We loved our stay at the Horizon Inn. We were met by friendly staff who helped us with local restaurant choices and places to see. The room was roomy, clean, and attractively decorated. The bathroom gave you plenty of space to spread out your belongings. The kitchenette was a good size. The best thing was the breakfast delivered everyday outside... More

The Horizon is O.K. the beds comfortable , the fireplace is cozy and the location was nice as there are some really good restaurants within walking distance. The continental breakfast arrives at your doorstep in the morning with a fruit, cereal, milk and a pastry which is very nice. There is a useful counter and a microwave as well. Out... More

This is a beautiful hotel: it is scrupulously clean with huge attention to detail. Everything about this hotel is absolutely great. The staff are always very courteous and exceptionally helpful. The hot tub and patio area are always so clean and inviting and the fire is very welcome on chilly evenings sitting down there having a glass of wine!

We had a room with a fireplace which is wonderful on a foggy day in Carmel. Very cozy! Our room had a very comfortable bed and nice sized bathroom. Our car was parked just outside our room which was very accommodating. Lastly, the hotel is situated within walking distance of the town center but has a wonderful parking ability that... More

We opted for the lodge as we were staying three nights and it was - sigh - so worth it. The kitchen is too basic, but that was an excuse to eat out for dinner. It's close to a market/deli that was great to pick up lunch supplies and the head out to the numerous free outdoor entertainments. Back in... More

This is a very good hotel. The staff are excellent and it is very conveniently located close to the town centre. There is limited car parking on site but street parking is easy. An excellent picnic style breakfast is supplied each day

The bathroom was completely refurbished, the deck off our upstairs room had table and 2 chairs and we had a view of the ocean in the distance - we enjoyed beautiful weather, the morning breakfast basket, and the hotel staff was helpful about every...

We loved our visit here. The rooms were spacious and the view was beautiful (although a little far) without having to fork over a fortune. It was fun to see what we got in our breakfast basket every morning and snack on it while getting ready for the day. The rooms do not have AC, but a big box fan... More
