We were impressed by the lovely room, the reasonable price, the very helpful staff at the front desk, and the quiet. Because it is four blocks from Ocean Avenue (the main drag), we did not hear any traffic noise at all. Each morning a basket of delicious breakfast goodies appeared at our door. The items in it were different each... More

We stayed for one night before driving down the Big Sur. On arrival we got a warm welcome with lots of useful information about Carmel. Our room was very clean and a good size. You get your breakfast in a basket which is put on your door step in the morning. This is a good idea but there wasn't really... More

We found the Horizon Inn on our own without a referral from anyone. We scored! Everything from the great front desk woman that checked us in to the wonderful breakfast basket left outside our door at 7:30 a.m. was just right.

We stayed in a cottage room for our anniversary. The suite was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We especially liked the fireplace and jacuzzi. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Considering the amenities and location was a good value. We definitely would stay at The Horizon Inn when we are in Carmel in the future.

My wife and I stopped over at the Horizon Inn for a couple of nights on the drive down CA1. The girl on checkin was very friendly and welcoming, and soon had us in our room. The hotel's location was great, just a couple of blocks away from Ocean Ave. We had a bit of an ocean view from the... More

I surprised my wife with a trip to Carmel for her birthday. The staff was great and welcoming, and did a great job setting up the room with the 'birthday package' I bought. Most of the places in Carmel are rather expensive, and I thought this place was the best bang for my buck. I would definitely go back.

The Horizon Inn was a wonderful place to call home for the few days that we were in Carmel. Here's the highlights . . . LOCATION: Perfect for us - far enough away from the hustle and traffic of Ocean Avenue, yet close enough to walk anywhere fairly easily. THE ROOM: Upstairs #121, had a nice ocean view and in... More

I wasn't sure how I would feel a about this place, but I was pleasantly surprised! We had room 120 and it was spectacular. The room has a fireplace, flat screen TV, Internet is free. There is a refrigerator and microwave. They provide luxurious bathrobes and a picnic basket in the morning with lots of goodies. Definitely would stay here... More

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
