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.

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.

BikersThe Sea Otter Classic is the world’s premier cycling festival that is held annually on the Monterey Peninsula. Unlike other bicycling events, the Sea Otter Classic is “a celebration of cycling” where biking enthusiasts of all ages and abilities come together to revel in all things bicycle. While the event is primarily billed as a festival, there are plenty of races to be had, ranging from mountain and road bike races to cyclocross races. Most races take place at Laguna Seca, but some take place on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property, specifically Fort Ord National Monument.

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.

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.
