After a very stressful stint on an overseas assignment, it was time to decompress. My girlfriend had the idea of a drive up PCH and a couple of days in Carmel. I'm so glad I just went with it. Yes, the drive was amazing, and Carmel is wonderful (17 Mile Drive... wow!), but the highlight of the trip was the... More

I stayed here 20 years ago and it was still very cozy and clean. We were unable to get a queen bed so had twin beds :( but felt like we had our own little cottage. Beautiful flowers blooming all around. Offer continental breakfast.

Stayed in room 205, I think it was adjoining another room, but the layout made it not an issue. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was adequate. Location is very good. Limited breakfast and coffee not very good, better to go to a coffee shop.

Great location, nice and helpful staff, chatming rooms that have a european feel. Always quaint and cozy and have cute cottages. Also you can stay for one night instead of a minimum of two like many other locations make mandatory. Have come here for over 25 years and never had a bad experience. Great value too! We stay regularly here... More

We had not booked a room for the night and were fortunate to walk in and get a king on the upper floor. Sherry & butter cookies greeted us in the cozy lobby. Very civilized! Clerk was helpful with map of downtown & restaurant selection. Bed was incredibly comfortable and there were nice amenities in the bathroom. The room was... More

We have been coming to Carmel for years. Always thought the Normandy Inn was cute, and it was in a great location! Close to Ocean Avenue shopping/dining and an easy walk to the beach. So we booked a night. The rooms have recently been redecorated. Esthetically they are very nice. The grounds are well maintained. However, the walls are paper... More

We live 4 hours away from Carmel and try to come visit at least once a year. For several years in a row our favorite spot to stay was Normandy Inn. We love everything about this place beginning with perfect location to the beautiful ambiance of the rooms. This time we got to stay at the 'Mason Brigette' - one... More

Our room at the Normandy Inn was spacious and comfortable, but the best part, aside from the in-room fireplace, was its convenient location in the center of Carmel, 3 blocks from the beach, 1/4 mile from the Carmel entrance to the famed 17 Mile Drive, and within blocks of at least 20 outstanding restaurants and many more shops. We will... More

stayed here only one night. wish the parking lot was bigger. but at least it had free parking. easy walk to the beach and restaurants, for the room: the bathroom seemed out of portion to the bedroom part. it could have more room in the room. wished there was easier access to the electric plugs.
