“Nice Location, Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This place is on Ocean Avenue and about 3 or 4 blocks from Carmel Beach. (So close that it was easy to walk to the beach to see the sunset.) The rooms were large with a fireplace. It was so convenient to all the shops and restaurants. Also the front desk provides a map for some pleasant walks. The breakfast was ok but convenient. The only bad part is that our room was near Ocean Avenue and sometimes noisy at night otherwise for a room at a prime location, this hotel was a great value!

We had a king room at the Lobos Lodge, with a sitting area and fireplace, small dining table and chairs, and a large bathroom. We were very pleased with the room, it was modern and clean, and overall the hotel was well located in Carmel - within a 5 minute walk of most restaurants and the beach. The breakfast was excellent - delivered to our door at the requested time in the morning, the tray had plates with danishes, fruit cups and juice, complete with a little flower garnish. Like other reviewers, our only complaint is the wi-fi - it was very slow and kept dropping the signal. Other than that, we were very happy with the Lobos Lodge and would stay there again.

i have only one complaint about this otherwise very nice hotel and that is their wifi internet. it breaks down frequently and, when it's up, it is excruciatingly slow. what's worse is the rude attitude of the desk lady who told me that "everybody else was able to use it." i have had to go to the coffee shop across the street and, even, log on the normany inn's wifi in order to send this review. their wifi is absolutely terrible.

We discovered this place by coincidence during our trip through California. The rooms are nice, spacious, and clean, the staff is very friendly and ready to help. The location is very convienient, as you can access restaurants and beach by foot.

We really had a nice time and I would recommend it to anyone visiting this little piece of Paradise on Earth.

The only thing wrong with my stay here, is that it was not long enough! What a great find in Carmel. Had a king room, with a fireplace and small sitting area.Good size bathroom. Also had a mini fridge for your drinks (wine) or snacks, and a table with 2 chairs for in room dining.
Great location for the area.
Friendly staff, loaned me a cork screw and wine glasses for the room.
Would go back again for sure!

Greeted by Mark, what an excellent start. Coffee and cookie in reception nice after a long drive from LA. Room was cosy and comfortable and the fire was very welcome. Two step for our hotel and we were in the prestigious Ocean St. 5 mins down the street we were at the sea. Places to eat, quick, reasonably and good service was Hogs Breathe and Jack London's. Big Sur. is right on your doorsteps so explore knowing you have a nice place to rest your head upon your return.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get a room on the street side

We had to cut our vacation short due to Hurricane Sandy, so we were only there for one night, but what a great night it was. Walked to the beach for a sunset and had dinner at a casual restaurant, Flanagan's pub, which was very good. The hotel is in walking distance of many fine and casual restaurants. It is also close to most of the state parks and Big Sur. One day we will return to finish our much anticipated vacation and request room 22. Thank you Los Lobos for the great customer service!!

Room Tip: Room 22 was just PERFECT
