After 7 hour drive to Carmel we checked in to the quaint Vagabond gem. We quickly realised that I had made an error via web and reserved the previous night! The staff and manager were very gracious and helped accommodate us in an even nicer room. Room was lovely with kitchen, fireplace and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast to order... More

We were in room 11 which had a lovely view over the courtyard which we sat in and read in the afternoon which was a lovely sun trap . The... More

Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed! Lovely location and our room was immaculate. It was really cosy with a working fireplace and the bed was super comfortable. Wonderful breakfasts delivered to your room on a tray. The staff also noted it was our honeymoon and went out of their way to make our stay memorable... More

I stayed here (in room 10) with my boyfriend in October 2014, just for a night, on our way down the Californian coast. The Inn is beautiful, the staff very helpful and the rooms are extremely well decorated with fantastic gadgets (we have since bought a Moxie for our bathroom). I have to say the bed is the comfiest we... More

This cozy little inn is so comfortable and clean I wish we could have stayed more than one night. Stay in room 10 if you can. The deep soaker tub is great to relax and the wood burning fire place creates a very romantic setting. It was still cool outside when we stayed so the heated floors in the bathroom... More

Vagabond's House is the best place to stay in Carmel. It's right in the heart of Carmel downtown, but it's quiet and a little off the path so you don't hear any of the hustle and bustle of the main drag. The staff is so friendly and they go the extra mile to make sure your stay is pleasant and... More

My husband, our poodle, and I travel to the Carmel/Monterey area every year for a bike race. We've stayed in various places in Carmel and Monterey and I believe we have found our favorite in Vagabond's House Inn. I depend on reviews on Trip Advisor when searching for new places to stay and this place had so many positive reactions... More

This was our last destination on our California coastal trip and we made the right choice. There are tons of Inns in Carmel and I searched through them all. I am so pleased we chose this one. Only a small Inn but just beautiful. A wonderful water fountain running outside so there's a constant feel of tranquility. A wood burning... More

This is a perfectly located inn from which to explore Carmel, the beach, restaurants, etc. You can park your car and walk everywhere if desired. We always enjoy Room #1 when we stay, as it is basically a studio apartment with a small kitchen. The king bed is super comfortable. The fireplace is cozy. The courtyard is a lovely spot... More

Nice boutique hotel. Loved fireplace in room. Wine and cheese hour encouraged socializing. Each room had its own personality. Coffee maker was a little dirty and tub/shower high to climb into. Desk staff helpful. Overall, would definitely go back.
