“Carmel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I love this hotel not only because of the great location but the staff is excellent . My husband and I stay here at least once a year in the fall. The accommodations I think are very nice for a hotel that was originally built in the 1920's. Of course it has been remodeled since then, but you still have that sense of history about you. The hotel is dog friendly but if you don't bring your dog along there is usually one that will enjoy some extra attention from a new friend. I really enjoy Terry's for breakfast and then an evening glass of wine or afternoon tea in the beautiful living room across from the front desk. All in all this hotel is gem in the middle of downtown Carmel!

This gem in Carmel can give you the true feel of the Carmel life. Carmel is a very dog friendly city and Cypress Inn allows dogs in the rooms and have a dog friendly happy hour at the bar Terry's. Price can be steep on important weekends but the rooms are a comfortable size.

We arrived in the evening and got a warm welcome. Very friendly front office at all times. We were four people and probably got one of the smallest and not a good situated room. It was no 107 and was just on top of the stairs with a tiny bathroom and a wall as view. Nevertheless the hotel has charm and soul. The gym is tiny but I could do what I came there for. The hotel has a lot of dogs and I like dogs, but it is a bit too much when you can't get to your room because six dogowners and their dogs are blocking the way and do not make a move to let you through.... The breakfast was a disappointment. Very bad selection of food, bread etc. and very much unhealthy stuff. I guess that's just American. The hotel is perfectly located to everything Carmel has to offer.

As soon as I walked into the lobby I fell in love with the place. They had a lot of movie memorabilia about the lobby and as you walked through the hallway. Being there gave me nostalgia and I felt at peace immediately. Carmel is a beautiful town with beautiful little shops and art galleries so this hotel fit perfectly in this town. It's very quiet and there's no hustle and bustle. I loved the room we had and when we got there we immediately got upgraded to a bigger luxury room. It had a big jacuzzi and a really nice ceiling fan. The bed was so comfortable too! Every time I go back to Carmel I will always stay at the Cypress Inn.

Room Tip: Please book way in advance. They didn't have any rooms available so I went in the middle of the...

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.
