Good Value In Carmel

Bob Buescher - Thursday, November 10, 2011

This hotel offers beautiful, clean, and comfortable accommodations in a great location for a fair price. We had to awake at the crack of dawn so we did not get to try the breakfast. Will do so next time. I would certainly call here first next time I'm in the area.  read more...

Point Lobos right next to the Inn

Kentyn Reynolds - Wednesday, August 24, 2011

I am not sure that words are sufficient to describe the beauty of Point Lobos State Reserve.  You may tour the park by car, but until you walk the coastal trails you don't see the true beauty of this park.  I have to thank someone in the park service for designing trails that resemble imagery from a movie set or from a dream.  The photo below was shot right on the point of the Cypress Grove trail.  read more...

We've stayed in the Monterey/Carmel area several times before. We've had vacation rentals and stayed at small hotels on Monterey's hotel row. This time we opted to stayed for three nights at the Carmel Mission Inn. The location is very central to everything. We wanted to explore Carmel Valley a little more this time and the hotel location is perfect for that. read more...

We visit this hotel once annually for a weekend getaway. It has been recently remodeled and is very clean. The staff is always very friendly. This particular stay we had a promotional code that included a cooked to order breakfast AND two welcome cocktails from the bar. Very nice! We always enjoy using the spa in the evening. The water could've been a little warmer and the bath robes they give you were a little warn.  read more...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on our honeymoon, the rooms were very nice and recently updated. The free breakfast was very good. There are shops, restaurants and petrol station right next to it and it is a short drive from Carmel and montery. There was also free wifi in the rooms and computers in the lobby to use. Our favorite bit was the fire pit outside where we chatted to other guests

Great service in Carmel

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Carmel Mission Inn in May, 2011. The property is ideally situated to go to many tourist attractions along the coast. The outside leads you to believe it is an older property. It has been completely updated and is very comfortable. The rooms are beautiful and the property itself has very beautiful landscaping. The flowers all around were breathtaking.
I accidently locked my keys n the car and Bobby in the Maintenance Department worked so hard to help me get my car opened. He showed real dedication and helped keep me calm. He is the type of employee that should be cloned. He had a terrific attitude and great personality.  read more...


Wonderful Hotel In Carmel

We found this hotel through the Sunset Magazine, they did a review of hotels under $149 in CA. We $119 one night and $179 the second night. We visited Carmel at the end of our trip. Had we known how great Carmel and this hotel was, we would have skipped San Francisco. The rooms were comfortable, QUIET, clean, funky decor (the whole hotel), convenient to beaches, shopping, FOOD! We will be going back next year and the follow year will be taking kids and grandkids. read more...
