Although a little pricey, we did enjoy our long weekend stay at Carmel Mission Inn. Everything was clean and the rooms were well appointed. We booked through Trip Advisor and were given four coupons for drinks at the bar and free breakfast for two, for both mornings of our stay. The food was fresh, and presented nicely, with a great...

Overall decent experience. Highlights: Room is simple and elegant with the blue lighting and aquarium look. Great detail! Reception area is well designed with well-placed fire displays. Very clean bathroom and bedroom. Free ping-pong table opened up on the last day of our stay. Conveniently near highway 1 and chain stores including gas. Disappointments: The add-on buffet breakfast was pretty... More

The room was quite adequate. The bathroom was large and nice. Good TV. Bed was okay and the pillows were not optimal but okay. People were nice and efficient. My stay included breakfast, and also they comped me some drinks. Overall, quite a good value for a very convenient location.

We've always enjoyed staying at CMI and now the exterior has been updated. The location is between two shopping centers, one next door out the back and the other across the street, complete with restaurants. The hotel is pet friendly and, best of all, there's plenty of parking unlike hotels in downtown Carmel.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel since it is pet friendly. The room was clean and a decent size. I like that the rooms have blackout curtains which is plus for me. The staff was friendly, I will definitely be returning!

In selecting a place to stay for my graduation weekend in Carmel, we had a few options, but I know we made the right choice in staying at Carmel Mission Inn. Months in advance I had called and spoken to Rana who was kind enough to answer all of my questions and then some about the hotel, amenities, things to... More

Mission Inn has well appointed cottages and rooms furnished with antiques and other original items. The facilities are clean and well maintained and the service is quite friendly. A 20 minute walk to Carmel has incredible views of the ocean.

Very relaxing hotel with comfortable beds, enjoyable pool area, good size rooms, and great service. Nice place to relax after a long day enjoying all sites and beaches that are close by. Look forward to staying here again.

My golf team stays here each year before our CCS Championship, mostly due to the very convenient location. Our most recent stay was fantastic. Sheena was great to work with, the buffet breakfast was awesome, the rooms were very clean as was the entire Inn. I would highly recommend staying there. Very convenient for numerous restaurants and shopping.

We loved the Carmel Mission Inn. The decor, landscaping, service, food, location, everything ... was great. Highly recommend this hotel as not only a good value but a beautiful place to stay too. We brought along both our dogs and found that the location made it easy to take them out for a stroll as there is a walking path... More
