This place may appear charming but beware there is no air conditioning, only one window will open in the room and around 2-3 pm the room is about 90 degrees. They mention a fan but we never received it. The front desk staff are rude and when we asked about "complimentary" parking, we were told there are about 8 spots... More

Normandy Inn has a unique ambiance, beautiful surroundings and excellent helpful staff. We attended by chance and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We were assisted great fully throughout by Candy on reception who could not be more helpful and therefore we give the highest praise. The accommodation was comfortable and sufficient and cute. Afternoon sherry was particularly pleasant and welcoming... More

The Normandy Inn is a picture perfect place to stay in Carmel - with good pricing, very clean and cute rooms, and good, friendly staff and management (Janice) to boot! I would return in a heartbeat! We loved our room, and enjoyed our stay!

I hate to start out with a negative, but truly this was such a last minute stay for us, we just sort of grabbed this room because we were just happy they had a vacancy. The flowers outside are GORGEOUS-- many tourists stopped to take pictures in front of the hotel. But once inside to inquire about vacancies, I was... More

We loved this place! Pictures didn't do it justice at all. Hotel room was cosy if a little nosy from the upstairs guests, despite this it was a perfect little haven. Bathroom was large well laid out. Ok, so the only little issue was the parking as everyone says, but despite this we had no problems parking either nights, and... More

Room was nice. Good wifi and breakfast excellent. As noted by many getting a car park is difficult. We were lucky and flunked one pretty much straight away. Centrally located and pleasant enough room. Everything is within walking distance.

This is a nice quaint little inn with courteous staff, clean rooms and comfy beds. The location on the main street is perfect and the price is around the average for what you will pay in the area. The only issue I had was that there is not enough parking for the number of rooms they have, so you may... More

We *loved* this place! It was close and convenient to all of the downtown restaurants and shops, but felt like a romantic hideaway. We had a Premium Fireplace Room which was ideal for couples. King size bed and beautiful rounded corner fireplace with TV, shower/toilet bathroom and then a separate vanity area for getting ready. Plentiful storage ... and also... More

Our room was very small and outdated. Bathroom looked like it was last decorated in sixties, but it was clean. Bed was very uncomfortable, I felt like we slept on piece of marble. Bad sound insulation; since our room was on the 1st floor we thought that family of elephants stayed above us. Also, our room was on street corner... More

I was a little concerned when I made my reservations a couple of months ahead of time. And the closer the trip got, the more worried I would get. My wife kept saying, "it's okay, we are not buying the place, we are just staying there". She was right, it was a waste of time to worry....this little hotel on... More
