“Our Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We stayed in a suite, room 1, for our anniversary April 15th. Best stay anywhere, ever! Misty the manager knows how to give first class service! The evening innkeeper was great as well. The included breakfast was fabulous! Greek yogurt, coffee, bagels, warm quiche. Not one complaint on anything! We will never stay anywhere else ever again when visiting Carmel! Our room was beautiful and clean. First class experience all the way! Thank you Misty and staff for a great stay!

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

This was our first stay at this inn in Carmel, but it is now our residence of choice when we visit this town. The location could not have been more convenient; parking was on site; the room was wonderfully accommodating for several days' stay; the staff was excellent and the breakfasts were spectacular. We've stayed in several other places in Carmel; this is by far our favorite!

Room Tip: We were in #7 and would ask for it again!

The rooms and location were just wonderful. It was so close to Ocean Avenue and we loved walking from the Carriage House to all the shops and restaurants. The staff told us to try a couple of restaurants and we took their advice and ate at the Grill and it was wonderful.

Room Tip: Didn't use pool or fitness center,

I phoned the hotel directly to make reservations as I was booking several rooms and had a number of questions regarding the different type of rooms. I spoke with Lori who helped me book my rooms and when we checked in she happened to be working and was most pleasant in getting us checked in. During the evening happy hour she was talking to the guests as if they were in her own home. And I wasn't sure if she was having more fun talking to the guests then the guests themselves. I loved the location as it was within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Carmel. My only recommendation is to book rooms 1,2 or 3 as they are newly renovated. They may be more expensive then the other rooms but I felt they were worth it. Room 1 faces the street so for people who are light sleepers then I would suggest rooms 2 or 3. We also enjoyed the morning breakfast that was delivered to your room. It was certainly more than just a breakfast with muffins and coffee as you had a choice of yogurt, quiche, etc to fill you up till lunch and beyond.

Wow - if you are planning a trip to Carmel and you are lucky enough to book a room at the Carriage House Inn - do it. We have stayed at many hotels in Carmel but this is truly my favorite. The room we had was lovely, the bathroom could have used a bit of an update but was functional. You can not beat the location of this hotel. A short walk to many wonderful restaurants, shopping and the beach. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. The manager, Misty, was awesome, so pleasant and welcoming. We enjoyed the wine and cheese at night as well as port and cookies after dinner. The breakfast they brought to our room in the morning was very good Can not wait to book another stay here!!!

A friend referred us to this Inn and now he is our BEST friend. This was an extremely pleasent experience. Not only was our room beautiful but the service and the hospitality was outstanding. All of the staff, from the maids to the hosts made us feel as if we were "regulars" and they were always there to insure our comfort. From the evening wine and Hors d'oeuvre's to the breakfast served in our room and the host's recommendations for activities and dining, we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great but the lower level on the west side (rooms 5,6 &7) we liked the best...

This hotel is nicely located, within walking distance of Carmel's shops. Staff are, as always, very friendly and helpful, including making suggestions for restaurants and making reservations.
Our room was a nice size, and nicely furnished. The bathroom was fine, with the basin outside the bathroom ; however, as we have noted before, there are no hooks or rails at the basin to hang hand towels on. It is a silly oversight because rails and hooks are inexpensive, and by hanging towels we wouldn't have to throw the towels on the floor ( as instructed ) and have clean towels every day.
Breakfast is continental-style and brought to your room at an appointed time. Milk for cereal is brought in a glass, which results in spilling when pouring ; why not a small jug, like other hotels?
If one of us wanted tea, the hot water is brought in a huge teapot, requiring more than one teabag, and was always somewhat cooled by the time it was drunk.

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking Mission St, preferably at the ends.....less noise from neighbors.
