We spend 3 nights at this bed and breakfast. We just plan to stay in Carmel for one night, but we experience some difficulties with a motorcycle, the hotel staff help us a lot. We will come back, if you stay here you will find great service in a great location in Carmel. Ps Love the cookies

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. Towels are snowy white and the king size bed was comfortable. This is not your 500 room monstrous ultra modern hotel. It's an Inn quaint with a great staff.... More

Thank you for your kind review! We are in the process of replacing some of our carpeting (and always do our best to spot treat any problem areas). Thank you for appreciating us for who we are - not a big, brass and glass hotel but a friendly,quaint place to stay right in downtown. More

Stayed over for one night on our way to Santa Barbara. Had a lovely stay. Great room that was spacious and clean, loved the fireplace and the running theme throughout the establishment. The cookies offered at 5pm are gorgeous and the breakfast is so cute. We arrived at 8pm after a long day and were checked in by a lovely... More

Thank you for your kind review. Our owners have spent a lot of time shopping for just the right items for all of the rooms so that our theme ties in throughout the property. It's a labor of love - after all, who doesn't love to shop for fabrics and furnishings! We have had a couple of comments lately about... More

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. We were disappointed in our room, and actually checked out a day early. While there are many pluses to staying in town, the easy walk to the beach, great shops and dining,... More

Thank you for your review and for staying in downtown Camel. Honestly, we can never be the Park Hyatt Highlands Inn - that is a 4-star hotel considered one of the top properties in the United States. In checking their rates during your time frame, there rate would have been more than double the cost of our room and we... More

Driving up the coast from LA to SF, we needed a place to stay. We called around and found the Coachman's Inn, and we are glad we did.

We are stating here now and are very impressed with the experience. The hotel has obviously spent a good amount of time and money making the room attractive and comfortable, down to the smallest details. Would recommend this place to anyone!

My husband, daughter, her friend and myself (4 people) just spent two nights here. Room was large and clean. Toiletries and towels plentiful. Room looked out directly on San Carlos Street so at times it was a little loud but we were mostly out so it was not a bother. Keurig coffee maker and a very simple continental breakfast delivered...

Don't listen to the whiny reviews. Coachman's Inn is a charming place to stay in Carmel. We stayed in a Deluxe King Room. The check in person was polite and friendly.
