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...

It saddens me to write this review. I had such high hopes for this inn. Unfortunately the beds were not firm at all, in fact the mattress dipped in the middle the second we got in. The walls are paper thin. Meaning you can hear people showering, going the bathroom, sneezing, children crying (I think you get the picture). When... More

Our younger son and his family live in nearby Pacific Grove, and we love Carmel, so when we visit, it is fun to stay in Carmel. We wound up at the Fireplace on a Living Social voucher and for what we paid, we didn't expect much. The Fireplace Inn exceeded our expectations especially after we read some of the snarky... More

Thought the pictures online looked charming and quaint, but the property turned out to be run down ... and this was one of the pricier cottage-style suites. My first impression was a shabby exterior, with a white picket fence that was dirty with top rails that have been rotting for many years, and part of the wooden handrail was an... More
