Good location, close to Carmel by the Sea and Carmel Valley. Clean, great breakfast and sandwiched between 2 quality shopping areas. Lots of food close, good place to stay. Try a trip to the Running Iron Bar & Grill in Carmel Valley. Fun place, good cold beers and wineries near.

Thank you for your kind words. Sound like you enjoyed one of our clean, pet friendly rooms. You noted the breakfast and you must have chosen the B&B package which is our best deal. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again. Just remember to visit our website or contact us direct for the best rates and packages. More

We were looking for a spontaneous weekend getaway that wouldn't break the bank, and yet wasn't totally charmless, for two nights in Carmel. We definitely found that at the Carmel Mission Inn, which had cool retro charm, was clean, fun, comfortable, spacious, quiet, close enough to plenty of restaurants, the Carmel Mission, Point Lobos, and the town of Carmel. It... More

Carmel is a very nice place and can be a bit pricey. So if you're looking for a good value hotel, this might be it. The hotel is located on the outskirts of town, in some kind of office park. I agree with other reviewers that the public areas are a bit gloomy. The rooms are OK though, no complaints.... More

The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The property is georgeous not to mention the coastal drive to to get there! Close to an upscale outdoor shopping plaza along with a Safeway and there is a mini fridge in the room. I did not try the hotel restaurant but the Rio Grill across the street was very good.

Room was smaller than i expected since I paid for Deluxe Room at $170.oo. The Staff was very nice,helpful and friendly. I was very impressed when a young gentleman Jose Ortega called me Mrs. King (nice Touch.)at the front desk.

We stayed only one night at this hotel but we enjoyed the room and the fact that it was near a small shopping mall where they had restaurants and shops. Our room was charming and pleasant, but no view. The morning breakfast was not very good. There are a few good breakfast places in Carmel, that are more enjoyable. The... More

we like to walk and this place was sort of on the outskirts of town so we made reservations. As we drove up to it my fiancee started getting quietly anxious. She's a slight hotel snob. Looks like a typical state route roadside old motel. Putty colors with a touch of harvest avocado from the 50's. I said, let's give... More
