Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is very old but clean and comfortable. Resturant is excellent! I would definately stay at the Pine Inn in the future. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was large!

You are welcomed with a huge fireplace and comfortable lobby furnished with antiques. Rooms are nicely furnished with comfortable bedding and wonderful down pillows. Hallways and staircase are narrow and there is no elevator. This is a historic inn! Staff is friendly and helpful in every way. We were missing vouchers for our package and it was taken care of immediately. The restaurant is wonderful and breakfast included is a full breakfast. Location could not be better-2 blocks from the beach. Price is very reasonable for the various packages.

We were only planning to stay in Carmel for one night at another nearby hotel and then we were going to head out to San Francisco. Well we enjoyed Carmel so much we wanted to stay another night and the hotel we were staying in but they were already booked, but highly recommended the Pine Inn. We called and were greeted by a very welcoming voice on the other end of the phone. Alli made us feel very welcomed and she met our needs when we arrived. We were pleasantly impressed with the decor and the beautiful spacious room we stayed in. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable and the spa robes they provided were luxurious. We never had to phone the front desk for anything and was treated just as nice when we left as when we arrived. This was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay and I will highly recommend it to others. I am global event coordinator and am usually treated very well especially when a contract is going to be signed. I did not disclose this information at all and was treated as if I was a big client. That is customer service at its best for you.

Carmel is a lovely town with lots of great shops and a truly gorgeous beach. However, the Pine Inn is not the place to stay to enjoy it. The other reviews do not seem to accurately represent our experience of staying at the hotel. The room had a layer of dust, and we were woken (without warning or apology) by builders clambering around on the roof literally outside our room. Furthermore, the room itself was actually in a separate part of the block and therefore a real pain to get to with cases and of course parking was an additional walk away. We hope to return to Carmel soon -- but rest assured we won't be staying at the over-priced and over-rated Pine Inn.

P.S. Breakfast was not even worth bothering with. A rude and disinterested staff member simply went around looking grumpy, while the selection of food on offer was very poor indeed. It was a disappointing end to our stay at the Pine Inn. Avoid it.

P.P.S. We would however recommend the great restaurant in Carmel: Demetras.

With all due respect to the guest writing this review, we were in the process of painting the outside of the East Wing building, which is located right next to the main building. Knowing that the painters would be around the outside of the building, I wrote a letter describing the process and scope of the painting to be performed. The letter was placed in each guest room for viewing. As the letter stated, the painting would begin daily at 9 am and conclude daily at 4 pm. Furthermore, the letter stated that if there were any concerns I could be reached at extension # 403. I (we) never heard from any guests complaining about the painting.

The parking lot is located behind the hotel and is just as accessible from the East Wing as it is from the main building, perhaps even quicker to reach.

Right in the middle of town, great location. States it has parking, but beware, we were told that since it was a holiday weekend and they were completely booked, it was first come - first serve, so parking may not be there. Also, no breakfast provided on the weekend! Otherwise, very nice place with a very nice staff!
