The Normandy Inn is quaint and in a great location. We only stayed one night, but found it to be very charming and comfortable. The location is perfect. You can easily walk to the beach as well as all the shops and restaurants.
The only things I found to be a turn off were, there are signs everywhere saying no dogs. I realize they do not allow pets but why do they need signs on every gate and in the office saying no dogs? Carmel is very dog friendly and although I respect their right to not allow pets at their Inn, I think it comes across as very cold and a little rude.
Next was a tip cup in the breakfast room. I have worked in the service industry for 12 years and I understand wanting to be tipped. However, this is not a full service restaurant. In fact, it's all self service. Seeing a tip cup on the counter seemed tacky and desperate like they aren't paying their staff enough.
Overall, our brief stay was comfortable and affordable!
