Beautiful, cozy, warm and welcoming. Emil could not have been nicer and more helpful. Just what this solo traveler wanted. The rooms are clean, pretty and very comfortable. The location is perfect. The outdoor fire pit is delicious to sit by after the beach. I highly recommend Tally Ho!

This was a great choice for hotel. We only had one night to stay in Carmel and I wish we had longer. Stayed in the room that is shown in a lot of their pictures - 108 I think. It was spacious and comfortable. The deck was so relaxing. The bathroom was spacious and had a jacuzzi tub separate from... More

We usually stay at their main building, the Pine Inn. Found a great deal on a Sunday on Independence Day weekend at the companion building, the Tally Ho. They offered us an upgrade to king with an ocean view or $40 off Il Formaio, their restaurant, for dinner. We opted for the room upgrade and were very pleased. Spacious and... More

I have mixed feelings about Tally Ho. Great location, service was good, good breakfast across the street at Il Fornaio, nice bathroom and quiet. However, our room's furnishings and awkward layout were not commensurate with the price. The dark green carpet and bedspread and floral chair and table coverings and artwork were just plain weird-and a 60 inch TV on... More

Located only seconds to anywhere the Tally Ho Inn is well located to in the charming town of Carmel. Respectfully delivered from its early days as a stately home the hotel has been cleverly modified in to a welcoming lodging with lots of charm befitting the character of the town. Our room was clean, the bed provided a good night... More

Staying at the Tally Ho Inn never gets old. Its our go-to place for a refresher from our busy lives. The rooms are really spacious, have wonderful views, and the jacuzzi tub...... This inn is in the heart of all the great Carmel stuff - walking distance to beach, restaurants, shops, the Coach handbag outlet :-) At the Tally Ho,... More

We have been coming to Carmel for over 25 years and staying at the Tally Ho for the last 15 Plus years. We travel to Carmel at least four and usually no more than eight times during the year and always stay at the Tally Ho. We know the staff well, Ned, Gene, Emile, Jen and Lucille and they are...

The Tally Ho is a quintessential Carmel hotel. It is centrally located, and has all the amenities one could ever want for a weekend get-away. Our room had a private patio, Jacuzzi tub, television in the bathroom(!!) comfortable king bed with luxurious linens, and was incredibly quiet. It doesn't get much better than this. We arrived after having driven up... More

If you choose to stay in a hotel vs. a rental house, the Tally Ho Inn is a good option. We had a room with a large, magnificent balcony with two chairs, a table, and two very comfortable chaise-longues (unfortunately, it was cold and rainy, so furniture was wet some of the time - not the fault of the hotel!)....

The Tally Ho Inn is our favorite destination ANYWHERE, not just Carmel! Lucille and her staff are the most caring, courteous, helpful innkeepers you will ever find. They consistently go "above and beyond" what would normally be outstanding service, to do so many unexpected "little" things to make us feel extra special. We travel extensively, and have always come to... More
