We stayed 3 days at the Normandy inn. It's like a bed and breakfast. We stayed in a suite. It stands individually. No neighboring walls but we can hear people walking by as the walls are thin and we are next to the lobby. Clean room and bathroom. The comforter on the bed is very thin for this climate. We had the heater on and still used both blankets. Very uncomfortable pillows so if you are particular bring your own. We had a little kitchenette with microwave and a empty mini fridge so we stored our stuff in it. The breakfast is adequate. Bagels and cream cheese, instant oatmeal, cereal, hard boiled eggs and fruit. You serve yourself. There's also coffee and tea. The design of the place is rambling. You go up the stairs then down then up again. But with all the flowers around its charming. The best part is the location. Right between shopping and the beach. You can walk to both. There isn't room service in case you want to order in. Also parking very limited. We had to search for parking on the street. Overall I'm pleased because the town is so beautiful that we just came back in to sleep

We stayed here en route down south. Carmel is nothing that spectacular but this place is super quaint, especially the receptionist with her cat mr Tuffy! Go there for something quirky and fun.
The rooms are clean and the beds are really comfy, and generally a safe pair of hands to stay at.

Stayed here for first time upon recommendation of wife's brother - who has stayed here 5 or 6 times. We would definitely return. We had a cottage with fireplace - The Normandy is well located on the main street in the center of town - close to the beach, restaurants and (wine) bars. We did not take advantage of the comp breakfast buffet but it looked pretty good - seating limited though. All in all we really liked it and will go back the next time we return.

Great hotel in the middle of Carmel-by-the-Sea. We stayed in one of the cottages and were not disappointed. We enjoyed a very comfortable king-size bed with pillow-top and extremely cozy pillows. The cottage has a full kitchen and a wonderful separate eating area. We also enjoyed a fireplace each night with provided logs. Only negative was the tiny bathroom but we are willing to over-look that as we completely enjoyed the rest of the cottage. Fabulous!

Good location, just 4 short blocks from the beach on central Ocean avenue.
Parking is rather small can't accommodate all cars.
Staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is continental, don't expect anything.
Complementary Coffee and Sherry is always in reception area to comfort you.
Room with small siting area and desk was nice and clean.
Swing pool was closed due to renovation.
Overpriced? - Yes.
