If you are traveling to visit Carmel by the sea, this is a 'must stay' hotel within the price range. Hotel exterior and Interior is impeccable. It is at walking distance from beautiful market place down the hill. (Please take a ride/drive down if you are planning to see the beach area because its a steep incline while coming up,... More

We made a one night pit stop here on the road from San Francisco to LA. The hotel looks a lot better in the online photos. Rooms are very small, dark and not air conditioned. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. Breakfast is fine and the hotel is well located - just a short walk to shops... More

Wonderful accommodations. Feels like a well maintained "mom and pop" type of B&B and yet it is a Comfort Inn. Fits in perfectly with the serenity of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Would definitely stay thee again and again!

This hotel is not by the coast, but you could walk there if you wanted and didn't mind walking back uphill. It is near to downtown shopping, wine-tasting (suggest Paso Robles for this instead), and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it.

The location was great and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast was a bonus to get an early start. The flowers around the property were beautiful. The room was clean and ready upon arrival. We had no problem finding parking.

This was a great way to see Carmel. Loved the room / location/ and will stay longer next time. Very comfortable easy parking and great breakfast too. Clean and neat and a fireplace to boot. Not terribly pricy. Got great recommendations for local restaurants and shops. A pleasurable visit. A true A+.!

Great place to stay, within walking distance to downtown Carmel and beach. It's our preferred hotel! It's affordable and is a great value. We are never disappointed. Parking can be a challenge, but it's all about timing to get a spot in the lot or street parking spots.

This hotel was a great find in Carmel. The location is perfect - right on the edge of the downtown shops with a small market just across the street. Most everything in town is a easy walk from the hotel. The hotel has a charming exterior and a nicely-appointed interior. It doesn't have the feel of staying in a standard... More
