leather chairs and couch and a wonderful fireplace. Bedroom was... More

This B&B in Carmel was built in the mid 20s. it has a wonderful garden and each room is separate with different famous entertainer's names. We stayed in the 'White" room named after Betty White. The doors are old barn style doors and they all lead to the peaceful garden with beautiful flowers and fountains. Very soothing. The room is... More

In April, stayed for 2 nights in the Martin room. I loved that the inn is dog friendly, so we were able to bring the dog. I was with my daughter and I think between us, we had too much stuff, but there is limited surface space and the room, while cozy and perfectly outfitted, might have been best suited... More

I found this hotel through dog-friendly travel blogs and websites, and was a little bit hesitant to book this place because we've never been to Carmel, and it was our first time taking our dog Muffin with us on a road trip. We drove from Los Angeles, took 101 and PCH. While it was lovely to drive along the coast... More

Lovely 2 nights in this picture perfect location. We stayed in Hemingway which is snug but really nicely appointed. Best of all you're a few blocks up the hill from Carmel beach - I won't forget walking on to that beach late afternoon when we arrived - stunning. Lovely little breakfast included, super friendly staff, what's not to love?!

Love this hotel. The rooms are large spacious and upscale. We stayed in Hepburn which had a lovely seating area and plush duvet. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful and the breakfast in the room was delish. The location as others have said is perfect. Great stay!

Great location, walking distance to the beach & town. Beautiful grounds. We stayed in the Hepburn room, neatly decorated. Bed was comfortable. Very quiet, got a great night's sleep. Breakfast was good. Owner was nice.

This bed-and-breakfast is very unique in that each room has a different theme for a movie star. We stayed in the Audrey Hepburn room and were very impressed. The feel of the rooms is old but literally dripping with history. The room included complementary Sherry, several old Audrey Hepburn DVDs, and lovely quotes on the wall from her. If you're... More

Happy Landings was built as a "family compound" in 1926, and is a composed of a house at the front (there's one guestroom - Presley - on the ground floor) and two extended "cottages" that go back from the street on either side of central garden, containing the other rooms. My wife and I have stayed here a number of... More

My GF and I planned a spur of the moment trip down to Carmel. We arranged for a room that morning and drove in later that day. From the moment we got there, we loved the place! We were greeted by the staff (I forget your name...sorry!) as soon as we got there. She gave my dog a treat and... More
