“Nice Touches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Candle Light Inn was sort of an after thought when I booked it for a surprise for my man. We were pleasantly surprised at how sweet the room was and how great the location is! It's basically in the center of town, within walking distance to Carmel's finest. The room was cozy and the fireplace we had gave it an extra romantic touch. No views but it's great for the price. PIck room 20. It's the corner suite with a fireplace and kitchen. The staff was nice too.

Room Tip: Room 20. Corner suite with fireplace and kitchen!

Our room was very nice, beds were comfortable, very clean.Good quality robes were provided. The room included a mini fidge with bottled water as well as a Keurig coffee maker. We really enjoyed the outdoor fireplace! We would recommend this hotel and would love to return!

Pleasant, clean, well-maintained, quiet (save for the seagulls talking at us), reasonably-priced, an easy walk to downtown, *very* comfy beds and pillows. Friendly service, coffee and cookies at the office. Breakfast is delivered to your door in a cooler bag but we didn't have any as we ate in town. We stayed in Room 10 and had a view of the ocean and plenty of space for the 3 of us.
Very satisfied.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10, upstairs corner room. Right by stairs but never heard any noise related to th...

Great location and pleasant service! Our room was very spacious and functional.
The Feb weather limited the use of the fire pit and sitting outdoors. The grounds were well kept. We plan on staying at this location for our annual trip to Carmel.

My husband and I have visited Carmel every year for more than 20 years. Of the many motels in which we have stayed, this one has been the best. Last month we stayed in an upstairs room in the front building. The room has been renovated and is lovely. Breakfast was delivered to our door each morning and was very tasty. So glad to have parking off the street and to be within walking distance of everything. The management is very gracious and helpful. Excellent value for the money.

Room Tip: Front building, preferably upstairs. We have a view of the ocean.

Definitely enjoyed our stay at Candle Light Inn. Within walking distance of shops and restaurants, a bit further to the ocean (downhill). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Fire pit outside for sitting. Office staff very nice - in fact they had packages of cookies for us when we left!

Fireplace in the room. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Nice continental breakfast left at front door in the morning. Good coffee. We stayed in the room with three beds. Very nice for three adults. The main room stayed warm due to the fireplace. The separate room with third bed was cooler. An extra blanket was in the closet. Just know the temperature differences if you stay.
Very good value for the three of us.
