We stayed at the Candlelight Inn for three nights in June. The staff were very friendly at check-in and provided us with some restaurant suggestions, maps etc. We were very happy with the size of the room, it was larger than most of the places we stayed during our trip, with a king size bed, desk area, and plenty of space for luggage. The room and bathroom were both finished to a high standard. The only minor criticisms about the room would be the lack of mirrors, the only one was in the bathroom, which made getting ready a little tricky when the other person was using the bathroom, and the room would have benefited from some brighter or additional lighting. The main window in the room overlooked the hallway and car park so for privacy we kept it shut which meant the room was quite dark and the lighting wasn't sufficient.
Breakfast is left outside your room in a small cool bag, if you hand a breakfast request to reception the night before, and consists of cereal, fruit, pasteries, juice etc. It's a nice idea but to be honest it wasn't very good quality which is a shame. I'm of the opinion that if you are going to offer your guests a breakfast, even if it is just a continental breakfast, it should be done properly or not at all. I would recommend going out for breakfast instead.
This hotel is in a perfect location for exploring downtown Carmel and heading out into Carmel Valley for wine tasting. There are a number of restaurants nearby and many offer a discount for Candlelight Inn guests if you show your key- the receptionists will provide you with a list at check-in.
