This small cottage enclave at the edge of downtown Carmel offers cozy rooms, all different. This is no cookie-cutter motel but a time capsule from decades past. In fact, we returned here after having visited 38 years ago. Why? Simple. After we settled into the room (done up in Delft blue and white wallpaper and knotty pine), my wife said... More

I enjoyed staying at this place. It's a bit dated but the bed was really comfortable and shower hot and powerful. Free wifi was available in our room and we had a little patio where we could sit out on. It was about a 15 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to lots of good restaurants.

We rented the cottages which are detached from the B&B. A bit old but clean and tidy. Location was great and walking distance to great restaurants and the beach and a quick drive to the main attraction on the Monterrey peninsula. I recommend it for a family of five. Staff was very helpful and kind.

We were in unit 36, king bed. Upon opening the door and walking in, it became very apparent that the picture posted for this room on their website was not recent. The room looked worn, furniture, carpeting, wallpaper all needed to be replaced. The newest piece of furniture was the TV. The wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom. Old tile... More

The big draw for booking this Inn was the fireplace. And it did add some needed ambiance to the room which is small--but clean and quiet. The bed (king size) was comfortable. Parking can be an issue (we had to park on the street at times) and the breakfast is pretty much standard for the area--coffee, juice, bagels, pastries. Staff... More

we recently booked rooms for my daughters wedding. My husband and I resented a 2 bedroom cottage that was on next block( within 1 block) . Was fully equipped with full kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We enjoyed our stay so much. We were not in a high traffic area, beds were super comfy and there was... More

We had a nice time at the Fireplace Inn. Rooms are spacious and pretty clean. Bathroom is fine and there is a big warm fireplace. Service was not that great though. Make sure you leave plenty of time if you'd like breakfast, you won't get any if you're close to closing time ;)

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
