“california is not only Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

very cosy atmosphere - each room different from the others, all very stylish but at the same time somehow familiar - set in the beautiful town of carmel

Perfect location. All staff members I encounter are always friendly and helpful. On-line reservation confirmation. Rooms clean; everything in good operating order. Weekday breakfast included; a nice touch!! Love the furnishings. Parking in the small lot can be a bit of a challenge...make sure you're home early, or be prepared to find street parking for the night.
Can't wait to return in 2010!!

Very friendly welcome, and pleasant service throughout stay.
Room comfortable and clean, even if rather small (though adequate for single occupant).
First-rate restaurant with nice bar. Waiting staff most welcoming and always helpful.
Good location - central, quiet and off-street car-parking.

Although we have stayed in several other top Carmel inns over the years, this was our first time at the Pine Inn and we loved it! Front desk staff was extremely helpful in suggesting a room other than the one we had reserved when we inquired about noise, and even let us view several from which we could choose. Sure the walls are thin and there is no elevator, but the rooms are beautifully outfitted and the place exudes charm. Located in the heart of Carmel, and its in-house restaurant, Il Fornaio, is a happening spot for everything from breakfast to dinner. One quibble: it would be lovely to be able to enjoy a drink by the fire in that lovely sitting room.

We were caught in the biggest rainstorm to hit the California Coast in almost 40 years. The Pine Inn was great. We had no electricity for several hours. They arranged for boxed dinners - AT NO CHARGE - and even had extra umbrellas for those willing to venture out. They went over and above in a tense situation.

A one night stopover here in such a lovely place - Carmel.

The hotel is quite plush and Jim the bellhop is lovely - chat with him!
The hotel feels a little in a time warp but it suits it's character perfectly - no real complaints there!
All very clean, nice kitted out rooms.
It is pricy but I think that is Carmel for you.

I'm a business traveller usually and friends have recommended the Pine Inn to me to stay in while playing golf at Pebble. I had a day off to get some golf in and booked a room. How was I to know a major storm was coming in? When I arrived, the ENTIRE TOWN was in the middle of a power black-out! Not just the Pine Inn - all of Carmel. The man at the front desk was incredible I think his name was Jason(?) He said if I wanted to cancel there'd be no penalty and they'd be glad to have me return when the weather was better. What a relief. One less thing to worry about. When I got home, my deposit had already been refunded! Thank you!
