We have been staying at the Ocean View Lodge for many years with our dog. We really enjoy the quaintness of the Lodge. Very spacious living area and very comfortable and quiet. The picnic basket breakfasts are very nice and provide a nice variety. We love the location. It is a very close walk into town to many wonderful restaurants and wine tasting locations. Thank you so much!
Super friendly staff . Delicious breakfast served in a picnic basket each morning. Spectacular views from our spacious premium ocean view king room. Put this place on your list - especially for a special occasion!
My wife and I have stayed here the past 2 years at the same delightful room with ocean view and balcony for sunset viewing. The staff are friendly and helpful. Housekeepers are superb. Each morning, you receive, at your doorstep, a picnic basket full of breakfast goodies, the contents of which differ daily (e.g., croissants, cereal, milk, juices, fruit, yogurt and more). Our room has a fireplace and is spacious. The vibe here is relaxing. Fill up your water bottles from the water dispenser in the spa area. We will return to Horizon Inn & Ocean View Lodge again!
Loved our comfortable room with 2 queens and a dinette area...with access to a fireplace pit, and fresh water for our water bottles. A great breakfast basket was delivered each morning. Perfect for walking all around Carmel. Friendly, helpful staff....couldn't ask for a better experience!
My mom and I came here for our first time last year for her birthday, and we loved it so much that we decided to continue coming here for our annual trip together. We visited again this weekend, and I chose to book the extra birthday package they offered as a surprise. They absolutely delivered! There were balloons, streamers, confetti, two cupcakes, candles, and a bottle of champagne for us to enjoy for her birthday celebration. The hotel is very clean, and the outdoor patio area is cozy with its outdoor fireplace and fire pit. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. Easy check-in and check-out process, as well.
Can’t say enough about it. Parking was easy, convenient and secure. Office and staff friendly and helpful. The room was exactly as described when booking. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. It was clear the cleaning staff is very focused on details. The shower and jacuzzi tub had amazing water pressure with fully stocked shampoo, conditioner and body soap. Great view. Central area with fire pit and hot tub well kept and inviting. Great to have a filtered water filling station. The continental breakfast delivered to your room each morning in a picnic basket also a nice touch. It was a nice 8 minute walk to ocean street with several restaurants on the way.
We had the best stay at Horizon Inn. We stayed in room 206 which had a full kitchen, living room and bedroom. It was very clean. The breakfast basket was so nice and yummy. We enjoyed the fire pit each night along with the very hot hot tub. The room was quiet for being close to the road. The bed was so comfortable. We will definitely come back to Carmel and stay here! The staff was very kind and helpful! We also loved having the ice machine close to our room which is across the street (from the main resort) since the cottages are not next to the office. It was overall a wonderful place to stay. Also, we loved having the on-site water machine with filtered water!
We stayed while in town for our anniversary. The location is great for walking to everything in Carmel, and for getting on the road to visit Monterey, etc. We enjoyed getting breakfast delivered in the cute basket, and loved the variety from day to day. We didn't love that we kept getting things we wouldn't eat. It would be great to give guests a chance to either ask for certain items or day not to bring certain foods. This would help reduce costs and food waste. We worked from the hotel one day, and wifi was great. I took a few calls from the balcony and he stayed inside. It worked well, and allowed us to stay in town a bit longer.
This hotel constantly sent emails to us for weeks and months prior to our visit, sometimes as many as four a day. We were warned of the dire penalties for smoking anywhere on the property (we are not smokers). We were warned of the penalties of stealing their breakfast baskets (we are not thieves). We should have penalised them for providing us with a totally dead shower. Very musty smell round the place.
Stayed her for two nights for a wedding. Super quaint, beautiful grounds, continental breakfast, in-room coffee. Small boutique hotel that is close to town. Great restaurants and shopping right down the street. On site parking. Only criticism is the wifi was not great. Also, there was a musty smell in the room but it wasn't overwhelming and you got used to it. We would definitely stay here again.
