My wife and I stopped over at the Horizon Inn for a couple of nights on the drive down CA1. The girl on checkin was very friendly and welcoming, and soon had us in our room. The hotel's location was great, just a couple of blocks away from Ocean Ave. We had a bit of an ocean view from the room which was clean with a super comfortable bed.
Breakfast is delivered to your room in a picnic basket which is pretty cool, and contains juice, cereals and pastries.
We had a great stay at the Horizon Inn, and if ever in Carmel again will certainly return.
