Three days of total relaxation in Carmel are not hard to take. And they were made even more pleasant at the Normandy Inn. The Inn is convenient to everything, which in this case is stores, restaurants, and the beach. The public rooms are charming, a mix of antique and modern. The small pool is surrounded by flowers. Breakfast (free) offers... More

This hotel had apparently hosted Bing Crosby and Dean Martin back in the 1930s. The facilities do not appear to have been updated since then. It sounded like Fred Astaire was tap dancing above my head as the walls and ceiling are paper thin. Paper plates is what the breakfast is served on in the breakfast area which seats many... More

This hotel has a charming look, and is clearly dated. However, the rooms were clean - and you can't beat the location. It is only a five-minute walk to the beach. I stayed in the upper level, so it was very quiet. I had a really nice sleep here. If you have someone who has limited mobility, you should request... More

Not fancy, but comfortable and charming. Built in the 1920s the rooms are not large but well maintained and clean. Perfect location makes all of Carmel walkable. If you want the Ritz this isn't it, but if you want quiet charm, friendly staff, and reasonable rates this is it. Beware, if you can't handle stairs, this is not the place.... More

My husband & I stayed here for two nights, along our PCH trip. We chose this place based on the reviews of Carmel vs Monterey. What a mistake! Our room was small, outdated, and had a terrible odor. I had to request a mini fridge, because we didn't have one in our room. Which they gladly delivered the next day.... More

This was our first time to stay here, having been to Carmel 10 -15 times. We chose this inn due to being centrally located between the shopping area and the beach. That was the best part of the hotel. The towels were nice, as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The room was small but adequate. Parking was very... More

Located at one end of the main road in town and about 2-3 blocks from the beach, the Normandy was a great find! Although dogs are not allowed in this dog friendly town, it is only because of the very senior resident cat. We opted for a room with a fireplace, which was a nice way to end the evening,... More
