We have been going to The Mission Ranch since Clint reopened it during the 1980s. I think that we have stayed in every room except The Honeymoon Cottage. The rooms are always clean and comfortable...at any price level. The view from The Meadow View rooms is great. The grounds are beautiful! Watching the sheep is very relaxing. Carmel is a...

We stayed in room 40 last night and enjoyed the view of the ranch (with sheep) along with the backdrop of the ocean. Brunch was delicious, and the staff very pleasant. We will stay here again. We booked the same day and managed to get a room (probably due to the rain scaring off visitors).

We had a great time at the Mission Ranch Inn at the end of January. Spent two nights there prior to driving up to SF. Even though we got the impression that the place leans a bit older, they were very accommodating. In particular we really enjoyed renting the Bunkhouse- it was perfect for a toddler. Perfectly nice but in...

My husband and I always stay at the Mission Ranch in Carmel when we are in the area for a weekend of relaxation. The cottages and rooms are luxurious,very charming, warm and enveloping. The grounds and environment are beautiful with the Pacific Ocean, the open green meadow,beds of flowers,tall trees and the rolling fog. The sunsets are glorious over the...

Food was fair, drinks were weak, very loud, not worth the $. We were not seated, found a table on our own and were told we couldn't sit there and reminded to take our buzzer, felt like we were at IHOP. Met friends, asked for a quite table so we could talk, didn't happen. LOUD!!! View of sheep and ocean,...

This is a quaint place in a peaceful setting, hosted by very friendly service staff. The complimentary breakfast was awesome and well-staffed. Shower was spectacular due to very high water pressure from being located in a valley. The grounds are beautiful and fun to walk around. The highlight of our visit was the nightly sing-a-long at the piano bar which...

Wonderful rustic restored buildings. Stayed in 2 separate rooms and staff moved our belongings. Rooms and beds were comfortable and staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Lovely quiet setting and the restaurant meals are delicious.

Wonderful ranch with a panoramic view of Monterey. You wake up to see sheeps grazing in the ranch with deers walking into the ranch. Truly magical....feels like you are back to be one with Nature. The rooms are very different to a typical * Star hotel with old fashioned beds and furniture's. Try to get in there before 5pm to...

My brother and sister-in-law have been coming here for years and asked us to join them. What a magical 'American' place to visit. Generous staff with an opportunity to walk among the beautiful 'Hansel and Gretel' exotic homes at Carmel by the sea. This is a beautiful resort that you can only dream about. The piano bar has all the...
