L’Auberge Carmel is amazing! We spent a night there on our honeymoon and it was fantastic. The Inn is so beautiful, especially the courtyard. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the service is great. We went out to dinner and came back to milk and cookies in our room with the next day’s forecast. Big Bonus is that breakfast... More

We were greeted by super friendly staff and shown to our small but very cosy room. There is no pool as the beach is close by. We loved staying at this cute little hotel, breakfast was outside on the terrace - the staff were very helpful with helping us plan out time spent there. We enjoyed it and would totally... More

Based on service and good care by all the staff, this is a 6 star place. And the patio for lounging and reading is ideal. BUT. Our room 16 was comfortable but awkward, the TV off to the side and no place flat to put things coming back to the room. The spa massage from outside in the room was... More

Very personable staff and very friendly! Classy hotel with a relaxing atmosphere. Though I haven't eaten at their restaurant I here its equivalent to the French Laundry in Napa. Great location and convenience for downtown Carmel restaurants and shops. The only negative thing I have is that the rooms are dusty. Attention to detail is a must for a hotel... More

We had booked a Deluxe King room for 1 night. It was very well appointed and overlooked a beautiful courtyard. However, it was on the ground floor and the courtyard was quite small in size, meaning that we needed to close the curtains whenever we needed any privacy. The room generally felt quite luxurious. We were celebrating our anniversary and... More

As other reviews say, a lot like France, which given we holiday there a lot could have been a bit bland, however the restaurant changed the pairing wines to local ones and we were happy. Lovely place with nice little touches like cookies at bedtime.

A very relaxing hotel, with excellent service standards. Even better is the restaurant - Auberge, the tasting menu is superb....a Michelin star must be on the way. Breakfast could be better, a confusing inclusive menu means that you have to pat extras for a side of bacon, not good for a hotel of this quality

We had the pleasure to stay in this European elegant hotel. The moment we walked in the manager went out of his way to accommodate our needs. The staff treated us with white glove treatment. The rooms are so charming and the out door patio made me feel as if I was in Bayeux, France. The most charming surprise awaited... More

We stayed one night and were pleased with the room. The staff was extremely accommodating and could not do enough to make the short stay enjoyable. We had breakfast, which was included with the room. The hotel is located in close proximity to the ocean and all the shopping.

They think they're classy, but they're not. I had a most unpleasant experience with the hotel. When I checked in, I was told that the breakfast in Aubergine was included, but apparently that is only for the code-named "signature breakfast" menu. My bill included a $49 breakfast charge. I was surprised and mentioned that I had been told breakfast was... More
