What I like about the Carmel River Inn is the location and the quiet surrounding area along with the forest like setting. Also, it's close to Hwy "1" and that's an invitation to Big Sur. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff is friendly and very helpful. And there are some nice restaurants nearby.
The Wi-Fi can be better!
Cabin was set in a flower garden. It was a single unit with a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It had a really nice garden feel with a table and chairs for us to sit outside. It was just lovely, and very relaxing. We would love to go back. We would definitely stay in the cabins again.
They didn't have a regular sitting area, like a couch. They had a nice little table in the kitchen with two chairs. Only one chair in the bed area. We don't watch tv when we go places so it would have been nice to have a love seat instead of the tv stand. But it was such a great place. and the weather was so nice we sat outside.
They have a very friendly and accommodating staff. Everything we went up to the office to ask for they had for us or would get it for us. The place is very peaceful and quiet at night. I liked the location also, wish we had more time to check out the places around that area.
The wifi was pretty weak so it went slow but then you probably don't need to be on your wifi when in Carmel anyways, right?
The little cottages, cleanliness, comfort
One of the entrances to the inn was blocked by big chains. I was told that this is due to neighbours in the adjacent area who would not like the increased traffic. Therefore we had to drive around the block to get on CA1 highway and use that entrance. It is difficult to do this at night time especially when not familiar with the area. The only way we found out was by asking a neighbour walking his dog. The inn should have clear directions about access restrictions.
the gardens are nice and have good places to sit and a fountain even.
The cottages are old, updated but still not real nice, but very functional and have a funky appeal to them. We were very comfortable.
Enjoyed the scenery and the hotel grounds.
The lack of wifi in the property.
It's a very nice hotel especially for a long stay (equipped kitchen). The place is very cozy, but the bedroom is very small.
Rather far from town center. But this is not a problem if you drive a car.
Nice and clean
you can hear the traffic from highway 1
The location was fine.
Hotel room was very old and dirty. Beds unconfortable , lots of dust and bugs in the shower. Was not a good stay. There was a pubic hair in the shower gel nasty!!!
- Spacious room - Little outside space
- Fireplace didn't work (gas fireplace - would not completely turn off, but would not turn on either) - Carpet old and dirty - Walls, furnishings - all old and need an update (not cute-old, but dirty-old) - Too far out of town - you have to drive or uber to dinner, breakfast, beach - everything
The location the cottage everything
Too bad they don't serve the breakfast
Good location (though easy to miss the turn) sweet cottages, will go again!
Very comfortable king size bed. Clean and relatively spacious kitchen with dishes and coffee maker.
Only little drawback is that the bathroom had no space to put toiletries, but it was a good size too.
Staff very pleasant, good location. Loved the cottage.
Too far from citycenter Too difficult to find the right entrance of the Hotel Beds too small
Price and location.
Needs some upgrading.
Lush gardens, pleasant surroundings, easy of check-in, friendly staff.
Very nice cottage with gardens, flowers. Large beds, big bathrooms, fridge, microwave.
Very strange smell in both rooms. Like if the carpet was stinking. There was product against mice under the bed !
Beds were comfy. Patio to landscaped area.
The reviews left are those for the cottages NOT the motel part of the establishment. The motel is old, run down, not updated, and a bit grimy (carpet, bathroom, frig).
Front desk clerk - tried to be accommodating.
We were booked on top floor (2nd) with no elevator so had to lug all luggage up two flights. Then found out Internet didn't work and was no AC. Was offered a fan but room was already hot so wouldn't help. They should DEFINITELY let you know what they don't provide up front, especially air conditioning when staying there in the summer and no security with open windows.
Upon arrival we were allocated a cottage. It was large and comfortable and the spa bath was great. We even had a backyard patio with tables and chairs where we could sit out at night.
It was very difficult to see the oncoming traffic when you pull out into the main road.
Inn is conveniently located near Mission and 5 minutes from downtown Carmel. It is old but well maintained and clean. Cottages are quaint, but comfortable and nicely landscaped. Bathrooms are tiny, but functional. Didn't use the kitchen, but seemed fully stocked with dishes and pans.
First impression was old motel look. I was glad I was in a cottage in the lower area further off from Highway 1.
Close to highway Small pool
Bathroom and especially the sink show lot of wear and tear as well as feel dirty Overpriced considering not in walking distance to Carmel town center and unappealing rooms
The rooms are comfortable and more than suit its purpose if you are visiting for a night or two.
The bathroom was a bit old and the wifi did not work properly and sometimes did not work at all.
The room was clean and the staff was friendly and willing to help.
The exterior was in need of paint and repair. Our balcony had wood rot on the railing and the floor showed weather damage and needed to be replaced. The window was blocked by the TV so the blinds couldn't be completely closed. The blackout curtains were spotted and the drapes were frayed on the sides and needed to be replaced. The entry from the street was not inviting.
