We had a good time in the Tickle Pink Inn but to be honest we expected more considering the price. The views and rooms are great. We ordered breakfast to our room and were a but disappointed. Some things were fresh but others (cheese, jams etc.) came out of a packet. But overall we had a lovely stay. The staff... More

My Wife and I stayed here for 10 days in Sept for our honeymoon. The view was absolutely beautiful. Sunsets from our balcony .... Just mesmerizing . We even saw some passing whales!, The hotels location on top of a hill in Carmel highlands gives it a great vantage point to the ocean . The hotel's staff was very professional,... More

this place is WONDERFUL; I had been anxious since I read a review that described it as a motor home drive in. Its FAR from that - Room 14 was FAB - the views breathtaking; enjoyed the wine hour and the breakfast. Actually could have sat in the room for our whole stay and enjoyed the view and fireplace. I'll... More

The location, the views, the attentive staff, the room itself and bathroom are so amazing, I find it hard to find the right words. It's not inexpensive but worth every penny and more to stay at the Tickle Pink Inn. The entire staff could not be nicer and so attentive. The rooms are so clean and so beautifully decorated as...

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Carmel. We stayed in the Senator's Cottage. . The cottage is separate from the rest of the resort and sits on top a cliff overlooking the ocean. The views are amazing! The cottage is so lovely, it almost has a fairy tale feel to it. Everything is newly updated and... More

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.
