Lovely hotel in downtown Carmel. The bar is fun, breakfast is the best. Rooms are ok, could use some updating, and the front desk could use some training. We still love it, the area, location and all of the Doris Day memorabilia.

Such a gem! As an Architect that practices Classical architecture, this is a one of a kind hotel! A true original, that has not been stripped of it's character and style. Smaller in size, very friendly staff, beautiful spaces and courtyards. The location could not be better. My room on second floor had an ocean view.

We stayed at the Cypress Inn a couple years ago and returned this year for my birthday weekend. We loved it so much, I plan to make this a birthday tradition. The staff were extremely accommodating, the location could not be better and the food was delicious! It's definitely the nicest dog friendly hotel we have ever been to and...

Wonderful location. The Cypress Inn is an immaculate and beautiful hotel with an outstanding staff. A bonus is that it is dog friendly. Terry's lounge is really good and the breakfast is top notch. They treated our dogs like they were their own. We will return.

The old fashioned service and atmosphere is a refreshing change from the modern hotel. The staff is wonderful and the nostalgia very enjoyable. And the dog friendly policy made it feel like a real home.

Our recent visit to Cypress Inn was absolutely delightful! We are now planning our next trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea and will most definitely stay at Cypress Inn! Honestly, the "Popovers" are worth the trip! :-)

If you are looking a bit of mis twentieth century California charm in Carmel you can't beat the Cypress Inn. The sitting areas and bar are literally made me feel like a fedora wearing producer in a bungalow. The rooms are small but well appointed. There was no tub in my room but there was an excellent shower. I had...

The Cypress Inn at Christmas time is just beautiful, layered in garlands and a big fire in the lounge. Guests with their kids ... I mean dogs :) It's a scene. The lounge singer and pianist performed seasonal tunes and we sat in comfy chairs by the fire in the evening. There is a decent wine selection, and some people...
