Inn is located about 200m from the main street through Carmel by the Sea. Room enormous with very tasetful decor. Very clean and very nice bathroom. Bed one of the comfiest I have slept... More

Inn is in a good location and easy walking distance to Carmel and beach the main stretch of shops and restaurants. Free WiFi was available in the room. Parking was also available for free. Staff were nice and informative. Breakfast selection is limited but is delivered to your room each morning.

Honestly THE best, most comfiest bed I have ever slept in! Such a lovely place - friendly staff, nice rooms, luxury toiletries, the fresh cookies and muffins were delicious, fresh breakfast delivered to your door every morning. Great location too - walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. If you are looking for sun, travel 20 minutes in-land to... More

Our stay was simply excellent! This inn is located really close to the main town and it has plenty of free parking. The room was really clean with a modern bathroom, comfortable beds and free wi-fi. The reception staff (especially Nick) are friendly and gave us some useful tips re dining in town etc. Breakfast is ordered in advance and... More

We stopped off in Carmel for one night, and this was a great find. It wasn't too dear, the room and bed was fantastic, and a lovely surprise breakfast in the morning. Also got a great tip for a place to eat across the road from one of the staff. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to... More

We stayed for one night in a Deluxe Guest room which was ideal for a family of four. Very friendly check-in and a great location, on site parking was nice and easy. The outdoor fire place was perfect for a nightcap (or two!) & the continental breakfast delivered to the door was a nice touch.

When the mercury hits 99 on the drive in from SoCal you know you are going need some strong aircon for the night ahead. Unfortunately there wasn't but that was the only thing that let this place down. Rooms are cute, location is great, parking on site, friendly really quick and efficient check in. Loads of bars and restaurants within... More

This is a lovely little place, perfect for a few nights in Carmel recently. Very close to the main town so ideal for us strolling home after dinner and drinks out. The room was spotlessly clean, nice bathroom, super comfy beds and good powerful shower. The reception staff are friendly, the breakfast was left in a cool bag on our... More

Very comfortable and large rooms. Perfect location - only two blocks from the main business area of Carmel By The Sea. Walking distance to all shops and the beach. The room, while dated, was more than comfortable and very large and included a kitchenette. Fabulous restaurants and shops all extremely close by. An excellent choice.

This hotel had a great location and was very cute in a lovely town. I liked how they did breakfast by ordering the night before and having it delivered to your room. The one complaint on this is that if your in the smaller rooms in the front building there is no small breakfast table or anywhere you can easily... More
