    The room was fine but they deliver a continental breakfast to your room. The problem is that you don't get to choose what you want. I don't want a sugary cereal and a pastry or a plain bagel. There was fresh fruit included. Convenient location for walking into the center of town.

    Carmel, with love! We have been frequent guests at both the Horizon Inn AND the Ocean View Lodge since 1998. Both facilities offer the comforts of home (and then some, like a breakfast basket delivered to your room with a newspaper!). No need to worry about parking at the top of the hill in Carmel - there's a lot, lower... More

    Breathtaking views of the water and ocean, as well as the mountains. We could see the fog line roll in from the water along the ridge line of the mountain. The inn was quiet and peaceful. The grounds were well-kept. The location affords a short walk into town and to the beach.

    ocean views from the room. Quiet location for resting but you are walking distance to everything delightful in Carmel. Our king size bed was very comfortable and the breakfast basket in the morning eases you into the day. The decor and fabrics were a bit dated but this is a spotless and super safe spot. Also great hub for Big... More

    We stayed for two nights on our journey up the PCH. I had very high hopes as I read several reviews. In the end it was just ok for us. (I would give a 3.5 if I could). Rooms were very dated 1980s decor. We didn't have a fireplace as some mentioned. Carpets had some stains. Otherwise very clean. Loved... More

    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
