Checked in around 2pm, obvious there was an issue with the water supply. We went out to explore this beautiful town, returning around 10.30pm to find that we were to be relocated. No attempts to contact us whilst we were offfsite. Office not manned after 9pm. The onsite housekeeper was either stoned or drunk. An hour later we are still... More

This is my first time in Carmel. The town is so beautiful. I love the town and I choice green lantern inn. The service is really really good. The room is clean and quiet. The location is also great near the center and sea. Breakfast is delicious.

Clean and friendly inn steps away from the beach and the heart of picturesque Carmel. Has the drawbacks of old structures (narrow paths, steps, etc.), but this is an immaculate and very friendly property. This makes for a very sweet stay. Included breakfast is very fine.

Set back on a side street thick with trees, this collection of small cottages does not feel like a hotel, motel or even an Inn. The welcome was familiar and the privacy of our room, with the car conveniently outside, made us feel at home.

A quaint location that is very well located for walking around central Carmel. The staff is excellent in every way. We very much enjoyed the wonderful breakfast and chance to visit with other guest.

We stayed for 1 night recently and I wish I had planned to stay longer. The location is fantastic! So close to the central town, and the sea.

We had a short weekend stay in Carmel and came late on Saturday without problem. Slept well in a dog friendly room with our dog. Breakfast was nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the short walk to the beach before breakfast.

The green lantern Inn was great for a one night stay. Room is smallish but cosy and comfortable. There was no vegan breakfast though, so had toast and peanut butter, which is fine. Well located too and very friendly staff

I went to Carmel knowing very little about it, but the city is just like it has been brought from some fairy tale to real life, but without the awkward parts, and then this Inn came to complete my good time there.
