The initial contact with the office staff was vert curtious and helpful. The webside provided addtitional information about the area, which was also helpful. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. The balcony and view made the stay more pleasant. We will be back!

Room Tip: ask about room options when making reservations

Me and my husband took a 3 night trip to Carmel and wanted a room with a fireplace and Jacuzzi. We got that and more with the Horizon Inn. From the friendly welcome at check-inn to the noon checkout (nice that it isn't earlier) we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. Plenty of parking and an easy walk to our beautiful room. We walked in to a spotless room w/ a bed with tons of comfortable looking pillows, and great view, separate bathroom from the jacuzzi, spacious closet and LARGE patio. The fireplace was able to be seen from all parts of the room, even the private alcove jacuzzi! The bath salts were an added bonus. We had a peaceful nights sleep on some of the best bedding and most comfortable beds I have ever had in a hotel (and I have stayed at many!) and then woke to a cute breakfast basket with pastries, cereal, juices and a morning paper. Overall, it was a memorable, comfortable and romantic few days and we look forward to making the trip to Carmel every once and while from San Francisco for our stay in room 115!

Room Tip: AAA rate got us a great discount, the upgrade to a jacuzzi room is worth it

I like to stay at places with ocean view. This was one of few places with an ocean view in Carmel, so we stayed here. One disappointing thing was that you can hardly see the ocean, if fog creeps in. Of course, this happens so often in Carmel. The only time we could see ocean was in the morning. Next time, I will stay closer to the ocean, so I can see the water in the evening time.

The inn was well taken care of. We loved the hot spa because it was kind of cold, when we were there. The breakfast was not super fancy but it is nice they bring it right to your door.

My friend and I decided to take a "Mommy's Retreat" and go to Carmel for two nights and three days. We stayed at the Horizon Inn and were SO pleased with our choice! This hotel is VERY clean and quiet. The room seemed to have been recently remodeled. The rooms are even nicer in person than the pictures you see on the computer. We originally had booked a first floor room with no balcony or view. When we arrived we asked to see a room upstairs with a view. We decided to upgrade to an ocean view room with a balcony and we are so glad we did. It was definitely worth the extra money. While we were there we stopped by the Lamplighter Inn and Candlelight Inn to compare, and we both agreed that the Horizon Inn was a much nicer place to stay. We loved the continental breakfast basket and newspaper that were delivered to our room each morning! I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Use AAA for discount. Get an upstairs room with ocean view. Definitely worth the extra money.

Mommy's Retreat, Girl's Getaway, Back to School Reward...whatever you call it they make the best trips, don't they! The upstairs rooms with the ocean view, FP and sitting area make the perfect spot to kick back and catch up and the fact that they can accommodate up to 4 people makes it great to share with more than one friend. I am such a believer in this type of getaway for sanity and rejuvenation of the spirit...I fully intend to offer gals (and guys) the opportunity to take one of these types of trips in September so maybe you'll be ready to do it again!
