Nice place, nice location, with some annoying features
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 5, 2017
We like this place with it's good location , good service, good breakfast, and nice furnishings and have been customers for a number of years.
We commented after their remodeling last year , that the bathroom needed towel rails on which to put wet towels and/or clothes. These are inexpensive, but still have not been installed, so towels have to be thrown on the floor, rather than being reused!
The WiFi is very weak and cuts out from time to time. You also have to re-sign in , for no apparent reason, sometimes in the middle of composing.
The heating system works well, as does the TV.

    Stayed for one night driving through and it was absolutely amazing. The room felt like a mini cottage with the fireplace and high ceilings. The towels were so soft and wonderful, the sheets were super soft and the pillows were just amazing. Breakfast is included and is delivered to your room. Warm pastries, quiche, coffee and juice. Can't say enough great things about this place. I'll definitely be back.

    This is one of the best places to stay in Carmel that tends to be expensive, but available at substantially discounted prices in low season. We usually come at the end of January or early February when the place is not sold out.

    Rooms have always been large and comfortable, but the recent remodeling has made them much more attractive. The management of Carriage House pays attention to details, and this is reflected in the high quality workmanship of all wall and woodwork finishes.

    The reception staff is very friendly. Your breakfast choices, which you must make by 10 PM on the previous night, are delivered to your room on a large tray.

    Room tip: All rooms are large, but the rooms on the top floor have higher ceilings.

    We recently stayed at the Carriage House Inn for my husband's 60th birthday. Beautiful spacious room and amenities. We were quite content staying in the room reading and relaxing. It was almost a chore to leave our slice of heaven. They provide a happy hour each evening with wine, cheese, fruit and nibbles. Thoroughly enjoyed stopping for refreshments before heading out to eat. Also included is a lovely breakfast which is delivered to your door at your selected time. Choice of bagels, muffins, cereal, quiche, juice, etc.

    Lori was our host and she is simply delightful! She went out of her way to make sure our stay was memorable. We loved the bottle of wine in the room congratulating my husband on his birthday. We looked forward to visiting with her every afternoon. Our last evening, the power went out (due to a bad storm) and there was Lori knocking on the door to make sure we were alright and giving us a flashlight to use.

    We look forward to our next visit. Hopefully very soon.

    Room tip: There is no bad room

    My wife and I on our pacific road journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles stopped overnight in magical Carmel and stayed at the Carriage horse Inn

    We found it to be a friendly clean luxurious hotel well situated in Carmel.

    We had a beautiful room spacious with a lovely separate lounge jacuzzi and comfortable bathroom with double shower.

    In the morning a tasty filling breakfast was delivered to the room prior to our departure.

    Beautiful hotel in a fabulous town in stunning setting

    Thank you all at the carriage horse inn

    It is not too much to look at from outside but insight the rooms are really nicely upgraded. Very friendly staff that made our new year celebration and birthday festivities special. The rooms were very clean as well.
