Bedroom at Carmel Mission Inn“Ok, so this hotel/motel is not in Carmel-by-the-sea, but once you get over that fact and as long as you have a car, you can enjoy this 4 star property and the fact that you are not paying twice the price to be in a less modern and comfortable property in the seafront village. We loved our large room with king-size bed and lovely bed linen. The bathroom was excellent and also large. We did not make use of the heated outdoor pool and hot tub, but other people did.

Flowers in the garden of Carmel Mission InnWe stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn Thanksgiving night through the weekend for a wedding. Upon check in we had to provide the ID for the person who’s card held the room even though that wasn’t the card that we were paying for the stay with. It wasn’t a problem as we were both there however I’ve never been asked for this before and would have been quite put out had someone reserved the room and not been with us at check in.

View of Point LobosThe check-in process was fast and smooth. The desk clerk was polite and informative. Our room was large and brightly decorated. The heat system was quiet and worked great. There was a large bench on one end of the room which was a wonderful space for our belongings. Especially for a family of four. The beds and pillows were clean and comfortable and all the furniture was updated.

Great Winter Getaway

Carmel Mission Inn PoolMy fiancé and I took our infant on his first road trip – a winter getaway to Carmel. What a memorable and special time we had in the gorgeous Carmel Mission Inn! The room was spotless, beautifully appointed, comfortable and just totally wonderful – especially the patio which overlooked the pool area. A small refrigerator was provided, which was so helpful, in keeping bottles and baby food chilled until the baby was ready for them.

Happily surprised with this hotel. Our $150 rate seemed too good to be true, but so happy we stayed.
Rooms are nice sized, good amenities, all modern comforts. We had a window facing the courtyard, great view.
The grounds are very nice, outdoor dining, fire pit, gardens, and pool area.

Amazing Motel

A really friendly greeting at reception was efficient and helpful, as were all the staff at the Carmel Mission Inn. Really good value in such a beautiful part of the world. The rooms are massive, the size you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The fire pit in the outdoor terrace is a novel idea, and contributes to the welcome. The room was fully equipped with iPod dock, good TV, power sockets (don’t miss the ones on top the headboard), iron, tea and coffee making facilities. Gorgeous bathroom as well with Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

I stayed here for a few nights 3 weeks ago. The hotel itself sits within beautiful grounds although it is not actually in Carmel by the Sea. It is a 20 minute walk to the town. Parking in the town can be a bit problematic or perhaps it was just when I was there.

Enjoyed our stay and can not wait to return!

Lovely hotel, with very nice rooms, large clean bathrooms, and great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi isn’t great, so if you don’t have 3G, you may have to go to the lobby to get service . We had a pool side room on the 3rd floor with a huge porch. This place was a real find.
