The Blue Sky Lodge is very far into the Carmel Valley - about 12 miles. That being said there are some restaurants nearby. It is a basic inn, thin sheets, cramped rooms. Don't think I'd stay there again but was satisfactory for the night.

It was really quite expensive for what there was, but there weren't many options that weekend that were any cheaper. We had the two bedrooms (king + 2queens) rooms with a linked kitchenette that we didn't use, but would've been great if we had stayed longer. The main room was really cool, a nice piano/library room. Pool area also looked... More

We stayed one night in August and it was perfect for our needs. The room was clean and cozy, with a nice wooden ceiling. The reception was friendly, the shower was great. There are some bugs, but nothing scary. Personal driveway and a outdoor patio too!

The lodge has the basic amenities. TV, Bathroom. Bed and small coffee pot. It was sufficient for the most part. My husband and I would of liked a small fridge or somewhere we could store some ice. The grounds of the lodge, were beautiful! I loved the throwback architecture of the rooms with the patios, it was very private! The... More

Sliding doors didn't lock, no refrigerator, no microwave, no continental breakfast, no ground on power outlet (couldn't charge computer), and spiders & mosquitoes everywhere. I stay at so many different hotels quite a bit for my work but this is by far the worst lodging ever. Waking up with over a dozen mosquito bites is just not the best feeling.... More

The last time I stayed in Carmel Valley, it was 1960. We found this lodge serendipitously, and I felt like I was time traveling. It is a delight! Nothing has changed since the day they built it. But things are in pretty good repair. Beam ceilings. Every room has a lovely balcony overlooking the treetops. Beautiful grounds. Huge rooms, with... More

We just stayed at the Blue Sky Lodge and I loved it! The feel and vibe of the whole place is fantastic, the "game room" is lovely with a open floor plan, floor to ceiling windows, funky old wood floors, piano, books, etc. The pool area is lovely, and on a hot day it was fantastic for my kids.

The lodge consists mostly of motel style cabins scattered around a pleasantly wooded area walking distance to shops and eateries. The cabins are perfectly comfortable although the decor is a bit tired and the attached patio areas are badly in need of renovation. Beds were comfortable.

I booked this room with the intention of enjoying the large swimming pool as advertised on their website. Upon checking in we were greatly disappointed to see that the pool was drained due to a leak. When I expressed my disappointment about not being able to swim it was met with just a shrug and a "sorry." At the very... More
