We stayed here for one night as part of our California road trip. Good location, about 10 minutes walk to the beach, albeit down a steep hill. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, especially the bed. The bathroom was small but had a decent shower. The breakfast basket to our room was reasonable, nothing spectacular but when you...

A really lovely place to stay with large , clean and comfortable rooms - a small communal balcony in a picturesque setting. Breakfast is a continental delivered to your room in a sweet hamper. The location is great for exploring this unique little town.

Very good location. Only two blocks from the main street with all the shops and places to eat. Check in was easy. The room was a basic motel room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. One thing I did not like is the continental breakfast was served in a basket at your door at 8:15 am. We are... More

The place is old. Our bathroom was the most modern part of the room and was quite nice, except for limited places to store items. The bed was comfortable and the TV was fine. The appearance of the room was dull. You get a breakfast basked by your door in the morning with juice, milk, cereal, fruit and a grain... More

Let me begin by saying that this location is terrific. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. And if you don't mind lugging your luggage up the tattered steps to a worn out second floor room with a broken lock on the door, a burned out light in the bathroom, a telephone that did not work, cracks and holes...

We arrived late but an envelope with a key/instructions was awaiting us - problem was, it took us quite a while to find the hotel as Carmel By The Sea doesn't label its streets very clearly and it was very dark. Fortunately we found a parking spot and the room was okay but chilly (typical coast weather for late June).... More

It was late Friday Night. We had traveled a long way and were so tired. It was Memorial Day weekend. After checking several hotels online we called Clarion. The young lady was very friendly offered us a great rate compared to most hotels. She offered to stay later since they were closing. We were lost and called again she guided... More
