Nice hotel close to walking distance to shops etc.Posted Aug 27, 2014
The room was clean and spacious. We really liked that there was a mini fridge stocked with water upon arrival. They also had a Keurig in the room which made it fast and easy to make coffee in the morning. They bring you a breakfast of choice and put it in a cooler outside your door. The mattress was also very comfortable. Probably the best sleep I had my whole stay in California. The only downfall, no elevator so we had to lug our luggage up two flights of stairs.

DESIRABLE LOCATION, HELPFUL STAFFPosted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Environment in pleasant in general.
Cons: Provide bathroom accessories by pumps to avoid wasting and cut operation expense.

Convenient and ComfortablePosted Jul 21, 2014
We booked four fireplace rooms at the Dolphin for a family get-together. The rooms are nothing fancy but have every comfort. A generous continental breakfast is delivered to your door. The location is ideal for anyone who wants to walk around Carmel-by-the-Sea. If they allowed dogs I'd never stay anywhere else.

Terrible bed!!!Posted Jun 5, 2014
Our first night there was in a king bed room with fireplace. The bed was the most uncomfortable I have ever had in any hotel/motel and I've stayed in well over 2000 rooms. It had a ridge down the middle and sloped away on both sides of the ridge. They gave us another room with a good bed and claimed they were brand new mattresses. I told the lady at the desk something was obviously wrong with the bed, but they just cleaned the room and then rented it to someone else without doing anything to the bed but changing the sheets. The rooms are noisy, first room with some kind of pool or water heating equipment that operates in a basement space under the guest rooms. The second room was noisy from neighbors. Sleeping at the place was not easy. Nice location though...

Perfect spot for the right pricePosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We were very happy with everything, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a/c and heater issues but it was very quiet which I had read on reviews might be a problem. We would definately stay there again.
