“Nice hotel”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The Carmel Mission Inn is a nice place to stay. We were there for two nights and the staff was very attentive. This is an old holiday inn. We stayed on the 4th floor with a balcony that faced the sunset,that was beautiful. The price was right and it was close to the coast for hiking. We did not use the pool or hot tub, but they looked very nice. No complaints.

Room Tip: Get room with a bacony.

Very comfortable homey place with nice rooms and good simple food. When we were there, there were great sheep in the meadow - not sure they're still there. Rooms vary so make sure you get all the particulars. Good solid American place to stay.

This was a very comfortable hotel. I loved the hot tub, especially after a day of hiking in nearby Point Lobos. Easy access to lots of great sight seeing and hiking, walking distance to cafes for breakfast.

Caring helpful staff, great rooms, beautiful gardens and excellent breakfast.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Can't praise this hotel enough.

P.S. don't forget to take a look at the Barnyard shops and restaurants at the rear.

We said in Carmel itself for 2 days, which was very nice and had passed the Mission Inn on our way to Big Sur. Motel is adjacent to the Crossways shopping and centre and at first does not appear o appealing compare with the Carmel centre location, however looks can be deceptive ad we found the Inn very comfortable and a great place to stay either if you can not find a location in town or you want a bigger bang for your buck. We loved the welcome from the front desk, we liked our room which was large, clean and had all the facilities we wanted. The pool and the jacuzzi was a lovely surprise as was happy hour, complimentary horse d'oeuvre and our cocktail drink. We were celebrating my birthday so all these nice touches made of stay even more special. We had the full buffet breakfast option as well which finished or one night stay here at the Mission Inn. We ate at Barnyards, Bahamas Steakhouse, situated just behind the Inn, that was great, try the rice bowls great vle for money at $15 dollars and very filling.

Room Tip: Try to get a pool view and staying on the fourth floor these rooms have balconies too

The only deficit is that this hotel is a five minute drive from downtown Carmel. Otherwise, it is very fine. Stylish, well-maintained, and run by a pleasant staff. They have a four star self concept but price it lower than an average business hotel/Marriott Courtyard. Free cocktails and a good breakfast, too.

Lovely hotel, with very nice rooms, large clean bathrooms, and great location.Staff was very friendly and helpful. WiFi isn't great, so if you don't have 3G, you may have to go to the lobby to get service . We had a pool side room on the 3rd floor with a huge porch. This place was a real find.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms over looking the pool with porches are the best
