Reviewed 16 June 2009

Stayed in May 2009 for one night, the room was quite big with a nice balcony and good fittings etc. Breakfast and newspaper which was included in the price was delivered to our door which was very nice. It had a very convenient location in the centre of the town on the main street down to the beach. Our short stay was very enjoyable and would reccoment it to anyone.

We stayed here last year in April and gave a better review. Even though we stayed in the same room, it is not as good of a review.

The mattress definitely needs to be updated along with all of the furniture.

We still enjoyed the location close to Carmel beach and the price is affordable.

Also, we left a comment card last year at the hotel expressing disappointment that we could not get breakfast until 8 AM. We like to get out and start down the coast earlier than that. This year, our breakfast was even delivered late. It was a heavy pastry and juice.

Overall, the experience was good, but was less than excellent.

Unfortunately we only had one night here. The room was very nice, with a large sitting area and the bedroom somewhat separate. Very spacious accommodations. The Inn itself is an interesting arrangement of two story units with internal courtyards.

If we get back I would request two things - a unit on the second floor (we could hear the upstairs occupants walking around) and a unit that was not on the street (Ocean Av is busy and on a hill right at a stop sign). That said, these things would only enhance the experience. We really did not have a problem.

We stayed in two connecting rooms. Really spacious! We had balconies which looked onto Ocean Ave. Breakfast was delivered to our room, but they do not bring tea or coffee. You have to make it yourself in the room, so don't use up all your supplies!! I would have liked some milk instead of the powdered coffee creamer.

Lobos Lodge is spacious (our largest room out of three hotels) and clean. We had a very comfortable king sized bed, fireplace, fridge, TV with DVD and VHS, balcony with a 'peek' of the ocean. It is located close to Carmel Beach and everything is within walking distance (restaurants, shops, beach). The staff was pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was more than generous with juice, fresh fruit, and large, fresh (still warm!) blueberry muffins. A coffee maker is in the room. If staying in town, this would be our first choice!

Booked after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Traveling with 2 other couples who also enjoyed the accomodations. Perfect location in Carmel. Parked our car and walked everywhere. Close to shops and restaurants. Comfortable suites with all amenities at an excellent price. Complimentary continental breakfast was also very good and served in your room. No complaints! Highly recommend

This was our first visit to Carmel and we stayed 3 nights in a suite (#37). It was very good...spacious, kinq size bed, very private west facing balcony, and a decent bathroom with separate room for shower/toilet from the sink. It has an outstanding location on the west end of Ocean Avenue, with a short 4 blocks walk to the beach, and pretty much walkable to everywhere else. The Lodge also has ample parking which is a good thing because this little town doesn't offer much parking. For the price, we think the Lodge is a decent value. Carmel was unseasonably very warm during our stay with daytime highs reaching +80ºF, so it was nice that the suite had a large portable fan. The evenings cooled off nicely which made for better sleeps, but if the summer temps are much higher than this then you may want a hotel with air conditioning.
