I found this hotel many years ago (1995, maybe) while on a business trip. I wanted a place with a great view of the Pacific and great service, and the Tickle Pink Inn did not disappoint. In our party, 2 of the 4 of us couldn't walk long distances, and this is a very "compact" inn, which was good for... More

Outstanding service - everyone from front desk to bellhop to housekeeping was genuinely nice and thoughtful! They spared no effort in making us feel welcomed. We arrived one day earlier than planned but special arrangements were made to accommodate us in connecting rooms. Room decor was a little dated but it was spacious, clean and came with sweeping views of... More

The Tickle Pink has become the standard by which Huck and I rate each hotel's romantic ambiance. Do they serve champagne when we arrive, like at the Tickle Pink? Is the whirpool outdoors like at the Tickle Pink? Is Carmel right down the road? (Ok, that's not fair. But it matters.) We arrived at Tickle Pink on a late winter... More

Mesmerizing sunsets with a glass of wine, coffee in the morning on your private balcony. I can't think of a better way to celebrate 25 years together! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us . We hope to see you for another anniversary celebration. More

An experience of a lifetime! The suites are amazing! Watch whales from the balcony, have hot chocolate by the fire, and after a very relaxing bath in the sunken tub, enjoy a romantic evening with your best love! The ocean view with waves crashing on the rocks is simply breathtaking! Loved the Tickle Pink Inn!

A friend who knows the Carmel area told us about the Tickle Pink. We were charmed from the minute we checked in. Our large balcony overlooked a cove, on the left and the magnificent Pacific on the right. The room had first class features, many I have never seen in a hotel room before. We watched the sunset from a... More

we went last year and returned this year with friends. Everybody loved the hotel, the friendly staff and only wished we had had more time to spend there. Room very comfortable and complimentary sparkling wine very welcome. The breakfast is excellent. Couldn't recommend the hotel more highly. We will be back whenever in Carmel.

Generous is the best way to describe this hotel! Generous views, generous breakfasts, generous wine reception every night. The staff is super kind and responsive to every need. The wine and cheese reception nightly featured unlimited great wine and a big spread of cheeses, olives, crackers, sweets - we made a meal out of it one night. Breakfasts were wonderful... More
