“The view is majestic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

You go to this property for the view. It does not disappoint.
I was celebrating a birthday and we received a bottle of champagne, a pink rose and a box of truffles delivered to our room within minutes of our arrival.
The bed was amazing with the most marvelous down pillows we have ever experienced. There was slippers and robes laid out for us. Starbucks coffee and a coffee maker were avilable in the room with cold bottled water and real creamers in the fridge. They offer a substantial breakfast that can ordered to the room if you wish.
Having your morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the balcony overlooking the view and listening to the ocean is a must. Enjoy!!!

Room Tip: All rooms apparently have the view.

I could not get enough of the breathtaking view from my room! It's easily the most romantic, tranquil, and peaceful place on earth! When visiting Carmel, this is the place to stay at, hands down!! I'm definitely going back there. Perhaps make it my annual retreat away from the world. :)

We stayed two nights in mid-September. Our expectations were high, having read so many good reviews. The Inn not only met, but exceeded, these expectations.

Check-in was simple and friendly, the Reception team were always available to give good advice and reservations for restaurants and on sightseeing. They even got us a table at Demetra at short notice. For that, we are especially grateful!

Our room was very well equipped, comfortable, and had a fantastic view of the ocean. The wine and cheese that was offered each afternoon was a new, and welcome, experience for us. Breakfast was simple, but high quality, and again with a view of the ocean. Parking was easy.

In summary, a high quality Inn in an amazing location with great staff.

Second time we have stayed here. The views from our upstairs balcony were outstanding, especially with in-bedroom breakfast. The bed was extremely comfortable, the best on our 3000 mile journey but also true to say this was the most expensive hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean view better than Cove view.

After 3 days in San Francisco of sightseeing and constant running to make various tours,my wife and I were prepared for a nice relaxing weekend at the Tickle Pink Inn in Carmel.What I was not prepared for was the beautiful view from our room.Words and pictures cannot capture the view we had right outside from our private deck.Inside every detail was taken care of.Every afternoon from 4 to 6 there was wine and cheese along with breakfast every day.If you are going to the Monterey/Carmel area DO NOT stay anywhere else.
