Me and my sister stayed at Tickle Pink Inn for 2 nights in early September as part of a 12-day, California road trip. The location of the hotel was superb, the suite was spacious and the view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. Very convenient for Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey and Route 1 with all the spectacular scenery the coast has to offer. The absolute highlight for me was arriving late afternoon and seeing two pods of humpback whales (about 40-50 in total) about a mile out at sea and right in front of us. Absolutely awe-inspiring and something I'll never forget. If you want a peaceful location where you can fall asleep listening to the sound of the ocean, this is the place for you.
