“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Spent 2 weeks traveling around California and this was the best accommodation. Spotlessly clean with a great pool and hot tub.We would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in this area.It is a little bit away from the tourist area of Carmel but this was not a major problem.

Great hotel. The rooms were clean and updated, the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Loved the towels, robe and the yummy soaps. Wifi was free. Breakfast was delicious. The happy hour buffet was well balanced - not just a bunch of fried food. There was fruit, steamed artichokes and soup, to name a few. We choose this hotel because it allowed dogs. We will definitely go back again.

I have been staying at Carmel Mission Inn for about 4 years now. I Absolutely Love this Inn. Its just off the main strip of Carmel. Overlooking Majestic mountains. 2 minutes from the beach. They have a wonderful Heated Lap pool and hot jacuzzi Tub. Sitting in the Seaside mist enjoying a wonderful swim is Amazing! The rooms are very nice and I can bring my Black Lab who loves it there as well. The Barnyard shopping Center is right behind this Inn. 5 or 6 Great restaurants to walk to and bring back or eat there. The Accomodations come with an amazing full course Breakfast! You have from 6:30 to 11:00 to eat an amazing breakfast at their restaurant Fuse. Eggs, bacon, fruit, breads, cereals, coffee in an amazing restaurant. Worth $20.00 Easily! Great Weekend or a whole week getaway!

Room Tip: I have had both dog friendly and non dog friendly. Both were Great!

This hotel, under new ownership, has totally redone the place and it is fantastic and terrific for families as well. We were there on a very cool Dec. weekend, but our grandkids swam in the pool and spa every day as the pool water is heated to a great temp! Some of us enjoyed the workout area. Many loved the full b'fast each morning and others of us loved the bar for cocktails at night. The room is very comfortable - nice to find two queen beds when you need them for a family of 4. Bathrooms have all been upgraded, tile is beautiful. The front desk couldn't have been kinder, more personable. Our daughter was married in Carmel that weekend and this hotel made us feel very special! Two very pretty shopping areas surround the hotel and are walkable, incl. a Starbucks!

Room Tip: Everyone at the wedding had a good room. My daughter and her husband had a suite and I have never s...

My room was totally comfy. The staff was wonderful, especially Jose at the front desk who never failed to greet me with a big smile. I loved that I could walk to a good choice of restaurants at the Barnyard. Everything was so convenient. I stayed there for six days and never had a single problem.

The seascape above the bed was a bit startling when I first walked into the room, but it really grew on me, adding to the wonderful atmosphere of the Big Sur coastline. I totally fell in love with this place. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The weekend breakfast was better than the average motel, with a buffet style setup. Once the weekend crowds thinned out, an excellent made to order breakfast was available from a great menu selection, The service couldn't have been better. The food was great. Choices included eggs Benedict, really great omelettes, etc

The location was very convenient just off the Cabrillo Hwy and a short distance from Point Lobos. The grounds were beautiful and all very pet friendly.

We stayed at Carmel Mission Inn for one night during our tour of the California coast in August. The room was very clean and the staff at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful! Definitely a great option if you don't mind being a few minutes out of town.

We had a good, clean, roomy room with a balcony, and all the comfort we needed. 5 minutes to downtown Carmel, 10 to Monterey, and then you're back and out of traffic with a convenient shopping center across the street, but without the feeling of being in a shopping center. The only downside for us was the in-room heating system. It was a wall unit run off of a thermostat, and when the thermostat called for more heat (it was February), the unit was pretty loud.
