“Loved the Pine Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Carmel is a wonderful place to visit while traveling the California coast.
Our stay at the Pine Inn was better than we expected, a gracious large old Inn situated perfectly in the center of town near the beach, shopping and great restaurants.
We recommend it highly!

It is one of the oldest hotel in Carmel, so you can taste a nice old-style atmosphere. On the other hand the advise they have on the reception desk that claims the building has not been restructured and therefore it could be not 100% safe in case of earthquake… it’s not the most reassuring thing you expect to find when you are travelling.
Anyway we had a very good stay, very friendly personnel, good breakfast, good location close to the ocean and to the main street.

Stayed there only one night (Saturday to Sunday). Our room was on the 2nd floor, facing the main street - no issues. The bathroom was huge, with shower and bathtub jacuzzi. It was clean. The bedroom had a funky/dated flower decor feel but it was OK. It was a bit noisy as our room was close to the entrance to the hotel rooms. For a b-fast we got 2 voucher $10/each (if I remember correctly) to the Il Fornaio restaurant that is in the courtyard. It was OK. The only issue we had with the place is parking. The parking in Carmel is not easy anyway but if you are staying overnight, you better get a place with a guaranteed parking. We arrived after 6 PM and the small hotel parking lot was fool - it cannot hold all guests cars! The staff actually doesn't care about your parking issue and tells you to park on the street, which you cannot since there are time restrictions on almost all streets.... We ended up parking at the library parking spot but had to re-park our car early Sunday morning. Overall - OK hotel with a great location but get there early to grab a spot and then just walk through the town.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor.

This little Inn is very quaint and very welcoming. Although the rooms are a bit small they were very clean and the bed was very comfty. The staff was extremely friendly, especially our waiter in the restaurant, Carlos. He was very efficient and very friendly! We loved the town and our stay in Carmel by the Sea!

Highly recommended Inn. Beautifully presented albeit the bathroom was very small other than that we loved our very short sty and wished we had longer. The reception design makes you feel like you're transported back in time and the staff were very pleasant.

Spent 3 wonderful nights at this charming inn located just 3-4 blocks from the ocean. (Breakfast which was included) was quite ample and very tasty though the same every morning. The staff is more than hospitable and though they had met us only upon checking, they remembered our name and room number each time we approached the reception desk. The room was small but ample and very nicely appointed. Most important of all, it was clean -- and I am PICKY about that. The location is the best as far as we were concerned -- being close to the beautiful ocean and in the midst of quaint shopping. Not going to find run of the mill shops in this area. Only negative factor here is that there is no elevator as it is the oldest inn in Carmel. Assistance with luggage is available.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from stairs.
