“Charming, friendly service, and dog friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

A beautiful find in Carmel with a welcoming and attentive staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, we were pleasantly surprised by their friendliness. This place is very dog friendly and we are so grateful for this hospitality so that our dog was able to enjoy our quick family vacation along the coast. Carmel Inn is located an easy walk to all the shops in town and a downhill walk to the beach. Our room faced the street and yes you do get street noise especially with the balcony doors opened. Our room was large with a fireplace and oversized relaxing tub. Breakfast was included which had a variety of choices: eggs, potatoes, pastries and wonderful popovers. Limited hotel parking was available a short walk away so that you didn't have to move your car every two hours during the day. All in all, a fantastic find and we will definitely return here when in Carmel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street will be noisier at times.

Drinks in the courtyard, waiter a bit diffident, beautiful property environment.
Dogs welcome everywhere which is always a nice ice breaker to interesting meetings, conversations and people.
Some of the clientele swanning around is local, some a bit eccentric, all fascinating with their airs and graces.
Difficult to get dining reservations as it is so known and popular so I am unable to comment on dining service or food quality.

We had the best experience EVER at Cypress Inn,staff very friendly and helpful,they are dog friendly as well.Really enjoyed our mini vacation can't wait to go back with our little dogs.The hotel also gives you home made style brandy free, Our dogs were very comfortable and enjoyed their room as well.I believe Doris Day owns part of the hotel,she is a big dog lover.They also give you fresh fruit every morning in your room and free breakfast.Your dogs can go anywhere in the hotel with you.

We started out with one night in Carmel, and kept adding a day, for a total of five nights in this very special inn. The staff is outstanding, Randy at the front desk is exceptional, as well as Crystal at the bar. We loved the location, the courtyard, beautiful lounge, and just people watching here. It draws a diverse crowd of all ages. Though we aren't "dog" people, the pets that were there didn't bother us at all, they were actually kind of fun. This place has a lot of character & charm, but the well-trained & very attentive staff makes it shine! We will definitely be returning.

Visited The Cypress Inn in May and was met by the most cordial team of Kate & Khamis and a charming bartender. All were very hospitable, polite and above all extremely knowledgeable. As a Hotelier myself I find this type of service to be bar none and what I look for when I travel. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

We stayed at the Cypress Inn, Room 215 and we had a great time. The staff is very attentive and would do anything for us. We loved our room as it has a patio that you can see the bay. The only downside was it was a little noisy from the street in the morning. This is not the hotels fault jus the nature a staying on a street side room in a very old building that doesn't have some of the sound deadening. The bar was over the top and Crystal is the best bar tender in all of Carmel. We spent several afternoons sipping on drinks and had a great time.

Room Tip: Room 215 if you don't mind a little morning noise! great patio to enjoy a glass of wine

Randy at the front desk made us feel right at home, from the time we called for a rez, through check in and sitting down for dinner. Yes, the dog friendly dining area could be larger and some of the rooms are small, but I found that to be part of the charm. We will definitely return, as our dogs loved it.
