The warmest welcome you could wish for from Randy. The building itself looks a little tired, but so do many in Carmel, however the room was spotlessly clean. Robes in the closet, really nice toiletries , good coffee in the room and a decanter of sherry. The breakfast basket was really good with a great selection of foods. We were close to the street so Saturday night was a little noisy at one time. I can imagine summer could be loud but I think that would pertain to most places.

I would say you get what you pay for, but in this case, you kind of don't. We were in room 12 in the "main" building, A Queen bed with tub and separate shower. It was on the 2nd floor with another room directly above us (the floors and walls are very thin but it's an old building so that wasn't a surprise). It was $299/night not including taxes. The room was very small, think Europe, but smaller. There were 2 chairs, but not even a small table to eat at. The tub and shower were nice, and the included breakfast was continental-style. It came daily around 8:15 with a light knock at the door. Unfortunately, nowhere to eat breakfast but on the bed. This room had a shared deck but it was rainy on and off so eating outside wasn't an option. It would be a nice touch to add a couple of large tables with umbrellas as an option, maybe even a heat lamp. If you want your room cleaned, you must specify it but putting the door tag out indicating you want service. If you forget to put the tag out, cleaning staff apparently assume you don't want service. To end on a positive note, the front office staff were very pleasant and welcoming and you can't beat the location. It's one block from Main Street and 4 blocks to the ocean. Oh and also, 2 small parking lots which is great because parking in the area is very challenging.

This small hotel is located right in the heart of Carmel. I assume that means that they get more than their fair share of business and don't really have to concern themselves with maintenance and repairs. It's the only explanation I have for the miserable state of the property. Overall, this property is dingy, needs a lot of work, and is in miserable condition. The original windows might be interesting to look at I suppose but you won't get any peace in your room. I could hear a woman coughing all night two rooms away. The walkway to my room needs to be torn up and completely redone. It's horribly patched and soft in certain sections. There are scratches, dents, missing paint, and other issues in the room. The night stands are absurd. The glass tops aren't attached and the glass slides around every time you need to grab an item. One of the glass panes was badly chipped. There are NO USB ports, etc. on the night stands. You have to pull the night stands away from the wall to access the plug to charge your phone, etc. We're not in 2010. It's 2022. Go buy a multiport with USB for every room. (I mean - come on...) I stayed in the "East" property across the street and it looks and feels like an old, converted apartment complex. It is adjacent to a restaurant or some sort and at 1130PM you will hear the clashing, smashing and churning of dishes, restaurant workers, and other noises through the paper thin walls. There's no vibe. No bar. No place to hang out. I would look elsewhere and find a spot that at least has a fire ring and a bar (and there are SEVERAL just down the street). Disappointing and at $250/night - absolutely not worth it.

My wife and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary in Carmel and we stayed at Monte Verde.. That was our 5th time staying at Monte Verde and we have stayed in 3 different rooms all together. I have to say, when it comes to pricing, location, and quality there really isn't a better place to stay in Carmel... Cleaning service is great, and the daily breakfast basket delivered to your door adds a great touch to your experience. Randy at the front desk always makes our stay even better and his knowledge of the city and the area always helps deciding how to spend our evenings very easy! Cannot recommend Monte Verde enough and we will be planning another stay next year!

Positives: This inn is literally steps from the shops and restaurants on Ocean Avenue. Randy at the front desk was a gold mine of info about the area. All of his recommendations were spot on. He really helped to make our experience great. Our room was cute/charming, and the little courtyard was a great place to relax. Downside: Recognizing that this property is over 100 years old, I can't be too hard on it. However, the bathroom had dinged walls that needed attention. Also, our Room #9 was very tiny. The blinds didn't work properly, so the light from the inn next door was bright all night long. Net: I gave it 4 stars because it really was a pleasant stay--made better by the welcoming staff. If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay and enjoy all the restaurants/shops within walking distance in Carmel, Monte Verde is perfectly fine. However, as my husband said, "next time, let's spend a little more and have a better room."

My husband and I stayed at the Monte Verde Inn when we were in Carmel in June, and had a very pleasant stay. The Inn is well located - a short walk from the beautiful beach and near restaurants and stores. Our room was clean, and quiet and had all the things we needed. Breakfast served in a basket in the morning was a very nice touch. The owners are a delightful couple and were very welcoming and helpful. Carmel is an expensive place to stay and from our experience, the Monte Verde provides very good value for your travel dollar. We would certainly recommend the Inn to future travelers.

We loved the Monet Verde! The front desk personnel were fantastic from the time we booked our reservation until we checked out! They put us in the best room! Ask for room 11! Clean and quaint. These are not spacious rooms and they don’t need to be. They are beautifully done! Ours was like being in a lovely treehouse! Close to all things Carmel and adequate parking! We loved it! Thank you!

The staff was very helpful and efficient. We have stayed at the Monte Verde Inn numerous times before but this time it was not a good experience. Our room #10 was clean but small with a mildew aroma, poor inside lighting, an uncovered skylight that let in the morning light and lights outside that stayed on all night lighting up our room. The levelers on the blinds were broken and would not close all the way. The shared patio had such a strong mildew aroma on the furniture, you could not enjoy sitting out there.

Staying at Monte Verde Inn made our honeymoon the trip of a lifetime. As soon as we entered, Randy at the front desk guided us to the best places to go, to eat, to visit, and much more. His recommendations were spot on. The staff was wonderful and the very special touches such as a carafe of sherry and chocolates and breakfast basket in the morning were so appreciated and thoughtful. Carmel, Monterey and the whole region is a magical place and there is no better location to enjoy it all than Monte Verde Inn.

I read so many good reviews so I want to try it. It is charming but bathroom needs big time remodel and why huge sherry drink? I dont know they change new bottle for each customer???? Also,reception man was dressed nice but snob man. Next morning, a new man was nice and friendly. Also I hear nextdoor talking all night. I think coming through louver window. And breakfast, so weak.
