This place is extremely well designed for a good night's sleep and some pool action on the way from SAN Fran to LA - we used it for one night and found it really good value. Breakfast was especially well priced, and the fact you have a petrol station and a Starbucks over the road, plus the delights of Carmel...

Very charming little Inn. It was very clean and quiet, the staff was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the pool and spa and the breakfast buffet and the happy hour. Our pooch like it too, a goo place to bring him.

Carmel Mission Inn is really well located in the heart of Carmel. Easy 3 minute walk to some great shopping and restaurants in the Barnyard. The hotel itself has a funky layout, like a converted old school motel. But the rooms are nice, and the property itself very well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed here for one night while inlaws were in town. Nice remodeled rooms; nothing over the top, and reasonable pricing. Excellent location right between Carmel Valley and Carmel by the Sea. One of the few places that let us stay for only one night. Friendly, nice staff. Pretty much zero complaints. Will stay here again for sure. Decent pool and...

We had a nice stay at the Carmel Mission Inn. The staff is very friendly, it is easy to access off hwy 1, though too far to walk to Carmel. I use a wheelchair, so we stayed in a wheelchair accessible room with two comfortable queen beds and a roll in shower. The bathroom was huge with plenty of space...

I visited here on a business trip. The hotel is well laid out with a large bar/restaurant and a barman who makes a mean martini! The wifi was a little flaky in places. The room is good, fairly standard. All the facilities worked, but I visited during a cold snap and I was not able to get the temperature in...

At a sales meeting, the shop owner I was meeting with recommended the Carmel Mission Inn to me. It was close, recently remodeled and fairly reasonable she said. All were true. Very comfortable room and nicely decorated with great colors. The little details make a difference. Great work station for the evening! Walked across the street to dinner (Rio Grill?)...

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely stay at the Carmel Mission Inn. The hotel was not in the heart of downtown Carmel but only a few miles away. It is located right next to the Barnyard shopping plaza and we enjoyed two great meals in this area. The room as nicely decorated and had everything we needed to enjoy...

Our room was spacious, and the shower wonderful. While the facility was quiet, we were walking distance from some really nice restaurants. Everything was clean and the staff at the front desk was helpful. Coming back later in the evening, we did have to park a very long ways from our room.

This is my third visit & stay at Carmel Mission Inn. I can't say enough about the wonderful experience I have at this hotel. The location is superb, the staff is professional & friendly and the hotel itself is immaculately clean and parking is never a problem. This year I had the privilege of viewing a beautiful Egret that seemed...
