We struggled to get anywhere to stay in Carmel/ Monterey due to the Monterey car show. consequently we booked with the Carmel mission inn and weren't expecting great things. There were four of us (2 adults, 2 older teens) and so we had requested a large room. The rate was extortionate for this first evening but very reasonable for our... More

We stayed one night while in transit in the area. We have checked in quite late without reservation and the hostess to convince us to stay has discounted the double queen by 20 bucks (159). The room was nice and spacious, with a big bathroom and a modern shower. All the surrounding is more like a resort than a hotel,... More

We were pleasantly surprised arriving at the Carmel Mission Inn in Carmel. It's only 5 minutes' drive from the gorgeous town of Carmel By The Sea, but is reasonably priced. There is a great shopping centre with restaurants and cafes close by for convenience. The rooms are large and clean. There is a great happy hour at night with complimentary... More

We are staying here for 2 nights. We wanted a place close to Carmel, Big Sur, etc. It has filled the bill - clean, comfortable & accessible. Check-in was easy & pleasant & our room was available even though we were early.

This hotel did the job of an overnight stay but that was all. Clean. No lift. Staff not over helpful when it came to eating at night as a family. We came across "The Elbow Room" which gave a free shuttle service from the hotel which was a fantastic. Gerry was the man. He informed us that it was not... More

I'd love to give this hotel 0 stars, since they decided to cancel my room on the evening of my reservation AFTER checking in with them twice earlier that morning. I was in Carmel for a friend's wedding. The ceremony was to start at 11am, so I swung by the Carmel Mission Inn around 10:30am to see if an early... More

We needed 3 rooms but hotel only had 2 available. It's modern outside but seems dated inside. Bathroom was really nice but a shower curtain would have been good as water went all over the floor. Price was good for one night but when we wanted to stay a 2nd night the rate went through the roof. Drinks and appetizers... More

Stayed at this hotel on a recent trip with friends to Carmel. It's not romantic, nor it is in downtown - so you do need a car to get to the nice restaurants. Other than that, it's perfectly suitable and well priced for a friends weekend getaway.

This really is a great little hotel. Just outside of the downtown area, right on the 101, this little hotel is obviously recently remodeled in a swanky, semi modern style. There's a nice cleanly designed reception area, with a modern feeling sitting area by a fire place. An open terrace in front of the reception with a gas firepit and... More

This was, without doubt, the best hotel on our drive down Highway 1 From San Francisco to Los Angeles. With a fresh, open feel the rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast excellent and the staff welcoming and friendly. The pool is an added benefit and the hotel is good value in an otherwise expensive area. What more could you... More
