This place was such a good deal. It was a very cozy room & the bed was so comfortable. It was within walking distance of the beach & all the little shops. There was also plenty of parking. The front desk clerk was so sweet! We have got breakfast every morning with little pastries from a local bakery & they...

Great location with good and friendly staff and service. The room was very clean and well presented. The only slight criticism was the Continental breakfast which was a packaged pastry with coffee and OJ. The pastry was not great. We would stay here again as the location was perfect.

The Carmel Lodge is wonderful place to stay when in Carmel. They are very dog friendly and our 2 Weimaraners had a great time on our weekend getaway. We were in a good location to walk all over Carmel. The staff was great and provided great service.

The breakfast left much to be desired we...

The staff could not be friendlier. Breakfast in the room was really nice as was the coffee, refrigerator & microwave. The beds were comfortably firm. Very fast internet!! Location could not be better - very close to shops and restaurants. About a 10-15 minute walk to the beach.

We loved our room. Thank you for the unexpected upgrade to King. It helped out so much with our 2 month old. We haven't slept that well in weeks. My wife loved the bed and wants yto know where we can get those pillows. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

We loved the location, easy to walk everywhere downtown and to the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are fine, bed was super comfy and the fireplace was great on a chilly night. They could use some updating though. Continental breakfast served in-room was a nice touch. There was some street noise but I think that's unavoidable.

Excellent and quaint lodge....very clean and wonderful location. Would definitely return. Our room was a little small which would have been an issue most likely for a longer stay but the lodge atmosphere, and the proximity to everything was outstanding. Excellent staff who were most obliged to help in any way possible. Our first trip to this area of California...
