We (dog included) have stayed many times at Carmel Country Inn. It's a convenient walk to town yet away from the traffic and noise. Rooms are comfortable and the breakfast and all-day snacks are delicious. Amy takes very good care of her guests. I cannot stress the convenience of on-site parking enough. We always enjoy talking with the guests-most of... More

There is no air-conditioning which is fine since the cool breeze was great, but there are no screens on any of the windows so yes that meant bugs in the room. The mattresses are beginning to show their age and were not very comfortable. There was a car show in town and one guest was up at 6 and revving... More

As mentioned in previous management responses, not just on Carmel Country Inn's listing but the majority of other lodging properties in Carmel, the weather here is normally not conducive to having air conditioning and therefore, no lodging properties in Carmel or the Monterey Peninsula area have air conditioning, nor do we have screens, because we don't have bugs.

We really liked the Carmel Country Inn. We were not able to find parking in town, and I checked if we could come early and they let us check in and park at the hotel. We had a King Suite, which had a Dutch door, which was really cute, and nice to get air in the room. The bathroom was... More

We came for some quiet days during a round trip and found everything as expected. Foggy wheather and cold summerdays was not the responsibility of the nice little b&b place. The place is absolutely dog friendly as we've experienced during our stay. We've left our Jack Russell terrier in Germany but all other guests were accompenied by their friendly dogs.

Thank you for taking the time to write about our inn and thank you so much for realizing the weather is not our responsibility. Too often we get a lower rating do to weather or noise we have absolutely no control over. If you are back home as of yet, I'm sure your Jack Russell is glad to see you. More

Very nice facility. Extremely helpful staff. Very nice "continental" breakfast. Above the normal fruit, cereal, etc, they had quiche. The fruit was fresh cut and plentiful. The coffee was available at all hours in addition to snacks. The pastries were a cut above. We had the smallest room, during a heat wave, with construction next door. The construction was not...

Thank you for your kind words about our inn.

We will keep coming back to Carmel Country Inn! Well maintained, comfortable, clean and friendly without being intrusive. Well priced for Carmel. Very relaxing in spite of some nearby construction this time. Didn't bother us a bit. Our Westie knew exactly where to head to as soon as she came in for her second visit. Guess she had fond memories... More

We stayed a few nights here while visiting Carmel. Carmel is a small place so most hotels and inns are walking distance to downtown - the Country Inn is a 5-10 min walk from any place you need to go. The Inn itself is nice and had good breakfast. Our only complaint was the noise from neighbouring suites. By no... More

Thank you for your comments regarding you stay. As all lodging properties go in Carmel, they were built a long time ago and insulation was not a priority in those days. If noise is a concern, we have 2 newer construction rooms, our Luxury King Studio rooms $325-$345 which are fully insulated and private. Our Deluxe King Studio $295-$325 is... More

This is our favorite place to stay when we visit Carmel. The staff is great. The breakfast and afternoon snacks are awesome. The rooms are clean. It is a short walk to downtown and the beach.
