“Great hotel at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 13 July 2010

We stopped in Carmel with no hotel reservation and stopped into 5 or 6 different places before deciding on the Pine Inn. It is in a great location, centrally located between shops and restaurants and the beach. We got a great walk-in rate, and were provided with great service from the staff. Free parking and free breakfast.

we"ve been going to Carmel for 25 years & I always said I wanted to stay at the Pine Inn when we could afford it, not knowing we could afford it all along. the prices are very reasonable & we stay there 2 to 3 times a year. Sure some of the bathrooms are a little tight, but we manage. We LOVE the central location & the easy parking. The staff is always pleasant & helpful & when we arrive we feel like we are HOME!!!! I love the decor because it isn't modern & up to date! What's so good about up to date?? The rooms are very clean & the noise level is pretty low considering there is a restaurant attached. The best part is when it is 104 degrees at home & 69 in Carmel & the evenings are cool & misty it's nice to sit in the sitting room by the fire to warm up before you retire for the night!! LOVE the PINE INN!!!!

Recently stayed here for two nights. One probably would have been enough. The lobby was very nice but when we got to the room it was huge disapointment. It's not that it was dirty it was just very tired looking. I guess you could expect this in an old building, but we have stayed in older buildings than this in Europe and it's amazing what some new carpet and beds can do. The free wifi is a little bit of a joke. Could never connect and upon mentioing this to the front desk got a shrug saying I could contact the internet provider. Sorry....not what I want to do on vacation. Location was good. I would think there are better choices in Carmel and by the way, why does everyone that has a shop in Carmel want to ne French?

We walked in to a beautiful lobby, decorated in rich reds, located right in the middle of town on Ocean Ave. The town was very busy due to the U.S. Open ending, but the staff even though short handed was very helpful and accommodating. We checked into our quaint room. By American standards, they are a bit small, but the location makes up for the room size. The hotel is historic so there are no elevators, so be prepared to carry your luggage and do stairs. Again it is all worth it, especially if you get an ocean view room. Breakfast came with our room and was a nice buffet of hot items, like bacon, eggs and potatoes, as well as yogurt, fruit and rolls. The attendants were kind and polite. Overall the atmosphere of the hotel was lovely, the staff accommodating and friendly and the location could not be beat. You will definitely enjoy the Pine Inn and Carmel, it is like stepping foot into a fairy tale.

You are welcomed with a huge fireplace and comfortable lobby furnished with antiques. Rooms are nicely furnished with comfortable bedding and wonderful down pillows. Hallways and staircase are narrow and there is no elevator. This is a historic inn! Staff is friendly and helpful in every way. We were missing vouchers for our package and it was taken care of immediately. The restaurant is wonderful and breakfast included is a full breakfast. Location could not be better-2 blocks from the beach. Price is very reasonable for the various packages.

We were only planning to stay in Carmel for one night at another nearby hotel and then we were going to head out to San Francisco. Well we enjoyed Carmel so much we wanted to stay another night and the hotel we were staying in but they were already booked, but highly recommended the Pine Inn. We called and were greeted by a very welcoming voice on the other end of the phone. Alli made us feel very welcomed and she met our needs when we arrived. We were pleasantly impressed with the decor and the beautiful spacious room we stayed in. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable and the spa robes they provided were luxurious. We never had to phone the front desk for anything and was treated just as nice when we left as when we arrived. This was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay and I will highly recommend it to others. I am global event coordinator and am usually treated very well especially when a contract is going to be signed. I did not disclose this information at all and was treated as if I was a big client. That is customer service at its best for you.
