This is our second time staying at The Fireplace Inn. We love the cute cottages. It has a small kitchen and a em washer and Dryer. That comes in handy when you are traveling several days. It is located close to Ocean Avenue and the beach. You can walk to both.

We stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn one night to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The location is great as it is right in the downtown area with everything in walking distance. The parking lot is very small (maybe 8 spots), so we parked on the street. We did have to move our car one time due to the parking regulations.... More

I love to write great reviews of places that I enjoy, so it's with disappointment that I write of the transactional, quick and chilly reception I got from Robin when I arrived at the Inn. Within seconds she had my credit card rung through but didn't have the time to smile & ask how my drive was or something of... More

We had a wonderful stay with my wife and two daughters at Carmel Fireplace Inn. We chose the Delores Cottage - 3 bedroom cottage. Nicely appointed with a kitchen as well. Short walk to all the shopping and restaurants a few blocks away, and easy commute to the beach. Rooms were immaculate and thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we took... More

I have so many wonderful memories here over the years. The rooms are quaint and clean. The location is perfect. I think that there is a certain charm to things that do not change. I love the staff, the grounds and the feel of this place. It is truly a place I hold dear to my heart. I would walk... More

Older property, but clean and comfortable. We had the king size bed. The room had a desk and two upholstered armchairs. Breakfast was bagels and muffins, apples and oranges, juice, tea and coffee. We brought down smoked salmon, sweet onions and micro-greens to add to the toasted bagel and cream cheese. A mini-fridge kept our perishables and beverages cold. I... More

Very cute, quaint, fireplaces in every room, and free pastry and fruit breakfast are waiting for you at this inn. My husband and I have stayed here many times over the years and always found it clean, friendly, with lots of sherry or port for and afternoon chat by the fire. It's not fancy, but we like that it doesn't... More

The Fireplace Inn is very close to the center of Carmel, and a short walk to the beach. If you want luxury this is not the place, but the rooms are very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. We had no trouble parking as we rented the little cottage on Delores and had our own driveway.

In room fireplace was wonderful, and the two queen beds (separate rooms) and 1 1/2 bath layout was perfect. In room amenities were fine and everything was very tidy. Breakfast was continental, yet adequate. It was very convenient (walking distance) to shops and restaurants, the beach, and traffic/noise was minimal. Onsite parking is available but limited. The staff was wonderful... More

I booked this inn based on a Groupon or Living Social special and it was really cheap for Carmet ~$100-110 a night. And I could bring my dog. I found it to be extremely noisy (most rooms looked out into a courtyard where people gathered to talk)--both from hotel guests and neighboring appartments. My dogs bark at unfamiliar noises so...
