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

We frequent Carmel and love it but this "inn" is lame. I've stayed in some of the best and worst places in the world for work and I'm no snob but We bought the most expensive expensive room they offer because it was our first time alone for a weekend since our first kid and #2 is on the way....

Loved the atmosphere, fire places, proximity to the ocean, rooms are well appointed and very clean - loved the tv in the bath/shower area and the stacking biforl doors opening up to a balcony overlooking the ocean - super spot!!

Everything has been said. I am not a big Carmel fan but this place is nice. Great location. Great rooms. Clean. Friendly. Close walk to ocean. Ocean views from rooms. We will be back. Lots of stairs, if that bothers you look elsewhere. Other than that I see very little negative. ................................

We checked out three other places in Carmel before choosing the Tally Ho, which was in a totally different class. The room and bath were very large, with a balcony and view of the ocean. The gas fire place heated the room quickly. Underground free parking is an unusual and added plus. Coffee and tea available all day. Very friendly... More
