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

The location of the Inn is superb. You can walk to all the restaurants in the area from there and can even take a nice stroll to the beach. Very close to ocean avenue and all the shops. The Inn itself was very charming. The room was clean and quaint. Stayed in the Dean Martin cottage, and was blown away... More

I booked the room "presley room" based on the glowing reviews, however to my suprise our room was in the basement. To make things worse, the office was right above our bed. So you can hear the clicking of clogs in the moring, 7:50 am and the same clicking noise from the owner's footsteps in the afternoon, until 6 pm,... More

We stayed 4 nights. The little cottages are each well appointed and themed after a movie star in a way that reflects the era in which these were originally built. Ours, the Dean Martin one, had a working fireplace. The grounds are pretty and private. Breakfast is served to you each morning. You are blocks from the center of Carmel... More

We loved our stay and the location is perfect. We stayed in the Martin room which is very small. It was nice to have the outdoor fireplace to enjoy in the evening since the room is really too small to sit around in. The outdoor space is beautiful . The proprietor is very friendly. Breakfast is good. I would suggest... More

We just completed a wonderful 3-night stay at the newly renovated Happy Landing Inn. We will definitely be back! We stayed in the Eastwood cottage, which is tastefully decorated in honor of Clint Eastwood (with black-and-white photos and other memorabilia). This is a great little suite for families -- big comfy king sized bed in the bedroom, with a small... More
