“A perfect Carmel getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Carriage House Inn will forever be our choice in Carmel-- and we go every year. The grounds, rooms, service, comfort are all excellent. We especially like the afternoon wine and cheese (and fruit and cookies, too!) where guests have the opportunity to meet and share Carmel discoveries/ suggestions. The staff are delightful and very friendly. We're very glad that we found this wonderful inn.

Great location. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Generous wine/nibbles "hour". Wine surprisingly good and spent way too much on each of 2 nights laughing it up with the rep and other clients. Memorable allround.

Room Tip: Get advise from the Inn at booking

Our second visit to the Carriage House Inn did not disappoint. The suite had recently been totally remodeled with 2 fireplaces and a two person jacuzzi tub in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit. The breakfast was great! We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: We had Room No 1 which faced out to the street but the street noise was not a problem and the HUGE w...

Not sure I'd rave highly about this hotel. I have no issue with the comfort of the bed, the cleanliness, the nice breakfast, the generous size of the room, the nice fireplace, pleasant staff, WiFi, etc. However, we felt that it was just okay; nice, but not super luxurious or a place that we'll always remember. Nothing wrong, but we've stayed in much more notable premium places for the same price.

The bathroom and vanity areas seemed to have been inexpensively constructed and therefore dated. Our room at the inn would be inaccessible to someone who can't climb stairs, or lug their own bags up a flight. There wasn't any view ti speak of but then it seemed no views are to be had in general in Carmel, since private home owners command the sea front properties.

Room Tip: ask for second floor if you don't mind stairs, it seems one on the first floor would be dark

The location was perfect. Park the car and you have all of Carmel at your footsteps. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Our room was on the second floor and had a tremendous vaulted ceiling. The added Breakfast and the wine/cheese reception were excellent. Our only commentary to the negative would be that the rooms showed a touch of age and could use some updating. Minor adjustments to the room (bathroom fixtures, wallpaper, etc). The lobby could also use a bit of a upgrade. Overall I would recommend and stay again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor.

A spacious room, Wonderful staff, Great breakfast, Great location... All in all it was great. We would absolutely return to the Carriage House on the next trip. The only down side was a personal preference. The bed was too soft and the pillows were all way too large.

We stayed at the Carriage House Inn in April. We had a great room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect. We parked our car and never drove it until we left. The Inn is within walking distance of great shopping and fine restaurants. The wine & cheese time was well prepared and most generous. The breakfast was beyond our expectations. The Front Office staff was so friendly and professional. We loved our stay and will return again & again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the inn!
