After a very long drive from Oregon to the Central Valley of California to visit our kids and grandbabies for a few days, my husband wanted to surprise me with a relaxing evening in Carmel on our way home....which turned in to a surprising two days! He did a little secret research and booked a room at the Coachman's Inn.... More

The Coachman's Inn is charming and cozy. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated, and very clean. The bed was comfy. Location is perfect. Just a block and a half from Ocean Ave. so we walked everywhere. Parking is tight if you arrive later then 4 or 5 but still close on the street. Breakfast is brought to your room each... More

Very comfortable. My kid wanted to stay there one more night! WiFi signal was weak in my room. I had to be at the door to get connected. We also loved the continental breakfast which was delivered to the door in the morning.

This was a great place to stay for our weekend getaway. No need to take your car out of the parking lot, as you are just a block away from the main roadway in Carmel. It is also a few blocks away from the ocean. There is a complimentary breakfast, as well as a fireplace in the room to use... More

The Coachmen's Inn is our favorite place to stay when visiting Carmel. The rooms are quaint and more B&B than luxury hotel but it fits the ambiance of this fabulous low key city. It is a short walking distance to all our favorite restaurants and the beach. Every morning a perfect sized light breakfast is delivered. It includes croissants from... More

Stayed at the Coachman inn for one night on our Pacific Coast Highway trip. The room was very cosy ,inviting and the bathroom was spotless! Unlike the previous person who disliked the continental breakfast we loved that it was delivered to the door in the morning where we could enjoy it the privacy of our room! Off street parking, friendly... More

The place was clean, with friendly staff. Fresh cookies on arrival. The room had everything we needed for our over-night stay apart from a decent breakfast. I asked where the breakfast area was the following morning, only to be told 'oh we bring that to your room'. Okay..... So I queried this and the lady informed me it was in... More

We had a great stay at this cute little place. It's a quick few blocks to the beach, and very close to all the restaurants and shops in town. Furnishings and such are kind of old, but that's part of the charm. It may be worth noting that none of the rooms have AC. It didn't matter to us (especially... More

My husband and I have stayed here 4 times in the last couple years, with staying at 7 other inns in Carmel by the sea this is by far our absolute favorite. From the ladies at the front desk to the comfortable bed to the spa they have. We have never been disappointed! We highly recommend this inn in Carmel... More
