We would stay here again. The cabin was clean and the bed and pillows comfortable. The furniture was dated and the entire property is old, but we were please by the size and the general condition of the room. Heater worked great. Refrigerator was cold when we got there. Very friendly young man at the office to check us in.

The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The grounds and room are also very good looking and clean. The bed left a little to be desired, but overall it's a good place to stay.

They forget to mention they do not have heaters and you are given a 12.99 space heater from Traget. Floors were dirty, shower a disgrace with a loose faucet. Mold on the ceiling and the headboard for the bed was propped up by an electrical cord coming out of a socket. Can't make this stuff up!!!!!

Wonderful little blast-from-the-past location right up the hill from downtown Carmel. Private and secluded, yet not really that far off the beaten track. The kind of place I will remember when I'm looking for a place to hide out -- maybe for a week or more -- and get something creative done.

4/10 Poor


Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location is good. There’s limited hot water. I waited for 40 mins but still didn’t have hot water for a shower. The pet fee is not very reasonable, $30 per pet per night tax, no upper limit per stay.

Quiet cottages without shared walls. Even though older building, fits into the quaint neighborhood well. We had a 2 Bdrm which worked well. Would easily stay here again. Has what you need without high price tag

While the majority of our lodgings are 5-star hotels we found Carmel Resort Inn to fit our needs for the occasion--a last-minute confirmation of plans to visit Carmel for an overnight-only stay with accommodations for our pet (not every inn or hotel in Carmel is dog-friendly). Check-in was easy and the front desk staff was very friendly, including answering our phone calls prior to arrival. The room was immaculately clean (bedroom studio area and the bathroom/shower), fresh sheets and towels, microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, fireplace, heater, ironing board, you name it----you could live here. and the bed was solid and comfortable---we didn't sink to the floor. The inn is old but remarkably well-kept, clean, and safe.
