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

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
