“Adobe Inn -Perfect location and accomodation for Carmel and Monterey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My wife ,son and I have just returned from a trip to California where we drove from LA to San Francisco and we decided to stay in Carmel for a couple of days. A friend suggested the Adobe Inn as a central place to stay in Carmel. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with everything that we needed including secure underground parking .
The Adobe Inn was in a great location for Carmels shops and also to visit Monterey and Pebble Beach .The manager Sergio was also very friendly and helpful in sorting out our booking at very short notice and advising us on where to go and eat and what to do.
If your stopping in Carmel this is a very good option.

Room Tip: Our 2 bedroom room was 31 which had excellent facilities and 2 balconies.

You really can't get better than this in Carmel. The location is just a couple blocks from the main street (Ocean) and a few more to the beach, yet it's out of the way just enough to afford quiet and peaceful stays. With its underground parking, you get the best of both worlds in that you automatically get scarce-as-hens-teeth parking spots in a secure and close location.

And the room!! My wife and I have stayed in some very memorable rooms in our world travels, but this room was right there near the top. The king-bed and pillows were fantastic, we had a working fireplace (gas, not logs, which was good since my wife has Asthma), very comfortable seating area, and an outside porch. I had initially thought that our room's location near the pool was going to be intrusive, but that was NOT the case at all. Our "included" breakfast was served to our room (you place your order the night before), so we essentially had a "room service" start to our day included with the price. Very thoughtful.

Our family of 5 ( incl 2 teens & a 9 yr old), enjoyed a wonderful stay at this beautifully quaint and central hotel. Staff were all very friendly and we received a very warm welcome on arrival with cookies and chocolates in our room! We loved the Continental breakfast delivered to our room each morning and it was always fresh, tasty and absolutely adequate. It was so lovely to be able to sit and eat it in our pj's! We had a 2 roomed suite and the beds were very comfy, the Wifi worked perfectly and we had plenty of space. My only complaint was that the shower in one of the bathrooms wasn't working very well. We loved the centrality of this hotel to shops, galleries and the fantastic restaurants of Carmel. There isn't a bar or restaurant on site, however there is no shortage of great bars and restaurants a short walk away so it didnt matter to us. We would return to the Adobe Inn if we are lucky enough to return to beautiful Carmel.

Room Tip: The 2 bed suite is the one to go for.

The hotel's best feature is the location, right in the middle of Carmel-by-the-Sea, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, wine bars, and all kinds of shops. Our king room was large and the fireplace worked well, but we didn't use the balcony overlooking the street and construction.

Although the linens and amenities were nice, the bath was dated and faucets dripped. 'Twas nice to have the continental breakfast delivered to the room. It would have been better had they served earlier: having to wait until 8:30 for the first service cut into our active days.

The below-hotel free parking was a plus.

Room Tip: Higher and in the back would be better than facing the street, both for passersby and across-the-str...

Very spacious room, in well-located hotel. My room was an upper corner room, with good views towards the sea (though trees prevented much view of the sea itelf).

Carmel is a charming town and a good place to stop off if you're doing the PCH route. The Adobe Inn is very close to the centre.

The underground car park is a good bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper corner room.

Adobe Inn is one of the best properties I have stayed in; located about one third mile from the ocean this property provided great friendly service at a very affordable rate. We felt very welcomed by property manager and staff.

We are long time Carmel visitors and found the Adobe Inn to be the best overall. The room was unusually large by Carmel standards with long balcony on 2 sides with view of the ocean. The rooms were recently renovated, clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast was delivered at the door each morning and it was more than adequate with a variety of items. The hotel has underground parking with elevator which is not typical for Carmel hotels and a blessing when traveling "heavy" as we do. The staff were especially professional and went out of their way to make our stay the best possible and they were successful. The hotel's location couldn't be any better with excellent restaurants, shops and galleries only one block away and the beach within easy walk. I highly recommend this hotel and already have plans to return in September.
