I have been visiting Carmel and staying at The Green Lantern Inn since I was a child in the late 1960's. It has changed hands since those days, but has remained one of my favorite places in the world. The cottages are charming, clean, and homey, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the grounds are lovely and peaceful. The... More

Quaint, quiet, comfortable and good location. Don't expect luxury, but a clean room with a nice breakfast included and close to everything. We had a maintenance issue with our room and the manager was very responsive.

Highly recommend staying here. Lovely place to stay. The receptionist was so lovely. She helped us with maps of the area and she helped us by recommending where to eat on the night when we wanted to go for meal.

Charming and cosy bed&breakfast. Staff has been very friendly and Helpline. Our lodge was traditionally and nicely furnished. During the night the room cooled down quite a bit but there was a heater in place that heated us up quickly. The B&B is perfectly located between the marvelous beach and downtown Carmel.

Room was clean and quaint. Breakfast was fresh fruit, coffee, toast, and a frittata made to your order (pretty good). Perfect location, only a block away from downtown Carmel. Very friendly staff which is very important to me. Only downside was the stairs and uneven walk paths. Not recommended for the elderly. A little rustic, but that's Carmel!

Location is ideal, within short walking distance from everything in Carmel. We parked out car upon arrival and had not moved it until departure. Front desk and housekeeping was excellent. Breakfast was OK, but not what I would expect at B&B . You need to order your fritata upfront (the evening before) and you're only entitled to one helping :-)... More
