“Clean, spacious and great location in Carmel-by-the-Sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We had a room with an ocean view and really enjoyed the balcony that was perfect for enjoying wine outdoors nightly. The fireplace was the perfect thing to take the chill off of the nights and added a lovely ambiance to our stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to all our needs. We borrowed wine glasses, a cork screw and other utensils for our own wine and cheese evenings. We loved that the room had nice robes, towels and a mini-fridge to store wine or snacks. The beds are new with fresh, clean bedding. Both the bed pillows and mattress were top quality - this is really important to feeling like a the furnishings are selected for comfort and luxury. The room was always promptly made up by housekeeping right after we left in the morning - and we found that the location centrally located to walk anywhere we wanted to go. Delores street has many great restaurants and wine tasting rooms within a block; we loved go to wine tastings so close! This inn provides a convenient parking area under the inn and this is free. Sergio and his staff were attentive and gracious to ask us how our stay was going on a daily basis. For a small property, we felt well cared for and pampered and at a very reasonable rate, compared to other inns that are far more costly. We would definitely return to Adobe Inn for our next stay to Carmel-by-the-Sea!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a distant ocean view and are a bit quieter than the village side rooms. All...

This was probably my 5th trip to Carmel and first time staying at the Adobe Inn. We were greated at check-in by a very pleasant young lady and were given room 36. Room was nice/clean and had a great balcony which we used everyday. The fireplace was also a great touch. We only had the continental breakfast 1 out of 3 days and it was very good. It is great that they actually deliver it to your room. In past trips to Carmel, parking is really a headache. None of the other hotels I have stayed at had provisions for parking and you are pretty much on your own to find a spot. The underground garage at the Adobe is very convenient and everything is within walking distance!!

We only stayed 1 night in the Adobe Inn. We had 2 large rooms, everything there what we needed. Little breakfast comes to your room in the morning. Carmel is a wonderful little village and we would have loved to stay another day.

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.
