The Pine Inn is a charming old hotel in the center of Carmel. It does have its quirks, but it is old and beautiful and that just added to its charm. Our room was clean had a fantastic view of the town. We were on the third floor and didn't feel the lack of an elevator was a problem. However, if stairs are a problem for you, this probably would not be a good choice. The staff was fantastic. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and helpful- making suggestions for restaurants, giving directions and even returning an earring I lost the first night there. Breakfast in the restaurant was good- both from the menu on the weekend and the buffet during the week. I was very impressed with the buffet as hotel breakfast buffets are usually unremarkable, but everything was fresh and hot and the selection was good. We only did dinner one night in the restaurant, but it was very good and we regretted not eating there again. Parking on the weekend was a little bit of a pain, but from Sunday on we had no problem finding a spot in the lot. The location is on the lower edge of the shopping/restaurants and only a few blocks from the beach. It is an easy walk down, but uphill coming back-a very refreshing early morning walk. If we return to Carmel I would not hesitate to stay at The charming Pine Inn. My only complaint (which has nothing to do with the inn) is that ALL the shops and galleries in Carmel close early (5-6 pm). There is literally nothing open except the restaurants and bars after that time. I really wanted to visit the shops and galleries but I had too many other things planned during the day.
