A little jewel. So quaint and inviting. Room was clean, elegant & cosy with a real log fire. Good coffee available in room & lobby. Continental breakfast very good. Good location within the town centre. Would love to visit again!

What's not to love? This place is a little garden paradise amidst all the activity on Ocean Avenue. Such beautiful flowers and vibrant orchids decorate the hallways and common areas. The lobby is a nice place to relax with a fireplace and reading area. The room is spacious and immaculate. The carpet looked brand new and the bed was very... More

The Normandy Inn is a wonderful bargain, located right on Ocean Avenue in the heart of Carmel, CA. Great price of $125 for a queen room. Charming decor, lovely plantation shuttered wall of windows, very clean, friendly staff, good continential breakfast included in the price. A gem!

This was our 3rd stay at the Normandy Inn, and the experience was as wonderful as our previous stays. This quaint old fashioned inn is located in a perfect location for a stay in Carmel. Near the delightful downtown, and just a few blocks from beautiful Carmel Beach. We have stayed at many places in our travels that were more... More

We enjoyed our stay here, great customer service, close to shopping, nice hanging baskets with flowers. Our only issue were the paper-thin walls. We had family members sleeping downstairs right below us, and we could hear them snoring very loudly. Loved Carmel, and hope to return some day, but will probably stay at another location.

A short walk to the beach & a sparkling clean room. Exactly what we wanted when staying in charming Carmel-By-The-Sea. The Normandy Inn also provided a welcoming, knowledgeable staff that made us feel right at home. The breakfast in the morning was delicious & well-stocked with wonderful premium muffins, hard-boiled eggs & yogurt, as well as many other delicious breakfast... More

My father-in-law raved about this hotel and was his go-to place when visiting Monterey peninsula. This hotel is right along the main drive, Ocean Ave, of Carmel by the Sea. Walking distance to shopping, and many great dining locations. We visited here one night with the kids. They begrudgingly went along with shopping all the art galleries, if we went... More

The best thing about Normandy Inn is its location. The Inn itself was cute with lots of hanging flower baskets on the balcony, and is located in the cutest part of downtown Carmel. The shops and restaurants in the area are the quintessential romantic Carmel. The rooms at Normandy Inn are small and basic and a bit out dated (it... More

Stayed in Maison Bridgitte. Smelled musty on our arrival - soon sorted out with cranking up the heating ( well turning it on actually!). All a bit tired. Right in the middle of Carmel though and the team were helpful. Not sure we would repeat the experience.
