Was very happy to find a hotel with EV charging within a week's notice. They also reserve a space for EVs in their small parking lot for the duration of the stay. That was very convenient. The location is also top notch. Can walk to everything in the village. As for the hotel itself, it's really showing its age. Peeling... More

Decided to do a 1 night stay in Carmel by the Sea last minute. Walked into the lobby at 6:00 pm on a Sunday night and there was a 2 queen suite available and we were given an excellent "walk-in" rate. Mon-thru Fri continental complimentary breakfast serve in the upscale Italian restaurant. We had an excellent dinner at the restaurant... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Pine Inn. It was our 5th visit and I took the family this time. The breakfast buffet (complimentary during week days) was fantastic and the room off of the patio is very comfortable. You have good parking access and can leave the car and enjoy the town. You are in the middle of... More

Quaint hotel, centrally located in Carmel, with FREE parking, excellent buffet breakfast, cool ocean breezes, and reeking with class. At night, enjoy great Italian food, just off the lobby, at Il Fornaio's. Stay once and you will return.

Very convenient location on Ocean Drive. Few minutes walk down to the beach. Hotel was very lovely with a European decor. I was there alone had a single room was perfect for me, small in size compared to American chain hotels I found it charming like older hotels in Europe.

Planned a quick, last minute trip to Carmel for spring break and The Pine Inn was still a deal at $159/night. I've stayed at this inn about 4 times now. I have to say, its all in the room. I booked a queen room and was "upgraded" at check in(very charming gentleman evening manager whose name escapes me) to a... More

The pictures on TripAdvisor provide one a good understanding of the property. My wife and two boys (4 & 8) like the historical hotels. This one was the first in Carmel and the most of the furnishings seem the be original. Now, our fear was that the beds and pillows would also be turn of the century. Before the suitcases... More

Pine Inn is a lovely turn of the century hotel with all its charms. We had an ocean view room and could hear the ocean in the evening. It is very easy to walk around the town from the hotel which has makes things more pleasant as parking in town can be challenging. The breakfasts were fantastic, the on site... More

We had a beautiful view of the ocean. The lobby is so different in red. The rooms r dated but Carmel is so nice it did not matter. The breakfast was a 10! The man at the desk was hysterical so that made it fun.
