Large clean rooms Great wifi Good location in town Very friendly staff
I loved the coziness and the atmosphere of The Dolphin Inn.
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.
Friendly staff, good wifi, spacious room, huge comfy bed. Would definitely stay here again.
Parking a bit tricky, but not as bad as it first looks.
We liked that it is in walking distance to town. The room was very clean and staff nice.
The breakfast option that is included is not very good. Very few choices.
Breakfast delivered to your door in an insulated cooler, coffee machine in the room and a welcoming coffee, tea and cookies setup in the lobby. Gas fireplace in the room to take off the evening chill.
We arrived late in the night, but the staff was firendly. The hotel is in a very nice building, and the room was clean, large, comfortable, with a fireplace and a good level of decor. Breakfast is free and it is served in the room. Carmel is not a large town, so the central position of the hotel is very good for every kind of activity.
The choice for breakfast is a bit limited.
Staff and facilities.
Noisy streets at night but then again it is a busy city.
Location probably best point. Parking available, Wifi good.
Breakfast was average, delivered to the room in an Esky.
There could be a bit more to the breakfast.
The hotel is well located, clean, quiet. The room was large for us (2 adults and 2 young children) and the breakfast is served to the room. The swimming pool was in repair but we were allowed to use the one of the hotel just in front, which was nice,especially for our kids. We forgot to book a baby crib but one was available for us.
Our double queen bed room was a bit dark but it didn't disturb us much as we were mostly outside.
The staff was very friendly We lived having breakfast delivered to out room. The fireplace in the room was delightful!
The room, the view, the comfortable bedand the size of the room
The narrow footspace on the stairs going up to the room and the noise from the room above us.. The top drawer of the dresser was broken and would drop each time the second drawer was opened.
It not like being in one of the small rooms on the second floor. Everyone else was on the first floor
Great location in Carmel. Staff extremely helpful and accommodating.
Good location--only a few blocks to the main street. Breakfast (cereal, pastry, fruits, yogurts) delivered each morning.
No workspace--somewhat difficult to use laptop. Parking area cramped--but this is typical for Carmel.
Room was large ( we had 3 people and it worked well ! ) ...and quiet. Split bath and vanity area should be in every hotel or home !! lol ! Location was a change from our norm- which is down by the beach - and we liked it better for walking to shops and restaurants…. Next time, we will make sure we get a fireplace. Staff was pleasant and professional - cookies and coffee in lobby was nice…and the Irish pub next door had great food and friendly local energy.
The morning snacks left at the door in a cooler was the least favorite element of our stay. Not the usual degree of "Carmel-by-the-sea- charm" we usually find in the Inns we stay in. Their lobby seems roomy enough to present food - even if to be taken back to the room .
Location. Fireplace and refrigerator in room. Coffee, water and cookies in office. Staff very friendly.
1st floor room was accessible but allowed for noise from above.
Beautiful well located B&B. Love the area, the place and the decoration of the room.
Great location on our way down the west coast. Good size room and lovely bed. Short walk to Carmel beach, ships and restaurants. Breakfast delivered to your door a nice touch.
the staff was fantastic! we've got a sparkling wine waiting for us in the room, just because i've mentioned we were celebrating our 25th anniversary! we loved it!!!
Good size room and fire was an excellent touch
