We were in Carmel for a wedding. Three of us stayed at Horizon Inn in an upstairs (no elevator) Premiere Ocean View room with a king size bed and a queen sofa sleeper. The room was quite nice with a gas fireplace, small refrigerator, microwave, and cups, plates, and glasses. The view from the room was wonderful. We could see the ocean and the coastline to the south.
The morning breakfast basket was a nice touch, too, with danish or bagel, orange juice, and cereal or yogurt.
There is parking available in the courtyard and also underground parking available at no charge. There is a dry cleaner next door and a self-service laundromat.
The Inn is about three blocks from the main shopping street. It’s downhill, though, and that means it’s uphill on the way back. So be aware if anyone in your party has mobility issues. If you drive downtown, parking hard to find, and offsite parking is nonexistent, so don’t expect to park close to your destination.
Hard to find anything to criticize, but I did notice the closet area (no door) had about a five feet dowel, but about half of it was not useable as a wall was too close to the dowel so that hanging clothes would hang askew and rub the wall.
We would definitely stay here again.
