No listing of the Costa Rican "Monte Verde Inn" but in case you find yourself in Monte Verde (long bus ride from San Jose, the capital city). This place has a spectacular view, the mountains in the west, the pacific ocean. Rooms are very simple, but clean. The owner, a man with integrity, hired an unscrupulous assistant. "Is there a...

Found the Monte Verde Inn to be an excellent value for the price ($109/night during Christmas week). We traveled with another couple and our rooms opened onto a shared balcony. The hotel is 5 blocks from the ocean and two blocks from the downtown shopping and dining area. The room was cosy and had the fairytale charm that Carmel-by-the-Sea is... More

Great location, but -- the tv's are terrible, small flat screen with only analog - no HD - the shower water press was the worst, and we could hear everything in the room directly above ours; also they close the front office at 9:00pm so if you have any problems - like the woman who left her small dog yapping...

We love coming to Carmel and love to bring our pup! This little place is so cozy and charming. Every room is unique. The grounds are very well maintained. This place is also centrally located so you can walk out at any time and be surrounded by shops and restaurants, not to mention the dog friendly beach minutes away walking!... More

We have stayed at this quaint Inn several times and have never been disappointed . For a girls food ,shopping and beach walking trip this is an excellent place. Barely off the Main Street of Ocean Ave about half way down to the beach. Wonderful restaurants just steps away. They have a great room they call the "family room". 2... More

I stayed at Monte Verde on a quick overnight getaway in Carmel while on a break from business travel. A last minute lark. I was put in the motel like Casa Carmel across the street unfortunately. Clean and fine but nothing special- and very noisy. If you stay ask for a room upstairs not on the ground floor where you... More

After a terrible evening in accommodations at their hotel that did not match what we originally booked, the owners of the hotel graciously put us up in their sister hotel in exquisite accommodations at The Cypress Inn!!!! Thank you so much for ensuring our time in Carmel was memorable all around!!

We booked the hotel online as we were going to arrive late. The price was good and we requested 2x queen rooms but I'm sure one was a king (smaller). The desk closed at 9pm so the key would be left under a mat but luckily we arrived just before. The staff were friendly and the room very clean. Really... More
