location and ease of getting to restaurants and downtown
The Bed... linen well aranged. Verry nice!!!
The top dresser drawer was broken, it was a pull out desk.!! Pretty cool but broken...
The Dolphin Inn was in a quiet and very convenient location. The car was parked and we walked everywhere for 3 days. The room itself was well furnished and large with a fireplace. We were very pleased with our accommodations and would stay there again.
Nothing negative to report.
Holel was in great location, able to walk Carmel without a car. Lots of great restaurants and shops.
Great location, friendly & helpful staff. Free parking & continental breakfast.
Shower curtain mouldy, tiles needed regrouting, paintwork all dirty etc. Dirty pool.
Carmel is a pricey town with lots of luxuries. If you'd rather spend your $ in town than on your room, The Dolphin Inn is a good choice. Just a few blocks from the main drag in a quiet and pretty neighborhood, you can save $ by staying here and still be in a pleasant motel setting. Upstairs rooms with a fireplace are a plus.
Ceiling in bathroom was in need of scrubbing, bed was slightly lumpy but passable.
The very nice lady at the entrance. However the other person in charge (a man) was very impersonal
Very noisy (no sound insulation) and the room didn't correspond to what was hoped from the pictures in the hotel website. Low level for the cost.
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
