5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice. They offer a happy hour with a really good selection of snacks! The hotel is within a few minutes of the downtown area where you'll find great shops and restaurants (not to mention the restaurants and shops directly behind the property). If you're traveling down the PCH, I would... More

We just spent two nights at the Carmel Mission Inn in on our way down the coast from San Francisco to San Diego. It's a perfect stop off point for exploring nearby Monterey as well as driving the Bug Sur. Overall, the hotel was of a good standard with a large double family room and huge bathroom (which we found... More

This is a very nice, well maintained hotel. The staff is friendly. The hotel is very close to Carmel, Carmel Valley and not far from Monterey. It in located across the street from a very nice shopping center. The pool and hot tub and very nice and open until 11:00pm. We would stay here again

We stayed here for a second time this summer (2015) it is a really nice location but the facilities and location are not quite to the level that the room prices are. This coupled with a small bar that was full of a high school reunion crowd encouraged us to go out for dinner and a drink. The hotel is... More

We stayed here for our 30th Anniversary with our Doberman. We were checked in within minutes and directed to our room. The room was very clean and well decorated. I believe it was one of the smaller of the rooms by looking at the others, but believe that is because we had a dog so wasn't as "plush" as the... More

Thank you for the many kind words written about the Carmel Mission Inn. We are very proud of our hard-working, dedicated staff and we are grateful for your mentioning them.

My family and i love staying at this beautiful hotel every year. They have a great pool, beautiful rooms, fantastic service, air conditioning/heat (most hotels in Carmel do not), great parking, great wifi and a great restaurant! Centrally located to Carmel Beach and Carmel Valley.

The location was very convenient to both Carmel and Monterey. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. The room was comfortable and clean with a cheery ambiance. The amenities were solid as well.... Only complaint was all of the kids in the bar area. That was more than a bit strange. Just trying to have a nice glass of wine before... More

To be fair, it's not a bad hotel, it just that for the price (US $3590 for 3 nights) I was waiting something better, at least a breakfast. Pros: Close to almost everything at Carmel Clean Quiet Pool Cons: Old furniture Some of the rooms have motor hotel decor over their beds Too expensive (I guess it was because of... More

Booked over the phone, was told it was in the center of town. It is behind a huge gas station on the main road. When I tried to cancel was then informed of their cancelation policy. A real tourist trap, look elsewhere to stay, you can't fix a bad location. Places like this take the fun out of your vacation.

In response to this reviewer I would just like to take a moment to defend the honesty and integrity of our staff. It is true that we are 1.1 miles from the city center of Carmel by the Sea. What I take offense with here is that our reservation staff would ever tell a guest we are in the center... More
