“Amazing room, amazing view, amazing service!”
Reviewed 5 April 2010

Tickle Pink Inn is the perfect hotel for a romantic getaway. Everything about our stay was perfect. We were greeted by friendly staff, who would continue to provide excellent guest service throughout our stay. The room was beautiful - incredibly clean and visually stunning. The view was priceless and incredibly enticing. I would book another stay here and spend the whole time in the room! It was the little extras that took the experience from great to outstanding - the wine and cheese hour, the free continental breakfast delivered to our room, the comfy robes to snuggle in... most of all the fireplace and whirlpool tub made the weekend complete!

We just returned from a lovely, relaxing two night stay. It was our first visit to the hotel, even though we have been coming to Carmel and the Monterey Peninisula for years. One word sums it up- VIEW! The large balcony with chaise lounge entices you to stay in your room all day and just stare at the mesmerizing California coastline. Our room was beautifully decorated and spotless. We loved the down comforter, 500 thread-count sheets and the compliemntary bottle of champagne upon arrival. Terry robes and slippers were also a nice touch.
We didn't want to leave and will definintely be back!!!

Loved this hotel. The view from the room is great. The complimentary chilled sparkling wine in our room was very good as well. We will stay there again!

This was our treat for two nights during a 3 week trip through California. It was a recommendation by someone who stayed there about 20 years ago and we weren't disappointed at all! We had a standard ocean view room and the view was beautiful. The weather was ok but no sunsets in the evening. The terrace where breakfast and the wine & cheese offering take place is a comfortable area where you can either meet other guests or keep to yourself. The breakfast was amazing, anything you want and the wine & cheese offering between about 4:30-6pm is a must - at least once! Great wine from the area, grapes, sparkling cider, cheese and crackers and bread. The hotel has a little spa, where you can relax in peace and quiet but it's a small pool (pool is exaggerated). Attention it has sulfur in it, so take of your jewelry before going in. The rooms are beautiful and the service is great. You get the morning paper on the doorstep and you can rent recent or classical movies (up to 2) overnight for free. The staff is really nice and helpful. For younger couples: the average guest is around 50 so it seemed to us and we (in our early 20's) were thought to be no our honeymoon. However we did not have any trouble being younger than most other guests and it was a fabulous stay. We will return for sure!
(Carmel and Monterey are really close, as well as Big Sur area with several State Parks. Point Lobos is a must!)

If you've seen Weston's photos, you've seen the amazing views out the sliders of this hotel. Very relaxing, tea bags (yeah!!) in the hotel room, great breakfast AND wine/cheese, nicely appointed, and so close to lots of other great stuff: Carmel and its shopping, Post Ranch Inn dining, Point Lobos state park hiking.

Good value for what you get, especially if you get Rm. 16--the best in the house. We spent our 20th here, and would recommend it to anyone! Free room service for breakfast, though the dining area is very convenient.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights here. Positives included terrific staff; great location and views; fantastic room; very comfy bed; lots of small touches; proximity to Monterey, Carmel, & Big Sur. A little pricy on a weekend but a good value during the week. Only negatives were noises from road below Inn; footsteps from room above (thin ceilings so ask for highest floor for less noise and best views). I was also a little bothered by the fact the picture on the website airbrushed out the Highland Inn which sits just to left of the Inn - the picture makes it look like it's the only lodging on the hill. That type of marketing is a bit disingenuous in my view, but I guess it's necessary to help sell the place. Once here, I'd say the positives far outweigh the negatives and we'd definitely stay here again if in the area.
