We spent two nights and three days with Cody,( our Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix) in Carmel, staying at the Carmel Fireplace Inn because they accept dogs. The cottage charm in this bed and breakfast lodge was in keeping with Carmel. It was perfect. The room was large and had a fireplace and a full bath. We were on an end... More

We have stayed at the Fireplace Inn many times and have always enjoyed our stay, not matter what room we've reserved. Even though it is an older establishment and rooms a little cramped the are clearn and comfortable. The continental breakfast is nice, although it could stand a little variety and the dining area nicely kept. Big problem - terrible... More

I should have written this sooner but I hate trashing places-however I can't get this old dirty place out of my mind. We went in May for a 2 day stay for our anniversay and stayed in the Santa Fe room . It was very small but that would have been o.k. except it was very dirty, the windows had... More

My wife and I stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn at the beginning on November and loved it. Tina was the lady running the Inn and she was very warm and friendly and did a great job at making us feel welcome and at home. A nice touch is complimentary port and sherry at 6:00pm wich gives you a great... More

Stayed at this Inn during Concorso Italiano. The location is excellent, within walking distance to Ocean Ave where you Concours D'Elegance took place, close to grocery stores and plenty of shops and restaurants. A few blocks from the beach as well. Very charming room and friendly staff.

This property looked cute online, but.... It has paper thin walls. We heard every coming and going, conversation, and car/truck that drove by. Talk about no sleep! We also upgraded to a room with a fireplace - big mistake! The rooms smells like old gas stoves that stink. We were scared that we were going to soak that smell into... More

We booked a room, last minute, at Fireplace Inn because we decided to join sister-in-law and husband for a get-away to Carmel and this is where they were staying. Great central location in the village - walking distance to all. Nice front desk staff in very small or cozy office. Unfortunately we got the front, older room- while spacious it... More

Access to rooms is hazardous. Fireplace/heater not worth beans. Electrical outlets dysfunctional. Showers made for hobbits who Want to wash their feet with only cold water...takes forever to heat. Kneel on All fours to operate video. Views non- Existent. Poor parking. Spend a little More and you'll be more satisfied.

This is a cottage-style collection of rooms in a quiet neighborhood. Very friendly staff, nice continental breakfast buffet (rolls, juice. etc)/ Most rooms have fireplaces, and they permit dogs in certain rooms for an extra fee.The facility rambles over uneven ground and parking is tight, but in general this is a very welcoming place. Across the street is a sports... More

We loved the atmosphere of Carmel, and that was also due to our stay at this B&B. Our room was located right at the patio, a great place to have breakfast in the morning or enjoy the afternoon sun. The room was simply great; nicely decorated with cute details and a fireplace. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom. The VCR and the... More
