I was hesitant to book at this property but I’m SO GLAD I did! I’m from Boston traveling down the PCH and am very picky about my lodgings. This property was great! I stayed in Room 101, two queen beds, next to the check in office. The room was pristine and clean. It had absolutely NO “musty” smell that I read in previous reviews. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The fireplace worked. The bathroom was clean and shower water pressure good. The best part was off street parking! The two attendants at check in were awesome! They were two men who were super helpful! Gave us a map of Carmel, told us where the local water hole was (because after being touristy all day, we wanted to relax with locals), and they were all smiles! Thanks gentlemen! The breakfast room was crowded when we got there, but the food was pretty good (eggs, sausage, waffles, pastries, toast, yogurt, juices). The property is next door to the local market called Bruno’s. It has anything last minute for your trip. Carmel by the Sea is small, so everything is walking distance. Literally everything. There are great restaurants, coffee shops, and galleries! I will definitely stay here again!

in a great location, beautiful property with a large room and fireplace. The bed was fantastic and the property and room were very clean. The staff were also great, very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast is one of the best when it comes to "free breakfast."

Loved the ease of check in and room size. Great location walk to anything and deli store right next hotel to get misc items might have left at home. Only thing I was sad about is I swim in mornings and pool was closed for maintenance during my stay.

Cute hotel

This hotel was perfectly located to the little shops, just two blocks. We had a great room with a fireplace! Would stay here again. We booked on Travelocity.

Carmel is unique and "old" here is good.

Pros: Location
Cons: Parking is a little cramped but there is no room to improve. Once parked you can see most everything on foot.
Location: Carmel is primarily a quaint village with a "downtown" that is primarily shops, restaurants, and art galleries. The inn is very near to all of this.
The inn is an older property but almost everything in Carmel is old. The room is rather small but is quite adequate to include a king-sized bed. Shower tub is on the small side but also quite adequate. The location is very good as it is very close to downtown. This would be an excellent place to stay for someone who is new to Carmel and who quickly learns that one can see most of the city on foot. Breakfast was quite adequate and served in a rather large space. We would stay there again.
