OK, if you want only romance, this is not the place to go. However, my husband and I love to hike at Pt. Lobos, explore Carmel and the Carmel Valley, and visit friends. The Carmel Mission Inn is perfectly located for all of the above. Our room was large and decorated like every other room in the inn..Fine with us.... More

Stayed one night during our PCH road trip at the Carmel Mission Inn. It was exactly what we wanted for our first stop. Motor inn totally updated to 21st century. We upgraded to a room w/ a balcony overlooking the pool and mountains. First location was perfect, 5 min outside of the town but right off of Rt 1. It... More

We a family of 4 and we stayed in a double queen room and it was perfect! The beds we comfortable and the design of the room was nice, from the outside I did not expect the rooms to look as nice as they were. We had dinner in the restaurant I guess it could have been better quality but... More

I'm very happy my husband found this place! I had bad visions of a dog friendly inn but I was ecstatic that I was wrong. Love everything about this place! The room was nice and the bathroom nicer. The pool area was great and had a modern flair. Ample parking. Beautiful foliage throughout the grounds.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Carmel hotel. We are a pet friendly hotel and we offer a limited number of designated pet friendly guestrooms. For this reason we highly recommend that those traveling with pets always call the hotel direct for the availability and restrictions that apply. I’m glad you appreciate our landscaping as well as...

My mother and I recently stayed at the Mission Inn for a weekend trip. We went down to the pool and hot tub Sunday morning, and as we walked up, I found a dead rat floating in the pool. I immediately went and told the front desk. We were so disgusted we left the hotel before 9am. Another female patron... More

A rat in the pool!! After reviewing the situation with our maintenance man that furry little creature was actually a gopher. Some landscape work around the property combined with the severe California drought probably drove that hapless creature in search of water. The other day a couple of ducks landed in the pool. We try our best to restrict the... More

Room is on 4th floor, clean and spacious with a huge balcony (or should I call it patio). Decoration inside is sweet. Breakfast buffet is really good. Love the pool area, especially jacuzzi. Short drive to Carmel downtown.

We had an amazing stay at this place. Front desk staff not very friendly. It is located on the other side of the highway from Carmel, across a shopping plaza with plenty restaurants and amenities.

We stayed here one night as part of our road trip. This hotel exceeded my expectations of a 3 star hotel. It was fresh and well decorated. The pool and garden area was perfect. The open fire in the lounge area was magical and my only regret is that we didn't book for longer!!
