Reviewed 11 August 2013

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks at Tally Ho. I have been blessed to travel all over the world as well as all 50 states. The Tally Ho experience is the best total experience ever. Are you looking for ocean views, ideal weather, great restaurants, scenic views, warmest of hospitality, cleanliness, great staff? Tally Ho has it all! Carmel, in our opinion, is the best small town in the United States. You can walk everywhere in town from your hotel. How wonderful is it to leave your fireplace burning all night with the doors left wide open. The doors can be left open because you have a private deck looking out at the Pacific Ocean. Art galleries galore and a wonderful cultural experience is always available. I could go on and on but surely you get the picture! This is my single favorite place to stay on earth.

We initially honeymooned in Carmel, and 30 years later we celebrated our anniversary. This hotel was simply amazing. Oversized rooms with a private patio that overlooks the ocean. The staff graciously brought us complementarychampagne to celebrate this occasion. The rooms are exceptionally clean and will definitely return. Wonderful full buffet breakfast is also included with a simple walk across the street to the II Fornaio restaurant. Shopping is all walking distance.

We have been visiting Carmel for the past 40 years and have pretty much tried most Hotels and B&B's in the Monterey Peninsula. Tally Ho is one of our favorites. Service is friendly and prompt, very spacious well-equipped guestrooms and talk about Room with a View! We stayed at a second floor room with its own private staircase and oceanview from the private balcony was awesome.

Room Tip: any 2nd floor rooms

My husband and I have been going to Carmel by the Sea for over 50 years. Our favorite cool get a way from Texas heat. We usually rent a house for a month, but couldn't make the time this year. This was our second stay at the Tally Ho Inn and there are 2 rooms there which are huge and have one of the best ocean views and a short walk to the beach. They also have the famous Il Fornaio restaurant which is still one of the best in Carmel right at your door. Very friendly staff makes you feel right at home. If you cant get a room, try their sister property across the street, The Pine Inn. Have stayed in both places and rooms are all great that we have stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for one of 2 rooms that are large and have deck and chairs to enjoy the ocean view.

We hadn't stayed at the TallyHo Inn for many years and were delighted with the changes. We always knew the location couldn't be equaled since it is about half way between shopping and the beach. It is slightly off the main street, but still close enough to walk everywhere!!!! The room we stayed in was large, included a sofa, a table and chairs, a huge TV over the fireplace, and high ceilings. The most fantastic part was the triple door which opened completely to a veranda with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The bathroom was elegantly appointed with a huge shower, spa tub, TV and a heated floor. Wow! For a special weekend, I would highly recommend treating yourself to the TallyHo Inn!

My husband and I stayed at the TALLY HO last April for our eighth anniversary after driving up the magnificent coast through Big Sur and absolutely loved our road trip from Santa Barbara. We especially enjoyed how spacious our room was and that it had a view over Carmel with a private patio. The customer service was so personable, we really enjoyed talking with Ned about the towns many restaurants, he was very informative and helpful with a great sense of humor. All the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and well appointed and a yummy breakfast was included. The location was also great since the inn was right downtown and a short walk to the beautiful white sand beach.
We are so glad that we took the recommendation from our friend.... Can't wait to come back again... Hope to see you all soon!

We splurged a bit more than we wanted to and didn't look back: this was our wedding suite and we had a huge room with lovely decorations, a private patio and a breathtaking view of the Pacific.

The service was stellar - the front desk was super responsive to any needs we had (lugging our bags if needed, among other things).

Totally worth the splurge!!
