It is an odd collection of rooms that make up this motel in Carmel Valley. My room was from the fifties and looked every bit of that. While the bed was comfortable, nothing else was. The TV was unplugged and couldn't be plugged in because there was no three pronged adaptor for the two prong wall socket. The two chairs... More

I spent many fun childhood Summers at Blue Sky Lodge. I thought I would take a trip back in time to some very fond memories. Yuck! Very sad to say that the place is rundown. The grounds need a gardener. The lawn is full of brown patches, the patio furniture is rusty. The cement throughout the resort (including walking paths)... More

We were here in Carmel Valley for a wedding, and went for the lowest price place with decent reviews. The Blue Sky Lodge was super-friendly though, and with the optional little kitchenette and the beautiful balcony, more than just a cheap location. The pool and hot tub were good diversions, and the pool dog was very friendly. The outside of... More

I stayed here for one night as a stop off on a road trip up highway 1 and wasn't expecting much for the price. What I found was a spacious cabin (double and single bed) with coffee making facilities, TV, nice bathroom, ample heating and peace and quiet. The kitsch 70s decor just added to the whole ambience of the... More

My husband, our two children (3 and 8) and I stayed here for four days. It was peaceful and so lovely. The beds were comfortable. We prefer a firm mattress and were very satisfied. The private deck was a plus and saw deer many times during our stay. The short walk to stores and shops is just one more reason... More

Blue Sky is not the place to stay if you are looking for great decor or easy access to downtown Carmel and Monterey. It is plain old motel basic in a lovely location. It feels secluded, among manificent Oaks and central coast vegetation, and it is next to the picturesque Carmel valley village with ecellent restaurants and wine tasting shops.... More

Great location for escaping the fog and soaking up the valley sun by the pool (with a view of the mountains). Rustic and retro, but who wants to hang out in their room when there is so much to see and do in the area!

Pleasant setting but the rooms are motel basic. You have to drive at least 15 minutes to get to Carmel or Point Lobos. Although the staff is very friendly and helpful, don't expect to be pampered in anyway.

We spent our wedding night at Blue Sky 50 years ago and while much has changed the atmosphere certainly has not. This is a charming get away where one can be above it all. However, it is not for those who may need constant care and exaggerated creature comforts.
