Spent three nights here August 2015. Absolutely perfect, Chose this on basis on Trip Advisor reports and we were not disappointed. Excellent location just one block from Downtown but very quiet. Huge room with great bathroom. Staff were really helpful. Breakfast included is at Clint’s Mission Ranch (about 10 mins walk) which was fantastic. Outside space to relax and enjoy... More

Our stay at the Homestead was wonderful! We were a family of four and the rooms were huge and well appointed! There is a free breakfast at the Mission Ranch. The grounds are amazing, we walked to the ocean from there and then through the scenic route and back to the hotel. It was a three mile loop, but just... More

As other reviewers have noted, the first impression of the Homestead is that it's a bit "rustic". Looks can truly be deceiving. Several of my family members recently stayed here while attending a wedding and were all very impressed. The rooms were comfortable and were fairly quiet given most are right on the street. There is no parking but we... More

We recently stayed in the Homesteads renovated rooms. My parents and son were in one room and we were in the other with my daughter. These rooms have two queen beds each. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and we felt well worth $260 each. The linens, finishes, bathrooms, fireplace, and amenities are first class. We were so surprised how good... More

The Homestead offered somewhat rustic accommodations and I wasn't all that impressed upon arrival. After a short period of time I fell in love and could have stayed longer than two nights. Our room was priced well, was clean, and so quiet even though we were in a room that sat on the street. One thing to note is that... More

We stayed 2 nights in one of the Rustic Rooms for $95. It was great. Large closet with 2 white terry robes, 2 extra pillows, another blanket and a luggage rack. In the bathroom there is shampoo & conditioner in one of those wall mounted things. Nicely scented mini lotion bottle. Nice firm mattress. Only complaint was the hard pillows.Should... More

Honestly I normally stay in much nicer places, but we were lucky to get a room for,the weekend, and the prices were surprisingly modest. We were in a remodeled room, which was clean but very unremarkable. If we had paid a lot, we would have not given it a high rating. But it was fine for a few days and... More

We were attracted to staying in a Clint Eastwood property and liked the idea of being in Carmel township, while keeping the rustic feel of the homestead. Room was basic, although the price of just over $100 was great value. Breakfast at Mission Ranch was more than plentiful. And nice to be able to walk into Carmel with its range... More

The hotel room only cost slighty over a hundred dollars a night and had everything you would want. Clean, comfortable, quite, modern and evident that appropriate care had been taken in selecting the elements of the room which all fitted together perfectly. Carmel is a beautiful place to visit and this could not be a better place to stay while... More

Hi - I really wanted to like this hotel. I really did. After all, it's owned by Clint Eastwood! And was only 2 blocks from the beach! But turning up to check-in to be greeted by a huge warning of asbestos in the building wasn't a very positive omen. The concierge upgraded me to a refurbished King Suite for the... More
