To review The Coachman again I wasn't aware I could. After 41 years of visiting Carmel in August like clockwork, I think we are (a group of us) about 25 years at the Coachman. The hotel is under new ownership but you would not know it for the personal service has maintained a splendid standard. A breakfast/tea room has been... More

We booked this inn because it was located downtown. What we didn't realize was how close it was to ALL of the shops and restaurants, and Carmel Plaza for your morning coffee run. The room DID have a Keurig, and liquid creamer (in the fridge), but if you wanted to get some fancy coffee, it was literally a block away!... More

This was one of the more reasonably prices options which I could find in Carmel (no easy feat) and all in all we were happy with our choice. The location is perfect, right in the middle of town, and our room was very small but comfortably appointed. Just two points: 1. Parking is available but not guaranteed and we did... More

The location of the hotel is ideal. But for the price we were charged, the room was clearly not updated for a long time. There is not a/c, so when we stayed during the summer, the room was uncomfortably hot. There was a small old fan which was pretty useless to cool down the room. Coachman's inn advertises as B&B,...

Romance is an understatement. We were catered to when we arrived and breakfast was brought to our room. Room decorated with romance in mind, but not too frilly to make a man feel uncomfortable. Four years later we returned to get the same quality service.

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

Thank you for taking your time to share your comments. The Monterey Peninsula enjoys temperate weather throughout the year with natural coastal air conditioning therefore not one of Carmel,s inns and boutique hotels don’t have a/c but please know that I apologize if the temperature during your visit marred your stay. Please know that we always wish our guests have... 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
