I have mixed feelings about this place though it came highly recommended from a couple who have stayed there numerous times. The layout of the one room worked well for my husband and me and our 2 kids as it had 2 large beds and 1 and 1/2 bathrooms (brilliant). However the only heating was the gas fireplace. There were...

Stayed here over Columbus Day weekend and would never do so again. Had most expensive room and the checkin clerk was rude and unhelpful. Rooms were blah. Only positive is the location but there are numerous other inns as convenient with better accommodations and more hospitable service.

We had some bad travel karma and were a bit stressed when we arrived, but the charm and comfort of this Inn calmed us right down. The architecture and grounds are a bit of a ramble, but pleasant, with lovely scents in the garden. The bed was comfortable and the inn very quiet. The breakfast room is very pretty and... More

We stayed here for three nights. We had a smaller room with a fireplace on the ground floor. It was quaint and lovely. The room is inviting and pleasant. It was well kept. Not huge or luxurious but the bed was comfortable and the staff were very nice. It is located close to the main areas of Carmel. The breakfast... More

I have stayed here several times. My mother seems to love this place, especially the fireplaces and it is a short walk to Ocean Avenue and the Carmel Plaza. However, for the price, there is much that can be improved. Let's start with the fact that they claim they are a bed and breakfast. The breakfast is continental from Costco.... More

Fireplace Inn was a perfect escape. It is exceptional. The rooms are quiet, the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, Everything was very clean. The room space was perfect for two and quiet. The location is ideal; within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the beach. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Carmel and stayed at the Carmel Fireplace Inn on a Friday night. We stayed in the "Casanova" room upstairs with a distant view of the ocean. The gas fireplace was a nice touch and was easy to put on. The room was quite spacious and everything was clean and up to standard.... More

The gardening around the inn smells absolutely wonderful. We got in late but we were still able to get into our rooms with no problems. The room was super cute with an electric fireplace and a comfy bed. The shower was a little small, even for being on the smaller side myself. Clean, comfy, good breakfast, and only a couple... More

I was tired, I needed a break. Carmel came to mind. Luckily the Fireplace Inn was having a special promotional rate that I grabbed, and I'm so glad I did. The front desk clerk walked me to my room after checking in. As we entered, classical music was playing softly. She took time to show me how the fireplace worked... More

We booked this reservation through Travel Zoo for the great price of $69.00 per night for their smallest room. Of course for Carmel this we thought was an unblievable deal. Please read below my experience with reservations. We didn't actually stay there but please read my WARNING below and I hope this helps my fellow Trip Advisor friends...Dave
