Our family of four spent two nights at Lobos Lodge and wished we had more. We loved the setting, location, room size, decor, working fireplace... everything. It is probably the closest hotel to the beach, within just a 5 minute walk, which is great since we checked in, dumped the luggage in the room, dashed down to the beach and... More

Our stay at Lobos Lodge was perfect! Right in the heart of Carmel. You could walk everywhere. The lodge was very quaint , it did not feel like a 'hotel'. Our room was very clean and spacious. Each room has it's own fireplace which was great for the chilly evening. The staff was very hospitable, helpful and accommodating. The Lodge... More

This place has a terrific location, easy parking, large room, a comfortable bed, and, for Carmel, reasonable prices. However, it is nothing special and could really use some improvements. We reserved via the Internet. About a week out from our trip, which was for our anniversary, my wife called and specifically asked that we not have room on the main... More

We hadn't visited Carmel in a long time, but remembered that we'd stayed at Lobos Lodge several times in the past. I read the recent reviews on TripAdvisor and called for a reservation. When I spoke to the clerk, I mentioned that stairs were a problem, so she placed us in Room 34, which is right off the parking lot... More

We visit Carmel a number of times during the year, it is our dogs favorite place to take us. They love the "Free Range" beach where they can run and play "Unleashed". However on at least one trip per year to Carmel we can not take our dogs because of Business Meetings in Monterey. With that said, we always stay... More

Recently spent two nights here for our anniversary. We found this hotel several years ago and have since returned every January. A short walk to the beach and steps to the downtown area shops and restaurants. Always very clean an quiet. We like the cookies and coffee offered throughout the day in the office; the mints on the pillows at... More

This well-maintained, small hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks to the beach and to downtown Carmel. Our room (#17) was comfortable, quiet, and spacious. The hotel management is friendly and offers "extra touches" at their front desk like afternoon cookies and hot water and coffee. We enjoyed our 3 night stay here!

A group of us spend three nights at Lobos Lodge every New Year and have done so for well over 10 years. The hotel is conveniently located a short walk to Carmel's beautiful beach, lots of wonderful restaurants in the town and fun shopping. The Lodge boasts very spacious well decorated, immaculate rooms with king sized beds, sofas, fireplaces and... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights at the end of December. This was our third visit from the UK which says a lot in itself. We had been her in August 14 and we had heard tell of how pretty Carmel was at Christmas- this planted a seed in our mind that wouldn't go away! It is... More

This hotel has an excellent, walkable location in downtown Carmel. The room we occupied, although a bit dated, was quite large, comfortable and cheerful with a view of the ocean in the distance (but over a rather high balcony wall). Despite the central location, it is relatively quiet at night and being a light sleeper, I was happy about that.... More
