I've fallen in love! With Carmel! And where better to stay than the beautifully old fashioned, gentile, cosy and welcoming Green Lantern. Both Carmel and the Green Lantern are a blast from the past, in the very nicest way possible. From the warm welcome to the cosy accommodation to the scrumptious breakfast, and not forgetting the lovey surprise of nibbles...

We had a lovely stay at the Green Lantern Inn. Very attentive innkeeper, cosy and clean rooms, a full breakfast spread, a collection of DVDs and books to borrow from the reception area ... And location was great.

We've stayed at this bungalow-style B&B for a number of years and always come back. The rooms are always clean, beds comfortable and bathrooms basic. Decor is tasteful antique. Each small bungalow is surrounded by pretty gardens. Good coffee and homemade goodies are provided for breakfast (complimentary), The Green Lantern is a block off Carmel's main drag (Ocean Avenue) and...

We stayed 3 nights there and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect - close to the beach and to Ocean Ave. - a great shopping and eating area. If you like places with charm and personality this place is it. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable, and we made good use of the fridge. The breakfast/gathering room was...

We have stayed in Carmel before but this was our first time at Green Lantern. Very well located within easy walking distance of everywhere one might want to go in Carmel. Charming property with various cabins/lodges dotted among the trees. We stayed in oak, which was again charming, and comfortable in a cottage style. Good fresh breakfast and coffee on...

Stayed one night at the Green Lantern Inn in the Knotty Pine cottage. Not sure how the other cottages are but the Knotty Pine is smallish...not much room for luggage. The bathroom looks added on so maybe these were originally small plain cabins. The décor is cute and the grounds are nice. Breakfast was very good if somewhat limited. Service...

It’s difficult to find anything positive to say about the Green Lantern Inn, B&B – OK then, its in Carmel. The room is drab and bed linen shabby as are the towels in the tired bathroom. The shower is dangerous – scalding hot to cold depending who else might be tapping into the system at the same time, and water...

The staff and owners are very friendly and interested in their customers. They love to help you when needed. We had good fun in the bar. Beds are good, there is a beautiful garden, the food is good and that all for a good price. Loved to stay there.

Upside: excellent location, charming grounds, clean and comfortable room, reasonable price, friendly staff. Downside: after five nights the breakfast could use a little more variety and the double bed (my fault) got smaller every night. Overall: highly recommend and would definitely go back. Day trip to Point Lobos was fantastic. Thanks to Sandy for the advice.
