Spent the night here recently on our way to San Francisco. We arrived late to Carmel & had nothing booked. Nice lady at the desk gave us the choice of two rooms, both lovely. We chose the one nearest the parking for convenience. The room was spacious & v clean. The bathroom was small but adequate. Breakfast was a bit... More

I wouldn't say we were greeted at check in, as the cheerless person who rattled off the rules and regs made it feel more like a prison intake session. But that wasn't the worst of our experience. Frankly in my view the place doesnt look like its had a makeover in a long time, with the exception of a bit... More

the reason why I gave 2 points is that we slept well. The apartment is small, if you open one case on the floor, the second person has to sit somewhere because there is not enough space to move around. The bathroom is small, the shower even smaller and without light. If you are in there you are either showering... More

We were looking for a last minute somewhat affordable place to stay in Carmel (everything is a bit expensive) and found the Carmel Fireplace Inn. Upon check in, we were upgraded to a slightly larger room. The rooms all have fireplaces which are easy to use. The location is great - about a 5 min walk to multiple shops, cafes,... More

We stayed in Room 25 (San Antonia?) for 2 nights in late July. The room is quaint, bathroom small but nice until I turned the duvet cover over and it was full (not one little spot) of blood stains. That ruined the stay for me. Of course, the room service changed all the bedding the next am and apologized and... More

Room was cozy; bathroom adequate; fireplace was necessary and gave great warmth and romantic atmosphere. Don't count on terrific breakfast. Have to ask for the hard boiled eggs; can toast bagels and have cream cheese; fruit was limiting. Access to Internet was inconsistent and slow when it connected. I would find another place.

This is a very nice hotel in the quaint village of Carmel by the Sea. The room was clean and every one has a fireplace. Very convenient to walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach. Parking available and convenient. Staff was very nice. Breakfast had very few options.

Even had old VHS with player in the room so we could have him watch a Disney movie or the first time while getting ready. the environment is very charming and the bedroom... More

Cozy room close to shopping and restaurants. The area is quite and peaceful and the staff was very kind and helpful. Each room has a gas fireplace and the size of the room was perfect for the 2 of us.
