Loved the Coachman's Inn! The room was spacious and very comfortable. I enjoyed the wine and cheese happy hour and free cookies. Great location – near shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here.

Lovely rooms, comfy beds, excellent proximity to down town. There are homemade cookies in the front lobby which is welcoming, the complimentary wine and cheese hour is an added bonus, and the homemade breakfast in the morning is satisfying. We enjoyed our road trip through Big Sur up to Carmel and are glad we stayed at the Coachman's Inn.

This little inn was located in the heart of Carmel and was very convenient and accessible to all the cute boutiques, wine tasting rooms, and restaurants. My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights for a sister's getaway and chose this inn based on her past positive experience with the inn in Coronado Island. Apparently, the one in Coronado... More

This is an excellent inn in Carmel. The staff was very helpful and knew the city, rooms are comfortable, location to restaurants and amenities are all great. The third floor is our preference. We always prefer a Four Susters inn when visiting California.

This hotel is centrally located in Carmel. Beds were comfortable but unfortunately there appeared to be no acoustic installation and the noise from the upstairs rooms was very significant. In fact we could even hear the upstairs occupant's coffee machine filing with water and every snore and sneeze that occurred. The breakfast was adequate and car parking plentiful.

Room large and comfortable. Keep the bathroom and front windows open at night with fan running to stay cool at night during the summer (no air conditioning). Fantastic breakfast varied a bit each day to keep it interesting, but always delicious! Fruit was sooo good and porridge (oatmeal) so creamy and good. Other items (pancakes, eggs, coffee cake, etc.) were... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights while travelling up to San Francisco. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, they still seem to be having the ongoing WiFi issue than others have mentioned. Perhaps they need to get someone other than their internal IT guy to look at the problem. As they seem to spend a lot of time on... More

The Coachman's Inn offers what is probably the best priced accommodations to be found in an overpriced Carmel-by-the-Sea. The staff gives its guests a warm welcome and offers them clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms in which to enjoy your stay. The parking area is limited in size, so leave any over-sized SUVs at home. An afternoon "wine and cheese" hour... More

Every year I make one or more trips to the Monterey area. When I'm accompanied by my wife there's only one place we consider: Coachman's Inn. You'll be treated to breakfast and evening wine with hors d'oeuvres.

We have stayed at Four Sisters Inns since our honeymoon long ago and far away, so we decided to check out and into the Coachman's on our most recent trip to CA. We really enjoyed the quiet hospitality and individually furnished and inviting room with fireplace. The bath was tiny and the temperature control in the room a bit more... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coachman's Inn has 30 spacious, comfortable rooms, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, and thoughtful amenities. Guests appreciate all these attributes, but perhaps most attractive of all is the location. Step out the front door and the charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea is in every direction. The white sand beach? A five-minute stroll. The Sunset Center, Monterey's premier arts venue? One block away. Boutiques, restaurants, galleries and wine tasting rooms? You're surrounded! One of the newest locations to be added to the Four Sisters Inn Collection, the Coachman's Inn resembles more of a small hotel than a bed-and-breakfast inn. Guests enjoy a complimentary signature breakfast buffet each morning, as well as afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres, in our beautiful Coach room. Romantic escape or girlfriends' getaway, the Coachman's Inn has a guestroom that is just right. Each of our newly updated rooms features a private bath, and king or queen bed with luxurious linens. Some rooms offer two queen beds, or inner doors connecting two rooms - perfect for families or friends traveling together. Some rooms have cozy fireplaces or jetted spa tubs. Our innkeeper will help you select the guestroom that best suits your needs.
