Clean, comfortable and well equipped with friendly staff. The Hotel is situated opposite a shopping centre and a 5 minute drive from the pretty town of Carmel. We stayed in room 249 which overlooked the rear of the Hotel which meant it was quiet. The Breakfast buffet was fresh but variety was quite limited.

Location: Meh. It's next to the highway (1), behind a gas station, sandwiched between several strip-malls. A mile and a half to the (amazing) beach, and about three miles from Carmel-by-the-Sea shopping district. The hotel bar and restaurant: competent but nothing special. Good food is plentiful in the area, though, and Yelp! was a reliable source of options while there....

We have stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn several times with family and friends. Very dog friendly, great food, rooms are spacious and clean with up to date décor. The location of this hotel is perfect as it sits in the middle of Carmel By the Sea and Carmel Valley so the weather is usually sunny and warm. The pool...

I've stayed at a few places in Carmel and the Carmel Valley, and I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice the Carmel Mission Inn is for its price. It doesn't quite earn the 4 star rating - but comes pretty close. The hotel is situated in a great location for getting into Carmel, down to Big Sur, or up...

I'm not certain the hotel is worth its price of admission but that's for the mechanics of supply and demand to determine. What I am certain of is the following: 1. Our first room had poor plumbing. The toilet flushed inconsistently and the shower's stream of water was weak at best. To their credit, the hotel staff moved us to...

The staff here was wonderful, but the hotel itself was very dated. It's obvious that they've been doing renovations, but the hotel isn't quite there yet. The pool/ hot tub was nice, but the pool wasn't clean. I didn't really feel like the rooms were super clean and comfortable, but you get what you pay for. The location was convenient....

A nice property a little away from downtown Carmel (5 min by car) but next to a large shopping area with a Safeway, Starbucks, gas stations and assorted shops and restaraunts. Pool and hot tub and nice staff make this a good place to stay. The rooms are large enough, clean and well furnished.
