I just returned from a 3 day stay at the Carmel Country Inn. The staff and facility was perfect for our needs. We were visiting the city for the first time for an event known as Poodle Day in Carmel. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with one bath. There were three of us(my husband and I as well as my mother) and two standard poodles. We were greeted graciously by the staff (including the dogs) and shown to our suite. The room was clean, beds were comfortable (including the pillows) and everything was perfect for our stay. The room we stayed in looked a littler older than the photos on the website but it was clean and perfectly acceptable. The walk to the beach was farther than I anticipated..it took about 10 minutes to get to the heart of downtown and about 20 to get to the beach. The internet was included and very fast. Everything we needed to feel comfortable and rested for our event was present. The breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Snacks were available all day I believe..cookies, trail mix and lemonade were in the office each time we visited. The staff is very knowledgable about the surrounding areas and educated us on where to go and what to see. They were also very friendly and met our request promptly. I would stay here again without question. Hope to attend this same event next year and will stay at this INN. Very pet friendly, very quaint, very homey and friendly.
