Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is close enough to down town to walk. It is hard to find parking in downtown Carmel. Restaurants are good. There are numerous galleries and art shops to be visited. The beach is too far wor walking. I would recommend this to my friends.

The Horizon is 3 or 4 blocks off Ocean Avenue, which is the main street in Carmel. It's an easy walk to Ocean, but it is all uphill back to the Horizon. If you have bad knees, this is not the place for you. The room was very clean and modern. I was pleased and would stay here again. The... More

Passing through Carmel between Christmas and New Year's day, we checked this place out and decided to stay there primarily because we were traveling with our dog and this place allowed pets (for an additional $30 fee). I'm glad we did. We were given, on the Ocean View Lodge side of the property (a misnomer in the case of our... More

Had an excellent experience here. Stayed for a week over Christmas in cottage 203 which overlooked the path between the cottages, all lit with lanterns and Christmas lights. Very festive! Front desk staff very friendly and helpful, especially Lacie. Breakfast was delivered quietly by 7:30 am in a picnic basket by the front door. My husband missed his hot eggs... More

Very nice place to stay. Room was spacious, had a balcony and ocean view just like the website shows. In room 102, very spacious bathroom. Nice area for coffee maker, refrigerator. The morning food basket they bring to the room each day is lovely! Very clean room! Conformable bed! The hotel and town was very festive for the season.

This is a great place to stay in Carmel. Really nice rooms, breakfast and off-street parking. An easy walk to downtown and lots of great restaurants. We have stayed here previously and will certainly do so again.

We were only in Carmel for one night but found our room very comfortable with the added benefit of being within walking distance of the main shopping and dining streets. A late night jacuzzi followed by drying off by the open fire was a highlight of our stay after being out to dinner. Free breakfast basket with pastry, fruit and... More

Some friends of ours selected the Horizon Inn for a group visit to Carmel, and we're so glad they did! The staff was delightful. The accommodations are charming and comfortable.They deliver a really wonderful breakfast in a basket every morning! The location was perfect. We walked to the beach every morning and wandered around town every evening. The fireplace was... More

Just stayed here this past weekend (Nov. 7th-9th). We were in room #114 which is an end room that has a beautiful premium sea view and balcony with no one underneath you and a fireplace and king bed. This is a lovely inn. Very quaint and in a area just four blocks to Ocean Ave. It's sits up on a... More

What a room we got here! We stayed at the Horizon Inn in Carmel, off of 4th and Junipero. The room number escapes me, may have been 414, either way ask for the room on the first floor with no room above it, a patio with premium ocean view and fireplace. We had no idea what we were in for,... More
