I had a wonderful overnight at the beautiful Tickle Pink Inn near Carmel. I was a little nervous since I was booking one of the least expensive rooms at the inn. However, I was not disappointed at all. I loved the flowered balcony, the breathe taking view, and the charming room. I definitely would stay at Tickle Pink again if... More

If you can afford to spoil yourself, this is the place. Great room, great service, great atmosphere. A bottle of champagne is delivered to the room along with chocolates. The view is magnificent as each looks out on the Pacific Ocean. The wine and cheese hour and the breakfast are both good. We will return.

Gorgeous setting. My daughter and I spent three days in March. The rooms and view are beautiful. When we arrived, they delivered champagne and chocolates. The breakfast buffet was delicious! Carmel is such a wonderful little town. The scenic views cannot be described. Would return to the Tickle Pink Inn in a heartbeat!

This place is a hidden gem in the Pacific coast. They take care of every detail, from wine&cheese in a deck during the afternoon to a welcome bottle of champagne. The views are breathtaking and the location is superb. Prices are above average but worth paying if you are looking for a different hotel experience.

My wife and I travel quite frequently for business around the world. We both agree that the Tickle Pink Inn is our favorite place to stay. We love the gorgeous ocean views, the cheese and wine at sunset, and the friendly staff. Carmel by the Sea, Point Lobos State Park, and Pebble Beach are all within a short distance.

It was my birthday week-end. We were greeted with a bottle of Champagne. The room over looking the cove was lovely. Breakfast, afternoon wine & cheese was perfect. Fantastic ocean view, sunset over the water and moon rise behind the hill....romantic! Easy trip to Big Sur. We love the stay and will be back again soon.

We spent last weekend at this hotel. Wonderful rooms overlooking the ocean, big room, bathroom could be bigger, but it was fine. Afternoon wine and cheese is well done. Breakfast overlooking the ocean is great. Good selection of wines, cheeses, good service for housekeeping, front desk. All were friendly and accommodating . Breakfast and wine afternoon included in the price... More

What you see from the parking area of The Tickle Pink Inn, in no way provides a hint of the fantastic room and view that awaits. I do not know what the view is from other parts of the hotel because we did not want to leave our room, but I will say that the panorama that you are treated... More

My husband I and stayed here in early March to celebrate our babymoon and my birthday and we were very happy. This place hits all the marks for a pregnant lady and dad-to-be. Upon arrival, we were brought delicious sparkling non-alcoholic cider and a box of chocolates. The warm cookies in the lobby and afternoon wine (for him) and sparkling... More
