Once we arrived for check-in, we were greeted with a warm and inviting welcome by the proprietors. The room was so quaint with a private gate and courtyard leading up to it. Once we got settled in, we headed back to the office for dinner recommendations. They were very thorough in explaining our options for dinner/drinks. Would definitely stay again... More

This is a small friendly hotel with a sunny courtyard for that wine and cheese they provide early evening. An easy way to mingle with other guests if you wish. The rooms are large and comfortable and clean. A good (free) breakfast choice is provided with civilized time options to receive it. It is in close proximity to the town... More

This place is a welcome break from the everyday standard hotel room. It's a quiet peaceful house and our room 11 was great with a soaking tub, gas fireplace and they had a nice bottle champagne waiting for our anniversary. It's walking distance to shops and beach and was a great stay overall. The breakfast was also very nice and... More

A very pleasant stay for my husband and I. We accidentally booked a room on the street side. It was beautiful, but noisy. In the future we'll stay in a different room. Good breakfasts, nice location, easy walk to everything. Overall a wonderful time away for the two of us.

We stayed at Vagabond's for three nights whilst touring California. It's a pretty inn and very well located for all shops, restaurants and beach (all are just a 5 - 10min walk away). We were greeted by Randall upon arrival and he was great, cheerful with plenty of enthusiasm and showed us to our room, showed how everything worked in... More

Small boutique environment which we enjoy. Stayed in room 10 which was very nice with a fireplace which worked quite well. Very convenient, clean and quiet despite being in a central location. Lots of good quality restaurants and breakfast cafes around which we went to each day. Stayed 4 days and enjoyed it. Not much interaction with the staff but... More

I decided on this inn based on other reviews. The check in was great and when we weren't sure about our room we were shown an alternative. With no air conditioning in all of Carmel I knew what we were facing but there was no cross breeze and we ended up being quite warm. The staff was nice and the... More

Among the many lodging options in Carmel, the Vagabond proved to be a great choice. Welcoming and hospitable, the staff go above and beyond to acquaint you with the property, its amenities and the many options the area offers. We even purchased Aquarium tickets at a discount.

The Vagabonds Inn was fabulous. Thomas was really welcoming and gave some great tips about the local area and even booked our aquarium tickets for Monterey the next day. We had room 6 which is the smallest, but for us it was perfect. It was actually quite big in our view and it was very light and peaceful. The breakfast... More
