While driving along the West Coast we needed to find a place to spend the night before heading to San Francisco where we would spend the rest of our vacation. So we booked the Carmel Resort Inn last minute on the same day we were planning to spend the night their! The cottage we stayed in was getting a bit... More

We really enjoyed our over night stay. The cottages are very cute. Beds were comfortable, and clean. The fireplace insert made for a cozy experience. Definitely a place we would revisit. The staff was accomodating and friendly. If only the address was more identifiable. It was not easy to find.

This property takes us back to an earlier age in California resorts. The ambiance and character of the place is wonderful. Lovely walks in the immediate neighborhood. Could use some pruning and attention to landscape, as well as attention to some of the units, but in relation to the price, we loved our stay. A short drive or a healthy... More

The initial contact could only be called surly, the room shabby with no wifi access and no phone in the room. There was no refrigerator as advertised and no microwave. Breakfast wa s left on the doorstep and it would have been great if you liked what was in the basket. There was no choice.

It was sooo busy in the lovely little town and so dark as Carmel has no street lamps, we opted to order in and again received great service at the front... More

In this "inn" you get a well-furnished and comfortable individual cottage, much bigger that most hotel rooms. I was in no. 21, near the back of the property, private and quiet with a small porch with table and chairs. The unit had a big bedroom/ sitting room and a substantial kitchen, well set up for a long stay. A tremendous... More

The interior of unit were wearing out and old. 3. The Internet in the rooms sucks. There's no connection at all even though you thought it's already... More

I stayed at the Carmel Resort Inn a few years ago and really enjoyed my stay at the time. The room was really spacious with a microwave and fridge and while it wasn't top of the range, it was very good value for money. I booked both rooms through the same hotel reservations site and was under the impression that... More
