Even though Car Week was canceled, we decided to keep our reservation though we weren’t certain what to expect. It was so relaxing and well run, we decided to stay 2 extra nights. The care the staff took to keep us safe was much appreciated. If I owned a business, Amy, the manager, would be the first person I’d hire. We talked to at least 3 couples who had never stayed there, and ALL of them were planning to return. Our dog, Louise, considers Carmel Country Inn her home away from home. It was our refuge in a time when we needed one.

Property's Favorite Review
We stayed in the deluxe King suite and could not have been happier. The room was romantic and lovely. The staff couldnt have been nicer and accomodating. Amy, the manager was so helpful with recommendations for dining and shopping. Breakfast was included and the most delicious continental breakfast I have ever eaten! Carmel is a stunningly beautiful place and the people are incredibly nice. (This coming from a Texan!) Hope to return soon!!!

The Carmel Country Inn is far and away the finest dog friendly lodging my wife and I have ever encountered during our frequent travels around the Western United States. The first trip we ever took with our newly rescued dog was to the Carmel Country Inn in Carmel. The various favorable reviews and ratings led us to book our stay in this Inn and our experience even exceeded the very glowing reviews that we had relied upon. Now 7 years later the first place we search out for reservations for our semi annual visits to the Monterey Bay Area is always the Carmel Country Inn! My best advice is to plan ahead so that you have a variety of rooms to select from. Numerous guests are return visitors and they have often determined the precise room they desire for their stay and book very early. Unlike most properties, the rooms at the Carmel Country Inn are unique in size, design and character. The rooms at this property are not at all cookie cutter, the array of room sizes and layouts is part of what makes this Inn so remarkable! The staff at the Inn are extremely helpful and do everything possible to make your stay as wonderful as possible. The breakfast service is the finest my wife and I have ever encountered and the numerous helpful hints about restaurants and places to visit we have obtained have been invaluable to the enjoyment of our stays! Do yourself a giant favor and check this property out and if you do there is a good chance our paths will cross on a return visit!!

We spent our honeymoon there and it was a blast! We enjoyed it a lot. When we pulled up they welcomed us with fresh baked cookies, They accommodated us very well. The staff was very helpful, the area was quiet, the rooms very clean, the spa within the room very nice, and the delicious breakfast just awesome. We really felt at home there and will come back for sure!

This is an annual 4th of July vacation to get away from all the fireworks. This year was different due to Covid. Check in was done at a distance, which we appreciated. We were provided hand sanitizer in the room; very nice touch. Only one family at a time was allowed in the lobby during breakfast, another plus. We had a small issue with the refridgerator in our room, which was promptly resolved. Many thanks for the quick resolution. Awesome customer service. We will definitely return.
