My boyfriend and I stayed at this Inn after staying in Monterey for a few days. Carmel is a such a charming and beautiful place and this inn was as well. We came in the off season, so we were able to book the room at half price, which was awesome, AND it came with complimentary champagne. It also offers... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Forest Lodge Inn. It sits on top Ocean Ave. over looking downtown and the beach. Although there isn't room service at the Forest Lodge (after staying in Carmel MANY times, non of the Inn's and B&B's provide room service or breakfast. What little continental breakfast there is sometimes provided, they are muffins from... More

My husband and I had such a great time at the Forest Lodge in Carmel. We loved the comfy yet elegant atmosphere. We stayed in the Westin House room which connected to the Dali Suite where two of our friends stayed. The two rooms and livingroom area made quite a large space to enjoy. Felt like a vacation home. The... More

This inn is absolutely amazing. It is located perfectly in the heart of downtown Carmel which made shopping, dinner, and drinks very accessible. The rooms were clean and beautiful while maintaining the integrity of the Carmel atmosphere. The owner is extremely friendly and the staff very polite. Overall this was a great experience and I would recommend this place to... More

We stayed in the Ocean House cottage and were delighted with its quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The complimentary sherry, the inviting fireplace to keep us warm from the falling rain (tempting us to never leave the room!), the lovely décor, comfy bedding, and the spacious room (plenty for us and our baby gear) are all reasons we will make this...

My husband & I stayed at the Forest Lodge for a weekend get-a-way and I HIGHLY recommend it! The room was tastefully decorated, sweet, charming, and in the perfect location. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and guided us to the right spots. We were given tokens to exchange for breakfast at a local, organic cafe in the heart of downtown... More

I fell in love with the Lamp Lighter Inn earlier this year and have been back twice in just the few months since then. This time, it was suggested that I try their sister property, Forest Lodge. It was beautiful and cozy and charming, but compared to staying at the Lamp Lighter, it left a few things to be desired.... More

We originally booked a stay at the Garden House but since there was construction right next door, we were relocated to the Lamplighter Inn. Kudos to the photographer who took the website pictures of the Garden House because it looked very inviting online however when we opened the door to check out our rooms, we were so disappointed! The room... More

Stayed here 3 nights in September (19-22), and simply loved the Forest Lodge! We had originally planned to stay in Monterey, thinking Carmel would be totally out of our price range. At the last minute, I stumbled across this place, and was able to reserve the Dali room, at a very reasonable rate. We couldn't have been more pleased. There... More
