I found this place to be a very nice establishment. It is quite quain, yet upgraded enough to provide the required amenities. The bed was comfortable in the pillows were good, and I would say it was all exceptionally clean. The room had an actual window which opened including a balcony and the fireplace - it was all quite romantic.... More

We only wanted to be in Carmel for one night, and the hotels have 2-night minimums that they apparently drop around Wednesdays. So we picked this hotel based on location and decent reviews. Comfortable bed, spacious, quiet room despite facing Dolores Street. Toilet broke. Room worn around the edges. Breakfast doesn't get served until 8:30 -- we were up early... More

Great hotel in heart of Carmel Village. Rooms are large and comfortable with fireplace and adequate seating. Beds and bath very good. This is an older hotel but maintained well. Good parking on premises which is hard to find in the village hotels. A close easy walk to all village shopping and Resturant's.

The Adobe Inn is located near the central Carmel area and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Room was clean, fresh, and quiet. Bed was very comfortable. We slept with the sliding door to balcony open and had the sound of the ocean putting us to sleep. We arrived early and staff let us park our car in the... More

Our one night stay was delightful. Our children had a spacious room with a small bathroom connected to our larger room. The balconies were cute, the location to Ocean Ave was perfect and the in room breakfast (included) was better than expected. I would be happy to recommend this to others.

Just two blocks off Ocean Ave. and walking distance to the beach and Scenic Drive, the Adobe Inn suited us well. We spent three days in Carmel enjoying the shops, restaurants,17 Mile Drive, Point Lobos and Monterey. Our room was large and clean. Yes, it's a bit dated, but that is part of the charm of Carmel. Loved the breakfast... More

We stayed at Adobe Inn for a couple of nights in early autumn. This cozy little inn is located at the corner of Dolores and 8th st., a couple of blocks from Ocean avenue. Its location is ideal if you want to spend the day strolling around the town, visiting the cute little artsy shops doing some shopping, tasting wine... More

This weekend I stayed at the Adobe Inn. Although the weather didn't permit it I was happy to see that the swimming pool was nice and clean. I was also very happy that they were able to make accommodations for me to pick up my key after hours. I would also like to add that the room was very nice... More

Nice location in the middle of the little art galleries, shops and restaurants. Clean room. Roomy. Nice garden like setting. The continental breakfast is delivered to your room. You can walk about 7 blocks to the ocean. The Sunset Center (performing arts venue ) is 2 blocks away. Each room has a little patio with table and chairs.

Please avoid if possible. The rooms have not been updated in nearly 30 years and it looks and smells like it. Everything is worn out and cruddy. The price on the other hand was outrageous and overpriced. It put this property as a DO NOT STAY.
