It was my birthday weekend and we wanted to stay at a hotel with a view of the ocean. I cannot say enough positive remarks about this fabulous hotel. We had room 27 with a fireplace. We were lucky with the weather and had two sunny days, but lighting the logs in the fireplace at night made the room feel... More

We were at Tickle Pink Inn for a week the first week in February. What an incredible week it was. The Inn is absolutely beautiful. We were in Room 32 and I must say when we first opened the door the incredible view took our breath away. I cannot imagine giving this Inn any lower rating than 5 star. From... More

You get the idea. This place is amazing and all the other superlative adjectives you can think of. We made our original reservation courtesy of its TripAdvisor ranking since we were disappointed with the comments made about another place where we have stayed in the distant past. All of the other reviews you can read about this place are true... More

This was our second stay at the Tickle Pink and we fell in love all over again! We were married a few steps away at the Hyatt Highland Inn. Could have chosen to stay at the Hyatt, which is also very beautiful, but the cozy lovely rooms, the people at the inn, the complimentary breakfast and the cheese and wine... More

Hubby and i have been talking about Tickle Pink for a long time, so I made a reservation for a weekend in January to celebrate hubby's birthday. It wasn't cheap for our 2 night stay, but i am so glad we stayed there. The view alone....oh my goodness the view! I splurged a little bit and got an ocean view... More

Thank you for choosing to spend your husbands birthday with us. I am so glad you both enjoyed your visit. We do change our wine selection at wine and cheese, although we do it every few weeks as opposed to every other day. This is in hopes that previous guests will be able to try different wines next time they... More

My fiancé and I took a 3 day week-end to visit Carmel and Big Sur. We wanted to stay at a place with beautiful views of the ocean, personal service and a hot tub. The innkeepers surpassed all our expectations. There was a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates waiting for us upon check-in. The continental breakfast every morning was... More

Let me start off by saying that I am one tough customer. I pay attention to detail and I am hard to please. This hotel got everything right.
