generally their service is ok but I would note that the linen in my room was not changed after a previous guest and I got impression the common practice of this inn, to change linen upon request (when I asked to do so, it has been done in a few minutes). So, be careful check your linen before go to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Green Lantern Inn for two nights in late July. Much like Carmel, the Green Lantern Inn is charming, quaint and picturesque. However, while Carmel was all of these things through and through...the Green Lantern Inn was not. I just read the previous individual's review and I'm almost positive we stayed in the same... More

Spent 2 nights at the Green Lantern a couple of weeks ago. Property is nicely landscaped with small fountains and gardens. 4 Blocks from the beach and 1 block to town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfeast was nice, make your own waffles, granola, fruit etc.. The Green Lantern is actually a bunch of summer beach cottages. The only... More

We stayed for 3 nights in November 04 at the Green Lantern and were pretty impressed. Its not the greatest b&b in the world but it served our needs perfectly. Couple of minutes walk to the beach or town in either direction. Our only criticism would be the heating system (or rather, lack of it) in our room. It consisted... More

Arrived late and left early. Stayed in the Holly. What you see in the picture is literally all there is, except for the small bathroom downstairs. You could actually hear the ocean once we settled in. Great location. If the shower trickles in Holly turn it off for a few minutes then back on. Woke up too late for breakfast... More

After reading the reviews we knew that the Green Lantern would be good, but it exceeded our expectations. Our room, albeit small compared to modern hotels, was clean, beautifuly decorated and well planned. Breakfast and afternoon tea were great. Within strolling distance of Carmel restaurants and shops, we would certainly make a return visit.

I usually break up my SF trip with a jaunt to Carmel/Big Sur for a couple days. Since I'm out of the room most of those two days, I'm not too caught up in accommodations. Stayed in Holly, which is their most inexpensive--and smallest--room, although I'm not so sure it's a heck of a lot smaller than the other 17... More

Terrible, terrible place. Don't go there (leaves more room for me...) Seriously, an ideal location as it's off the main drag and pretty quiet. You can hear the surf at night. Equally distant between the beach and "downtown". Not all rooms have fireplaces as mentioned in another revue. If you like quaint '50s-ish accomodations, this is the place. Sort of... More

I'm not sure what to say about this quaint B&B in Carmel. It is old and unique. I've been going to Carmel on and off for the last 20 years and have stayed in a lot of places. Some people, like my wife, think that small rooms, drafty windows, old plumbing, a door that is hard to open, and thin... More

Very pleasant stay for a long weekend. Room was smallish, but ideal for the weekend and clean. Staff very friendly and the breakfast good. Nice base to be able to walk down to the beach and into town for diner at night. Wonderful weekend weather helped enormously.
