My fiance and I stayed at the green lantern inn for a 2 day 2 night stay. Having gone to school in the area, I am quite familiar with what is around. For the price, you get a quaint room with nothing super fancy. The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean.
The only downside was the carpets were a bit dated, and even through they were cleaned the carpets could be replaced sooner than later. Also just like most places in Monterey, and Carmel, the water pressure was a bit on the lower side, but that is not uncommon for the area.
The green lantern inn is in a great location within Carmel itself. A few blocks from the beach, and easy walking distance to many shops and restaurants. I am glad that it's a block off the main road, so its a bit quiet.
A big positive was that we were able to have a reserved parking spot, which in Carmel can be a big plus, so we knew whenever we came back, we had a parking spot and didn't have to worry about street parking. Another positive is that the staff seemed very helpful, and their breakfast is more than your standard breakfast. They offered homemade eggs and sausage, and not the pre-made eggs.
Overall a good place to stay if your not after something extremely fancy.
