Acceptable motel in Carmel

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Jul 2017
Like most Carmel accommodations, it's considerably overpriced. The room was well appointed and comfortable - but the outer bed coverings seemed like they hadn't' been cleaned in awhile. A light continental breakfast is brought to the room; it's nothing memorable, but not unpleasant.

Two notes of caution: 1/ the parking is tight. If you have a large car or SUV, you have to maneuver skillfully to park in some of their spaces. 2/ the bathtub is unusually high. If you have a little difficulty getting in and out of the tub, this wouldn't be the place for you.

The staff was friendly and efficient. We've returned the place and might do so again, even though it's hard to feel you're getting your money's worth.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to post a review. The customers' insight is the best explanation of benefits and amenities there is! We apologize for any discernable dust you may have observed on the bedding. Our duvet covers and shams are changed between each check out guest, and in between on the request of the in-house guest. We pride ourselves on our breakfast offerings, and would welcome any suggestions that you have on making it better.
We completely agree with your two points 1) the parking is tight. There are spaces that are only suitable for a smaller vehicle, but it's nice for us to be able to offer parking at all, as some Inns in Carmel have limited, or none at all. 2) The tub/shower enclosures are tall. When our most recent remodel was done, the old tubs were replaced with the latest in soaking, air bubble tubs, which allow for a deep, soaking experience. Although there are grab bars on the wall and one door, we completely agree that an additional grab bar would be helpful.
As far as the value for price, there are a number of hotels in Carmel that are considerably more expensive than we are, which are not four diamond AAA properties. We feel the amenities and level of customer service is what sets us apart.

    This is a very quaint inn and we loved the decor and hospitality! The rooms are as pictured.
    We would certainly consider returning. My only complaint is the towels. We asked the cleaning lady for more since we had a 3 year old with us - she assured us she would leave some but didn't. And we didn't realize until after my 3 yr old was bathed which caused me major irritation. They offer continental breakfast which is hard if you are not eating carbs/sugar.
    Other than that, we would consider staying there again and I'll just be more assertive on the towels. It's located at the beginning of town and a 10min walk to beach. We were able to walk to dinner in the evening which was nice.

    Dear Sheryl,
    Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. Our sincere apologies for the towels, our housekeepers are usually right on top of those types of requests. When making your next reservations, you may certainly request those in advance, should you need them.
    We are making some decisions regarding our breakfast, as far as changing it up a bit. Should you wish to make some suggestions of what you would like to see, we'd be happy to hear. We do have the quiche available, which is protein, but certainly understand your feelings regarding the other offerings.
    We appreciate your comments regarding our location and the fact that we have all off street parking.
    We will look forward to your next visit.
    Best wishes, Dawn

    What a gem! We arrived during the evening happy hour to find a lovely spread of cheese, fruit, other nibbles and wine. Our room was beautiful with a lovely sitting room off of a spacious bedroom. The bathroom was small but exceptionally clean. The morning breakfast was such a treat, a good selection of items available. Highly recommend the quiche - it is outstanding! This will definitely be our hotel of choice when we visit Carmel.

    Definitely our new favorite in Carmel! Our room was beyond cozy, high ceilings, fireplace, classy shutters and a super comfortable bed are just a few of the highlights we enjoyed. The staff is beyond helpful, in fact they personally serve a wonderful breakfast to the room.
    The often mentioned 5pm wine and hors doeuvre is nice although we were the only guests attending.
    Can't wait to go back and stay a few days longer...

    The Carriage House Inn in Carmel was one of the most comfortable and well appointed we have ever stayed at. The fireplace in room took the chill out of the room. The complementary breakfast delivered to the room was most welcome. Our traveling companions thoroughly enjoyed the complementary "cocktail party." The "feather bed" was luxurious and the linens were first class. The Inn is located within an easy walk to Carmel's bustling business area. It is a 2 mile round trip hilly walk to a wonderful beach. The staff was most accommodating and seemed happy to be helping us! It was a most pleasant experience!

    Room tip: The corner rooms have wonderful light
