Can't beat the location! Right opposite main shopping area. Built a long time ago before soundproofing was invented. Breakfast good for USA motel standards. Small problem with lighting attended to immediately.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms can be noisy.

We only stayed one night, but this was a great hotel with a great location. Situated right in the heart of Carmel. This is an older hotel but was clean and tidy. A very good breakfast included in the price. everything you need for a quick stopover.

Stayed there only for one night. Old hotel... Smells like old, sheets and towels were old. Thermostat didn't work. Staff in a bad mood, at check in and check out. Breakfast was ok, no big deal. Free parking. Good location.

We were looking for a quite place to just relax and enjoy Carmel after a long drive from LA. This was just the ticket. Quiet self contained cabins just off the highway and within walking distance of the town center.

The only disappointment was the bathroom, which given the size of the cabin was very cramped, but clean.

The Village Inn was a terrific hotel right in the heart of Carmel---we parked the car and walked everywhere. It was comfortable, clean and well-managed, and the breakfast was amazing---delicious eggs, fruit, pastries---a huge buffet. The hotel was an incredible deal--- very well priced. I will definitely go back at the earliest opportunity!

Well all I can say is that this motel has a great location. Circa 1954 I'll bet it was nice, however it is just a place to hang your hat in a wonderful town. We got an internet rate of $79 and that was all it was worth. Clean, but worn out!

Among the best (tourist) locations in Carmel, maybe you shouldn't expect much of a motel. The free WiFi worked well, the rooms were clean, but not great or modern. We got a cheap walk in rate. At price I would use it again, at published rate I would look elsewhere...
