We made reservation for my wife's birthday weekend at the Pine Inn. We had a wonderful first impression as the front desk/check-in staff greeted us warmly and made us feel like VIP's! The lobby was decorated beautifully and was like being in a charming European location. It was also just a short walk to the beach and importantly...parking included! We had requested an ocean view room and when we entered it was everything we expected. Lovely/romantic view from the window, nicely but simple decoration, bathroom was clean with a old-world but modern comfort. To our surprise there was a complimentary Pine Inn branded bottle of chilled champagne next to the bed and a nice birthday note beside it! We also received vouchers for price off brunch at El Fornaio or could be used at the coffee bar.
The only problem we had was that it seemed the mattress had seen better days support-wise and was a bit uncomfortable in regards to a good night's sleep. I did mention it to the front desk in the morning and they were most apologetic and made note of it. This is no way would be a deal breaker for another stay. Looking for a nice, charming, romantic hotel to stay in the heart of Carmel? Try the Pine Inn!More
