Normandy Inn is a charming, funky kind of property almost in the center of town on Ocean Avenue. The rooms are a little dated in that the shower heads are low and the furnature is mostly made of wood, but everything is clean and comfortable. The hotel goes this way and that, up and down stairs - which is part of its unpredictable charm, and all of this wraps around a center parking lot, which is limited in size, meaning parking can be an issue. We had to park on the street and that was limited to one that allowed parking 24 hours a day. Lucky for us a space was easily obtained but I can imagine this could be a challenge on a nice summer evening. The innkeepers here were all very helpful and friendly, and breakfast, which is self-served homemade muffins, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee, is put out for the Inn's parons in it's own breakfast room. This worked VERY well. A note of caution - we drove up to Carmel from Southern California and programmed our GPS the best we could since Carmel doesn't use numbers on their streets. The address we used confused our GPS and we got lost in a residential area on streets with no lights. Calling the front desk got us back on track, but not without some angst. We still say it's worth the challenge and would stay here again. Note: It's a VERY short drive to the entrance to Pebble Beach's 17-mile drive!
