The recent remodel looks great and really is very refreshing. The hot tub/spa was hot and the pool was heated. The shower was one of the best I have every had in a hotel. The rooms were very quiet (no noise from other rooms or hallways) and the hotel was full. The breakfast was excellent and a couple who we... More

Carmel Mission Inn is the hotel we stay at every time we stay in Carmel. It is away from the bustle of downtown; but only five minutes away. The accommodations and very nice....clean...and roomy. The hotel is "dog friendly" which is one of the primary reasons we stay there. Usually they offer a special package of $149.00 per night including... More

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and were very happy with the location. Close to Point Lobos, Elkhorn Slough, and Carmel proper. Also nearby are two malls: one with several barn-like buildings behind the hotel and one more modern across the street. The barn structure had two great re-sale shops for clothes. The modern mall had a great place... More

I was passing through, attending a Wed Rotary buffet luncheon meeting. I must say, the food was excellent! It was a combination for making tacos, so there were soft & chip tacos, ground meat & chicken, wonderful tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, a full plate of fresh melons & strawberries...a bountiful feast. Plus, Carlos, the desk concierge, was so very... More

Our family booked two rooms for a weekend trip to Carmel. Although the hotel looks a little dated on the outside, it has been redone. Rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The staff bent over backwards to make us happy. This is very convenient to restaurants and shops- you just walk out the back door and up a few... More

We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend. The breakfast brunch was wonderful, the grounds are lovely and well maintained, the rooms are very clean and the staff was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The location was great as easy access to Carmel, Monterrey and Big Sur.

Stayed here because it was the only pet friendly room we could get on such short notice- just two days before New Year's Eve. We had seen it many times- i think it was a Best Western way back when. We really liked it. They have embraced the midcentury design and redid the whole place- looks fantastic, including the rooms.... More

Spent 2 nights here for a wedding of great friends - the Mission Inn was absolutely adequate. Room was fine, bathroom fine, staff were average. Could be closer to the town, but the collection of shops and restaurants provided excellent breakfast options (try the french bakery).

We stayed here five days in December 2015 and found it to be a great place, especially for the price. Clean, quiet and a nice location convenient to the Big Sur area away from the mayhem of Monterey.
