We enjoyed our five night stay at the horizon inn. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our room for four nights was on the second floor, very comfortable , large, clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was large and also comfortable. There was a fireplace, (but we never used it) and a small balcony overlooking the parking lot, Every... More

This place was absolutely adorable!!! Tiny and quaint but they maximize every inch of the space. It reminded me of Europe with a lot of beautiful outdoor space, decorated with planters and little breakfast tables and benches. I believe we stayed in room 112, which had a very homey, welcoming, comforting feeling. A decent size room with a king size... More

Pleasant room with a view of the sea, and the room was exceptionally clean. There are lots of toiletries and plenty of towels and there was a good sized fridge and small kitchen area in the room. The balcony was nice. Wifi was ok, not the fastest, but fine. There is not a lift to the upstairs rooms, which may... More

We stayed at the Ocean View Lodge which included my husband, our 13 year old son and 2 dogs. This was are first time in Carmel. The Lodge was perfect for us. We stayed in room 201. We were celebrating a birthday so for an extra $40.00 we had balloons and cup cakes waiting at the room for us. This... More

Bearing in mind that lodgings in Carmel are expensive, the Horizon Inn was good value for money. We stayed in a double room with terrace and (partial) ocean view (#102) on the top floor. The inn is only a few blocks from the center of town and a short walk to the beach. The room looks like a typical English... More

Man! Great price for a cozy cottage suite with jacuzzi tub and fireplace located in scenic Carmel. Comfortable king sized bed, nice linens, and a short distance to shoppes and restaurants. Two thumbs up!

My wife and I spent 3 days in Carmel and stayed at this great little hotel. Rooms were nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We loved having a continental breakfast delivered to our doorstep every morning. Location is central to Carmel and everything is in easy walking distance. We definitely will be staying here again on our next... More

We stopped at Carmel on our way down the coast and didn't have anywhere booked and a lovely lady recommended the horizon inn and she was right to. The inn was a lovely place to stay while in Carmel, the rooms were very big, the views were fantastic, the breakfast hamper was so cute, the location couldn't have been better,... More

It's located on the hill in the quite corner of the street that leads to downtown. Bring walking shoes - most streets are not for heels. Charming breakfast by your door in the basket every morning. Great amenities in every room. Enjoy!

First of all the room(King balcony, 2nd floor, with a partial Ocean view)had been (I suspect) recently remodeled; nicely painted, new bathroom floor tile and shower tile, plus fixtures looked new(sink & countertop & toilet), with plenty of storage drawers. View from nice size balcony, was looking at the ocean and Point Lobos reserve(when we were not out walking around,... More
