So nice to have a fireplace in the room and the bed was heavenly! The included breakfast was delicious, too. Definitely my favorite place to stay in Carmel. This was my third stay here in the same room: the Eastwood suite.

This place is wonderful! We stayed in 2 rooms, the Hemingway and Hepburn. Hemingway: super tiny but cute. The perks: cheapest room, nice garden views, and the room is nice and clean. Drawbacks: tiny! The toilet doesn't have a door - just a sliding thingie so there's zero privacy to do your thing. Sink is in the room. Overall, this... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Happy Landing Inn in Carmel on our way up the coast, and it was INCREDIBLE! I spent a week researching the best B&B to stay at in Carmel- Happy Landing Inn was adorable, centrally located, well decorated, very clean, and one of the more affordable options in Carmel! It was about... More

This is a wonderful little inn right off the main drag in Carmel. The staff is incredible warm and welcoming and make you feel like you are staying with family. The proerty is small and cozy with comfortable room filled with character. We stayed in the White room, named for Betty White, who also lives in Carmel. The courtyard and... More

Originally built in 1926 by Carmel masterbuilder M. J. Murphy as a private home. This hotel underwent a beautiful renovation in 2914. Each room has been decorated to represent a Great American Icon, such as Betty White, Elvis, Audrey Hepburn or Clint Eastwood. My favorite room is the Eastwood room with its cozy sitting area with fireplace. The grounds are... More

This is one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in- cozy, friendly, convenient and full of character. Staying in the Martin room was perfect and fun. As we got to tour around the other rooms over some days there doesn't appear to be a downside to any, although we didn't see the Presley, but heard it was nice. The Martin... More

I can't state enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the Happy Landing Inn. The staff and proprietor were all so welcoming of us and our two dogs. We planned our trip stop in Carmel primarily because we know it to be a place that is very welcoming to dogs, and we weren't disappointed. Upon checking in, we were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our West Coast tour. The welcome we received was warm and friendly. We stayed in the Eastwood Suite, which was spotlessly clean and had the added bonus of a separate lounge area. We needed help with a local taxi firm and it was no problem to the Ladies there, they arranged... More

Would definitely go back to Happy Landing Inn. As you arrive you are greeted by the most friendly ladies, and you walk back to your room through a beautifully manicured garden. Once inside the room, we rented a king room with a Marilyn Monroe theme, you have all of the comforts of home. Including a decanter of Sherry. It also... More
