“good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Nice, spacious, well furnished L- shaped room with seating area and dinning table. We stayed in one of the lower level rooms which backed out onto the street, which made it a bit dark as we kept the street level shutters closed for privacy, but there was plenty of lighting in the room so it wasn't a problem. No issues with noise from the street as Carmel is a nice quiet place. The location was great as it is right on the main street with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The beach is a short walk down the same street. The continental breakfast delivered to your door, at exactly the agreed time, was a nice touch. Carmel is beautiful and this hotel is a good choice and great value for money

What a disappointment this hotel has turned out to be. We were so excited when we first discovered it, as location and price are very good. However, we have now stayed here 4 times and 3 out of the 4 times, we have had plumbing and odor problems. The toilets have backed up, the showers have backed up and there is a moldy smell in some of the rooms. This has also happened to friends who have stayed here. They claim that it is tree roots, but the hotel should do a thorough re-plumbing of their units. There has also been problems with dirty rugs. The staff is wonderful, but the owners need to take better charge of this hotel.

We stayed here for one night on our "tour" of California. They're located in the heart of the Carmel Beach area. It was nice to just walk over to the local restaurants and shops. I recommend parking at the hotel and walking around town as it's challenging to find close parking. It's a five minute walk to the beach although it's all uphill coming back. We had picked up some wine in Napa and we enjoyed it next to the room's fireplace. The beds/bath were clean and the room was charming. The employees we interacted with were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for three nights on our way to San Francisco and selected the Lobos on the basis of the reviews, we made an excellent choice. The hotel is conveniently situated close to most restaurants and the beach, The room was spacious and comfortable with a balcony on which we had the continental breakfast which was delivered to our room every morning. A very enjoyable stay.

We absolutely loved our time at Los Lobos Lodge! Super quaint, clean, spacious room. Loved waking up within walking distance of the water and then enjoying a glass of wine by the fireplace come evening. The location is fantastic, as it is tucked between the beach and plenty of cute shops/restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price can't be beat. When we come back to Carmel in the future, we won't be staying anywhere else! Hands down, this is Carmel's Best Kept Secret...

We stayed here for one night on our way down the coast and over to King's Canyon and Yosemite. The room (37) was big and includes a sitting area with a partial view of the ocean. The bathroom was nice and clean and looked newly renovated. It is on the second floor so it was pretty quiet. The bed was comfortable and the room has a small refrigerator and a gas fireplace. The included breakfast was nice but the earliest delivery time is 8:00 AM which since this was our first night after flying from the east coast seemed really late to us.

There was a slight stale musty odor, probably from the climate and the older carpet. The wifi was very slow so don't plan on doing any major downloading here.

Room Tip: Room 37 is their most expensive room but it is on the second floor with no elevators so you have to...

We loved everything about our recent 3 night stay at Lobos Lodge. Our expectations were high having consulted Tripadvisor before we booked but even these were surpassed. The beds and pillows were so comfortable, the room (no. 14) was so large it felt like a complete apartment, it was very peaceful although so close to Ocean Avenue and we had a view of the sea. It was actually very pleasant to have breakfast delivered to the room as it meant we didn't have to keep to a fixed schedule. The landscaped gardens are kept immaculately as our the rooms themselves, the free parking in a town as popular as Carmel is a real bonus, so in summary, full marks from us.
