Centrally located. You can walk all over town and to the beach from the hotel. Service was beyond expectations and everyone was so friendly. The courtyard is a great place to relax after a long day or even start the day with coffee and the paper. Wonderful Old World charm. Dinner was the best we've had this year.

When you have a busy schedule like my husband & me - work, kids, dogs, etc - finding time to for get-away weekend to recharge is almost a herculean task. And when we did finally carve out the time - needless to say, expectations were high! The L'Auberge meet all our expectations & did so with a kind, quiet, courteous,... More

We recently spent 5 nights here and it was an absolute delight. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the General Manager we knew it was going to be special. The staff could not have been more courteous, friendly, helpful or efficient. The restaurant was outstanding and certainly worthy of a Michelin star. The courtyard was charming and... More

Smack dab in the village of Carmel this inn is small but charming. The best part of our experience was dining in their restaurant for dinner. Chef formerly trained at French Laundry, the beef cheeks were memorable as was our wine. Heated bathroom floors were also a nice touch.

This is a small hotel with all the amenities of a larger venue. The well appointed rooms open onto a quite inner courtyard, perfect for relaxing in the late afternoon. Its location is ideal for exploring Carmel and the areas nearby. All of he staff are exceedingly helpful and professional. One highlight is the restaurant and its tasting menu, which... More

Absolute luxury and class.. Worth every penny...a testament to the expression"you get what you pay for."..I chose a queen room and was afraid that it might be small...not at all..We will return and as I've told everyone if you stay in Carmel it's L'Auberge Carmel. Thanks for a great stay.

Tight quarters and strange parking arrangements, but staff is accommodating, service-oriented, we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner at Aubergine--better than The Restaurant at The Meadowood!

I had the pleasure of spending one night at L'Auberge Carmel and only wish I had many more nights. It was the perfect base to explore Carmel on foot.

From the moment we arrived the staff went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. The breakfast was wonderful and the nightly turn down service with special treats was perfect. Very special experience. Well worth every penny.

We felt welcome from the moment we drove up to the front of the hotel. The doorman/bell, front office agent (Liz), restaurant staff were all very eager to help. They were very accommodating towards our two little kids as well. Great location in down town near the beach. Love the bathroom size.
