Great location,friendly,well kept
The member of staff who greeted us on arrival was so lovely and helpful. Perfect location. Lovely comfortable bed and big room.
The location was nicely located for foot access to shops and restaurants. The view from our second story room was lovely. Though I had a problem and needed to check out early both the front desk clerk that checked us in and the hotel manager the next morning were very understanding, accommodating and helpful.
The smell - very musty. Uncomfortable for my sensitive nose. Ended up checking out two days early because of the smell. Other rooms we tried to move to were worse. The parking and navigation of streets to get to and from was extremely difficult.
My hubby and I loved the siE of room and where fireplace was located. We enjoyed our breakfast left at our door for when we woke up.
Well we unfortunately had a problem with our bed. One side was broken down and my husband had to put a pillow behind him so he wouldn't fall out. We shared with front desk employee.
Modern, clean and comfortable. Excellent staff
The hotel provided a very good breakfast delivered right to our door. The heated pool was great, the rooms were spacious, (a great surprise), a nice balcony (room 3). Close to 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur, and all the shops in Carmel!
The hotel parking space was too small for our rental(Chevrolet Tahoe). From the beach to the hotel it's all uphill we needed younger knees.
The receptionist J went above and beyond her duties to make our stay pleasent. She is a very helpful and cheery person.
Nothing to dislike about the place
Comfort: dimensions of the suite, king size bed. Localization: a few steps from the Ocean Av. (Restaurants and shops) and within a walkable distance from the beach.
Breakfast: served in the room, inside climatized bag, doesn't contain any bread or sandwich.
A wonderful position with comfortable accommodation and friendly, helpful staff. A pool if you wanted it.
Good sized room with a big, comfortable bed and large bathroom. Breakfast hand delivered to the door every day included in the price. Great location with an easy walk in to town. Lovely upmarket vibe to the who place.
Had trouble finding staff when I needed someone, but always very helpful when they did arrive. Parking can be limited depending on arrival time.
Good location, convenient parking, nice staff, OK breakfast.
A bit noisy street outside, bathroom could use some refurbishing although well maintained.
The staff was very courteous and tried to be helpful.
The bed was very uncomfortable, a bathroom fan was running constantly from an adjoining room for 2 nights, very annoying. Also, long walk to favorite haunts.
limited parking I believe her name is Jenny(?), she was lovely!
Parking was OK, but could be better
The breakfast delivered to your room was an excellent touch. The pool and facilities were very good And the room very clean.
A little bit out of town, but not a problem.
Loved Carmel loved the Hotel it was very clean would definately come back
Was very dissapointed with the Admin procedure when checking out the Lady although very nice didn't seem competent and we are still not sure until it appears on Bank statements how or who's credit card is going to be debited and most importantly how much

Large clean rooms Great wifi Good location in town Very friendly staff
I loved the coziness and the atmosphere of The Dolphin Inn.
Location Front Desk staff were polite and helpfull
bed was not comfortable peeling wallpaper window cranks were all stripped.They told me maintenance staff would replace and left a pliers in the room.No cranks and pliers were still there.Not a $200 a night room by a longshot
Big, clean room, from the first floor we could see the sea. Good beds.
Décor refresh since our last visit 2 years ago staff very helpful and friendly well appointed, large rooms very clean pool Great location and free parking
No aircon - although they gave us a loan of a fan
Great location within walking distance to downtown Carmel, good value.
We were in a first floor room and the noise level was high on both nights of our stay. The first night because we could hear the people above walking around all night and the second night because a family was letting their children run and scream up and down the exterior walkway at 11 pm. Not necessarily a fault of the hotel, but others should be aware about possible noise from above if they get a first floor room.
