If you can't find ANY other places to sleep; in the woods, at a sidewalk or in a container, book a room at Carmel Resort Inn. It's going to be slightly better. They have not put a single dollar into maintaining the place. It could actually be a nice place, but it's a dump. Litterarely. There was a junkyard right... More

this resort has quaint little cottages which are adequate and comfortable. Even the individual cottage names are cute. Linen towels toilets are clean. The cottage has a coffee/tea maker, fridge and a microwave.. So it's a plus while travelling with small children and toddlers who need warm milk at night. The breakfast basket has cold breakfast and you miss some... More

We spent there just one night during our weekend trip to Carmel. It was the only hotel still available due to the late booking. There was a nice gas heater imitating the fire place. We liked also breakfast served into the room. Beside that the bathroom was old and should be refurbished, we could hear some noise from the street... More

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.

Booked this last minute online and was pleasantly surprised! Really friendly and helpful front desk! check in was smooth and lots of great advice on what was in Carmel. 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
