The name references State Senator Tickle, who owned the property many years back, and his wife, who loved flowers, esp. pink ones. The inn is perched on a cliff road high above the coast. We stayed at the Senator's Cottage, a separate building with two bedrooms that is down from the main inn. The cottage has its own private patio,... More

My husband and I decided last minute to drive up to Carmel for our 20th wedding anniversary. This inn looked beautiful and they just happened to have 1 room available for 1 night. We had the best time. Complimentary champange with a personal note from the manager was brought to our room right after we checked in. The service was... More

You are out of town in the Carmel Highlands and it view and setting are amazing. Our room was very well done with nice amenities. Never turned the TV on because the views from the balcony are all you need. Romantic and quiet with good service. Nice wine and chees hour and a nice breakfast. Easy access to the town... More

One of my great aunts stayed here with her husband on their honeymoon almost sixty years ago. We loved this hotel! It was perfect! We chose a room overlooking the ocean with a whirlpool tub, fireplace and large balcony. We had champagne and strawberries waiting for us when we arrived and we were so impressed with the helpful staff and... More

We stayed only one night at the Tickle Pink inn. We enjoyed the wonderful view from the private balcony. The room is clean and cozy. The bathroom has jetted tub bath. The inn gave us the champagne and chocolate. The wine and cheese reception is good. The staffs were friendly. We will stay longer next time.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Tickle Pink Inn. The staff was so very helpful. The views were lovely from our balcony. Wine and cheese every evening and a lovely breakfast each morning. What's not to love?

We only had one night in Carmel and fortunately the Inn was able to accommodate us. What a lovely hotel! Most rooms appear to have a balcony, though ours did not - but it did have a gorgeous view from the big picture window. We could hear the ocean with our window open...so peaceful. They had a wine and cheese... More

We came here to celebrate our 1yr anniversary and I'm so glad we did! Room was so cozy, lots of attention to detail for amenities, etc. They brought us champagne and chocolates on our arrival. That was so wonderful. And like everyone says......the views are just amazing. It's like you never wanted to ever leave your patio. You just wanted... More

From the moment we checked in, we fell in love with this place. They even had binoculars available for our use. Room is fabulous and the view is magnificent. Cocktail hour on the Terrace was wine and cheese's. Breakfast was also included. We will come back in the near future.

Exceeded our expectations. View was incredible from the room and the balcony. Staff was extremely efficient in meeting any of our needs. Continental breakfast and cheese / wine happy hour were offered on an ocean front terrace (with glass panels to protect from the wind) but able to enjoy the stunning views. Real wood fireplaces with logs replaced daily (house... More
