My wife and I stated at the Carmel Mission Inn just recently (August 2007) and we were pleased with the location. It is strategically located and great for getting around. Another great aspect of the motel is that it is PET FRIENDLY. Big plus for them. Having said that, we were totally underwhelmed by the accomodations based on the price.... More

My girlfriends and I decided to spend a few days relaxing ,shopping and eating our way through Carmel, Pacific Grove and Monterey. It had been years since we had stayed at the Carmel Mission and we always had mixed feelings about it. But ,we thought we would give it a try and we are happy we did. We had two... More

Anyone who gives this hotel more than 1 needs professional help. Room was in need of renovation, seperate block to main hotel with no working security to prevent unauthorized access. Hotel Bar was closed at 8:15pm. Apart from easy access to Carmel this place has no redeeming features. One fellow Brit had payed $284/night and wasn't happy at all. Sleepless... More

We stayed at the BW because many of the places in Carmel are B&Bs and we find those accomodations too small. The room we had was a good size, it was conveniently located only a mile or so from town and right across from a shopping center with nice shops, restaurants and a Safeway. As I usually find with BWs,... More

We were quite impressed with this hotel. Check in was very easy, nice staff. We were relieved that there was an elevator to the 3rd floor, and that there was airconditioning in the property. Its a little way out of town, but very close to the highway and the mission, so you could stop in before leaving town. Decent parking.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Carmel Mission Inn and it was better than expected. The front desk staff are very friendly and check-in was a breeze. I initially booked thru the BW site, and wanted to add a day so I called the hotel directly - they gave me the same rate and upgraded us to a deluxe room... More

We stayed here while travelling from LA to San Francisco. Carmel and Monterrey were meant to break the trip but loved both and will return. Carmel Mission Inn was a good base to tour from and easily found off Highway 1. Overall although the hotel was clean and comfortable I don't think it fully justifies its rating. Room was small...

I stayed here for a one-night business trip in June. Although I certianly wouldn't call it a "dream property", it is not as bad as some of the reviews suggest. If you're looking for 'the vacation of a lifetime' or a 'romantic getaway', this is NOT your place. But for a quick business trip or a family weekend on the... More

After a grulling drive up from LA,stayed at Mission Inn for 3 nights,and it was superb. Staff were helpful,and Carmel centre only 5 minutes by car. This is an amazing area of America,so much to see and do. We had one afternoon by the pool, which was totally relaxing and calm. We would stay here again.

The price was right -- $129 per night for a king bed (June 07). This is an older hotel that has had some work done. For instance, the bathroom was clean and nicely redone, if on the small side... but the carpet in the room was worn, the baseboard under the A/C unit was sticking out, a trim piece of... More
