“Can't go wrong here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

I planned a relaxing girls spa weekend and, having never stayed at a B&B other than Cypress Inn in Carmel, I was skeptical to book elsewhere. Thankfully, my intuition took us to L'Auberge Carmel and there's no question that we'll be back. From check in to check out, the service at the B&B is unmatched. We were even offered a complimentary ride three blocks to dinner to keep my girlfriends and I out of the rain. We were treated to dinner recommendations, constant well wishes and tips about shopping hours and hidden markets with great wine. Breakfast was another surprise - a healthy spread of eggs, fruit, pastries and yogurt. Yum! If you're looking for a place to stay in Carmel, this is it.

Quite a lovely place with a delightful staff. The accommodations are quiet and spacious. Little touches such as a bathroom floor that is heated, cookies at night, and morning breakfast on the patio make this a special place. And dont forget to have dinner at their Aubergine restaurant for a culinary thrill.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a ocean view

This hotel was extremely pleasant to stay in for one night. The staff is very professional and courteous and the rooms, grounds and common areas are impeccably decorated and inviting. I have yet to have blueberry preserves as good as the ones served as part of the complimentary breakfast. Additionally, everything is included in the price of the room and service fee, including typical profit centers for other hotels: breakfast, valet parking, internet, though as one reviewer noted, coffee is not included. The small touches make this hotel stand out: cookies at turndown service, a packet of bath salts in your car as you say goodbye. Splurge and make your getaway in Carmel a memorable one.

My family and I just recently stayed at L'Auberge this past weekend, and had such an amazing time. From the delicious breakfast, to the nightly drinks at the reception area, and of course cookies at turn down. Just amazing. The convenience to Ocean really made our lives easier because we didn’t have to jump into our car to have a day out on the town. The best part of the hotel has to be the staff. They are ALL are so accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to assist you. For such a small establishment, we never felt that we couldn’t find someone to service us. We will definitely be coming back for all of our future stays in the future.

We've stayed at this property twice and loved it both times. The breakfasts were great, the staff awesome and welcoming, and the restaurant outstanding for dinner. We had visted Napa and went to the French Laundry and I have to say that our meal at L'Auberge was almost as good....it was outstanding. Love that we could ask for an outdoor table for breakfast in the courtyard, and it was set up right on time with a white crisp tablecloth. Very memorable and looking forward to coming back for our 29th wedding anniversary .... See you then !

Built in 1929, the European-style luxury hotel is located just four blocks from famous Carmel Beach and an easy stroll to the village's numerous art galleries, shops and restaurants.

Luxuriously romantic, the Carmel hotel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships—the perfect Carmel escape getaway. The interior decor of guest rooms is rich and pleasing, warm jewel tones accent the quaint charm of the architecture. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens, enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating, some with soaking tubs. It is one of Carmel’s few full service luxury hotels offering valet parking, room service and highly personalized guest services.
