“Ok hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Stayed there only for one night. Old hotel... Smells like old, sheets and towels were old. Thermostat didn't work. Staff in a bad mood, at check in and check out. Breakfast was ok, no big deal. Free parking. Good location.

We were looking for a quite place to just relax and enjoy Carmel after a long drive from LA. This was just the ticket. Quiet self contained cabins just off the highway and within walking distance of the town center.

The only disappointment was the bathroom, which given the size of the cabin was very cramped, but clean.

The Village Inn was a terrific hotel right in the heart of Carmel---we parked the car and walked everywhere. It was comfortable, clean and well-managed, and the breakfast was amazing---delicious eggs, fruit, pastries---a huge buffet. The hotel was an incredible deal--- very well priced. I will definitely go back at the earliest opportunity!

Well all I can say is that this motel has a great location. Circa 1954 I'll bet it was nice, however it is just a place to hang your hat in a wonderful town. We got an internet rate of $79 and that was all it was worth. Clean, but worn out!

Among the best (tourist) locations in Carmel, maybe you shouldn't expect much of a motel. The free WiFi worked well, the rooms were clean, but not great or modern. We got a cheap walk in rate. At price I would use it again, at published rate I would look elsewhere...

“Old and tired” is the only way to describe the Carmel Village Inn. The images on its website are extremely misleading. The walls of the rooms are dirty and the paint is chipped; the furniture is old, scuffed and marred; the 1960-era aluminum window frames are corroded (when I went to open the window in the bedroom, the handle fell off in my hand); mirrors need to be re-silvered or, better yet, replaced. The “inn” is in desperate need of a major refurbishing. Demolition and reconstruction would serve it well. Breakfast was adequate but not more than that. Having said all that, the bed in our room was as good as it gets when it comes to comfort.

Ps: Though the inn bills itself as the Carmel Village Inn on its website and various booking sites, the large sign at the front of the property says only "Village Inn."

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms in the corner where the two wings of the motel join together (behind the staircase).

The flowers and gardens give a very favourable first impression of this motel. From the outside a desirable motel. Unfortunately our room was a little tired inside. That said the room was clean with a good sized bed. Free wifi.
A good breakfast choice.
Friendly staff.

Room Tip: A 2 floor motel and i would have thought there was little to be chosed between each room.
