My wife and I went to Carmel for a few days to celebrate my birthday. We chose the Country Inn because of their dog friendly advertising. We were not disappointed. We had a late arrival time and they were waiting for us. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. Our room was much bigger than I expected and the bath has both a shower and a spa tub. The breakfast was very good with quiche, fruit, oatmeal, rolls and pastries, coffee and juice. They have a huge list of older and current releases of movie DVD's that you can watch free of charge in your room. The wifi is free and very fast (or at least faster than what I have at home). I had to laugh at the rating that says, "kids are not welcome." and at the risk of sounding mean, that was a plus for me. This will most certainly be our first choice when staying in the Carmel/Monterey area.
