Carmel Highlands (where Tickle Pink Inn is located) is a beautiful area, with picturesque views, landscapes, etc. The Inn does a great job of utilizing those views in their rooms, and the fixtures and rooms themselves are very nice. However, the Inn itself is very old (although, again, the rooms are updated nicely) and the walls are paper thin. Please understand that I really mean, 'paper thin'. YOU WILL HEAR EVERYTHING, including the maid service and their cart rolling up and down the sidewalk outside; or every time the unit next to you flushes their toilet; or every time a truck drives by on the road below; or every time your neighbor coughs, laughs or talks in anything more than a whisper!
After one night's stay, we called around immediately and found another hotel (the Intercontinental in Monterey). Though I prefer the town of Carmel, we couldn't dare spend another sleepless night at Tickle Pink.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A Carmel oceanfront hotel dramatically situated above the rocky coastline that stands at the gateway to world-famous Big Sur. Let yourself be pampered with every amenity…from cozy European bedding and private decks with sweeping views to homemade breakfast pastries and an evening wine & cheese reception with soothing classical music. ... more less
