Mount Shasta, California
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Well, we were'nt expecting alot. The room smelled of Febreze, but we had a balcony with a view of the ocean in Room 7. That, coupled with being doggie friendly, was the good part. The breakfast basket is delivered with a loud rap on the door around 8:30am. Tropicana OJ with fruit and yogurt, and some mediocre pastry. In-room coffee...

Dear Guest, Ouch! The low rating you provided our property certainly doesn’t match the overwhelmingly good comments left by other guests. This leaves us a bit concerned that we did not meet your expectations. While we do appreciate all reviews, we would like to respond to your comments so that others get a true perspective. Most guests would fully appreciate...

Just spent 3 nights at the monte verde during the Christmas week. We were traveling with 2 very large dogs. We had room 7 which is on the 2nd floor with a partial ocean view. The room is very small but it has a balcony. The combination of the balcony and the nice weather saved us because we were able...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased to hear that you found our breakfast basket to be "above average" as we try very hard to provide top quality products such as: fresh locally made pastries, a variety of fresh seasonal fruit, quality yogurt and natural juices for our guests. This healthy breakfast option was never intended...

We stayed in room #8 for 5 wonderful relaxing nights! The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and well kept! The location is absolutely ideal. The daily breakfast basket delivered to our door each morning was loaded with fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, juice and delicious pastries. The complimentary California wine on arrival was a nice touch. Many...

I've been going to Carmel for thirty years and the Monte Verde Inn is by far the best. 1/2 block to Ocean Ave, four blocks to the beach and a friendly, helpful staff. Dogs are welcome and they provided my pooch, Tex, w/treats, blankets, bowls, etc. The Ocean View Condo is amazing: completely renovated w/full kitchen, ice maker, flat screen...

My husband and I planned a romantic long weekend away to San Francisco and Carmel-by-the-sea in August 2011.
