My husband and I stayed a night in the Hemingway. The grounds are rooms are beautiful and the staff is helpful and kind. We loved sitting out by the fire after dinner and for breakfast! The breakfast was wonderful. Loved the local artichoke in the breakfast casserole and super fresh fruit. I would love to stay there again!

We stayed at Happy Landing for two nights over Thanksgiving weekend and our stay was amazing. We live in California but are from the midwest and weren't able to fly home for Thanksgiving but our stay at Happy Landing actually made us feel right at home :) We received a warm welcome upon arriving and our room was adorable and...

We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe room for 2 nights with our little dog. The inn is beautiful, with a typical old-Carmel style, not "fancy" but very appealing. Very comfortable bed with lovely linens. Fun Hollywood theme rooms. It's an easy walk to the beach or shopping. Being in the Monroe room is like having your own little house. The... More

The Happy Landing Inn deserves a much higher ranking on TripAdvisor! We weren't sure what to expect when booking as it was difficult to pick amongst the plethora of Carmel inns. We ended up being thrilled with our stay and were disappointed we could only spend one night there. The inn is extremely centrally located in the centre of town... More

This was the perfect little spot. The rooms are adorable and have everything you need. Breakfast was hot, fresh, and yummy. They have Keurig in the room so we made our own coffee. Service is very friendly, enthusiastic, and accommodating. Easy walking distance to everything.

The Happy Landing Inn is a place that not only meets the need of a warm place to lay your head at the end of the day, but a place that wraps you in its arms and makes you feel as if you are family, and at right at home. The property location could not be better! Less than a... More

This was a very nice place to stay. The staff was extremely friendly, the breakfast was good, and the setting, with a beautiful courtyard, was great—and it’s close walking to everything in Caramel. The Martin room where my wife and I stayed was nicely decorated with a romantic gas fireplace. The room was medium size overall, but the shower was... More

We just spent our valentines night with our friends at Happy Landing. We would highly recommend this B&B it was very romantic. A great location and the staff treated us like family. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The location is so quiet compared to other places we have stayed. You also get a breakfast delivered to your room.... More

I never got to stay in this hotel because they cancelled my reservation for May 2016 without explanation. I saw the money debited from my bank account and oddly refunded a few days after booking for no reason. I wrote to them about the problem immediately but received no reply. I made a long distance call and left a message... More
