We had a fantastic stay. The rooms were spacious & the bathrooms had everything we needed. The outdoor pool area was relaxing & our room looked into the pool. The friendly service was next to none. We thoroughly recommend this motel.

We were so pleased with our stay here. Having stayed in Carmel-by-the-Sea before, I wasn't sure what to expect of this Carmel Valley inn, but it was wonderful (and for a much more reasonable price than if we'd stayed by the sea). The room was clean, modern and spacious. The grounds are beautifully kept, including the pool (although we didn't... More

Nice, personal welcome. Modern, clean rooms. Comfortable decoration and furniture. Good bed, bathroom, wifi and pool. Great view from the well heated pool. Hotel well located with at least two good eating options within minutes of the hotel.

This place has great service but is a bit expensive for the hotel room size and ambiance. The problem with the Monterey Bay area is a lot of hotels require 2-3 night minimum so this was our only choice. For the over 200$ I paid, I have had amazing rooms. If you have no other choice, it is nice and... More

I never want to write a negative review, especially for a place that seems to try hard. Our experience turned sour due to the summer heat and communication errors of some sort between the front desk and the manager. We arrived very early and the room was ready for us. A great start! We had upgraded to a King fireplace... More

We had a lovely time, originally booked four nights, We loved the place hence booked an additional 3 nights. We think it's a perfect location for exploring Carmel, Monteray and Big Sur areas, because you can spend time relaxing in the warm sunshine 25c by the pool if you want to, and these places are just a short drive down...

Most stayed in the Valley at The Hidden Valley Inn and the Acacia lodge. We all enjoyed the lodging, the fresh waffles at breakfast, the accomadating staff and the friendly atmosphere. Thank you for playing a part... More

The place as a whole is fine. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast is basic, offering cereals and a little fruit, and waffles, whcih I enjoyed very much. The grounds need improvement. Book your room directly with the inn. We got a very good rate for a 2 night stay Monday through Thursday. There are two inns. We... More

Hello,  Our stay at the Inn was very pleasant. Everyone was very courteous. They allowed us to check in early and upgraded our room at no extra charge. The place is well kept. We defenatly will consider staying there again if we visit the area next time. NN

We stayed at the Country Garden Inns on our road trip from SF to LA. We had a wonderful time here! The rooms were very nice and comfortable, the beds were good, clean, the internet-connection was good. We really loved it here! The staff is solo friendly, especially this man.. and think his name was Dirk, at the breakfast -... More
