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!

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

We stayed at Lobos Lodge in Carmel this week and were pleased and surprised, considering how reasonable the prices were, to have a large attractive room with a sitting area, fireplace and deck. It was clean, the staff was helpful. And they brought us a really nice (and free) continental breakfast each day: danish, orange juice, and of course coffee... More

This lodge in Carmel by The Sea is in a great location right on Ocean Ave. It's easy to walk to shops and dinner. We parked the car in the off street parking lot and let it sit for two days. Rooms were clean and our suite had a gas fireplace, great to take the chill off of the room... More

Did a lot of research to take our trip to California and drive the Pacific Coast Highway. Trying to keep within budget and reading several reviews, we decided to try Lobos Lodge for 3 nights midpoint in our trip. Carmel is great - glad we choose it over Monterey which was our second choice for this midpoint stop. Monterey much... More

We stay at a different hotel in Carmel each year. We take this time as a couple to review our family and business strategies for the coming year. During the day we take walks and spend time in the room researching vacation plans, business ideas, etc. Before making reservations we always call to confirm adequate in-room Internet access.
