2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was uncomfortably hot. Curtains had been pulled back before we arrived, letting in the sun. With no air conditioning and only a small fan it didn't cool down much. Worse, we had to keep the windows open and our beds were 10 feet from the sidewalk and 15 feet from the street, which meant noisy pedestrians at night and... More

The room lacked important safety features. There was no grab bar in the bathtub (and no non-skid mat either), There are no in-room safes, and no card-key system. The room didn't seem very clean, but this may have been because the laundry detergent used for the towels and sheets left a peculiar odor. There is no elevator, and the parking... More

Charming and comfortable rooms at this Inn, located only 1 1/2 blocks from the main street of Carmel, Ocean Avenue. This location makes it convenient to walk to the beach, or shopping at the many lovely boutiques, viewing the local art in the assorted galleries or dining at numerous local eateries. The reception staff is wonderful and hand out an... More

The Inn was ideal for our short stay and met our expectations. We stayed overnight on the 4th July - an unplanned getaway to the coast. The room was very clean & neat with the general facilities you'd expect. The Inn is ideally located just minutes from the main shopping streets and restaurants, and an easy stroll down to the...

We enjoyed a 3 night stay, the staff was very friendly and the rooms well maintained and very clean. The bed and linens were very nice and comfortable. Not everyroom has a fireplace so be sure to ask if that is something you want. The inn is in the process of adding a breakfast room off the lobby, it looks... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in January of 2015 before heading up to San Francisco on business. We have nothing bad to say about this location - the rooms were spotless, the location was prime for walking to the beach, shops and restaurants, or taking the rental car and heading out to the Carmel Valley wineries....

Started looking for hotels too close to the Saturday we were looking to stay one night in Carmel on the way north to San Francisco, so our options were already a little limited. Coachman's Inn seemed the best value of our options, but it cost much more than we prefer to pay per night. This would have been fine if... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and we were quite satisfied with our stay. To sum it up: - The rooms were spacious and cleaned well - The beds were soft and very comfortable. - The shower pressure was ok, but it was slightly difficult to adjust to the correct temperature between too hot or cold. - The wifi signal was...

We had two double rooms at the coachman for 1 night. The inn is conveniently located for the shops and restaurants in Carmel and the rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. The courtyard layout works well and the rooms are easily accessed via stairs to the balcony. The complimentary breakfast was small but enough to kick start the day.... More
