First time stay last August for four nights prior to traveling to Napa. Tickle Pink exceeded expectations. Great value for the money compared to other alternatives. Ocean views were breathtaking! We enjoyed the wine tastings and complementary breakfasts. Great jumping off spot for Big Sur excursions and plenty of good hiking options close by. We enjoyed discovering Carmel and Pacific Grove and the the many fine restaurant choices in the area. We plan to return next year but will book in advance to insure getting the preferred suites with the better views. For golfers visiting Carmel to play Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay, Shpyglass etc, you might want to try Pacific Grove Golf Course for a fine test of golf at a much more reasonable price. Thanks to all for the great reviews that helped us find this Carmel treasure. We recommend the Tickle Pink Inn highly.
