Updated 09/02/20 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.


At the edge of sunny Carmel Valley Village is the Carmel Valley Lodge and Conference Center. It's a unique and peaceful setting, with 3 acres of flowers, fruit trees, vegetables, old growth specimen trees, and water gardens. The Lodge is a dog friendly resort with a public park across the street. Dog Lovers must visit Carmel Beach, one of the few LEASH-LESS beaches in California and just down Carmel Valley Road. The Conference Center is perfect for parties, training and team building workshops, corporate retreats, family reunions, and weddings. And, just a short walk away is Carmel Valley Village offering a host of shopping, dining, and wine tasting opportunities. Expect a really comfortable nights sleep on a really comfy bed made with the most luxurious sheets you've ever slept on. Rooms are individually furnished with real furniture, no cheap pressed board here! The staff is warm, friendly and accommodating and every guest is treated like family.

We had a wonderful stay at Carmel Valley Lodge. We found the staff to be incredibly friendly, welcoming and thorough. The rooms were very clean and they took COVID safety to heart which was important to us. The pool was our favorite part of the stay, so clean and open late so you can swim under the stars. They make a wonderful breakfast each morning that you can take back to your room if you like. Very child and dog friendly.

We stayed here as guests of a wedding located across the street at Gardener Ranch. This location was perfect! Clean beautiful rooms, friendly staff, and the sweetest pup Sophie who greets you in the main office and breakfast area! The included breakfast was a delicious bonus and very filling. I enjoyed a croissant and coffee on our patio and soaking in the beauty of the surrounding valley. Only wish we had more days to stay!!

My partner and I had a great time at this cute lodge. The room was nice, cozy, and smelled so good. The staff was super nice as well. We enjoyed the continental breakfast! I would definitely come here again. I recommend coming here as it’s 20 mins from Monterey and it’s very peaceful.

My fiancé was so happy with the place. Theresa was so helpful with restaurant recommendations, best hiking place and lemons :-) Oh and she taught a yoga class on Sunday. We had great accommodations. Didn't have time for the pool but other visitors enjoyed it. This place was so convenient to other restaurant and other activities. Hidden Valley gem.
