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.

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

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
