The hubs and I stayed here for the first time just recently. We have a great sized room with mountain views. Ocean view rooms could be booked but the cost of the mountain view room was more in line with the experience we wanted to have, and we knew we'd be walking to the beach every day so didn't need an ocean view (plus we live at the ocean and therefore were happy with the mountain view, which you can see from the pic was beautiful).
We had a king size bed with a fireplace, and a small patio. The room was a really nice size and felt like a studio apartment. There was a coffee station area that included a refrigerator microwave. There were plates and glasses available in the cabinets in the coffee station.
There was a full size couch, as well as a table with chairs for dining. On the patio, there was a small table to set down a book/beverage, with 2 patio chairs.
The bathroom was adequate for our needs. Not spa like but we weren't expecting that so it was all good.
We both really liked the accommodations and would stay here again, and also would recommend to others. If you're expecting high end finishes, this would not be the place for you. But if you value space and comfort over glitz, you'll be good with this property. After all, it's the outside beauty that is the draw for the area.

Room tip: I would recommend rooms upstairs because that was the experience that we had and we were happy with that.

We rented Cottage 205 and loved the 1940's feel: modern yet retro kitchen, pine floors, large fireplace, historic feel. The bed was comfortable, the front desk helpful, the town with Bruno's market, restaurants, galleries, shops, and the beach all within walking distance. The breakfast basket complete with daily paper was charming - such a delightful way to start the day. I would recommend new offerings for breakfast to contemporize with less sugary options such as plain vs sugary fruit premixed yogurt and a mix of pastries (ie, some plain such as croissant) would've been appreciated. Even the cereal was sugary. The keurig coffee was plentiful and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our hideaway which felt private and contained. Well run and well maintained, we would recommend Horizon and definitely consider another visit. Front desk was very helpful booking and with recommendations.

My husband and I stay in Carmel a couple of times a year and have looked for a reasonably priced option with good views within the little town of Carmel. I think we've finally found a contender! This inn is up on a hill and the walk to and from Ocean Ave is not for everyone but it worked well for us. I wouldn't recommend doing it in heels. Our room had a fire place, fridge, microwave, robes, and a big balcony with a fantastic view. The check-in process was a breeze, plenty of free parking was available, and a little basket of breakfast goodies and a newspaper arrived each morning. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the area was pretty quiet, except for the guy who would start up his diesel pickup truck each morning and let it idle for 20 minutes. We look forward to coming back to stay here again.

The rooms were enchanting. Loved the decor and our balcony looking out onto the streets of Carmel with a tiny glimpse of the sea. Bed very comfortable, robes provided with some of the rooms Wolfgang Puck coffee provided in the room.and only the best brand of personal amenities provided.
The most wonderful and unexpected treat was having the complimentary breakfast and newspaper delivered to our door in a picnic basket.
The location was superb and steps from restaurants, within walking distance to downtown and the beach. Front desk service was stellar and beyond helpful with driving directions . Like I said loved, loved this hotel.

Lovely hotel, perfectly located within Carmel - walkable distance to lovely restaurants not too far from main ocean avenue drag either also easy access to highway and 17 mile drive.
Lovely room with cute touch of a breakfast basket delivered to your door in the morning. We stayed in the economy room which was great value for money - spacious and felt super private as over by the more expensive lodges and had a lovely balcony that looked out to the sea - perfect to sit out watching the sunset with a glass of wine from local deli Bruno's (do amazing sandwiches to take out perfect for a picnic on 17 mile drive and we also took one for our long drive down to Santa Barbara). Would definitely recommend stay at the Horizon Inn for anyone visiting Carmel!

NOTE: if you are visiting carmel in March Highway 1 is closed between Ragged Edge and Bixby Bridge (so whole coast through Big Sur) due to landslide and cracked bridge - if you are driving to/from Santa Barbara/LA check you route first !
