When we checked into the Tickle Pink Inn, like everyone else, we were thrilled! Yes, it is older. There really isn't any room service per se, and the rooms/grounds are a little smaller than they appear on the website. That being said, we were staying here for a romantic getaway and got just that! Greeted by an amazing staff, complimentary champagne, chocolates and a room with a view that we never wanted to leave! While the room was a little smaller than expected (#19), it was perfect and very clean - right down to the comfortable king sized bed! The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and we cannot imagine someone being dissatisfied with the choices. The wine and cheese reception is a must! Two different types of red, two of white, various cheeses with bread and/or crackers and fruit. A great place to meet and chat with others - or take back to your room! And the sunsets......ahhhhh. A wonderful meal can be found just steps away at the Highland Inn or a short drive into Carmel. One of the best parts is sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine (or whatever) and reading the stories written in the 'room's diary'. We felt a part of something special while there and would highly recommend it to others.
