We stayed here for three nights. We were in Room 11 which although very spacious was a little dark and didn't get much sunshine. The bathroom window looked into a brick wall! One of the receptionists was very friendly and particularly helpful - the other one was OK! Tea, coffee and flavoured water with cookies in the reception area was... More

Stayed here for two nights on our way down the PCH. Ideally located in the heart of Carmel with a wealth of restaurants and bars right on the doorstep. The room was clean, spacious and well equipped. Breakfast delivery each morning was a nice touch and all staff were very friendly. There is use of the pool at their sister... More

Carmel is a quaint, charming area and The Candle Light Inn suited our needs perfectly. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the room was spacious and very clean. We loved having our breakfast waiting for us in a cooler outside our door in the morning, which allowed us to enjoy it together when we were ready. The location... More

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
