I spent one night on our road trip from LA to San Francisco. Really nice place in a lively street, this is an interesting point considering that Carmel is a very tiny town with no many things to do. The worst: not enough towells (only one and we were two!!). The best: the breakfast yummy!!

We discovered Carmel Fireplace Inn by researching a Living Social ad. We were too late to get the advertised deal, but my husband called directly, and was luckily given a great rate on one of their smaller rooms. We stayed there for two nights, thoroughly enjoying every moment of our stay. The hotel, made up of several individual cottages, was... More

A random pick to break the drive from LA to San Fran and we were very lucky here. Very twee place that matched the town. Nice room with comfy bed. Breakfast good bagel choice, cinnamon and raisin was my favourite and again welcoming breakfast area looking out on the plants and flower that are everywhere. Final bonus is off street... More

This is a total surprise to us how lovely and well kept gem in Carmel By The Sea. The staff is so warm and thoughtful. The garden has fully blossom flowers and water fountain. We stay in the smallest room they have but still very comfortable. The hotel is actually B & B and they offer very pleasant breakfast area... More

We stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn for one night on our travel down the coast from San Fransisco to Santa Monica. Robin greeted us in a very welcoming manner and was happy to answer all our questions regarding all things Carmel. She is a bubbly, happy personality and we warmed to her immediately. We had no problem parking the... More

We stayed here on our PCH trip up from LA to SF and our first experience was when we arrived early (12 noon) . We knew we were early and just wanted to park the car and take a stroll around Carmel before checking in. The Receptionist , Mexican or Phillipino, greeted us with "you too early you come back...

We got a living social deal here for about $90 & that's about all it's worth. The rooms are mostly small & dated with limited parking. The breakfast was a joke.... Costco muffins, this in a town known for it's bakeries. You're better off walking to town. This really isn't what I'd consider a B&B. It's OK if you are... More

I was visiting Carmel with my daughter and we stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn. I had obtained a voucher from Living Social for our stay and I had called them ahead of time knowing that we were late arriving. They had left instructions for us and we had no problems finding our cottage, a block away from the office.... More

I spent one night in room 29. The room was small and a little noisy, but charming, clean and well equiped. Staff was welcoming, breakfast and wifi included, and the hotel is well located... All this for 110$ all included, it's a bargain.

Pluses: - Convenient location - Free parking and wifi - Everything in the room did work Negatives: - Noisy plumbing (get to hear other people's showers, etc) - Breakfast: Costco bagels and muffins, coffee with half & half creamer (no milk available)- orange juice. No cereal, no yogurt- and no room. One toaster so you have to wait if you... More
