What a Gem! Built over a century ago, and moved to its current location via logs and horses, this exotic Inn is beautiful! There are great feelings when you walk into the lobby, as it brings you back to a glorious era. The staff are so kind, very helpful and it is located in the heart of the Village with... More

Pine Inn located very well for exploring the center, lobby looks good, parking is sufficient for weekday, breakfast is good enough...But, rooms luck outside ventilation/AC...We stayed end of Sept with temp between 55 night and 75 day, so I figured opening windows would be enough to cool down at night...So I requested a quiet room, was allocated one facing interior...

What I liked: quite reasonably priced for the services provided, nice staff, nice breakfast. What I did not like: "Chinese" taste decoration (I have nothing against Chinese people...). Decorating an AMERICAN hotel in a lovely city like Carmel-by-the-sea like a pagoda, for me is a crime ! Small rooms "crying" for renovation.

The Pine Inn is the first hotel built in Carmel. We loved it because it was comfortable and the location was great. Just a few blocks from the ocean. We were able to see the ocean from our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You are on the Main Street of a fun town with lots of options... More

Last minute, late checking. Grateful for the professional and efficient service. Lovely hotel. Bit pricey but worth it. Lonely downer is there was no elevators but it is the oldest hotel in town. Little bit of nostalgia. NICE.

I have a sales team of 38 reps. This was the best meeting location I have ever chosen for my meetings and I have been hosting these meetings for 6 years. I am used to putting the meetings on in Hilltons or Marriots and took a risk by choosing a non-chain hotel. The GM even worked with me in choosing... More

We arrived late on 5th Sept following a very long drive from Yosemite. We found the hotel car park but the hotel was difficult to locate initially as it was late and dark and the hotel was in a courtyard. The lovely Inga checked us in and upgraded us to bigger rooms. We had no idea where we were until... More

Pine Inn was charming from beginning to end. Surrounded by courtyards and Ocean avenue, it's the perfect launching point for the day. Our room was extremely small (as in there was about a foot of space from the end of the bed to the wall), but the breakfast room was quaint and surrounded by windows. It was like a room... More

Great location in the heart of Carmel. It has the potential to be awesome if some money was put into it to upgrade and redecorate the guest rooms. Despite all this, there is a certain charm about the hotel, a quaintness.
