“Good time in a GREAT INN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2010

we decided to go to Carmel for a mini vacation and vacation it was. We arrived in and we were welcomed with a smile and food! There was appetizers cheese, wine, chicken, salad, and cookies! Our room was a nice size for inns in carmel and the french country theme was relaxing. The new managment has really changed things for the better.

This is the second year we have gone to the Monte Verde in Carmel and we will definitly be coming back. This year we stayed is a beautifully decorated condo with an incredible ocean view. The living room has a fire place with a balcony that overlooks the ocean. The kitchen is equipped with all the modern conviences one might expect. The bedroom was good but could be better with a queen size bed instead of the standard twin. Adjoining the bedroom was the powder room with quite a large bathtub - great for soaking after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The extra special touches were breakfast in a basket delivered to our room each morning with the paper and wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening. Our dog Bear had a great time too!! Thanks so much to Steve who is the new mananger.

We visited Carmel for our one year anniversary and absolutely fell in love with this charming B&B. I found the Monte Verde on Trip Advisor and decided to book a room for one night, given its location and the pictures of the recently rennovated rooms. The new manager, Steve, learned that it was our anniversary and put us in a beautiful Ocean View suite with a full kitchen and separate living room with fireplce. It was amazing! The room was just perfect - nicely decorated and extremeley comfortable.
The hospitality at Monte Verde is outstanding. Everyone was so friendly. They gave us an excellent dinner recommendation (Andre Bouche's French Restaurant, which was wonderful), the breakfast basket delivered in the morning was great (hardboiled eggs, yogurt, warm pastries, OJ), and they were exceedingly accommodating when we awakened in the morning and decided we didn't want to leave! We stayed a second night and enjoyed it just as much as the first. They also offer complimentary wine and cheese - perfect for watching the sunset.
The hotel is right on the main street where you'll find all the restaurants and shops, and only a few blocks East of the beach.
They're even pet friendly!
We definitely recommend this B&B, and we look forward to returning in the future.

The Monte Verde Inn was the icing on the cake to our Carmel stay. The staff was amazing and helpful. The hotel and room was beautiful and extremely clean. The location was unbeatable. Going to Carmel? Stay here. When we return we are going to stay here the entire time. Thank you!!!

My husband and I stopped at Monte Verde Inn on a trip from Palm Springs to San Francisco for the holidays. We had booked through Travel Zoo at under $100. This hotel is a delightful change from slick, modern affairs, having a distinctly European ambiance. Check-in clerks were friendly and helpful. Our room was just off the lobby, but was quiet, had a fireplace with electric logs, pleasant bathroom facilities, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was brought to the room the next morning in a basket, was varied and ample. The hotel is just off Ocean and convenient to shopping and dining. The one drawback: limited off-street parking, but we had no problem. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

What can I say about this beautiful Inn that my wifeand I stayed in Decemeber Steve the manager was so very polite and the housekeeping staff went out of there way for our dogs. Whe we arrived there were pet beds and treats for our pets as well as my wife and I. In the evening there was wine and cheese in the office for all of the guest. The beds were to die for it was just like sleeping on a cloud.Thank you Monte
Verde Inn we will be back .
