As soon as we entered our room, my husband and I liked what we saw. The room and bathroom were very clean and included nice amenities. Colors were bold and lighting was excellent. Robes were provided but I found them to not be fluffy so they could use an overhaul (my only complaint). My husband was happy to see there... More

We stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn along with our dog for one night. It appears all owners with dogs need to stay on the ground floor. If you don't want to be near the dogs, I would suggest asking for an upper level room. The Room we got had two Queen sized beds and a bench under the window... More

As the guest service manager at the Camel Mission Inn I would like to thank you for taking the time to review our Carmel Ca. Hotel.

I have stayed at several hotels in Carmel. The great majority require a two night stay over the weekend and our schedule allowed only one night, thus we ended up here. A Saturday night stay reserved through Expedia was $230. The room decor was an interesting edgy retro modern rendition of the sea. I would not say that it is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I would like to apologize that we were unable to provide a balcony room as requested. These rooms are in very high demand and during sold out times it is sometimes difficult to honor all requests. The accent lighting you referred to is controlled by a switch but I will... More

We booked and paid for a "deluxe" king room with balcony. Upon arrival 3:30 PM; we were told all rooms had been previously sold but we were assigned a double queen room. We checked out the room. It was dirty, the windows had stains running down them, the smoke detector "chirped" about every 20 seconds. The entrire experience SUCKED! Someone... More

During peak demand periods requests and sometimes difficult to meet. It does appear that you were not charged for a deluxe room since we were unable to honor your request. I... More

Went with my wife and our pug for a relaxing weekend in Carmel. I was surprised in a nice way by this newly decorated hotel that does not look as any other chain hotel. It is beautifully decorated, fresh and clean. The breakfastroom is stilish in a youthfull way. The room decorated with details that accentuate the Carmel feeling, the... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in September and had a very enjoyable stay. Having arrived earlier than our room was ready, we were given a map of the area and the very helpful receptionist explained about the surroundings so we went to explore. Carmel is about 1.5miles away so the hotel is in an ideal location... More

This was an amazing value for the area, and the room was spacious, comfortable, and decorated in a fun, bright decor. In fact, the king bed was amazingly comfortable! I highly recommend this hotel.
