This is a note that my family shared many opinions about this hotel. The rooms were like apartments, all snug and cozy. The lobby is red so be prepared to like red and it is also very warm. The rooms were decorated with fine artifacts from the years passed. I thought this was a beautiful hotel.

With all due respect to my co-author, I disagree completley. The "queen suite" was anything but sweet - although billed as the second best room in the hotel. The rooms must have been decorated when the hotel was originally built in the 18th century and never replaced. The racket from the exhaust fan from the restaurant next door obviated any need for an alarm clock - no one could sleep -but at least it drowned out everyone's complaining. They decided to decorate the interior of the lobby with painted lattice which made me feel like I was sleeping on a fence. The location was pretty good.

We were greeted with a very surly check-in, with no promise of parking, which was extremely limited & in the back of the hotel. The rooms were VERY small, so much so that you could barely walk around the room. There was no ventillation (a/c or fan) and the heater was broken, blowing hot air all day. We had to leave all the windows open as we were sweltering. The room overlooked a courtyard with a restaurant in the middle. Very noisy (especially the fan from the restuarant). No modern amenities (coffee maker, frig, HBO). Be prepared for very vivid Victorian colors - especially red.

I really loved the Pine Inn! I read the other reviews and while there are stairs going up to the lobby and no elevators, this did not bother us at all. The bellman assisted us with luggage and the staff was very kind. The decor was really beautiful and charming and for $149 a night in Carmel including breakfast, we thought it was a great deal. It's a historical hotel and they do a wonderful job in maintaining the property and the location is excellent! We had a great time and will definitely return!

The lobby reminds you of a true old world hotel, great first impression, but... Even the full sized king rooms are VERY small and the decor in the rooms does not live up to the style set by the lobby. If you have a room overlooking 6th street, the deliveries from the restaurant start in the early morning and idling trucks may be present for extended periods throughout the day.
With all the wonderful inns in Carmel, why take the risk.

The hotel is located just a few blocks from the beach on Ocean Avenue.
It is a historic building, 146 years old and the receptionists felt we should of known this???? Therefore, if you have difficultly with steps...forget it!!
No elevators...no floors on the main floor, plus many steps up to the lobby!

Pretty snooty receptionist said if we knew Carmel, we would know this...blah, blah, blah!!!

Complimentry breakfast was good!

Found a great bar, burger place...Jack Londons...Eastwoods place the
Hogs Breath smelled funny to us and we walked out...lots of GREAT dining restaurants...

would not stay here again...young enough to do steps...simply did not like their attitude...
