I enjoyed my two night stay here. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Breakfast was delivered to the room daily in a picnic basket. There was a fireplace in the room and this was a nice touch because in early April the nights are a bit cool. Many restaurants were located only a few blocks away. Downhill... More

We stayed at the Inn for only one night and was disappointed with the overall appearance of the room the brown and beige decoration made it feel dismal, it had a large spa bath in the Main room which seemed to be a waste, especially with the shortage of water in California, however on a positive note the log fire...

Excellent location: walking distance to town. Clean rooms. Some of the rooms have views with a balcony ,they are more expensive. I never had a parking problem . You can park out on the street or there is a parking garage next to it .

My husband I stayed for a weekend at the Horizon Inn. As others have mentioned, the hotel is a couple of blocks up a very minor hill from the "center" of town. The town is really multiple blocks so the hotel is still very close to all of the shops and restaurants. We stayed in one of the cottages and... More

My kids and I like this hotel very much! Love the wood fireplace! Walking distance to downtown Carmel! Ocean Beach is not far away. We like to bring our dogs, and it's great that there is a park very near where we can take them to do their business. We've stayed at this hotel before. It's good to see that... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon adventure through california in November . It's a lovely little motel near the top of carmel. Carmel shops are only a five minute walk down hill. To the beautiful beach was about 15 minute walk down the hill, if you don't stop at all the shops. I definitely recommend the walk down... More

We were only staying for one night but I wish it had been longer - lovely hotel, great big bed, microwave, coffee, and a lovely continental breakfast delivered in a wicker picnic basket! Such a quaint town! A very good stop off after an amazing drive up the Pacific Coast highway.

Our 4 day stay was great. The front desk folks are super friendly and very helpful.Our room was spotless and was kept that way throughout our stay. Others have mentioned the breakfast basket.What a great idea.No one knocking on your door with a tray, just a basket full of goodies left quietly at your door between 7 and 8 am.... More

We found The Horizon by accident - looking for a neighboring hotel. We decided to look at their room with the best view anyway (our #1 hotel priority!) It was fabulous. We scoped out the neighboring hotel we had originally planned on staying at and their view and customer service was far inferior to that of the Horizon. So the... More

This charming inn may be an uphill walk from shops and restaurants, but if you have a second floor ocean view room it is all worth it. We loved our 2 night stay here. The room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was delivered each morning in a basket complete with fruit, cereal, milk, juice and pastries. Amenities in the bathroom... More
