We found the Tickle Pink via the Trip Advisor site and given the rating booked a fireplace suite for 3 nights. This was our first trip to California so we wanted something special. I am glad to say that it was and more. We had just come down from SF along the coast and located the TP. Our check-in process... More

My partner and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn on August 28, 2007. I will say that the location of the hotel is beautiful (if there's not fog from the ocean to your balcony). However, the property is no better than your average motel. It is tired and old. I guess some people are so overwhelmed with the area... More

My husband and I just returned from three nights in Room 15 at the Tickle Pink Inn and it was so romantic! We are in our 50's and have never been to the Carmel area before. Yes, it used to be a Motor Inn, but they have done a fabulous job making the rooms beautiful and comfortable and creating a... More

My husband and I stayed at Tickle Pink Inn on August 25-27, 2007. We then spent the next two nights at Ventana Inn in Big Sur (see separate post). At Tickle Pink, we were in room 24, which is designated as a partial view with shared patio. The rate was $269 for Saturday and $249 for Sunday with AAA card.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn for only one night to celebrate our 20th anniversary on our way to Healdburg & Napa in July of this year. We will definitely return! We were greeted with a bottle of champage with a rose and chocolates and sat outside on our private terrace to enjoy the beautiful view... More

The Tickle Pink Inn was the nicest hotel my boyfriend and I have ever stayed in! The view is beautiful, the service is outstanding, and the rooms are romantic! We drove from Seattle down to San Diego and were away from home for 18 days. This was our best night on the trip! Get a massage in the room at... More

We stayed at the tickle pink inn last week on August 13-14, 2207. Overall it was a very disappointing stay. The staff was condescending and bordered on being rude. The strong point about this hotel is the view. The views are spectacular and the location is very good. Otherwise it is basically a motel. Our room was very small and... More

Our stay at Tickle Pink Inn was a complete surprise to me as was our engagement just an hour before. The inn could not have been a more perfect compliment to the romantic atmosphere of the Julia Pfeifer Burns falls just 30 minutes away. When we arrived at Tickle Pink, the sun was setting on the Pacific and champagne, cheese,... More

I am obsessed with this website and such a hotel snob so I really did my research about this property! We didn't want to stay in a B&B Downtown (which are nice but I wanted ocean view). We couldn't have been more pleased with this place. Very small, 38 rooms, all of which are great. They have all been redone... More

This was the final stop of our great California adventure and as we were staying 5 nights, wanted somewhere a little special. Special this is.
