This hotel locates just besides the highway. So you need to drive several minutes to the heart of carmel. But it is definitely not a problem. And to some extent, it is much more convenient since there are supermarket and gas station around. The hotel is very beautiful. The room is very well decorated. I enjoy the stay very much.... More

Cannot wait to stay again but next time I will be bringing my pup. Staff was excellent. Buffett in the morning was great. Very fresh with a great variety. My only complaint, if it is even a complaint, was we went out for dinner on the Saturday night we stayed there and when we came back to the hotel parking... More

We have been staying at this hotel off and on since the 1970's when the hotel opened. Through several changes it was always a little better. I think that what they are doing now has made an old location look and feel 'new'. We have enjoyed the stays there.

We love staying at this hotel. It has a lovely relaxing feel to it surrounded by lush green hills and the rooms are spacious and well maintained. The pool and jacuzzi is lovely to relax by and shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Monterrey is just a short drive and Carmel right at the doorstep. This location is superb... More

On our 3-day-drive from LA to SFO we stayed the 2nd night in Carmel. When we arrived at Rio Road we were a bit shocked about the outside look of the 'Carmel Mission Inn'. It look a bit like a Motel from the 60's. But then it turned out to be a positive surprise! Check-in was friendly and fast, got... More

My family and I recently spent three nights at the Carmel Mission Inn, our second time staying here. It's an older property, but has been nicely redecorated and is very well maintained. The hotel is conveniently located near a number of eating and shopping choices, and is mere steps away from The Barnyard shopping complex where we ate on two... More

The fact that this hotel is pet friendly may explain the strong smell of air freshener that is overwhelming in the room. Maybe there is a way to have some rooms that are not pet friendly. I have allergies and would prefer a non-pet friendly room.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our hotel. I must correct the inaccuracy of your statement however. Yes we are a pet friendly hotel but these rooms are limited and restricted to certain areas only. Thus not all rooms are pet friendly. For anyone traveling to our hotel if you suffer from any allergies please let us... More

Stayed at the hotel this past weekend. The front desk agents were a little frazzled when I was trying to check in but they were friendly. The room was nice for our one night getaway. Loved the shower head. This is a perfect hotel if you are looking to stay near Carmel and not directly downtown. It is a short... More
