We chose an upstairs room so we could have the view to the bay and it was worth it. A quaint motel within easy walk to downtown Carmel shops and restaurants. Clean and comfortable but breakfast was very average. An added bonus was a laundromat and dry cleaners in the building next door. The person at check in was very... More

I was skeptical about this place at first because I'm the kind of girl who likes the modern luxurious hotels. I was pleasantly surprised!! What a quaint little bed & breakfast! They give you a picnic basket every morning full of breakfast goodies, they leave it at your doorstep! We had room 114, definitely the room with the best view.... More

This is our second stay at the Horizon Inn. We returned because we liked it so much. Our hotel needs are for a clean room, comfortable bed and a warm shower. The Horizon Inn meets all those qualifications and MORE! First, there is plenty of counter space in the bathroom. This is really important for all those products I use... More

just far enough removed but still within easy walking distance from the hustle and bustle of Ocean Ave on a busy weekend, my wife and I found Horizon to be the perfect place to stay. Helpful and pleasant front desk staff. We were able to check in early on Friday afternoon, 3/7/14. our King room with a fireplace was quite... More

Horizon Inn is located about 2 blocks off the main street in Carmel, so still a good location. The rooms are spacious and ours was clean and modern with a small kitchenette (microwave, mini-fridge and a few dishes). Our 2nd floor room (101) had a small balcony overlooking the pool and an okay view of the ocean (over rooftops). The... More

Had an ocean view room with a nice little balcony. Bed was mushy, and made so that it almost seemed short sheeted. Big heavy hot coverlet and nothing else. Hmmm. Even with the patio door wide open the coverlet was too warm, but the sheet alone was not warm enough. Furniture and decor is outdated. Nice little fireplace and about... More

We revisited the Horizon Inn for the 4th time - our last visit was two years ago. We were provided a "repeat visitor discount" that helped bring the cost down significantly. Our room was on the second floor with both mountain and ocean views. Nice deck with chairs for afternoon reading. The room showed a little sign of aging, but... More

I've been in this hotel in New Years Eve with my family: two children and two adults. My sister in law was there too, with her son in another room. The room's size it was very good for a family, but it's little old. I've made my reservation 9 months before the trip in the site of the hotel, in... More

I spent time recently locating the two reservations you referenced. Both reservations were booked through different sources but neither party spoke directly with our staff until they arrived for the New Year's Eve holiday. It is important to note that your family booked online a room with 2 separate beds to accommodate your family of 4 which can only be... More

We were hosts with my husband for 2 nights and we really enjoyed staying there. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the location is close to the main street, yet secluded. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I will certainly go back.

Reasonably priced, cosy and comfortable. Just stayed for two nights with a few friends to explore the Carmel area. Beds are very comfortable and the hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Carmel. I especially liked the fireplace in the room: gives a very unique flavor. Loved the "breakfast in a basket at your door" touch as well though... More
