“great location”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had a wonderful time with the family. Can walk everywhere you need and they have a garage to park the car indoors which is great in Carmel. Having the balcony to set out and enjoy the day was wonderful and very nice for the children.

The staff at Adobe were fantastic. Friendly and responsive to requests. You felt instantly at home when you got to the room which was a good size, had a lovely balcony looking towards the ocean and to top it all a roaring log fire. Centrally located for the middle of Carmel.

We stayed two years ago and returned recently, but I'm afraid the place has gone somewhat downhill. Our room was spacious and quiet, but there were so many maintenance issues that we're not inclined to return. The worst problem was the hot water, which worked intermittently. One of the room keys didn't work (and, by the way, these are the old fashioned metal keys, which at best aren't as secure as the plastic cards.) The fireplace didn't work - and in Carmel it's nice to take the chill off in the morning, even in July. There was a burned out light bulb, and the refrigerator could not be opened without the door hitting the shelf.

Adding to the disappointment was the fact that the Adobe Inn's outstanding restaurant and bar are now closed. The hotel still delivers a small breakfast to the room, but it is really minimal - a sweet muffin, granola, and fruit.

I'll be watching further reviews to see if the hotel's maintenance improves. If so, this could yet be a decent value for pricey Carmel.

We stayed at the Adobe Inn in Carmel. What a great experience! Spacious room with a fireplace, large bathroom and dressing area. Even received complimentary continental breakfast. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend, and we would definitely stay there again.

My wife ,son and I have just returned from a trip to California where we drove from LA to San Francisco and we decided to stay in Carmel for a couple of days. A friend suggested the Adobe Inn as a central place to stay in Carmel. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with everything that we needed including secure underground parking .
The Adobe Inn was in a great location for Carmels shops and also to visit Monterey and Pebble Beach .The manager Sergio was also very friendly and helpful in sorting out our booking at very short notice and advising us on where to go and eat and what to do.
If your stopping in Carmel this is a very good option.

Room Tip: Our 2 bedroom room was 31 which had excellent facilities and 2 balconies.

You really can't get better than this in Carmel. The location is just a couple blocks from the main street (Ocean) and a few more to the beach, yet it's out of the way just enough to afford quiet and peaceful stays. With its underground parking, you get the best of both worlds in that you automatically get scarce-as-hens-teeth parking spots in a secure and close location.

And the room!! My wife and I have stayed in some very memorable rooms in our world travels, but this room was right there near the top. The king-bed and pillows were fantastic, we had a working fireplace (gas, not logs, which was good since my wife has Asthma), very comfortable seating area, and an outside porch. I had initially thought that our room's location near the pool was going to be intrusive, but that was NOT the case at all. Our "included" breakfast was served to our room (you place your order the night before), so we essentially had a "room service" start to our day included with the price. Very thoughtful.

Our family of 5 ( incl 2 teens & a 9 yr old), enjoyed a wonderful stay at this beautifully quaint and central hotel. Staff were all very friendly and we received a very warm welcome on arrival with cookies and chocolates in our room! We loved the Continental breakfast delivered to our room each morning and it was always fresh, tasty and absolutely adequate. It was so lovely to be able to sit and eat it in our pj's! We had a 2 roomed suite and the beds were very comfy, the Wifi worked perfectly and we had plenty of space. My only complaint was that the shower in one of the bathrooms wasn't working very well. We loved the centrality of this hotel to shops, galleries and the fantastic restaurants of Carmel. There isn't a bar or restaurant on site, however there is no shortage of great bars and restaurants a short walk away so it didnt matter to us. We would return to the Adobe Inn if we are lucky enough to return to beautiful Carmel.

Room Tip: The 2 bed suite is the one to go for.
