This is a deal for the Carmel area. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. They are pet friendly with a reasonable pet fee and the rooms are clean and updated. What a great find in the area and walking distance to food, ocean and parks. VERY QUIET, TOO

We visited this inn for our annual Carmel Bach Festival trip. We’d never stayed at this spot, but recommend it highly. For me, the standout impression was that the entire staff were upbeat and happy…the sign of a well managed inn. Our room was quiet and nicely appointed, with its own private deck, fireplace, and jacuzzi tub. In lieu of wine and cheese, this inn has a seemingly endless supply of delicious cookies, and the breakfast fare includes the most delicious little quiches I’ve ever tasted…as well as fresh fruit, granola, oatmeal and lovely pastries. The dining area is open all day, so we had access to the microwave to reheat our takeout food for lunch. There’s an outdoor dining area surrounded by flowers, as well as an indoor location with fireplace. The location is near the heart of Carmel, so we were able to walk to the Sunset Center for the Bach festival. It’s also an easy walk to Carmel Beach, and the inn provides beach towels and sand buckets for the kids. Of course, it’s set in a delightful garden. All in all it’s a special place with some very thoughtful touches.

This inn exceeded our expectations-from the time we checked in, with homemade cookies waiting for us in the check in area, to the lush bedding and clean room, to the enjoyable breakfasts and great conversations with the staff. And we can’t forget Mr Big, the resident cat! We would definitely recommend the CCI for anyone wanting to enjoy a cool getaway to the Carmel area!

Outstanding hospitality, especially for families with dogs. The Inn is walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. The Tree Top Suite was perfect. We loved that the Inn is dog friendly in every way, inclusive of the amazing staff. They provided treats, a sheet to cover the bed for dogs, dog strollers, and also have a dedicated “potty” area on premise. Lucero on the team was especially kind and helped to make our stay memorable. Breakfast is good, and the Inn also provides snacks and treats throughout the day. Will definitely come back when visiting Carmel!

we arrived and got the last spot in the Small Parking lot. We had booked a King Deluxe Room, it was unimpressive., dated, dark, stuffy/hot when we arrived... For the price we paid, it was overly priced an not worth it. NO frills, and for a B&B, it was basic We will go back to Carmel but NOt this place to stay.

On our recent visit to Carmel, we had to split our stay between accommodations due to availability. This place was most exceptional in every way, from their courteous et friendly staff, to their spacious et plush comfy rooms to their delicious breakfast. Their added attention to our dog, Henry was sincere et comforting. They went above et beyond in helping us secure parking for our 24’ Sprinter. We look forward to our next stay with them, so I’ll be booking more in advance than previous to make sure.

This was my second stay at Carmel Country Inn. It is lovely to have 2 bathrooms as an option with four adults. I love the resident kitty, Mr Big and they really cater to your furry children. The breakfast frittatas are delicious, fresh fruit and lots of snacks/cookies. Parking was easy.

Everything for our stay at the Carmel Country Inn was effortless - booking was easy, the staff were absolutely wonderful and made us feel so at home and the suite we had for our party of 5 worked well with a 2 bed/1 bath suite which contained a foldout bed for our 2 kids to sleep on in the lounge space and 2 separate bedrooms for the rest of us. Breakfast was plentiful and the bonus of the homemade cookies and peanut butter filled pretzel pieces a lovely touch as well, as were the beach towels and buckets and spades to borrow to take to the beach. Location was a short 5 minute walk into the heart of Carmel and a few minutes from the beach too. The front desk team have lots of maps and brochures to point you in the right direction and for things to do - we did one of the walks suggested within one of the brochures which took us along the beach, past some lovely houses and into a nature reserve. One word of caution however...you'll need a stepladder to get into the beds as they are so high!

We couldn’t have been more impressed with this lovely hotel which is in a perfect location in the beautiful Carmel. We are a family of four and had a suite which was huge and so spacious for us. Everything has been thought of - extra blankets and pillows in the room, gas fire for chilly evenings, games for the children to borrow, two spotless bathrooms. Downstairs you have some lovely seating areas and there are flowers everywhere. The breakfast is delicious and the staff are super friendly. They bake fresh cookies daily and lovely snacks are available all day as well as fresh coffee on tap! Beach towels and buckets and spades are also ready for you to borrow whenever you need them. And our trip was made extra special when we woke on Easter Day to find the Easter bunny had been and left a basket of chocolate goodies for our children outside our door! It’s been a fabulous four days and we would love to come back here again. Highly recommend.

This charming B&B was the perfect experience. Clean, well-situated, dog-friendly with EXCELLENT customer service. The staff goes above and beyond, and we were made to feel so welcome. They provided a complimentary birthday cake for our son, and everyone was so eager to help with any request. We will be back. Thank you to all of the staff!
