Inn is in a good location and easy walking distance to Carmel and beach the main stretch of shops and restaurants. Free WiFi was available in the room. Parking was also available for free. Staff were nice and informative. Breakfast selection is limited but is delivered to your room each morning.

Great location too - walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. If you are looking for sun, travel 20 minutes in-land to...

We stopped off in Carmel for one night, and this was a great find. It wasn't too dear, the room and bed was fantastic, and a lovely surprise breakfast in the morning. Also got a great tip for a place to eat across the road from one of the staff. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to...

We stayed for one night in a Deluxe Guest room which was ideal for a family of four. Very friendly check-in and a great location, on site parking was nice and easy. The outdoor fire place was perfect for a nightcap (or two!) & the continental breakfast delivered to the door was a nice touch.

This is a lovely little place, perfect for a few nights in Carmel recently. Very close to the main town so ideal for us strolling home after dinner and drinks out.

Very comfortable and large rooms. Perfect location - only two blocks from the main business area of Carmel By The Sea. Walking distance to all shops and the beach. The room, while dated, was more than comfortable and very large and included a kitchenette. Fabulous restaurants and shops all extremely close by. An excellent choice.

This hotel had a great location and was very cute in a lovely town. I liked how they did breakfast by ordering the night before and having it delivered to your room. The one complaint on this is that if your in the smaller rooms in the front building there is no small breakfast table or anywhere you can easily...
