I wouldn't call this hotel "Bed and Breakfast ", not at all! The breakfast was HORRIBLE, and even close what you can see on the picture. Among fruits we had just apples and oranges, and only bagels and cold eggs! The staff was very unfriendly. At around 7:30pm we got a phone call, that the instructions upon our check in...

Stayed in the 3 bedroom Dolores Cottage. The cost was over $300 per night and even though it is listed as a B&B, we were told upon arrival that our rooms did not include breakfast. The location was very convenient but the property is in real need of some repair. It needed a good cleaning. Spiders and bugs were inside...

We chose this inn because of the location and the great reviews, but unfortunately the room was old and dirty. We asked that the blanket on the bed be replaced because of what appeared to be a clump of human or dog hair on it. We also asked that the faucets in the bathroom sink and shower be cleaned because...

We enjoyed our stay at the Carmel Fireplace Inn. We loved having the fire place to keep the place warm, the short walk to tge beach, and close proximity to the restaurant. Wish our stay can be longer!

We stayed 2 nights. Enjoyed the room and a simple breakfast included. The hotel location is at 3 blocks from downtown's Main Street surrounded with excellent restaurants and art galleries. A recommendation for dinner restaurant is Yafa if you like middle east food (hummus, salads, etc), good food and excellent price. For breakfast my suggestion is Katie's place (cash only)....

What a gem! Loved that they are Pet friendly and have a sweet courtyard. Rooms are Nicely kept and maintained. The great part is most rooms have a fireplace! That makes all the difference during those chilly nights. The walk to the beach is not far. So many great places that are all walking distance. It's the type of place...

Excellent rooms (all with an electric fireplace as heater). Excellent breakfast. Excellent location (a few minutes from the town center). Excellent service. There appear to be so many B&B style places in Carmel-by-the-sea but we would most definitely not hesitate to come back.

This is a quaint Carmel cottage inn with pretty gardens and friendly staff. Great location and within walking distance to shops and dining. The continental breakfast is a nice way to start the day, and if preferred, trays are provided for in-room dining.

We visited this lovely bnb on our drive up the coast and found it to be very comfortable, clean and just what we were after. The breakfast was good too. I recommend this if you're looking for something neat and quaint.

I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed a cozy cottage look and feel. Yes the rooms are small but very comfortable would have wanted a large tub, but pricing and location were better than the tub I would not use. It rained for our stay forgot the umbrella, but they had loaners, saved me from a walk in the...
