I have been going to Carmel for about 30 years. In the past I have mostly stayed at B&Bs located within the streets of Carmel. Some have been excellent and more than a few have forgotten why they were rated so high in the past. More than 25 years ago I stayed at what was then a Holiday Inn as every B&B was totally booked. At that time it was a typical Holiday Inn. About ten years ago I went to Carmel and found that most older accommodations were booked. Almost drove out of town and remembered the location of that old Holiday Inn and went there. What a refreshing change. It's not a Holiday Inn any more. It's a real gem just on the border outside of Carmel. The pancakes were fabulous, light and fluffy and they had blueberries in them. I have to admit to an addiction to blueberry pancakes, especially the way I make them with yeast and then they rise, all light and fluffy. We were staying in San Francisco and decided to try the Carmel Mission Inn again because we wanted to visit the Los Lobos Preserve. We were still happy to make that choice as it is very close to Los Lobos and we will stay there again when we go up again to image some places along Highway One. For breakfast we again ordered blueberry pancakes and Terri in the dining room made our breakfast quite enjoyable and we felt very welcome. We highly recommend the Carmel Mission Inn and will stay there again when we go back up finish our imaging of the Bixby Bridge and few more spots in Los Lobos Preserve,
