I imagine this restaurant like Clint's personality. Not pretentious And easy going. Suits and sneakers all around the place filled with couples and families. The food is wonderful and the staff attentive. Sheep galore and a setting tough to beat. Thank you for maintaining quality all these years.

I loved this hotel! It is right off Highway 1 near a small shopping mall. An easy drive to downtown Carmel or Monterey - 10-15 minutes max. The retro vibe is really cool. I loved the pool area with colorful rafts for the kids. Bright colorful rooms and very comfy beds. Huge balconies overlooking pool and large rooms great for... More

The online pictures of the Carmel Mission Inn do not do it justice. We stayed here for a night and wished we had planned to stay longer. The hotel is modern and updated. Everything about it is comfortable, clean, tasteful and lovely. The location is convenient, and close to excellent dining options, including a lovely plaza next door with options... More

Spent two weeks at this hotel whilst exploring the area around Carmel. Room was excellent even thought it overlooked the car park. The hotel is conveniently located for good places to eat out! I had one meal at the hotel and although it was OK I would recommend dining out as it was nothing special and quite pricey for what... More

This is a nice hotel for the money. Convenient to restaurants and some shopping. Nice pool area. Room was clean and decor and TV were nice. Beds were comfortable. Good free breakfast and they make eggs to order. There were servers bringing us coffee and juice and anything else we wanted. No breakfast with paper plates and cups like other... More

Carmel Mission Inn was a good location for a stop during a roadtrip in California. Clean and comfortable room, the pool was ok. The staff was friendly and service minded. Overall, a great place to stay for a night during a roadtrip.

Don't be put off by the looks or position of this hotel. It does look like a dated motel on a retail park. However, once checked in, the rooms are large and clean. The swimming pool area is excellent and busy. There is a lounge/bar where unfortunately the bar shut at 10. The breakfast was really good and not bad... More

Me and my colleague had booked a room for 2 adults and requested them to provide 2 separate beds. The front desk manager Luis was so arrogant, it was the worst experience I ever had. He charged $40 extra for 2 separate beds. Absolutely no professional approach.
