On the last couple of days of our sons spring break vacation to San Diego we decided to make a stop in Carmel in our way back to Portland. We booked a $225 room at the Coachmans inn through Bridget with Rent Monterey. We booked the room two days before our stay over the phone and received a verbal confirmation,... More

We were a little surprised to read this review. We did indeed receive a call to cancel this reservation when it was inside of the cancellation policy. It was noted by our reservations clerk (Resort 2 Me - not "Rent Monterey" - who initially recommended us was closed when you had tried to make your reservation with them) that you... More

The hotel is in a great location, quiet and comfortable. The third floor rooms all have gas fireplaces and we enjoyed that. Cookies are served in the evening and a coffee maker is in the room. It needs a bit of an update on the carpet and furnishings but other wise our room was very nice and comfortable, bed was... More

Thank you for your kinds words. We are currently in the works for replacing some of the carpeting in the rooms and our owners take great pride in maintaining standards for furnishings. Our maintenance staff goes through the rooms to check for little dings and dents (most of our furniture consists of antiques). We hope to see you again soon.... More

Great Inn, right downtown, with large, nicely decorated rooms. Clean and quaint with a nice little breakfast delivered right to your room! Rooms are very bright and well lit. Our room had a fireplace which was a nice touch (although we had incredibly nice weather and didn't use it). Perfect location downtown, you can walk anywhere you need to go,... More

The staff was great, told us all we need to know about the Monterey Peninsula. The rooms were clean and the complimentary breakfast was a plus. It is centrally located so walking around was easy breezy! The bed was VERY big and comfortable. This will be my go to place in Carmel.

We have stayed at the Coachman Inn for over 15 years now. Great location, don't have to worry about parking. Friendly owners and staff. Housekeeping is fantastic. Clean and spottless rooms. They have updated the whole place a few years ago. Very dog friendly!!! It's our go to place in Carmel.

I highly recommend Coachman Inn. It's located just a couple blocks from Ocean Avenue and all the great shops in Carmel by the Sea. Rates are affordable at under $150.00 including a light breakfast. Believe me, if my wife likes this inn you will too.

Thank you for your kind review! We love inns too - it depends on what someone traveling to the area is looking for. If you want a large hotel with 24-hr room service, a huge business center, and hundreds of rooms spread across dozens of floors, we are not for you. But if you want to experience Carmel like a...

Quaint is the perfect word to describe the Coachman's Inn. The rooms are spotless (rugs could be replaced). There are fireplaces in every room along with a large flat screen tv.

We had high hopes for our trip to Carmel. After staying at the Hyatt Highlands in Carmel several years ago, we decided to stay in the town itself.
