Nice hotel nice staff however I must say that Angel is the best. As I enjoyed my breakfast, that she served. I watched her attend another table which had 2 children, she took their order, kept my coffee hot, served them and then she had gifts for the kids. All with Angel smiling! The family was so happy. A joy to witness! Angel is the best!

Hotel's Favourite
We had a king room overlooking the pretty pool. Pool is heated and everyone looked like they were enjoying themselves! Great view as well. We had a special deal allowing us 2 free drinks at the restaurant there; friendly service, great drink selections and beautiful ambiance. Tried one of the small plates for an appetizer and it was delicious! Hotel is a gorgeous, not so long drive to McWay Falls, Nepenthe, Point Lobos, Carmel and Monterey. Also close/walking distance to grocery store, pharmacy and boutique shopping and fun restaurants/bars. Highly recommend!

We were a family of 7 in 3 rooms for 4 nights. Loved this place! Recommend the rooms with patio facing the pool. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Several places (including adjoining restaurant) in walking distance for coffee and meals. Only a few minutes drive to downtown Carmel. Pleasant and reasonable price.

The hotel was not as advertised. We had to carry our luggage up the stairs as there was no elevator?! The heater and window were coveted with something sticky and dust. Our view was of the dirty roof. We immediately requested a cancelation and booked a nicer hotel in Monterey.

Nomad64709438173, it’s regretful to read about your less than satisfactory experience. We understand that having to transport your luggage not as convenient as anticipated was far from optimal. Concerning cleanliness, we want to reassure you that we hold our cleaning standards to the highest levels, and we take feedback like yours seriously to make necessary improvements. We're sorry the view didn't meet your expectations, and we regret that these factors led to early cancellation of your stay.

Be careful! All charges are not fully disclosed. Make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing so you're not surprised when you get billed for things. Rates quoted were not honored. I was told we would get discount for 3 night stay and was not given that.

Clean comfortable & quiet. Very eco-friendly. And pet friendly. Desk clerks were courteous and professional. Will stay there again. Highly recommend going to O’Callaghans pub next door in the Barnyard too! The bartender is a hoot and makes it all so much fun! And the food is fabulous too!

Attended 2-week workshop and was very pleased with our stay. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants is a real convenience. We utilized hotel rooms, patios, outdoor relaxation area with fire pits and corn hole games, meeting rooms, hot tub, pool, restaurant and bar. All were clean and well maintained by friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed here on a drive up the coast last week. I chose it for its excellent and convenient location and was really impressed with the amenities (sitting by the fire pit in the patio was amazing) and beautiful room. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Carmel!

I had a fantastic stay at the Carmel Mission Inn over New Year's. The location was perfect, just a short drive away from Carmel-by-the-Sea's downtown and the beach. The room was clean and comfortable with great amenities, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was great, and the fire-pit was an especially enjoyable feature. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area!
