A peaceful spot in a residential area within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Carmel by the Sea. The address we had was for Mission Ranch, not Homestead Inn, so we were initially confused about what we had booked. The staff at Mission Ranch informed us that Homestead Inn is a sister hotel, presumably to take the... More

Our room was quite large, lots of windows, nice view, easy access in and out, and quiet. We walked everywhere in town. Needed to drive to Mission Ranch for breakfast near the tennis courts. Very friendly and helpful staff in both locations. We recommend the Homestead Inn to all our family and friends.

The Homestead, in downtown Carmel, is in a fantastic location and is an excellent value. We stayed in a remodeled room for one night, and a rustic room (51) three nights. The rustic room was smaller, but still large enough, with the same amenities. The outdoor courtyard is the perfect place to relax with a cup of morning coffee or... More

We had stayed at the Mission Ranch for one night then we moved to The Homestead for 3 nights. We stayed in Room 44 on the pavement which was great as we had a lot of luggage and there were no stairs. We were able to park right outside our room which was good so we could keep an eye... More

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
