I spent two nights of Memorial Day weekend at the Carmel Mission Inn with my dog Charlie and my mom and sister in one of their pet friendly rooms by the pool. Overall, our stay met my expectations - staff was very friendly, our room was nicely decorated with comfortable beds and a modern bathroom, and the pool, lobby and restaurant areas were nicely maintained - think a (very) updated version of an old Motel 8 with staff trained in hospitality.
Only downside, as you can see from the map and in other reviews - is the location - you need to drive to access the beach or town. Since it was a holiday weekend, finding an affordable pet friendly room in the area was a challenge, so we booked Carmel Mission Inn knowing we would have to drive to access the area, and were happy with how things ended up, but were a bit jealous of the more conveniently located properties. For a budget minded traveller (if there is such a thing in the ritzy area of Carmel!) who wants a comfortable place to stay and is willing to sacrifice on location, this is highly recommended.
