I can completely agree with all of the bed reviews of this hotel. We were looking on booking.com and wanted to know further details about the hotel. The woman on the phone was very rude to my husband, despite this we decided to visit in person to see if the accomodation would be suitable enough. The lady on reception was... More

I know that this isn't a 5 star high end hotel but compared to some other bed and breakfasts this one just didn't compare . We stayed in room 8 it was small which we expected and the room although cozy... More

I rely on Trip Advisor for information regarding the best places to stay, dine, etc. Unfortunately the Monte Verde Inn doesn't meet the standards I expected for Carmel. The location is wonderful, among the best in Carmel. Unfortunately I have to rate the rest of the amenities as less than acceptable. Rooms are tiny, really tight quarters. There is no... More

We just recently stayed here in June 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. Ashley was so helpful and personable. Our Queen room (#9) was very small but SO cozy. I loved the tiny deck and the bathroom was very spacious. The location was ideal so although the parking was a bit tight, we just parked and walked everywhere. A breakfast... More

Sadly the last thing I want to deal with on a vacation is an argumentative, innkeeper. We have stayed at many lovely inns in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and this Inn 's rooms are fine, however the innkeeper is rude, loud, and argumentative to both her staff and customers. Whatever you do, do not stay in room MV five. The room is directly... More

Dear “Who need’s an argumentative innkeeper” First, I am writing to say that this review in very true in part and in some a gross misunderstanding. You have repeatedly expressed that it was I the manager that was holding conversations with employees that were loud, angry, and with foul language, but this is not correct. The conversation you overheard was... More

We've stayed here in the past but it's fallen off in quality. We were placed in the Casa de Carmel, across the street. Very tiny and dingy room, old fixtures. No available parking, had to hunt for a place in the neighborhood nearby. Terrible breakfast, poor quality items, poor quality appetizers and wine, much worse than before. Very disappointed at...

Dear “Substandard and overpriced” We were a little taken aback when reading this review. Yes! When you arrived you seemed angry and upset even before you visited our rooms. Your daughter even came back in the office and apologized for your behavior not once but twice during your stay with us. You elected to choose this room at Casa de... More

Perfect location in heart of Carmel. Only downside is that parking lot noise/light is somewhat audible/visible in some of the rooms. Karen at front desk was great source of info. We enjoyed the wine and cheese and guitar music in the courtyard before heading out for dinner. Bed was comfortable, shower was forceful. Loved the breakfast basket left by the... More

We had numerous issues with this Inn but couldn't beat the location. When we arrived we were offered a choice of rooms. When we went to the one we wanted, the door was open and the room was not cleaned. We were told the rooms wouldn't be cleaned that day so we didn't really have a choice. The room we... More
