We've stayed at this inn many times in the past. We are always welcomed here and are impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms, the included breakfasts delivered in coolers to each room and the proximity to all of the restaurants and shops. Literally everything in downtown Carmel is within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with comfortable...

Carmel is an unique destination and primarily an upmarket second home location. The Candle Light Inn was good as a basic motel but billed as something better. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The unique feature was the fireplace (in the room) but not much use in hot weather! There was also a gas fireplace in the yard and we...

Was happy the moment we drove in! The location was close to all the restaurants and shopping. The young girl in the front office was very friendly and helpful. The room was cute and quiet, and larger than most hotel rooms, beds were comfortable! Because they don't actually serve breakfast, they give you a small choice of items, and have...

My partner and I have stayed here about 5 times. Love that it's centrally located and you can walk from here all around Carmel without your car. We always stay in the suite with the 2 person jacuzzi tub and fireplace. Room also has a couch and great closet space as well as microwave and coffee maker. Only downside is...

I am very happy I chose this hotel. We were 2 couples, first time in Carmel. The location is awesome, walking to restaurants, art galleries shops, main street, 17 mile drive nearby (Pebble's beach is 8 minutes away). The room is very nice, the front desk has a very nice staff. They close the office at 10 pm but there...

Reasonable room. We'd booked an accessible room with walk in shower and non-feather bedding. We were given a room one flight of stairs up with a shower over the bath and feather bedding. They scurried around and found three non-allergic pillows and that was all. We'd booked over a year ago and felt that gave them time to sort our...
