We were a little worried when we first arrived. We were told we couldn't check in till 3pm which was fine but the lady at the desk didn't know what to do with us or the bags. When asking about places to eat or where to go she didn't quite know. When we came back at 3 to check in there was another lady who was a little 'cold' and when asked to make a reservation she was a little strange about it and then never came back to us if it was actually made.
Why the 4 stars then???
The room! Wowsers! Absolutely stunning, high ceilings, fire place, jet bath, breakfast in bed... The list goes on. So those 5-10 mins of not the greatest customer service didn't ruin our experience! Thanks!!

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to post a review. We apologize for the lack of warmth and knowledge when you first arrived. We would love to speak with you personally regarding this, it would certainly aid us in further staff development and training. I can be reached at dawn.dull@innsbythesea.com.
As for the rest of the review, what can we say, but THANKS! Those amenities are what put us above and beyond our competition, along with our off street parking for every room, nightly complimentary wine and cheese and our terrific location.
We hope that you will consider the Carriage House Inn for your next stay in Carmel. We have terrific fall/winter specials coming up, so be sure to check your emails for the special offers.
Best wishes, Dawn

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carriage House Inn in late July. We loved the proximity to the restaurants, beach, and shopping. Everything was within walking distance. The property was very clean and quiet, and the room updated and large. The breakfasts, which were included in the price of the room, were delivered each morning to your room and were absolutely delicious! We would not hesitate to stay at this property again in the future.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for posting such a nice review! We like to think that we have a lot to offer and it sounds as though you agree. Hopefully you had the quiche with breakfast, we get it from a local Parisian bakery and it usually gets a four thumbs up review!
Be sure to watch you email for our upcoming fall/winter specials. As a returning guest you can realize savings of sometimes up to 50% off, what a deal!
We hope to see you again and soon,
Best wishes, Dawn

The Carriage House Inn is a very small quaint, quiet and clean perfect place to stay.
The rooms was large with a nice fireplace and very open and light.
Location was close to town for walking as well as very quet and clean.
Glad we chose the Carriage house for our two night stay.
The breakfast was delicious the best quiche I have ever had!

Room tip: Choose upper floor

We wanted city center, walking to shops, restaurants, and beach, but in a quiet part of town. This B&B met our criteria to a T. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions, recommendations and not shy about expressing their true opinion, breakfast was very good although not as many choices as you might get at a big hotel.
Parking was a bit of a challenge, not the availability of it because there you get a space on the property but the spaces are a bit tight.

Room tip: Recommend 2nd floor with the high ceiling.

Dear Chip,
Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to post a review. You described our location perfectly and we certainly appreciate your kind words about our staff. Although we consider it a treat to be served "breakfast in bed", it does put a certain limit on the menu, which we are always looking to improve upon. We are in the process of checking to see if we can re-configure the parking in anyway, to make it a little less tight, however with summer in full swing, that will be a winter time project when it happens. We hope that you will keep us in mind for your next trip to Carmel!
Best wishes, Dawn

I have to many good things to say about this place! After leaving disappointed with an inn in Napa, my hopes and standards were very low for this place. Once we were shown our room, my husband and I were both beyond excited for our 2 day stay in Carmel! This place is all luxury! Extremely comfortable beds, hi-def television, a bath and shower large enough for soaking, a complimentary simple breakfast, complimentary beverages and snacks in the room, and an excellent turn-down service complete with chocolates on the pillow! I didn't want to leave!

One thing that should be noted is most places in Carmel do not have AC but with all the windows in our room and a ceiling fan, we thoroughly enjoyed the cool sea air and didn't miss the AC one bit! The pictures on their website are absolutely accurate and we highly recommend this place! The staff is also incredibly nice and accommodating. We will be returning for sure!

Dear Ashley,
Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to post such a nice review! We know that with all the internet marketing out there, it is very easy to be drawn in by "just another pretty face" and then be disappointed by the actual experience. Our entire staff prides itself on ensuring that our guests' stay is the best it can possibly be. We hope that you will have the opportunity to return and stay with us again.
Best wishes, Dawn
