My wife and I decided to get away for her birthday and take our dog with us. We decided on Carmel since we had heard it was very dog friendly. This turned out to be absolutely true! The Inn is right next to the Barn Yard which is host to many restaurants which have outdoor seating that allows dogs. We ate and drank in that area for the two nights we were out.

Ocean Ave. isn't walking distance (well it might be but it's about 2 miles away). We caught a local cab company there and back. Wandered around and then came back to home base.

Main downside was the speed of the free Wifi... We got a good signal but it was pretty slow, trying to stream a video from youtube was pretty painful. Pages loaded slow in general.

Can't be beat in the area for price. Great redone rooms, with fab bath products, pet friendly, beautiful grounds. One mile from Ocean Avenue and across the street from dog friendly Crossroads shopping center. Have stayed in supposed five star luxury hotels with far less thought out rooms, lighting, and bathrooms. Instead of those small bottles of shampoo most places give you they have large full size high end L'Occitane products. Lovely pool with clean nice patio furniture as well. Great bedding and reading lights. Add to that free parking and free Internet while 5 star properties continue to charge for both why stay anywhere else?

Overall our experience was good. This INN is a motel. I think Inn might be misleading. It's clean and updated and the service was great. There two negatives to the Mission Inn. One, the walls are so thin you can hear people in other rooms pee through the walls. Two, the location is not in walking distance to Carmel proper or the beach. I must have missed this in my research because I would not have chosen this hotel had I known it was on the other side of HWY 1. The positives included the option to have two beds. I was traveling with my Mom for her birthday and I found many Carmel hotels only had suites. It is also within walking distance to the Barnyard which to our surprise had a couple of good restaurants and cute shops. We would have preferred to be in Carmel but the Barnyard was a nice compromise.

I was traveling from Huntington Beach with my sister and our two Golden Retrievers and we were all pretty tired after the long drive. We pulled up to the hotel and were quickly checked in by the very friendly staff who quickly gave us our keys and an overview of the amenities. There was plenty of parking (right outside our door!) and we all piled into the room...it was perfect!! It was clean and cozy and there was plenty of room for each of the dog beds. Although the pool and gym were off limits to our furry friends (though they did once try to make their way to the pool!), we did enjoy the beautiful patio and sitting around the fire pit. We stayed for two nights, slept great (beds were very comfortable!) and spent the days roaming around Carmel. Everything is close to the hotel...including a really charming little "village" with cute shops and great food that backs up to the hotel's parking lot (and very dog friendly). We will definitely be going back to the Carmel Mission Inn again in the near future!

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We have a limited number of pet friendly rooms and we are please you could take advantage of their convenient location. The completion of the nearby walking trail will be a great amenity for dog lovers and walkers alike. The patio with fire pit also provide a great relaxing area. We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again. Please remember to contact the hotel directly for the best rates and service.

We had a good time, the room was big for 4 and plenty of space for luggage (since we were travelling from Europe). Clean and easy access and parking. We loved Breakfast at the 'From Scratch' , walking distance from the rooms.
