4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location, quaint in character of property & rooms, good staff. Only wish they catered at breakfast for European breakfast as an alternative as too much wheat meals. The location allowed us to visit town centre, shops and restaurants along with visiting the 17 mile drive and Monterey all in one day

In the room next to us,( but in an other cottage 2 meters from us) lived a family with children who were very noisy. Every time they walked out of the room, felt like they came into ours.... More

We spent only one night in Carmel, in the end of our amazing road trip from SAN to SFO, Green Lantern is perfectly located, you can walk to the restaurants, shops and galleries.

Cozy vintage rooms in separate cottages. Wifi and flat screen. Small frig in room. on street parking. Can walk to beach one direction. In other direction two blocks up and one block over to the shopping and dining district. No need to drive and try to park. Nice breakfast bar choices in lobby.

This quaint bed and breakfast is perfectly located one block from ocean avenue and a few blocks from the beach. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast options are filling and satisfying. The rooms are clean and comfortable but in need of a little updating.

PALM unit with queen bed is cozy, charming, homey. Room a bit too small for me, with a low overhead caused by being attic-like on the 2nd floor.
