My family has stayed at the Nomandy Inn for years and we just love it. The 100 series rooms are the best with beamed ceilings and fireplaces in some. The breakfast is plentiful and the inn is always clean and the staff always friendly. Since it is at the bottom of the main street in Carmel, you are able to... More

Here's your choice - a great place to stay with nice personnel and comfortable rooms right on Ocean Ave. where either everything is located or you can easily walk to it. We really enjoyed our four-night stay and will definitely return. Everyone was accommodating, courteous, helpful, and it's a very cute throw-back-in-time establishment.

We just returned from a night at the Normandy Inn. The location is fabulous and the hotel is quaint. Others have called it outdated, but I don't believe that is how I would describe it. The room is very adequate with all the expected ammenities, though no air coniditioning, but doubt if it is needed too often as the hotel... More

Pros: Location. Cons: Extremely slow (basically unuseable) wifi. Room is very dated. Very little noise insulation - you can hear people in the other rooms and on the street. Black material comes out of the tap - not sure what it is! Dirty wine glasses provided. Subpar breakfast. Help desk people were not helpful at all. Really no reason to... More

We stayed at the Normandy Inn on July 23 for one night. Contrary to the positive reviews I just read, I experienced several problems. The most important was that the mattress was so firm that I had difficulty sleeping and woke up with a back ache the next morning. Moreover, there was no air conditioning, the toilet seat wouldn't stay... More

15 years ago, we stayed at this inn and decided to stay here again because the cost was what we wanted to pay. Nothing has changed since our first stay but whoever owns this inn will have to think about refurbishing the rooms soon as it is showing its age. It is not a bad place as it is near... More

The primary destination of our trip was San Francisco but it was a long trip and we ventured here and there on various overnighters, including Carmel. It was just good luck that we picked the Normandy Inn. It was an old fashion "motel" complete with kitchenette. While it still had that old charm, everything was neat and clean and we... More

Extended layout linked by charming courtyards filled with flowers and sunshine. Upmarket rooms and Inn at reasonable prices gives great value. Rooms reasonable size, tastefully furnished and clean. Self service breakfast a little limiting and by all other standards set at this hotel, it was disappointing.

We just happened upon the Normandy Inn as we passed through Carmel 2 weeks ago. One room left, we took it & ended up staying an additional night as well. It's quite reasonable for where it is situated, right in the heart of the 'bubble" that is Carmel. A couple of blocks from the beach & all the world class... More
