My sister got married in Carmel and this was the nearest hotel to the Church so our family stayed here. The rooms are clean, a bit bigger than average and are very well-kept. The man who answered our questions at the reception was very kind and helpful even late at night. There was a Safeway conveniently located right across the... More

We don't really want to tell you about this great little place... but it's a secret that has to be told. The rooms were fresh and modern. The pool and hot tub were great. They are pet friendly and kid friendly (depending on which you decide to bring), but it's romantic enough to come with out the kids. It is... More

Our stay of 3 nights was an absolute pleasure. First, we unexpectedly arrived a day early and not only did they accommodate us, but let us check in early. The woman who checked us in was the same one I spoke with on the phone to ask if they could take us an extra day, and she was very friendly... More

If I had not read that on another Tripadvisor review I might've missed it! While not in the charming center of Carmel, this place is well-located to most of the tourists sites. It also runs more promotions than pretty much any hotel I have ever seen! So be sure to check around a bit before your book here: you should... More

The service is very good and the staff were very attentive and helpful. The room we stayed was very large and tastefully decorated. The location is very good, just minutes from downtown Carmel. Good parking. I strongly recommend.

Pool area very nice, restaurant/bar with live music very comfortable and inviting, lobby nice to hang out and read in, staff very courteous, prices... More

I stayed at Carmel Mission in for 8 nights. 4/16 to 4/23. The hotel is conveniently located right off Highway 1 and it takes only about 4 minutes to drive to the charming city of Carmel. The hotel is dog friendly and I stayed in a bottom level room right next to the pool. The pool is heated to about... More

When we got there, we didn't know what to expect as from the outside it looked average at best. We checked in to very helpful staff, and got an upgrade. We were directed round to the room. It was lovely, good size modern interior. Lovely bathroom with separate shower, and a good size bed. What more can we ask for.... More

We stayed at this hotel to be close to Monterey Bay Aquarium. We stayed with 3 adults and 3 young kids in one room and the beds were still comfortable and the space was still not crowded. Friendly front desk, cozy outdoor gathering spot with fire pit. It had a small pool but we didn't have the chance to use... More
