The room was adequate size and the grounds were very nice. Everything was well maintained. There is some parking inside the courtyard at the Inn. No parking problems at all. The included breakfast included hard boiled eggs, bagels, cream cheese and jelly, toast, muffins. Oatmeal was also a choice. Coffee was good

We've stayed at The Normandy Inn on many occasions, so I won't repeat what I've already said. If you are looking for a inn that feels like Carmel - this is it! Always friendly, great location, they won't disappoint!

Normandy Inn is in a great location. Walk to beach, restaurants, shops and tasting rooms. I booked last minute on orbitz and got a good rate. I think for the money it was fine. When we entered our room there was a smell that didn't go away. :( but for 1 night it was okay. The pillows are not up... More

We stayed at the Normandy Inn recently and absolutely loved it starting with its charming architecture. The staff was helpful and our room was very nice. We had a room with a fireplace which we liked. The bed was very comfortable. We liked the touch of sherry being served in the lobby in the afternoon and the continental breakfast. The... More

Normandy Inn is a charming little inn, centrally located in between the Carmel coastline (5 minute walk) and the restaurants and shops that line Ocean avenue. The place has a homey look and feel - colorful flowers throughout the property contribute to that atmosphere. The reception staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are modest and comfortable. A good continental... More

Nice room, friendly staff, very convenient location which allows for walking to most everything from shopping to beach. Some road noise, especially on Saturday night. Heater noise would wake the dead! We've heard quieter cement mixers.

I had a pretty fireplace room, with a queen size bed on the ground floor. 1. Next to exterior staircase. Very noisy with people going up and down. 2. No privacy. People using staircase can see inside room, unless shutters closed. 3. I can hear all my neighbors talk. Upstairs floors creek, so we heard people getting up at 6:30... More

We enjoy staying in Carmel by the Sea for 2-3 days and just walking for shopping, eating and scenery. This is a great location for that type of stay. The check-in experience was handled by Spencer and the parking is limited. If you get there before 1-2 pm you may be able to park on the property. Otherwise you will... More

Very nice with a Europe feeling. Breakfast was provided in a cottage style dining area. However the bathrooms were not heated and in December were very cold. A short walk down the hill to the beach, and just steps away from the center of the village. We'll go again, but when it is warmer.

When we are in Carmel there is no other place we would like to stay. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. It Is Carmel !!! The continental breakfast is great and in a lovely setting. We stay in a vanity room which is very large, quiet, and meets all of our needs.
