I had a two day trip to Carmel planned and didn't want to stay in one of the over-priced, usually tacky dolled-up motels in Carmel. I decided to stay at Mission Ranch, the property bought several years ago by Clint Eastwood in order to protect the land. I stayed in the Farm House in a queen-bedded room. It definitely had... More

Stayed in the Hayloft room for 4 nights in June 2014. Nice room and huge bathroom/dressing room. No doubt - the decor is out of date now but it was clean and comfortable. The real attraction is the ranch setting and the nice tennis club attached. It is not a hotel and not five star - but we really enjoyed... More

Had a lovely dinner there. Just remember to take a jumper / jacket. Middle of summer and it was cold on the patio. Otherwise beautiful location and great food. Reservations not allowed but we got seated in about 15 mins on a Friday night.

Only stayed for one night in Carmel and chose this location. Check in was smooth parked close and the room was very nice. We had a good view from the balcony out over the fields to the sea. We used the restaurant which was convenient and had a good nights sleep. The room is probably due for a refurb, it... More

We paid $300 ish for a basic room looking at the pasture out to the beach...Yes bathroom needs a face lift and yes the carpet and bedding should get updated-but the patio with charming rockers, sheep right outside, and the fireplace are what make it great. The charm the palce exudes is catchy and for an area that specializes in... More

We went to the restaurant for drinks (wine and beer) and appetizers and were pleased by the restful sheep grazing off the patio. We could sit there all night! They will not light the heaters for only apps, diners only, but that was ok with me, I understand. We could take up some valuable dining property there~ We just had... More

I've stayed at the Mssion Ranch in the Farmhouse, and eat at the restaurant at least four times per month when I'm in Carmel for the July and August events. There's nothing like the Mission Ranch. As an inn, it's charming and warm with wonderful rooms. That it's owned by Clint Eastwood is a big plus! The restaurant is always... More

We stayed at the Mission Ranch on Memorial Day weekend for my sister-in-laws wedding and it was beautiful. We had a cute main barn room and the views were fantastic from everywhere. We even saw Clint Eastwood and he took a picture with my now brother-in-law who is a Marine. The complimentary breakfast by the tennis courts was just right... More

We had one of the meadow view rooms. Very pleasant. I would describe the room as rustic yet clean and well maintained. Parking is wonderful! Other places we've stayed at in Carmel have lacked parking.
