This hotel is well located and an easy walk to surrounding restaurants, shops and the ocean. The staff are pleasant and helpful. However, it is quite tired and poorly maintained. The rooms were quite dirty and the linen not at all fresh and stale smelling. It could do with a facelift which would warrant the cost of the rooms. The... More

We stayed in the cottage at horizon inn and ocean view lodge with our two teenage children. It was excellent. Location was perfect, near shops and restaurants and a 20 min walk to beach. The cottage was lovely, bed very comfy and sofa bed adequate. The breakfast basket each morning was a lovely touch. The wifi was fantastic which was... More

We stayed here with our two teenage daughters for one night as we were making our way down the coastal highway. What a charming hotel and little gem we found! Our room was roomy and comfortable, although my husband thought the bed was uncomfortable, it was fine to me. There is a wonderful patio area where the kids used the... More

We chose Horizon to stay for our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised with the location as its a nice walk to town with great parking. So it's quiet and cozy. The fireplace is nice and the bed super comfortable. Breakfast is delivered in a picnic basket and was lovely. The friends who joined us were very happy with their room... More

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
