This was my second stay in the last 8 months. I like the location, right on Ocean Ave. great for walking to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially Jim the bellman, who helped with luggage and showed us the room. Room was again very clean. The decor of the hotel is ready for an... More

My wife and I took a surprise trip to beautiful Carmel and stayed the night at the Pine Inn. We're both 28, not much for extreme sports, and love to read. The Pine Inn's breakfast on site, location in the middle of shopping and the beach, and amazing lobby with a fireplace was exactly what we were looking for. The... More

I booked this based on tripadvisor reviews. This hotel has a special style from the 1940's that is cute. The two flights of stairs to a small room were less than appealing. The front desk staff on check-in on Friday night was slow and seemed a little annoyed at being bothered with the check-in. The check-out staff was very friendly... More

A great old slice of Carmel. Vito was wonderful, getting us a King room with an ocean view just as the sun was going down. Large room and very comfortable, and he gave us a discounted rate (we didn't have reservations). He also suggested Dametra's restaurant which was outstanding (separate review). The bed was very comfortable, the windows opened so... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful time in Carmel and the Inn was the perfect place to reunion with college friends. We had a gorgeous room, much bigger and more elegant than expected. It was also extremely convenient but, at the same time, in a very peaceful part of the town. We also found the front desk very attentive... More

The location is really great. Its 4 blocks down the street to the a great Carmel beach. Located on Carmels main street surrounded by Art Galleries and Restaurants. The hotel is historic which adds a lot of charm, and Il Fornaio is located on the first floor. I was not impressed with the front desk staff. One of our rooms... More

Very cozy and charming inn, friendly staff and rich history. However, the stairs up to the room were a bit cumbersome (especially with luggage). Not a bad experience, but not an especially memorable one either.

We enjoyed this place very much. The staff is excellent, and will be helpful in locating places to eat. The neat thing about the Pine Inn is its history. It was rolled into place on pine logs not long after Carmel was established as an coastal Bohemian (arts and music) kind of place. The adjoining restaurant is excellent if you... More

My wife and I stayed here on a cold rainy day in January. Locals (I suppose) and hearty tourists. Very enjoyable, B&B style.
