“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

My wife and I came here March 14th for the weekend on our honeymoon. We stayed in the Treetop room with a balcony looking out over a beautiful tree. The room was very nice and spacious with a large very well done bathroom. Separate shower and bathtub helped give even more space. The breakfast every morning was a nice mix of yogurt, oatmeal, fresh pastries, quiche, fruits, etc.. The best part of the experience was the service, which from every person we met was simply outstanding!! If you are coming thru Carmel and need a place to stay, this Inn should be at the top of your list.

We stayed at this lovely B&B in March 2014 for 2 nights and had a very enjoyable visit. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. There is a common room in the main building where they serve breakfast (and treats throughout the whole day at no extra charge) and we had breakfast both mornings we stayed, the home made almond croissants are to die for 'yum'. We are from Australia so staying Carmel Country Inn was a real treat for us being dog lovers we were amazed at how welcome dogs are at this B&B. Apparently most of Carmel's B&Bs are dog friendly very difficult to find in Australia.

The accommodation is clean and roomy and the beds are very comfortable. We had a 1 bedroom unit with a fireplace. The B&B is situated at a bottom of a hill so it's an up the hill walk to get to the downtown area which is only 5-10min stroll away.....If you have mobility issues, take the car!

No need to look at any other place in Carmel - if we visit again we'll definitely stay at Carmel Country Inn again.

Carmel Country Inn is the quintessential seaside inn. It's the place you stayed at with your parents growing up.

The inn is located just steps from Carmel's restaurant and shopping center and the beach. Perfect location.

Carmel and the Carmel Country Inn are easily the most dog friendly places I've ever been.

The staff at the Inn were sweet and professional. The office was stocked with fresh baked cookies and lemonade. The Inn staff encouraged me to take some cookies back to my room to enjoy. The inn-keeper said she would just, bake more!

We had wine and a cheese plate waiting for us when we checked in. I forget the cost, but it was reasonable. In fact, over our weekend we ordered two more bottles.

We stayed in room #12. It was comfy and sweetly appointed. The bathroom was nice and I really enjoyed the whirlpool tub. I should mention that I also really liked the soap/shampoo/lotion selection in the bathroom. Good quality stuff and smelled great. Another great aspect to the room was the Dutch door. Perfect choice and completely fitting.

My sole complaint about Carmel Country Inn is that I had to leave. But I'll be back, and I encourage you to visit soon, too.

As far as B&B's go in the Carmel area, this one is about 5 blocks from the heart of the business district and a little further from the beach. Having said that it is very quiet and a little exercise was good. The accommodations were excellent and the staff very helpful. I would return in the future.

Room Tip: All are great; two couples or family fit nicely in 2br units; and one couple fits in all the rest.

I have stayed at this Inn many times and always enjoy the visit. This time the staff helped my boyfriend order flowers for me for Valentine's Day so they were right at our door that morning! The breakfast is great and the staff is always so helpful with advice on restaurants and things to do. Really enjoyed the large bathtub in our room this time and the wonderful fireplace. Absolutely recommend this as a great place to stay while in Carmel!

Room Tip: Love the two bedroom suites when traveling with a group but this time had the King Studio which was...

This property was great. Fantastic location, super cute, great room. Amazing breakfast. Very friendly people. Champagne that I pre-ordered was Chandon and I was only charged $25. Overall absolutely fantastic time. The only one slight thing that I would mention is the the quilt bedding smelled a little musty. But that didn't really bother us! Everything else more than made up for it!

We spent two nights here after a change of plans and booked only a few days before arrival using Trip Advisor reviews as the recommendation. It was lovely on arrival to find our room had been upgraded. Our two bedroom unit was large and spacious with two gorgeous bathrooms. The unit was well equipped and immaculately clean.

From the generous afternoon teas to the lovely breakfast in the main building, it was a warm and inviting environment. The host was really friendly and helpful.

The Inn offers everything from beach towels to balls for your dog and strollers! Whilst we didn't have a dog (just two kids) with us, they loved petting the canine guests and when we left, the kids were given a ball to bring home to their dog!

Just a lovely place to stay and enjoy the sights, restaurants and shopping of Carmel.
