I recently made a reservation to stay at this hotel and had to cancel due to a change in plans. I called the hotel approximately one month before my arrival date and cancelled the reservation. The hotel clerk gave me a cancellation number which I wrote down. I later received an email reminding me of my reservation. When I called... More

Carmelhotel, manager at Clarion Collection Carmel By The Sea, responded to this review

As you know, when guests use a credit card to make a reservation, we agree not to re-sell the room pending their anticipated arrival. In this case, the guaranteed room was held throughout the night. And, while our customer relations file confirms your guaranteed room reservation, our customer relations team hasn't been able to find a cancellation number. The number... More

Very nice place. It's a little pricey for what you get but I quickly realized everything in Carmel is pricey. Carmel is great though so bring your credit card, have fun, and think about the bills later. The hotel is very cute, off the beaten path of downtown but still close enough to walk to everything but the beach. They... More

We stayed here in June and found the hotel very charming. Everything in the hotel is so clean. The hotel and rooms are very pretty. There are so many little touches to the property and room that makes you happy you are staying there. The location can't be beat as it is right in the middle of Carmel city. Everything... More

The Clarion has a great location--walking to distance to everything we wanted to visit in Carmel. At $154 a night, the Clarion was in line with other hotels we had stayed in far less picturesque locations--like Fresno. Little things make a big difference like a fresh flower in the room and a decorated basket at the door containing breakfast at... More

Wonderful suite. The suites are just one room that are a lot larger than the standard sized room. They are L-shaped. The beds are extremely comfy. The bathrooms are granite and only are equipped with a shower. They also bring mini baskets to the room which is a lovely touch (OJ, cinabons, cereal, milk). Carmel is lovely but very boring... More

I was in town for the Big Sur Marathon and decided to stay here because of the proximity to the charming little town of Carmel. The pros of this motel are its location, the uber comfortable bed, and the updated granite bathrooms. The cons are paper-thin walls. I could hear the people in the room next to me having a... More

The Carmel Oaks (Clarion) turned out to be a nice surprise. It's within a couple of blocks of many great restaurants, galleries and shops. The rooms are tastefully decorated with wooden shutters that let in as much light as you like. The bathrooms are nice and the staff is very helpful. We were particularly impressed by Ray, who allowed us... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent the weekend at this "Inn" and we ended up being very disappointed. We had done a lot of online research before we booked our weekend. The pictures on the Carmel Oaks Inn website made this place look much bigger and nicer than it actually is. I can honestly say i've stayed in cheap motels... More

We took two rooms (us and the inlaws) in May. They gave a good discount ($99 per room)--upon arrival, I saw Vacancy signs in many of the hotels, so I guess that explained the discount. But given the prices in Carmel, it would have been a very good deal at a higher price too. It's basically a family-run motel, built... More
