This is truly a special slice of heaven located in Carmel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. My husband and I were upgraded to a suite, number 14 upon arrival. What a treat!! Our balcony was enormously large and well equipped with many loungers. The sunsets were a little cloudy, but who cares with the unbelievable coastline at your beck and call.... More

We were travelling from Australia to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and naturally wanted to stay somewhere in Carmel with a coast view. We couldn't have been happier with our room and choice of hotel. It is located above Carmel and our room had a gorgeous view of the cove. As soon as we got to our room a bottle... More

I am glad you enjoyed your visit to the West Coast and Tickle Pink Inn. We are very blessed with all of the natural beauty that surrounds us. I am sorry that our breakfast was not what you were expecting. We do change our breakfast menu each day, one of which we do serve a lovely eggs florentine dish, which... More

This is the most wonderful hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere. The most gorgeous views of the Coast and the beds are so soft and cozy. The patio area has adirondack chairs where you can sit and watch the waves and the friendly seagulls. Wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. Continental breakfast in the morning with the best,... More

We recently stated at the Tickle Pink Inn at Carmel Highlands in California. It was everything we could have hoped for in a romantic hotel. The view from our room was beautiful. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and the staff incredibly nice and professional. While it doesn't have a restaurant that isn't a drawback because the area is... More

I pulled in here after admiring the location from below while photographing the coastline-& was fortunate they had a last minute cancellation. The rooms are Four Season's-like and the views and service are to die for. A great place to stay while visiting Carmel, Point Lobos Reserve, 17 mile drive & all the wonderful Carmel restaurants & shops. A sumptuous... More

My husband and I recently stayed at theTickle Pink Inn and just loved it! Breathtaking views, comfortable room, lovely breakfast and happy hour make it a place I cant wait to return to. Did I mention they sent us champagne, chocolate and a pink rose on the day we arrived? It was just perfect!

A wonderful, non-corporate gem where everybody goes the extra mile, from warm cookies in the reception area, binoculars, movies, champagne, chocolates and a rose in your room upon arrival. Breathtaking view from the huge private balcony, whales spouting in the distance. You are truly suspended in the air, and the sunset is just for you. Unreal. Check out their winter... More

Warm cookies in the afternoon seems to be everybody's favorite! It is certainly is a wonderful way to start your visit ( and then on to the view, champagne, sunsets and all the other amenities the Inn offers). So glad you enjoyed your stay! More

My husband and I recently made a trip to Carmel/Monterey area for the first time. It was my 60th birthday trip. After extensive research we decided to splurge for a 2 night stay at Tickle Pink Inn.

I was just tickled pink with this well hidden little boutique hotel. It was highly recommended by my travel agent for its stunning views and excellent accommodations. When champagne and chocolates arrived just minutes after our check in, I knew we were going to be pampered! The rooms were very well appointed with high end bedding, linens and entertainment systems.... More
