“Good value, tricky to find.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Make a U turn at the first light as you travel east on Rio Road from Route 1.
About 2 miles from downtown Ocean Ave, so you won't walk it. Good size room, clean, and well appointed. WiFi works well. A good buffet breakfast is offered for an additional $20 for the two of us. We had grown accustomed to at least a continental breakfast with the price of the room on our other stops during our trip. The room was quiet and we slept well. We would stay here again.

Stayed for two nights as part of a fly drive holiday. Hotel easy to find with decent sized well appointed rooms. Complimentary continental breakfast included in our booking fee, but cooked breakfast readily accessible at no extra cost to us. Comfortable bed and very clean and bright. Room and bathroom looked recently decorated. Unfortunately the pool was out of order which was one reason we had chosen this hotel. The village shopping center was just behind the hotel, easily accessible and within walking distance, so no need to drive. Free parking available on site.

This hotel represents excellent value in Carmel. The bathroom looked recently renovated. It was nice and clean. The bed was super comfortable and relaxing. The location is good if you are travelling by car. Overall we were very satisfied with our 2 night say at the Mission Inn.

We spent the night after exploring Point Lobos and 17 mile drive. Great property located close to several shops, and restaurants, although not close to beach and downton. Bathrooms were updated, and room was nice. The pillow though were all too tall, which were uncomfortable for a side sleeper, recommend that you check it before going to bed. They offer a discount if you sign up for breakfast upon checkin. Breakfast was good, with oatmeal, eggs, potatoes, sausages, yogurt, fruit, very complete.

Room Tip: check pillows before going to bed

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night as part of a 7 stop California driving holiday and it was great, also the only hotel that gave free breakfast which is always a bonus. The rooms were clean, spacious with good in-room facilities and we had a great view. The staff at reception were friendly although the restaurant staff could do with a bit of training in customer service but the food was good. All in all a nice great value hotel.
