On a whim we decided to go to Carmel/Monterey before we toured San Francisco. Carmel is just a wonderful little town and the Inn was perfect for us. SF was nice but Carmel and Big Sur were our best memories.

Been here before but was less impressed this time. Caught a great jazz group at night. Ordered apps and wine. The artichoke app is delicious although very messy. The garden burger was excellent and the fries were wonderful! The staff service was distracted and not very good. Breakfast granola and soy milk, yum! It was be lovely to see more... More

This is truly one awesome place. Not just because of the price, but because of the service and attention that is spent on making one feel comfortable and right at home. We had a spacious room, king size bed (very comfy), clean throughout, and with very minimal noise factor. Nice lounge that offers music and dance if you wish, a... More

This hotel is not in the most fashionable high rent district, but having said that they do a fine job of inn-keeping. We had a deluxe king and it was a fine experience and a good value. We had other activities and so did not use the beautiful pool or eat in the restaurant and so can't comment on that.... More

As Sacramento residents, we've been making the Carmel Mission Inn our Carmel home away from home since first finding this property more than 25 years ago. We've NEVER been disappointed or felt inclined to search for other Carmel/Monterey lodgings. Even though the property has changed ownership several times over the 25 years we've been staying there, we've always been very... More

I have family in Carmel and have stayed at this hotel in the past and it wasn't fantastic but it wasn't memorable. This time, my room was horrible! It was so noisy at night I put 3 pillows under the door to block out noise had to plug my ear with earphones and a pillow over my head. It was... More

We stopped here over night after an amazing drive down from San francisco. The inn is just off highway 1. The staff were really helpful. They organised a cab for us to visit Carmel which is just down the road but we wanted to have dinner there and didn't want to drive back. They also recommended a superb restaurant for... More

Been here twice for a week long class. It's convenient that the class was being held at this hotel, the price seems a little high for a government rate, but Carmel is rather pricey period. The rooms are comfortable with a refrigerator in the room but no microwave, so for getting food to reheat. They seem to be constantly updating... More
