We booked a room for 2 nights for a wedding we attended in Carmel. The hotel has an excellent location close to downtown Carmel, with lovely views of the foggy ocean. The room was clean and the service was good. We received a nice touch with a continental breakfast arriving in a basket outside our door each morning. I would... More

Our room was equipped with a small refrigerator and microwave, and had a private balcony with a partial view of the ocean. Every morning a basket of breakfast food was left at our door - cereal, orange juice, fruit, croissants or hardboiled eggs. A nice touch was providing enough coffee in the room to make two cups for both of... More

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 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
