We stayed here for one night on our way from SanFran to LA with our two teenage boys. All of us loved the hotel, the location, the rooms and the Italian restaurant attached to the back of the hotel was fantastic too. Some people may think its a little pricey but frankly if your looking for cheap then you're in...

Carmel is small, don't let location be your primary reason to choose a hotel. We did and found that within a 5 block radius, there were plenty of properties. This place is old, the rooms are small. There is enough parking for about 20% of the guests. For the price, this place is subpar.

I would like to respond to this guest. While it is true that a few of our rooms are small, we have plenty of rooms that are roomy and spacious. In fact, we have several rooms that have a large bedroom, double sinks in the bathrooms and Jacuzzi tubs. We also have several rooms that have sitting areas with views...

We live in San Jose and it is a easy 1.5hr drive to Carmel. Look at the Hotels and have driven by the Pine Inn many times but never stayed there. I'm glad we did as it is located right on Ocean Ave. with a fantastic restaurant and view. definitely would stay there again.

The hotel is centrally located, has its old worlds charme, with a fantastic, Agatha Christie style lobby. Staff was very friendly, the breakfast at the next doors restaurant Il Fornio included in the hotelprice was more what we expected. Our room #22 was a little bit small, and needs some updating, especially the old radiator heating. But again - charming...

This hotel was cute, quaint, clean with helpful staff. The staff helped us with restaurant suggestions, organizing connections to airport etc. The rooms are clean, but on the small side. The hotel is in great proximity to the attractions of town.

The hotel is in a great location in Carmel and provides excellent service. The old world European elegance is wonderful, especially as decorated for Christmas. However, it would not be the place for anyone with limited mobility. The narrow stairs and uneven flooring can make moving around - even in you room difficult.

We loved the beautiful European elegance of this hotel's decor (especially the lobby), the central location and the friendly service at reception. The hot breakfast was not disappointing either. However we were unlucky with the two standard rooms assigned for our one night stay, which were on the second floor on the backside of the hotel facing a parking lot...

And we LOVE the Pine Inn. You can't ask for a better location than being right on Ocean Ave in the heart of it all. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. Breakfast included. It's not cheap, but I guess I'm saying it's nice that they don't charge an additional fee for these things. I had read some negatives about noise but did...
