A little to close for comfort. Location: The inn is located on the Ocean avenue which is the Main Street in Carmel. The grounds are well kept and full of flowers. Parking: They have limited parking, otherwise there is street parking. If you chose to park in their parking be careful which spot you pick as we had trash dumped on our car from housekeeping dumping trash over the rails. Rooms: We booked directly on the Normandy Inn website and chose the Deluxe Fireplace Room. Unfortunately the description did not disclose this was directly adjacent to the street so the busy street with all the foot traffic and cars was less than a foot away. (See picture). There was also no mention of the room being a bottom floor unit so there was significant noise from the rooms above. Breakfast is no longer included as we were informed they had lost their license. The staff was very friendly, but if you are looking for a quite environment this may not be your best option unless you call them directly to ensure what type of room you’re booking.…
We go to Carmel at least once a year. Always passed this property on our walk to the beach. Celebrated My Birthday this time. First time staying here at The Normandy Inn. Courteous Front and Housekeeping staff. Very clean property. Loved the Heated pool! It's on Ocean Ave. and close to Everything! No breakfast but it wasn't an issue because we were so close to a couple of coffee shops and restaurants. My only Con is that I wish they would provide a fan for your room. It wasn't an issue for us, we brought our own. Otherwise, this hotel/Inn was awesome! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well-maintained, clean property with gorgeous flowers; walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the beach. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable with what looked like a newly remodeled bathroom. Conversation could be heard from the room next door. This was the only indication that the property was built years ago.
I enjoyed our night there as the room was spacious , well decorated and the bed very comfortable. There was a refrigerator in the room as well as a Keurig coffee maker. It would have been great to have a microwave. It is located about 3 blocks from the ocean on Ocean avenue.
Had a junior room in the back, quiet and looked out onto many trees. While there was no fridge or microwave, the room was very clean, with a spacious bathroom, very comfortable bed and the softest sheets. Staff professional and friendly.
