Even if you are not traveling with your pet, you will like this place because it is quiet, comfortable and close to downtown. It is walking distance to the beach.
We loved the place because they made our dogs feel really welcome. They even have a hose and towels to rinse your dogs after they have been to the beach! Carmel is a wonderful place to vacation with your pet because there are so many off leash parks, state parks and, of course, the beach. Many of the restaurants have outdoor seating that allows pets, but the inn will give you a list of recommended pet sitters who will come and watch your dog(s) in your room for you while you dine out alone! This gave us the best of both worlds - we could take our dogs with us on vacation but had the freedom to go out without them.
