I have stayed at the Mission several short and longer times. Each time we return to the Carmel area we make it our home. Facilities are immaculate,beautiful,safe and very convenient location to everything in the area AND they are DOG FRIENDLY. Excellent choice.

Fun atmosphere and great staff. We stayed there for a friend's wedding that was in Big Sure.They took care the wedding guests and made sure we had everything we needed. Comfortable, clean, quiet rooms and a great fire pit!

We were in the Carmel/Monterey area for the BSIM Half Marathon and selected this hotel because we were traveling with our dogs and it was priced lower than some of the other dog-friendly properties in Carmel-by-the-Sea and Monterey. We were pleased with how quiet the room was (which we were a little concerned about because we were right near the... More

Stayed here for one night on a travelzoo deal which included the buffet breakfast. The hotel is a few blocks from downtown and just off highway 1. Rooms have clearly been renovated recently and were clean and very comfortable. Carmel is a very expensive place to stay and this hotel provided good value

The inn is conveniently located literally 10 meters from highway 1 in Carmel. It’s across from the main shopping center too. That means you won’t get seaside views but aside from this, the inn is pretty good. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms are especially nice with stone showers and unlimited high quality toiletries, instead of disposable bottles.... More

Our hotel selection for this weekend getaway was based on being able to bring my partners service dog along. We ended up at the Carmel Mission Inn. I'd definitely recommend this property, although they seem to put all the dog owners on the same ground floor wing of the property so you can't get a nicer higher up room. The... More

Last minute trip to Carmel found few hotel options. Took a chance on this hotel being away from downtown. When we drove up I was nervous by the older exterior look but once inside was pleasantly surprised. The bed was comfortable, nice pillows, nice thick towels, shower was good and the room was very clean. Nothing fancy here but everything... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Carmel Valley Inn. The check-in was quick and efficient. Our room was on the 4th floor, though there wasn't really a view, except of the roof. We didn't care about that. The room itself was nicely decorated. Above the bed was a blue-green mural that could be softly lit. We left... More

Service is good. Price reasonable. Great location. Took a long time to get the room cleaned though. Almost 4:00 PM on a Monday. Couldn't enjoy the room during the day. Perhaps scheduling issues but would stay again. Will try the meals as well. When I booked, the free breakfast wasn't included. :-(

Stayed here for three nights on our trip from LA to SF. Great decision to stay here. Excellent service,good food,and happy hour with free food. Good room rate far cheaper than similar properties locally. Nice pool and rooms. Would definitely recommend for travellers. Free and plenty of space for parking. Only minutes from Carmel by car.
