Clarion Collection Carmel By The Sea (Carmel Oaks Inn) We stayed at this motel for two nights in April, 2009. We make at least two trips to Carmel each year and have been doing this for about the last 10 years. We have stayed at a variety of places. This was our first stay at this place. The motel is...

The hotel is right on the street near a 4-way stop and its walls & floors are incredibly thin so that you hear every move of your neighbors. We complained to the desk clerk about a noisy family upstairs and were told that they had apologized and that was the end of it. The neighbors were noisy until midnight but... More

From the Berteits from Brampton, Ontario, Canada My wife and I went to California for our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the inn for four days and nights mid-September and loved our stay there. The room was very comforatble and nicely decorated, the bathroom was very elegant, our room overlooked Mission Street which was quiet. The desk staff was... More

We stopped here for one night as part of a driving tour from San Francisco to LA. The young man at the reception desk was very nice and knowledgeable. The rooms were nicer than I expected based on the price. They were clean and comfortable. The location was very convenient. There were several nice restaurants a short walk from the... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a driving tour of California. We arrived later than expected as Avis car rental had done their best to spoil the holiday by making us wait 3 hours to collect the car we had prebooked. We therefore did not have any time to walk around to familiarise ourselves with the area... More

The location of this inn is wonderful. Easy access to the beach, shops and dining. The room was clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi is also available and included as an inn service. However, the breakfast basket was poorly put together. The contents of the breakfast basket included a styrofoam bowl of a mixed flake cereal, 1 packaged 7 year shelf-life danish,... More

My overall feeling about this lodgings is "it was o.k." Don't get me wrong when I saw o.k. it's not a negative in any way, just does did not blow my socks off and on the other hand did not disappoint me either. I'd give the location 5 stars. Room Cleanliness 5 stars. Breakfast two stars. Furnishing three stars. After... More

We were driving down from Southern California through Big Sur and ended up in Carmel. We did not made the reservation and while driving through Mission street we ended up at Carmel Oaks. We liked the place as we drove in and didn't know what to expect. We took a chance and it turned out to be great. The room... More

Ok, I was looking up a bunch of hotels for the past months for my girlfriend and I. And after all the research, I decided to go to the Clarion Collection. We arrived right on time when it was checkout time. It wasn't hard at all to check in, took less than 3 minutes to receive our key. The young... More

We had a pleasant stay the last weekend on September 2007. We got caught in traffic and called them about 6pm that we would be arriving 9-10 pm. We were very pleased at how they handled the late arrival - although the office was closed when we got there (which they told us up front), keys were waiting and the... More
