It was a nice, quaint place, although we only stayed one nice. I was traveling with two teenage girls and it was not easy finding a room with two beds here during peak season. It was nothing exceptional, but I would definitely consider staying here again. It was a very quiet location, was clean and had the room had a... More

Yes this is a lovely hotel it has style and character not just another plastic room that all look the same. Fantastic location right in the middle of town and just a short walk down to the beach. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful and the breakfast basket was delivered out side the door in the morning --what service. The... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Clarion Collection Carmel by the Sea. It was difficult to find as we circled around the block 3 times before going to the lobby to find it. I also stayed in the unit next to the lobby which I appreciated as I was traveling solo. The staff was most helpful and accommodating. After checking... More

We stayed at the Clarion Collection Carmel (CCC) By the Sea Dec 27-29,2013, the last weekend of the year, making our reservations at the comfortinn web site, some 30 days in advance. The signs in front of the building and at the parking lot entrance list the hotel name as Carmel Oaks. The internet Choice Privileges Member room rate for... More

Just a couple of blocks from the main intersection of Carmel. It was a good value for its location, but we had an extremely small room. We were in room 301, which is next door to the check in desk and at the corner of an intersection that seemed to get real busy around 5 am with delivery trucks. The... More

This is a great place for a short stay in Carmel. It's 2 blocks off Ocean Ave. and within walking distance of everything. Convenient, free parking. We had two rooms on the main floor, one king and one queen. Both were nicely furnished, attractively decorated, and in good condition. Beds were comfortable. Baths have been remodeled with granite counters and... More

We drove to 5th and Mission in Carmel and tried to find the Clarion Collection. Downtown Carmel does not use street addresses, so one can only find a hotel by its sign, and we did not see a Clarion sign anywhere near that corner. Finally we asked at another motel nearby, which gave us precise directions about which driveway to... More

We found this hotel through Trip Advisor and it was a really great find. It felt like staying at a friends house instead of a hotel, friendly staff, really nice room with 'character', not a cookie cutter room. Great location and overall great stay. Highly recommended!

This place is very charming with nice sized rooms, and nicely appointed too. The only drawback is that they don't seem to have air conditioning. At least room 301 didn't. Luckily the weather in Carmel is perfect so no a/c is really needed. Can get a bit noisy if your not really used to sleeping with the windows opened. Friendly... More

Small room with low ceiling. No Tub....just a shower stall. Pros: conveniently located, free parking, free wi-fi, free breakfast delivered to the door every AM. It was OK for one night, Office staff friendly and helpful.
