The service and hospitality were fine. The room however was musty smelling. My clothes smelled musty. The rooms need air purifiers!

Thank you for reminding us how important it is to open up windows in rooms that have gone unoccupied for several days. This is especially true when they have been closed to keep out the unusally rainy weather that has plagued the Peninsula for the past several weeks.

We stayed at the Horizon Inn in February. I have to say I was disappointed. The breakfast in a basket was sorely lacking for a $185.00 room. First morning we had a very boring bagel choice and the second morning about as bad a "sweet-roll' as you'll ever find. And a small bowl of cereal for each of us but only one small carton of milk.No silverware or stir sticks to go with the coffee maker.
I was really annoyed when they did not honor the AAA discount that our daughter asked about when booking the room. Double check your confirmation to this place to be sure you have the correct amount quoted. They will not honor your AAA on check-out.
We stayed here a couple of years ago and found it to be fine, but with lots of other choices in town, closer to the beach and the village we will look elsewhere next time.

We always appreciate feedback on our continental breakfast basket. We have found that the bagels are one of our most requested items and as for the rest of the pastries we serve they are provided fresh daily from a local French bakery. In an effort to satisfy a wide variety of tastes we do make changes daily to our breakfast baskets. As for the request for a AAA discount, it is our hotel policy to honor AAA whenever possible and we make every effort to note those requests on the reservation when made at the time of booking.

Our Family lives here in Carmel and not all of can stay in the house. The Horizon Inn and Ocean View were great for our family to stay and enjoy Carmel. The staff went out of there way during Christmas to make sure we were happy . We travel with one dog,one two month old baby and one 3 year old,so rooms were very large. That basket to your room was great also for the little person in the morning. Thank you Horizon

The Horizon was a lucky find on arriving in the beautiful town of Carmel with nowhere booked in advance. Not too far from the restaurant area, beach and shops, the Inn offered a gorgeous facility with a plunge pool and a patio area. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was tastefully decorated with a large fire. Breakfast was delivered in a basket containing tea/coffee, juice, fruit and pasties. It was all very delicious and lovely to enjoy in the privacy of your room. Carmel was a quaint town with fabulous shops, restaurants and well kept properties & gardens. The beach was beautifully maintained and popular at the weekend and evenings with many families and friends meeting for BBQ's.

Affordable accommodations near excellent shopping and dining in Carmel-by-the Sea and a 15 minute walk to the ocean.

Our accommodation was very comfortable and cozy with all necessities provided including a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator.

Continental breakfast was delivered each morning in a basket with different treats each day.
