Room was clean and quaint. Breakfast was fresh fruit, coffee, toast, and a frittata made to your order (pretty good). Perfect location, only a block away from downtown Carmel. Very friendly staff which is very important to me. Only downside was the stairs and uneven walk paths. Not recommended for the elderly. A little rustic, but that's Carmel!

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your thoughts about your stay, including the friendly service you received from the staff which I will certainly share with them, again we apologize for the layout of the stairs that we have to the cottages which we try hard to determine given the architectural design in place. We surely want you... More

We were looking for a weekend getaway. Our Stay at the Green Lantern was simply amazing! The Location is perfect. Very close to the beach and the shops. The rooms are gorgeous. They are small cottages. Very nicely kept and absolutely serene. The service was amazing too. Front desk is super helpful! They have free parking and have complimentary breakfast!... More

The Green lantern Inn was a great place to wind up my west coat vacation with my two teenage sons. The three of us loved Carmel and the Green Lantern and plan to return for a longer stay. The service and staff were exceptionally polite and personable. Our room was a little cramped for three people, but that is through... More

Location is ideal, within short walking distance from everything in Carmel. We parked out car upon arrival and had not moved it until departure. Front desk and housekeeping was excellent. Breakfast was OK, but not what I would expect at B&B . You need to order your fritata upfront (the evening before) and you're only entitled to one helping :-)... More

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

A sjarmeredne place in Carmel. Close to beach and town. The room was clean and nice, but they have walls like paper. 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

Great stay. The staff was wonderful and attentive. Room was clean and comfortable. Great location with a short walk to the beach and dining. So much nicer than staying in a hotel. Would highly recommend the Green Lantern.
