My husband and I made a stop here on our honeymoon. We walked into the front office to check-in, and we were greeted by an amazing view and cookies! We knew that was a good sign! We then went to our room and once again had an amazing view! The room was huge, very clean and the view was unbelievable.... More

This beautiful hotel is set in the hills with an amazing view of the coast line. The little touches are what make this place special. Champagne delivered to your room with a rose & chocolates. Extensive breakfasts. Evening appetizers with pour your own wine. Logs for the fire place in the room. The building/room itself is a touch worn, but... More

Great room, very comfortable and the view is amazing. The staff is very polite and friendly. It has everything you want in a special getaway in Carmel. Don't expect a brand new contemporary hotel. This is classic 60's style but with modern upgrades.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Tickle Pink Inn. We had a wonderful time. The view from our room was stunning. We had a balcony to sit and admire it. It was very relaxing. We had a fire every night which made for a romantic and cozy setting. The continental breakfast and wine and cheese in the... More

This hotel was NOT a disappointment! Very nice with amazing views of the ocean! Breakfast was wonderful! They called it an extended continental. Everything you needed! Beds were extremely comfortable as was the room itself. I would definitely go back. Very private and romantic.

We would have liked a lot more than a one night stay. Our cove view room was well equipped with a gorgeous outlook, sadly not warm enough to enjoy the balcony. The afternoon wine and cheese was a great plus, and we also enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace. Our next visit will be longer!

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our recent engagement. The women at the front desk were very friendly and let us borrow a pair of binoculars for our Port Lomas hike later that day. There is a long list of classic and recent movies available to borrow for free during your stay. All rooms have... More
