My husband and I stayed in the Senator's Cottage with my mother, sadly for just one night. The cottage is located near the main hotel (with connecting stairs), but has it's own private parking and entrance. It has an excellent view of the ocean, especially from its own patio. Champagne and chocolates were waiting for us in the cottage -... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn for 2 nights. This place is a perfect hidden gem. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner locations. They presented us with a welcome bottle of champagne and chocolates. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel offered a free light breakfast with something for everyone.... More

We stayed two nights in a deluxe suite during our honeymoon/road trip through California, and we could not be more pleased. We got in sooner than expected, but our room was ready for us. We were greeted by friendly staff and had a bottle of champagne on ice in our room. The room itself was spacious and beautiful with the... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel/motel/B&B. Wasn't that impressed when we first drove in as it looks just like another B&B motel. However after checking-in, we like it as we explored more about this place. You can tell it's a very old hotel built around 50-60 years ago. However it's very well-maintained and you can see the quality craftsmanship... More

The Tickle Pink in has a great location with magnificent views. It is a great place for a romantic getaway in Carmel. We enjoyed a Suite with a fireplace and a jacuzzi in the Room. I would have rated it higher if it had an own restaurant (there is a lounge for breakfast, but no restaurant for dinner) and we... More

The Tickle Pink Inn is a memorable name and a lovely place to explore Carmel and the surrounding areas.It is a small and cozy Inn sitting on a hilltop overlooking the ocean and the coves of the Pacific Ocean. The rooms are spacious, great balconies and very clean and quiet. Little touches like wine in the room for a special... More

If you take one thing from this review, it is this: you are paying top dollar for a nice view and nothing more. This is a dressed up version of an interstate off ramp motel. If you are young, well traveled, and come to expect clean, well appointed, and modern amenities that should come with a Triple AAA Four Diamond... More

Perfect hotel to get away from the chains. The views are amazing and first class accommodations. From the moment you walk into the lobby to check in you will be hit with the most incredible view of the shoreline. The view carries through to each individual room, some with fireplaces, some without. Soft bed, clean room, slippers and comfy robes... More
