Close to beach and town

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: Location and it is quiet.
Cons: Hotel staff should have been totally on our on time request, instead, they blundered.
Location: It's Carmel - such a touristy shopping town, not our cup of tea. We only went because of a wedding there. We left right after the event.
All was just fine except we had requested an early check in (2pm instead of 3pm) because we had to have a timely arrival at a wedding. When we arrived, the room was not ready in spite of their promise it would be. Made us run 30 minutes late, which of course adds stress. Otherwise, room was just fine. Hotel is quiet and clean, but NOT dog friendly if that matters to you.

Perfect Carmel stay

Posted Mar 18, 2014
We always love to stay at the Normandy Inn. It is quaint and charming with a European ambiance. Actually, everything is perfect! Beautiful flowers everywhere, adequate parking, comfy beds, central location, and a very good continental breakfast all combine to make your stay memorable! You will love it.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Mar 10, 2014
The staff was very nice and friendly. The room was quite and the inn is so close to the beach it was awesome. Our room did have a little musty smell to it which I told the staff about and they were going to check it out. Overall a very good room and nice friendly staff. We will be going back in the future for sure.

Nice place to stay in the center of Carmel

Posted Feb 18, 2014
Pros: The best things about the Inn were: 1) it's location 2) it's flower boxes and character 3) comfort and cleanness of rooms
Cons: to be honest the continental breakfast was very mediocre. The breads weren't that fresh, limited breakfast choices,cups and plates were paper...
My husband and I spent one night at Carmel. We drove there from San FRancisco on a friday night and left the next afternoon. Normandy Inn was a great place to stay in the center of the town. The Inn has a lot of character. The room was small but clean and had nice and simple decor. It's location is great: Normandy Inn is within walking distance to all the shops and restaurant and also about 5 minute walk to the beach. The staff were friendly and they let us check out a bit later which was very convenient.

Good location and with cool antique atmosphere

Posted Feb 12, 2014
Pros: The location is outstanding!
Cons: Air conditioning in rooms, just for those terribly warm days...
Location: Hotel is close to main shopping street and best restaurants in the city.
Went with my family for one night. Great experience. Rooms very clean, shower is great and the vibe is totally connected to what makes Carmel a great place to visit.

A cute hotel with an excellent location.

Posted Jan 24, 2014
Pros: More unique than all the chain hotels.
Cons: Rooms are a bit small but have everything you could want.
Location: Charming town with lovely buildings and lots of flowers everywhere. The main street leads right down to the beach.
Friendly staff gave us suggestions for dinner. Free sherry and cookies available late afternoon to evening. Just a few blocks from beautiful beach. We watched the sun set into the ocean, along with a crowd of people. Lots of nice but pricey shops and restaurants. We found a daily special that was more reasonable.

Perfect for a weekend get away

Posted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: It's clean and queit
Cons: heater system, our room would get way too hot and tried to turn it down only to then be freezing cold.
Location: A.W. shucks must have a bloody mary and some oysters on the half shell.... Of course don't forget moscow mule. Vessivuvios is great food!!
We had such a good time in Carmel and the price of the hotel was just right that we decided to extend out stay. It is clean, quiet and in a perfect location to EVERYTHING. we will stay here again on our next weekend getaway!!!!

Pros: Convienence of being at the bottom of Ocean Av. Walking distance to the village of Carmel.
The breakfast was very nice, and the tables and counter area were very clean. A server came in often to check on what was needed, and to tidy up after everyone. The fireplace was a wonderful touch in the room, it was very cold the days that we were there. The grounds are very lovely and clean.
