Check inn desk clerk needs training on how to ask questions without being offensive. Breakfast area tiny couldn't swing a cat. They served sherry there apparently at 17.00 hrs but we didn't bother too cramped. Breakfast curfew at 9.30 too early 10.00 would work better. Pictures online make it look classically comfortable but it was just cheaply twee. Good pub... More

Carmel has been rated the most dog-friendly town in the country and we would certainly agree. So we recently stayed here with our two Shih Tzus in Room 37 and had a delightful visit. This room is completely separate from the rest of the Inn, like a little cottage, and had a fireplace and sitting area along with two full-sized... More

The Carmel Fireplace Inn is in serious need of updating. There are so many cute, trendy, updated motels and inns that have updated super successfully that they could learn from. There really isn't any reason that this place couldn't be fabulous. The location is great. Carmel is charming, quirky in places and this place could be too. The gardens and... More

I have mixed feelings about this place though it came highly recommended from a couple who have stayed there numerous times. The layout of the one room worked well for my husband and me and our 2 kids as it had 2 large beds and 1 and 1/2 bathrooms (brilliant). However the only heating was the gas fireplace. There were...

Stayed here over Columbus Day weekend and would never do so again. Had most expensive room and the checkin clerk was rude and unhelpful. Rooms were blah. Only positive is the location but there are numerous other inns as convenient with better accommodations and more hospitable service.

We had some bad travel karma and were a bit stressed when we arrived, but the charm and comfort of this Inn calmed us right down. The architecture and grounds are a bit of a ramble, but pleasant, with lovely scents in the garden. The bed was comfortable and the inn very quiet. The breakfast room is very pretty and... More

We stayed here for three nights. We had a smaller room with a fireplace on the ground floor. It was quaint and lovely. The room is inviting and pleasant. It was well kept. Not huge or luxurious but the bed was comfortable and the staff were very nice. It is located close to the main areas of Carmel. The breakfast... More

I have stayed here several times. My mother seems to love this place, especially the fireplaces and it is a short walk to Ocean Avenue and the Carmel Plaza. However, for the price, there is much that can be improved. Let's start with the fact that they claim they are a bed and breakfast. The breakfast is continental from Costco.... More

Fireplace Inn was a perfect escape. It is exceptional. The rooms are quiet, the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, Everything was very clean. The room space was perfect for two and quiet. The location is ideal; within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the beach. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Carmel and stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn on a Friday night. We stayed in the "Casanova" room upstairs with a distant view of the ocean. The gas fireplace was a nice touch and was easy to put on. The room was quite spacious and everything was clean and up to standard.... More
