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

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

Once again we stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn in Carmel Highlands. The views are outstanding. We are two couples who travel annually to California and from time to time, spend a few days in Carmel. Unfortunately, the weather never seems to cooperate and provide sunny skies - but it does not matter. There is really nothing better than a... More

For a splurge getaway after business in San Francisco, we stayed for three nights in Carmel Highlands at the Tickle Pink Inn, with the intention of using the Inn to explore nearby Big Sur (the Big Sur section of Route 1 begins just a few miles south of the Inn) and Point Lobos. The timing for our stay was problematic... More

My husband and I travel quite a bit. Our children are all over the country so we visit them often; plus we have a very large extended family so often meet up with friends for an enjoyable reunion. We select our hotels based on Trip Advisor Reviews and only select hotels where service is the establishment's primary concern. After all,... More

The Tickle Pink Inn was a three-night stop along our two week honeymoon traveling California. We enjoyed our stay. The location of the Inn is impressive, the views from every hotel room are breathtaking and the wine reception/breakfast area provides 360 degree, panoramic views of The Pacific. The room was spacious and very well kept. The staff were inviting and... More

From the moment we stepped into the lobby and smelled home baked cookies and then walked into our room and saw the balcony overlooking the Pacific, we knew we were in a piece of paradise. We borrowed binoculars to watch all the whales passing by, enjoyed wonderful cheese assortment with great wines while visiting with other guests in the afternoon,... More
