“What a deal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We recently vacationed in CA traveling from San Francisco to LA on the Pacific Coast Highway. We had no reservations by choice and called the Mission Ranch Hotel for a room around mid-afternoon. They didn't have a room but the very helpful staff at the Mission Ranch Hotel informed us that they had another property in Carmel closer to downtown called the Homestead Inn which had availability and was running an introductory offer. They transferred me to the Homestead Inn and I booked our room for the evening. We arrived shortly after 5:00 PM. Our reservation was waiting for us and we were off to our 3rd floor room for $95.00! When we saw the nicely remodeled room we almost fainted! Our 3rd floor room was way more that we had expected. Mission style furniture with everything you would ask for at a 5 star hotel! We liked the town of Carmel and the Inn so well we stay an additional night!

Note: Not all of the rooms at the Homestead Inn have been remodeled. The next morning I asked the hotel desk to book another night. They had rooms but the room we were in was book already so we had to move to another room outside the main house. We were informed that the rooms outside the main house had not been remodeled. The room was very clean but very dated so plan accordingly. I would certainly stay in any room at the Homestead Inn but I would also request one of the remodeled room if it were available. A great value either way!

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd floor room if you don't mind the stairs! Great view and quite!

A great location as an easy walk to everything in Carmel. Very clean, very lovely, nice plantings. First class linens, a fireplace, and free breakfast at that famous Rancho place included. Entirely satisfied.

The location is fantastic. It is easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Carmel. Our room was big,very nicely furnished,and had a very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a nice glass shower and was spotless! The toiletries were a very nice touch.

My husband and I just "happened" to stumble upon this gem. We initially contacted Mission Ranch for a reservation, but they had no vacancy. They offered a room at their "sister location". We were thrilled with this place. Our room was spacious and airy. The bathroom was very large and wonderfully clean( I am somewhat of a "clean freak").

We opened the windows and enjoyed a very peaceful night's sleep.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance.

The price was very reasonable!!

If we are ever in Carmel again, this place will be on the list.

Well cared for and modern room with super large bathrooms. Fabulous walk to location, staff was very nice and helpful. We had dinner on the patio on the ranch and watched the sheep in the pasture and idealic setting of the bay. Fabulous food

The Homestead is on a side street in Carmel which increases it's appeal as far as I'm concerned. Our room had a double bed, a twin bed, a little roof top deck, a full kitchen including an oven and stove, bathroom, and dining area. The fixtures were lovely and old fashioned. There are nice little seating areas throughout the property and you are still walking distance to the beach or Ocean Ave for the shops.

One thing to be prepared for is there is no parking in front of the hotel. There's a loading zone and then you need to go into the more residential neighborhoods to park your car, but this really wasn't a hardship.

We were walk-ins. Paid full price. The rates are the lowest in Carmel which is still outrageous. But if you want a room in Carmel you're going to pay big bucks. You may want to see your room before you register. They are all completely different. This is an old house brought up to modern standards. The Homestead (that is the full name. Not Inn or B&B) is a Clint Eastwood Mission Ranch property and breakfast is a short car ride to Mission Ranch. The room was nicely furnished and clean with a very good shower.
The center of town is a short two block walk and there are lots of good restaurants. Enjoy Carmel.

Room Tip: There are at least three rooms that have access from inside as well as an outside door. Our room, 47...
