Best hotel in Carmel for location , some staff are very pleasant indeed though the management at times thinks or gives the impression that one is lucky to pay to stay there ! I would not suggest another hotel in Carmel itself is better but it is the fact that the management has overwhelming self confidence and far better knowledge... More

I just spent two nights at the best hotel in Carmel celebrating my 50th birthday. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful and even had a bottle of wine waiting for me in my luxurious room (along with an espresso machine). The complementary breakfast was bigger than I could even finish. The location is central and walked everywhere...... More

Our experience was enjoyable. The service level was excellent from all the staff. The location is fabulous. Breakfast, which can be enjoyed in the restaurant or in the courtyard, was very good. Our only complaints would be the cost (hotel and restaurant) and the wireless internet which seemed very old and would not allow access to my work VPN.

L'Auberge is located just a short walk to town and restaurants, plus only 5 blocks down to the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room comfortable, but we had a loud pipe in our bathroom that was a little annoying. Breakfast came with the room which was very nice, and there was always milk and fresh cookies... More

This place was quaint and charming! A bit pricey but we'll worth it. It started when I pulled in front in my car. Someone immediately approached, welcomed me and took my keys. I was escorted inside and the check in completed. I was escorted to my room. This property is a vintage building. I was on the second floor and... More

Firstly, Carmel by-the-sea is absolutely charming! What a pretty town. We spent one night in town on our way down the coast. We had booked l'Auberge prior to leaving Australia and we were thrilled with it. The staff are friendly and helpful. Remember this is a little country town, not a slick metropolis and the service reflects this. We were... More

This is an amazing French-style inn in the heart of Carmel. The place obviously caters toward the higher-end tastes, with a fancy small restaurant and very personalized service. The latter is definitely the highlight of any stay, and is unlike anything I've seen elsewhere. As far as the rooms themselves go, they're nice but you can definitely find better- especially... More

We pulled up to the front door and from that point on everything was taken care of from taking our bags directly to our room, intimate check in with wonderful homemade apple cider, parking our car, advice on shopping and dining and more. The walk through the courtyard reminded us of stays in France in small Chateaus. While our room... More

We booked this hotel because many other options in town were already booked due to the holiday weekend. It was more expensive than we usually go for, but it was worth it! The location was ideal for walking to the local shops and down the the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. In fact, when we left one... More

We arrived Christmas Eve with no reservations at all. We had the option of just spending the day in Carmel or staying up to five nights. L'Auberge was the first hotel we wandered into. We asked if they had availability. They did. We asked to see a couple of rooms. They showed us two, happily so. The first room they... More

Built in 1929, the European-style luxury hotel is located just four blocks from famous Carmel Beach and an easy stroll to the village's numerous art galleries, shops and restaurants.
