    Carmel is a wonderful place to visit, we were lucky that the weather was so GOOD. The town has many great shops, restaurants and art galleries. It is a wonderful pace to celebrate a special occasion and there is Pebble Beach and the 17 mile drive!!

    Carmel is a cute, charming seaside town with plenty of shopping and restaurants. Mostly all parking is on-street parallel parking. The Adobe Inn, where we stayed, is located within a block of all the restaurants and shops and even has its own parking garage located below the Inn. At night the town pretty much clears out after 9 or 10, but walking back to the Inn felt safe. The town is also a great base if you are planning on visiting Monterey, 17 Mile Drive, or Big Sur.

    The morning and afternoon is the best time to spend it in Carmel. During night time it’s not lit up as you think it would be. But during the day it’s absolutely amazing. All the shops, cafes, restaurants. The walking. Everything is near by. The beach to the town is like 10 min walk. We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days

    Although a little crowded before Christmas, we loved Carmel. A lot of good restaurants to eat, not cheap, but a long list of great places. Friendly people. Great beach and other beaches near by. You can visit Monterey, close by.

    The little cottage like room was cute and clean, so nice to be able to take our little dog with us, nice to have our own parking space, our door didn’t lock and a staff member fixed it right away, hoping to stay in another little cabin soon, this is our second time, our first cabin had a living room, and spacious. Had breakfast at the tuck box, the tea and scones delicious along with fluffy omelette so Yummy can’t wait to come back

    Carmel Oaks Inn is a very quiet, clean, comfortable hotel. Rooms have everything you need. It is very close to all shopping boutiques end great restaurants. Our room had a balcony with a table and two chairs. When you walk up the stairs to get to the second floor, there is a cozy terrace with tables and chairs where you can sit and enjoy glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is delivered to your door at no extra cost! Staff is very welcoming. It was a very pleasure stay.

    Hotel Playa Carmel is quintessential California quaint. As we stroll through the town and down to the beach it was obvious there was nowhere else we want to stay in Carmel. The staff was excellent always happy and ready to assist. From beautiful breakfast buffets, coffee/tea service early each am (for east coasters!) to excellent cappuccinos upon request-All included in the hotel cost. Although everything in town is walkable the hotel offers a shuttle service at night for when you want to dress up/drink.

    Nice to be in town, but not flooded with main street tourists. Quiet but still close to everything. This hotel has Carmel Valley Roasters coffee in the rooms and lots of beautiful blooming flowers everywhere you look. The parking is also exceptional as there is a drive through loop behind the hotel and lots of spaces so you are not afraid to drive out for day trips for fear of losing the only space you've got. My dogs were very happy here as well. Super nice staff. Thanks!!!

    We love Carmel By the Sea and we absolutely LOVED this Inn. Location was perfect and so close to many shops and restaurants. It is also very close to Big Sur and Monterey. Our room was perfect for us for our Anniversary stay. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The employee that checked us in was very polite and helpful. Parking for our room was right under our room which meant no one downstairs. Another nice feature!

    The staff are so friendly. We arrived a little late but they were so accommodating and gave us loads of tips about where to eat and where to go for the best overall Carmel experience. It has old-fashioned charm and is a five minute walk from the town centre. They even supply little torches with your room key as Carmel has no street lighting. Definitely recommend!

    We stayed only one night, but the staff is so helpful and a quick check in that let us time to enjoy Carmel. The rooms are very clean. Amazing location, don’t expect the best views, but it’s 3 streets from center and lots of places to go. The free parking it’s also amazing you can leave the car there and walk for 10min to the beach and 5 to Ocean ave!

    Quality hotel. Friendly staff. Complimentary afternoon cheese and wine on the house. Popcorn in the microwave and breakfast. Quality linen and lovely room in the heart of carmel by the sea. Took electric bikes from mad dogs and englishmen just one block away, which was well worth the day out cycling the 17 mile drive away the coast into monterey.
