Horizon Inn & Ocean View Lodge
Ranked #9 of 25 Carmel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2011

We just came back from a weekend getaway to Carmel. We stayed at Horizon Inn/Annex property for two nights and definitely recommend this place. Here's why:

-Reasonably priced. We found a last minute deal on their website and saved 10%
-Location. Nice walk to downtown and the beach. Everyone complains about the hill but we are from San Francisco, the 'hills' in Carmel are nothing!
-Clean rooms & dog friendly Our room was clean and we had our dog with us. I believe the Annex is reserved for those with dogs; our room did not smell like dog nor could we find any trace or scent that a dog had stayed at our room previously
-Continental breakfast delivered at your door every morning.
-Friendly service
-Free wifi; had to log into work for 30 minutes on our last morning and had no issues with connectivity

The only thing we asked for is to upgrade the tv! It was small and it was really old. The city of Carmel closes at 9 so we spent our nights hanging out in our room and watching tv. I usually don't whine about hotel tvs but there was nowhere to go past 10 pm so I would expect that hotels around in Carmel would have nice tvs or offer movie channels.

Room Tip: Book on the website!

So glad you enjoyed your recent stay at the Annex. I especially like the photo of your 4 legged companion on the balcony enjoying the view! Rest assured I have looked into your comment about the TV's in the annex and agree that a larger screen is needed. We recently upgraded 5 deluxe rooms at the Horizon Inn to flat screens and I have requested that those larger TV's be put into the Annex. As for the channel line up, we get over 90+ channels with the upgraded Comcast service and for Carmel by the Sea that's big news. Thanks for taking the time to write in and send photos.

We booked a smaller room with two doubles. I worried that it would be too small and tight for our family. The room turned out to be very cozy but with extra room in the kitchen area to have some room away from the others. The beds were so cozy and comfortabe and also warm with the cooler weather. We enjoyed walking a round the village and did not find it difficult to walk walk back. We loved it and would highly recomend this wonderful Inn.

We had an enjoyable stay. It was a good walk to downtown but, far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Loved the breakfast in a basket!!!

Recently stayed at the Ocean View side. Our promised room(with an ocean view) was being worked on; the room we were given had no view. All old appliances; TV's did not work well. Large rooms, fairly clean. Internet connection is very poor. Very noisy as there is a large fleet of towtrucks on the same block and they run continuosly. Noisy street anyway. 4 blocks to Ocean; however, the trip back is all uphill. There must be better places to stay.

On our return trip to Carmel after 20 years we were delighted by our accommodation. We stayed for 5 nights in the Lodge in a spacious, comfortable and stylish appartment and then had 2 nights in a beautiful room in the Inn section with a lovely ocean view. The staff were friendly and helpful and we can wholeheartedly recommend both the Inn and the Lodge

Rented a suite with king size bed in seperate room, wood burning fireplace that has was set frest every day - we just needed to light a match! Wonderful location - could walk everywhere in Carmel. Very comfortable bed and bedding. A fabulous breakfast basket and newspaper left at the front door every morning! Each day we were excited to see our morning breakfast. Ver accomidating - we had a couple of 20 year old children that popped in and they were able to stay in room on queen size sleeper sofa that was comfortable and were able to bring there dog! General Manager - John - very gracious.
