“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Located on a quiet residential street a short walk to either the cypress-edged ocean or the downtown shops and restaurants, this inn was a peaceful place to stay. A friend and I needed a two-bed room and unfortunately, the more reasonably priced one was not available. Instead, we shared the pricier Cypress room with the loft. I enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs retreat and it's dormer window offering a distant view of the Pacific, though not the steep staircase access. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was fine...nothing spectacular, but it always included homemade granola and a hot egg dish of some kind...and we appreciated the afternoon refreshments as well. I would stay here again!

The staff was welcoming and helpful getting around places in Carmel. The neighborhood is very safe and clean. The beach is at 5 minutes by foot. There are a few goods restaurants nearby. Room was very nice, clean and quiet. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The best we had in a bed and breakfast. We recommend the Green Lantern to anyone!

Stayed here for our anniversary. Chose third floor walk-up room with fire place...smart move. Clean, quite and easy check-in. Very pleasant front desk clerk. Close to Ocean Ave and the beach. In making reservations ask for price first and ask if they discount for AAA. A little pricey but worth it.

Room Tip: They have rooms with fireplaces at extra cost.

My Husband and I stayed here the week before Thanksgiving on our Honeymoon as a last minute decision. We were in Southern California and driving up the coast and wanted to stop for a few days in the Carmel area. We found through Trip Advisor an awesome room rate deal and booked it for the next day for two nights! The staff are incredibly nice and helpful. We arrived late in the evening and they were very accomodating! Parking was easy right out from of the inn. Complementary breakfast included a warm quiche, fruit, waffles, hot tea, coffee, cocoa, etc. The rooms look a little dated (like cute grandmother's house style), but very clean and cozy. It was very cold when we stayed here. The heater in the room was mounted to the wall and set to come on/off through out the night. Small heater, but very powerful and warm! We loved staying here, and would definitely come back again soon! Easy to find, great location, 1 block from the main drag. 4 Blocks from the beach, and less than 20 mins to Monterey!

Charming and well located B & B within easy walking distance of Ocean Avenue shopping and Carmel beach. Pretty outside but awful in the rooms which need serious renovation. I did not get value for my money in terms of the room accommodation (through Expedia, $152.23 per night + $17.23 in taxes). In "Walnut", there was no window I could open and it got very stuffy during the day during Thanksgiving week. A fan was provided but it was inadequate to cool off the room during the daytime when the sun was out. The showerhead was so low that at 5'9" I had to bend down to get under it. No safety bars were installed in the shower, either. The bathroom cabinet was scraped and dented and the trim around it needed to be caulked.

The outside covered area for ice contained an old and dirty microwave. Another guest reported a black widow web inside the area above the doorframe.

A very nice breakfast is provided with your rate and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

This was my second visit but I will not return. The hotel is getting too run down and the lack of A/C (even in Carmel!) is a problem.

Room Tip: Do not select Walnut. No windows to open and directly backs to kitchen of reception area. Some nois...

Romantic little cottages in quiet road in Carmel. Clean cute rooms (distributed in different cottages) very friendly staff. Nice snacks for the afternoon tea. Healthy and good breakfast (fresh fruits, different kind of breads, nice choice of teas), some cheese would have been nice. Only a few blocks from the beach and the village center, everything can be reached by foot.

My husband and I stayed for one night whilst traveling down Hwy 1 to LA. We stayed in the Pine room a small bedroom and bathroom within a larger cottage building. The decor is a little dated but everything was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable.
The B&B is close to the beach and we had a lovely walk around the area taking in the quirky and beautiful houses in Carmel. The B&B puts on tasty afternoon snacks and there is always tea and coffee facilities available. We also loved the breakfast, a good selection of cereal, fruit, toast, bagels, make you own waffles etc.
The staff were friendly and helpful. I wold love to go back to Carmel and would book to stay here again.
