Let's face it, Carmel is an expensive place to stay, and while the Dolphin Inn might not be what you'd expect for the price in a less precious town, by Carmel standards it may be the best bargain in town. My room was comfortable and well appointed (right down to chilled wine glasses and a plush robe) and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The Inn has a (rather noisy) sports bar/restaurant right next door, but offers dining discounts to a number of excellent restaurants nearby, (I recommend the Bistro Giovanni just down the street. Best Halibut ever!), and the continental breakfast delivered to my door was adequate and appealing. My only quibbles; thin walls and loud neighbors (who, fortunately, passed out early), and it is, though walkable, quite a trek down to the beach. Although this was just an overnight on my way down the coast, I'll definitely consider the Dolphin Inn for a longer stay; such a deal it just might make Carmel doable again!
