I have stayed at the Green Lantern off and on over the last 35 years. I have never been disappointed and that's why I continue to go back. The staff is friendly and accommodating. the rooms are delightful and cozy. The inn is so conveniently located to the beach, town, restaurants. You need never drive during your stay.

Our absolute favourite was the Green Lantern Inn in Carmel-by-the-sea- As soon as we drove up we loved the look of the place, very quaint! on arrival we were met by the friendly reception staff who checked us in and asked what we would...

I'm sure the first time I stayed at the Green Lantern was over 50 years ago. In the last 35 years I've stayed there perhaps 8 times when our family home in Carmel was full. I have recommended the Green Lantern to friends countless times - too many times to count. A few weeks ago my wife and I had... More

I do a lot of research before I decide to stay somewhere, and after looking into this charming B&B and seeing positive reviews, I was excited to getaway for the weekend with my bf. However, our trip quickly turned south as soon as we checked into our room. I reserved the more spacious Walnut room with a king size bed... More

We have been coming to the Green Lantern for over 30 years -- it is by far the best value in the middle of Carmel! And it is charming, with great views and the sound of waves crashing on the beach. They are in the process of updating several things, which is a good thing and much needed. There are... More

Great location,walking distance to town,charming. Overpriced for the condition of the rooms.It would'nt take much to spruce and upgrade the place.We were in the Laurel which was considerably larger than Cedar however it was on the 2nd flr.

Honestly, this little B & B was comfortable enough because we weren't there much. We were in Carmel for a wedding and only stayed there because our daughter & her friends were staying there too. That made it tolerable but I could swear the carpet was from the 1920's. The breakfast was the best part of staying there but offered... More

Our room for the night was 'Knotty Pine' , very comfortable bed & pillows. It was a bit chilly during the night (November visit) but heaters in the room to warm it up! The location was very good, not far to the lovely beach and a short walk to the main Street with the shops etc. Breakfast was good, lots... More
