“Clean, Quaint, Local Inn!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Great Inn, right downtown, with large, nicely decorated rooms. Clean and quaint with a nice little breakfast delivered right to your room! Rooms are very bright and well lit. Our room had a fireplace which was a nice touch (although we had incredibly nice weather and didn't use it). Perfect location downtown, you can walk anywhere you need to go, especially nice if you are seeing a performance at the Sunset Center (about a block away). Only a couple of minor issues, the fireplace was somewhat noisy (made a humming sound) even when not in use and the mattress and pillows could have been a bit plusher (mattress was on the hard side and no choice in pillows). I know, minor issues, I guess I'm use to staying at larger hotels that have pillow top mattresses and pillow choices. One Very Positive note (if you are a smoker) is that the Inn is SMOKER FRIENDLY! The rooms are 'no smoking', but there are ashtrays in the open/common areas outside the rooms, a VERY PLEASANT surprise with all the 'smoke hater' hotels now in operation that don't allow any smoking on their property!

Room Tip: The third floor is the top floor so you don't need to worry about noisy neighbors above you. I...

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! We do have special mattresses but from what we have found in all of our travels, there is no one single mattress that is a good fit for everyone (we have received a lot of great feedback on ours but I like your suggestion about the pillows and having some different types available). Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

The staff was great, told us all we need to know about the Monterey Peninsula. The rooms were clean and the complimentary breakfast was a plus. It is centrally located so walking around was easy breezy! The bed was VERY big and comfortable. This will be my go to place in Carmel.

We will come back, if you stay here you will find great service in a great location in Carmel.

We have stayed at the Coachman Inn for over 15 years now. Great location, don't have to worry about parking. Friendly owners and staff. Housekeeping is fantastic. Clean and spottless rooms. They have updated the whole place a few years ago. Very dog friendly!!!
It's our go to place in Carmel.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the doggie rooms. They are located behind the Jacuzzi tower area. We love...

I highly recommend Coachman Inn. It's located just a couple blocks from Ocean Avenue and all the great shops in Carmel by the Sea. Rates are affordable at under $150.00 including a light breakfast. Believe me, if my wife likes this inn you will too.

Thank you for your kind review! We love inns too - it depends on what someone traveling to the area is looking for. If you want a large hotel with 24-hr room service, a huge business center, and hundreds of rooms spread across dozens of floors, we are not for you. But if you want to experience Carmel like a local and enjoy a clean, comfortable, quaint room with modern amenities and a friendly staff, please give us a try : )

Quaint is the perfect word to describe the Coachman's Inn. The rooms are spotless (rugs could be replaced). There are fireplaces in every room along with a large flat screen tv. Towels are snowy white and the king size bed was comfortable. This is not your 500 room monstrous ultra modern hotel. It's an Inn quaint with a great staff. Can't beat the location or the price.

Thank you for your kind review! We are in the process of replacing some of our carpeting (and always do our best to spot treat any problem areas). Thank you for appreciating us for who we are - not a big, brass and glass hotel but a friendly,quaint place to stay right in downtown.

Stayed over for one night on our way to Santa Barbara. Had a lovely stay. Great room that was spacious and clean, loved the fireplace and the running theme throughout the establishment. The cookies offered at 5pm are gorgeous and the breakfast is so cute. We arrived at 8pm after a long day and were checked in by a lovely lady who really went out of her way to give us maps and directions and have us our breakfast basket early (the night before) seeing as we were leaving so early the next day. Would love to stay again and would certain recommend it!!! Best service we received all holiday!

Note to those staying that the reception is only open from 8am until 9pm most days so if you will be arriving late this may cause a problem. We were lucky to arrive at 8pm and the reception was still open.

Thank you for your kind review. Our owners have spent a lot of time shopping for just the right items for all of the rooms so that our theme ties in throughout the property. It's a labor of love - after all, who doesn't love to shop for fabrics and furnishings! We have had a couple of comments lately about our 9 AM closure. During the reservations process, we will inquire to your arrival time. If you do end up being later than 9 PM, we have an easy procedure in place to provide your keys, breakfast information, maps etc....everything you would receive when the desk is open. In the case of an emergency or any confusion, we do have a manager on duty 24 hours a day (we want to make sure you are well taken care of : ) We hope you come back and see us again sometime soon!

Karen,
