After browsing through all the choices in Trip Advisor, we're so happy to have picked the Tally Ho for our stay in Carmel. Our room was huge and very comfortable with a great view from our terrace. They really pay attention to details and that makes your stay more enjoyable. If the rooms had A/C I would have given this... More

We stayed at the Tally Ho in a couple of weeks ago and couldn't have been happier. The location is great (right off Ocean Ave), the room was large and comfortable, and the view of the ocean from the balcony was spectacular -- it was a great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Very... More

Rooms are huge, big TV's flat screens, Jacuzzi tubs and private decks overlooking the ocean, majestic sunset! There is no a/c like most Carmel hotels, however, temperature is cold at night and they have fans in the room. Love to hear the sound of the ocean. 2nd time in Carmel and marked as favorite place to stay... Just a block... More

Small Inn in downtown Carmel,part of the Pine Inn. Some rooms have nice views. Parking garage under building. Rooms good size, reasonable rates, including breakfast. Decor needs to be refreshed, but not a problem. No A/C but seems to be common practice in Carmel. Staff helpful and responsive. Would stay here again.

Do yourself a favour & book a room here. It is probably the most beautiful room we have ever stayed in (ask for second floor since the view of the ocean is very good) We honestly considered staying & then cancelling reservations at another place we were headed to (for the duration of our week in California). Spectacular views from... More

Overly decorated rooms, no AC. Breakfast was not really what I would call breakfast. No milk, no decent fresh fruit. Couples staying there were at least 65 or older. Very close to the shopping area. Shopping is the major pass time in this city. Beach is nice, but no swimming.

As the General Manager of the Tally Ho Inn, I sincerely apologize to this reviewer. Obviously, the reviewer was expecting something much different. Classifying the hotel as a place for "Not for people under 60" is unfair to those younger couples that frequent the Tally Ho. Carmel-by-the-Sea was recently ranked by Conde Nast magazine as the 3rd most romantic city... More

This was a suite, over-sumptuously decorated, very close to the main drive and beach. It was expensive, but not overpriced compared to other places nearby. There was no AC (it was very warm when we were there). The breakfast was so bad, that it would have been better not to include it-not even milk for coffee, never-mind real food that... More

Our room had it's own private patio from which one had an unobstructed view of the ocean off in the distance. We loved that it had a gas fireplace, although we didn't need it because the weather and temperatures were perfect. The room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was large. If one is sensitive to morning light, I'd... More

Stayed 1 night at the Tally-Ho while making our way up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco in July. At check-in we were immediately upgraded to an ocean view room. We liked the room very much, especially considering the price that was very reasonable for such an upscale area. The downtown shops are right there with many art galleries... More
