This is a fun, old-fashioned hotel right on Ocean Avenue, the main street in Carmel. We thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and feel of this property. The accommodations are comfortable and up to date, yet warm and welcoming. Every time we visit Carmel, we secure a room at the Pine Inn. During the week days, a tasty buffet breakfast is included...

We stayed at Pine Inn this past week. Room 28 to be exact. For one there is only twenty parking spaces for 49 rooms so be prepared to pack your bags up and down the streets of Carmel. Next, we get up to our room on the third floor (no elevator either) and our room door was slanted and had... More

Best breakfast for the price. Eggs, bacon, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. Even if you're not staying at the hotel this is a must. $10.00 per person and sit back to enjoy a wonderful breakfast in a beautiful setting. Hint: try to get a table in the sun room.

Nights of July 16 and 17, 2016 No elevator for handicapped or elderly. Only 1 room for handicapped access although Pine Inn boasts "handicapped accessible." Shower could not be turned on without extreme force. Parking lot always full; not reserved for use by Pine Inn Guests. No room service. The ONLY good thing was a comfortable bed! Rating of barely...

This hotel has a good location in a lovely town, perfect for restaurants, shops, cafes and the beach. Having parking was a plus for us too being on a road trip. The room we had was small but great, a comfy bed, clean and a good shower. Would happily stay here again if I return to Carmel.

It's more like a boutique hotel. I liked the looks of it. The hotel is in the middle of everything and has a nice sized parking lot in the rear. The staff was nice. The room was small, bathroom small; this was fine with me. The traffic outside, including trucks, woke me early in the am. That night, as I... More

Basic, clean rooms which are spacious enough and centrally located to explore Carmel with a first-come, first-served parking lot. The wifi was a little slow (being upgraded), the breakfast was only included for Monday-Friday which seems bizarre. Overall, well-recommended. There is no elevator but not a big deal as only a couple of storeys high.

We returned once again to the Pine Inn and it was great to see nothing had changed. The hotel is old and quaint, the floors in the hallways and rooms aren't quite level but it's loaded with character and superbly located right on Ocean Avenue in the heart of the Golden Rectangle. Breakfast buffet style is included weekdays and is... More

Selected for location and price, for one night...perhaps our room was commensurate with the price [lovely breakfast was included] and a more exepensive room could be larger...queen bed and not much else...bathroom ample...quiet at night and enjoyed an upper floor with windows open for a lovely coastal breeze...biggest problem was no elevator, requiring help [due to my back problem] to...

We stayed one night in double bed room. The room was clean. However the carpet and paint need to replace and repaint. The window blind must be replaced. We opened the window to cool down the room. However, there was not insect screen. The breakfast was tasty. The parking was limited. The location is the best. It is a short... More
