“Large, comfortable, nicely furnished room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This Inn was a very nice place to land en route to San Francisco. Carmel is a gorgeous little town, and the Adobe is easy walking distance (2-3 blocks) to almost anything. When we arrived, the manager was away from her desk, but there were comfy chairs and a blazing fire to welcome us. You park beneath the building for free, which turned out to be a huge asset, as there are no valets at restaurants, and little street parking to be found. Our room was almost the size of a small suite, with a lovely King-sized bed, good linens, and a couple of comfy dark brown leather chairs in front of a gas fireplace. Also a large armoire containing a large screen tv. It was VERY comfortable. And noise was no factor at all.
Our issues were that the tub was quite small, the internet did not work in our room, and the complimentary breakfast was underwhelming. It was brought to our door which was nice, but lacked utensils so we had to call up for those. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would go again.

Overall, we were pleased with the Adobe Inn. the room was huge and had a fireplace. The location was off the main street in a quiet neighborhood but easy walk to everything. Our only issue was the lack of any screens on the windows or sliding doors. The room was quite warm and we like to leave windows open to hear the ocean. Since we were on a second floor with no access from the outside to our room from the street, we felt ok leaving the sliding doors open....but would have felt better with screens to keep out any flying insects!

Adobe Inn is a dog friendly hotel. We have our dog with us. It worked out very nicely. The room is bigger than most places in the area. Our room has a fire place and a big balcony. It has a garage underground which is very convenient. Parking can be difficult along Ocean Ave. It is close to the beach and shops along Ocean Ave.
There is a dog care place (Signature Paw Spa) nearby where you can leave your dog for a few hours.
Breakfast is adequate and simple.

Staying at the Adobe Inn was a very enjoyable experience for my daughter and myself. It is a very cute place, with a southwestern feel outside and lush garden areas. The rooms are nicely appointed and the fireplaces are great. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding is quite nice. The pre ordered continental breakfast that is very nice is brought to your room at a time you schedule. Starbucks coffee is in your room. The location couldn't be better, parking garage located on the premises is included. The general manager and staff are great, very accommodating and friendly. I guess the only negative I would have is they haven't updated their televisions to the new flat screens. Other than that it was perfect and I will go back and recommend this hotel.

We had a room with an ocean view and really enjoyed the balcony that was perfect for enjoying wine outdoors nightly. The fireplace was the perfect thing to take the chill off of the nights and added a lovely ambiance to our stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to all our needs. We borrowed wine glasses, a cork screw and other utensils for our own wine and cheese evenings. We loved that the room had nice robes, towels and a mini-fridge to store wine or snacks. The beds are new with fresh, clean bedding. Both the bed pillows and mattress were top quality - this is really important to feeling like a the furnishings are selected for comfort and luxury. The room was always promptly made up by housekeeping right after we left in the morning - and we found that the location centrally located to walk anywhere we wanted to go. Delores street has many great restaurants and wine tasting rooms within a block; we loved go to wine tastings so close! This inn provides a convenient parking area under the inn and this is free. Sergio and his staff were attentive and gracious to ask us how our stay was going on a daily basis. For a small property, we felt well cared for and pampered and at a very reasonable rate, compared to other inns that are far more costly. We would definitely return to Adobe Inn for our next stay to Carmel-by-the-Sea!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a distant ocean view and are a bit quieter than the village side rooms. All...

This was probably my 5th trip to Carmel and first time staying at the Adobe Inn. We were greated at check-in by a very pleasant young lady and were given room 36. Room was nice/clean and had a great balcony which we used everyday. The fireplace was also a great touch. We only had the continental breakfast 1 out of 3 days and it was very good. It is great that they actually deliver it to your room. In past trips to Carmel, parking is really a headache. None of the other hotels I have stayed at had provisions for parking and you are pretty much on your own to find a spot. The underground garage at the Adobe is very convenient and everything is within walking distance!!

We only stayed 1 night in the Adobe Inn. We had 2 large rooms, everything there what we needed. Little breakfast comes to your room in the morning. Carmel is a wonderful little village and we would have loved to stay another day.
