I stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn the week of the monster storm that hit the California coast recently. I was supposed to leave the morning of the storm but decided that it was not a good idea. The staff was extremely accommodating in extending my stay another night and also letting my friend and I set up our computers... More

We used the special offers a couple of time- one for spring and one for the fall. The rooms are clean and roomy. The location is perfect within walking distance to Carmel Mission; five-minutes drive to Ocean Ave. Carmel downtown, adjacent to a boutique shopping mall with outstanding eateries and coffee and pastry shops. The staff are friendly. Don't miss... More

The facility itself is fine...our room was decorated in "ocean" colors which was kind of fun. Nice upgraded bathroom. Setting was convenient for a wedding we were going to in Carmel Highlands. If your destination is Carmel by the Sea, then you must drive there which then entails the task of parking ....often very challenging. Our problem was one of... More

My friends invited me to attend a function at one of the meeting rooms at Carmel Mission Inn on a Saturday evening. First I actually drove to Mission Ranch Inn which is on the other side of the Mission. My bad. The Mission Inn is located between Barnyard and Crossroad shopping centers and behind the Chevron station. The drive way... More

After driving for 4 hours the last thing we needed when we arrived was the receptionist to laugh in our faces at our Irish driving licences. I thought it was rude to laugh and then say "sorry for laughing but these would never be allowed in the States". I was a bit taken aback by her unprofessional attitude. We only... More

Rooms clean, nice beds and bathrooms, conveniently located to Carmel, Barnyard and Crossroads. Safeway market and Starbucks walking distance. Little ways from downtown Monterey, but everything is close by in that area: Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Point Lobos, etc. Stay here often, as they are one of best priced hotels to accept dogs. I'd pass on the restaurant - accept... More

This hotel was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. Going directly to their website will get you the best rates (versus hotels.com or other). You can't beat the spread of food for happy hour that is free if you purchase a drink. It has so many items (both hot and cold). Some locals were there-not just for... More

Modern, large rooms with a very friendly staff. Location was great. Heated pool was clean and the hot tub was a good size. Used both. They had a fire pit going outside of the lobby and we sat by it with our coffee. Very nice touch.
