My husband and I stayed one night. We stayed due a discount site and didn't know what to expect with the iffy reviews. The lobby area is very quaint and relaxing and the front desk service was good. Upon walking to the room though you had to step around huge piles of wrecking materials. The room itself was very nice... More

I made a reservation for two nights after reading the reviews, which painted a picture of a calm and relaxing retreat in the Carmel Valley. On arrival, the desk staff checked with another person to make sure the room was OK and sent me back to the room. The balcony access to the room was piled high with boards that... More

My wife and I were due to stay for two nights as part of our trip down the coast. When we checked in on the first night the hotel only had us down for a one night stay. We spent a while trying to contact the travel company in the UK so that they could sort things out but the... More

CVL Devotees- We have stayed here many times, but over Labor Day (one night) will be the last. CVL was taken over by a new owner and everything has gone downhill... Flowers were dying, tablecloths and the carpet at breakfast were dirty, and there was no wood/no smores in our room as before. BUT THE ABSOLUTE WORST was seeing the... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel given the mixed reviews, but we had a lovely stay. The pool was warm, the hot tub was nice and open late so long as guests weren't noisy. The location was amazing. We could see the Milky Way and felt peacefully away from all the city cares, but were... More

Stayed here a wedding weekend in which our family rented out almost the entire lodge. The lodge was so accommodating to our group. The pool area was great. They allowed us to set up a family bbq there without any issues. The front desk was so helpful and sweet. They went out of their way on multiple occasions to make... More

We stayed there for two nights. The food was appalling, the noise at night was ridiculous. I found the place pretentious and a total rip off! The only thing going for it was the view from our suite. The only highlight of the whole thing was the Honey Course, which was fantastic and educational. The kids loved it. We went... More

We loved our visit here last August. So peaceful and friendly. The room was nice and the kids really enjoyed the fireplace and making s'mores! At the front office they had movies you can barrow to watch in your room. Pool was a little chilly but the Breakfast buffet made it all worth while.

A great place to unwind & relax. Rooms comfortable & clean. Pool area very nice. Staff warm & welcoming with homemade samples of toffee in lobby. Carmel Valley is nice as it is usually out of the coastal fog & warm & sunny. Our room (12) was great location by pool with coffee maker, microwave & small fridge. Breakfast included... More

We had a comfortable stay at the Carmel Valley Lodge. The room wasn't very big but adequate for two of us. We had an excellent breakfast the next morning in their conference center, including waffles and fresh fruit. It was within walking distance of several wine tasting rooms and restaurants.
