This review is written by both me (the outdoorsy easy to please one) and my wife (the one with class and taste) Overall this was a great stay, close to town with nice staff, and really can't complain. Here is the breakdown: Morgan's pros: nice homey decor, rustic without being kitchy, small and quaint, nice garden, clean rooms Kevin's pros:... More

We stayed in one of the rustic rooms. We felt as if we had our own cottage. The room was small but clean and comfortable. A large walk-in closet provided plenty of room for luggage. The hotel is located near restaurants and shops. A continental breakfast at The Mission Ranch is included in the price of the room. It's a... More

We just booked a last minute stay at the Homestead Inn in Carmel, when we also could not get a room at Mission Ranch. It was just perfect! We had 3 rooms - the lower level just off the reception area was for my momma, and was spacious and updated. My husband and I had the room that opens out... More

If you're looking for it all in Carmel: location, affordability, cleanliness, this is the perfect place. The Homestead Inn is tucked away in a great spot in Carmel. Blocks from the coast, yet steps away from the neat shops and restaurants of Carmel By The Sea. We stayed in room 43. Right off the main entrance by the front desk.... More

We stayed at this hotel when we couldn't get an extra night at the Mission Ranch. Our room was recently remodeled, very comfortable, with a large selection of cable channels and strong wifi. spotlessly clean. The location was right in the centre of everything. Throughly reccommend.

Great location, within walking distance of the downtown area and the beach. Didn't deal with the staff much (phone reservation, check-in and check-out) but they were friendly and pleasant. We were able to extend our check-out to by a half hour to 11:30a which was nice. We were in a third floor room in the main building. We don't mind... More

We booked two Rustic Rooms for our one night stay. These rooms have not been refurbished but were very clean, well appointed and comfortable - if just a little dated (with a tiny bathroom!). However for the price we paid (which is very reasonable for Carmel) we were happy with our rooms and highly recommend the property. The receptionist was... More

We arrived in Carmel at 6 O'clock in the evening and got a last minute booking by calling the hotel direct. The receptionist was very friendly and we were impressed by the room we were given it was very cosy with a fireplace and huge bathroom. Great location and will definitely return for another visit.

We have stayed at the Homestead many times and have always enjoyed whichever room we get. We do have our favorites, but each is quite comfortable. It's location to shops and restaurants is hard to beat. Prices are very reasonable, particularly for Carmel.
