“Can't Beat the View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We hadn't stayed at the TallyHo Inn for many years and were delighted with the changes. We always knew the location couldn't be equaled since it is about half way between shopping and the beach. It is slightly off the main street, but still close enough to walk everywhere!!!! The room we stayed in was large, included a sofa, a table and chairs, a huge TV over the fireplace, and high ceilings. The most fantastic part was the triple door which opened completely to a veranda with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The bathroom was elegantly appointed with a huge shower, spa tub, TV and a heated floor. Wow! For a special weekend, I would highly recommend treating yourself to the TallyHo Inn!

My husband and I stayed at the TALLY HO last April for our eighth anniversary after driving up the magnificent coast through Big Sur and absolutely loved our road trip from Santa Barbara. We especially enjoyed how spacious our room was and that it had a view over Carmel with a private patio. The customer service was so personable, we really enjoyed talking with Ned about the towns many restaurants, he was very informative and helpful with a great sense of humor. All the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and well appointed and a yummy breakfast was included. The location was also great since the inn was right downtown and a short walk to the beautiful white sand beach.
We are so glad that we took the recommendation from our friend.... Can't wait to come back again... Hope to see you all soon!

Room Tip: I bet all the rooms are great but room # 9 was beautiful...

We splurged a bit more than we wanted to and didn't look back: this was our wedding suite and we had a huge room with lovely decorations, a private patio and a breathtaking view of the Pacific.

The service was stellar - the front desk was super responsive to any needs we had (lugging our bags if needed, among other things).

Totally worth the splurge!!

We followed our GPS to Tally Ho and I will be always grateful to that device! What a delightful small hotel! I was so excited when we first walked in and saw a fire happily burning in the courtyard, a magnificent view, brightly coloured potted plants and a warm greeting. We were shown two rooms both gorgeous we chose the larger as we were travelling with a friend. Very reasonably priced and that included a delicious breakfast.
Truly this place made me feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman! I wish we could have have longer than one night and my advice to you would be STAY HERE you'll love it!

We enjoyed an anniversary stay at the Tally Ho. Having sparkling wine on the balcony of our room was just the beginning of a wonderful stay at the Tally Ho. The staff was friendly and provided great recommendations for dinner and hiking the next day. In room soaking tub for two really was large enough for two.
It's very convenient location and to have the off street parking is a real plus. Able to walk to all the restaurants and the beach. We'll be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 106 and would ask for it, when we return, although we did not see the other rooms.

We recently stayed at the Tally Ho Inn while on a 3 week tour of California. We had room 101 which was more like a suite with large king bedroom, lounge with sofa bed and a huge bathroom. Also it was wheelchair accessible which we needed. However although everything was great, the most outstanding thing was how helpful the staff were when I inadvertently left some of my clothes behind in a drawer. They packaged them up and sent them on to me so they arrived at our hotel in Las Vegas before we left the USA. So a big thank you to the staff for going above and beyond, and if you want a great hotel in Carmel you really couldn't do better.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Tally Ho Inn. We've stayed there several times over the past few years. Since we booked at the last minute, the Superior King room (with the huge jacuzzi tub) we usually reserve was booked so we spent a little more for the Deluxe King (smaller tub). It was upstairs with a great ocean view. Unfortunately, we didn't feel it was worth the additional cost. Mold in the shower, single paned windows allowing in the TV noise from our neighbors, no room darkening curtains, and the squeaky bathroom door (which we requested to be fixed but was not) were just some of the detractors. With all that said, the location can't be beat and the ladies at the front desk were very helpful. We would still return but only to stay in the newer rooms.

Room Tip: Newer Superior Kings are the best!
