“had a great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

after all the reviews we were a bit hesitant on what to find. when we arrived we were given a room with a queen size bed but on the ground floor which we didn't like that much. after inquiring the manager changed us to room 28 without extra charge on the first floor with two queen size beds, terrace and a gas fire place. the room was quite large and we could get a glimpse through the trees of the Pacific. wifi was free and worked well in our room. as for the TV,yes it was awkwardly placed in a cupboard, but seriously, if you come to Carmel for watching TV..... the personnel was very friendly and accommodating, the breakfast was very decent and given the location (close to Ocean Ave, all decent restaurants were only 1 to 2 blocks away, and the beach just a couple of blocks down on 8th) this place merits four stars.

We paid $260 , and for that price we had no Internet in the room. Breakfast, which consisted of a muffins each and 2 slices of banana, 2 grapes and a tiny bowl of cereal, the all lot served in the room without a table to eat it on, just our knees !

Calling personally to book the Horizon Ocean View Suite - because we wanted an Ocean View - we paid a lot of money to look at the tops of trees and old dirty furniture!
What a HUGE disappointment. I even reconfirmed and made sure we had a view and the booking was good, and when I confronted the manager with the picture on the hotel web site he was more than sheepish, but it was too late to find another hotel.
Sheer misrepresentation, and a damper on our vacation.

We have been staying there for about four years. We don't usually make reservations. But too say that they have recently remodel is a bit much. And their bathrooms need to be re-done. The shower head squirted water rather than streaming. It is a lovely setting. Lots of flowers and a very friendly staff. They serve breakfast, but nothing special. We loved our room. And will stay again. Our little dog is always welcome.

We stayed in Carmel after driving the pacific coast highway. This is a beautiful little town very quaint and pretty, it had a great beach which unfortunately we could not enjoy as the weather was not great when we were there with sea mist. The Adobe Inn is in a great location in town for shops and restaurants very quiet with great under ground parking. Our room had a fire which we did use one night,(even in August) fridge coffee maker and sofa so it was a good size. The complimentary breakfast was ok coffee or tea cearel and a muffin, which was delivered to our room at a time of our convenience .

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor which I think was better than the first we could just say see th...

We have stayed here several times before and it has always been clean, quiet and comfortable. Our son and his wife also stayed here this time and enjoyed it there too. Sergio, the manager, always is helpful if we have requests. The location is great for walking to dinner or shopping and the underground parking is a great advantage since parking spots are hard to find there. Will definitely return. (The restaurant located on the property is unfortunately closed but there are many other places nearby.)

We stayed in a two bedroom suite which was quite blissful. It was quiet, well-furnished in a caramel and cream way, and big. The staff were friendly and charming, though absent on our arrival—Carmel is quite a casual place. Breakfast is complimentary but nothing to write home about apart from (for Australians, anyway) the choice of 2% fat milk and no fat milk. No fat milk??? What's in it? There are several nice restaurants in the street the inn is on, and we thoroughly enjoyed walking around afterwards. We would have liked to stay another night.
