Carmel Green Lantern Inn
Ranked #3 of 25 Carmel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The grounds of the Green Lantern are beautifully tended; they're lovely to walk through and look at the flowers and foliage. The rooms need a bit of care. They are older, kind of small with bathrooms that are also small. The bed was comfortable. Homes in this area are very close together, but the walk to the beautiful beach is short and pretty.

Breakfast was okay; not really much out of the ordinary. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room was in the same building as the office and we could hear noise from that. Ask for a room n...

I've fallen in love! With Carmel! And where better to stay than the beautifully old fashioned, gentile, cosy and welcoming Green Lantern. Both Carmel and the Green Lantern are a blast from the past, in the very nicest way possible. From the warm welcome to the cosy accommodation to the scrumptious breakfast, and not forgetting the lovey surprise of nibbles of cheese, crackers and fruit, these made our sadly brief stay in Carmel one that I will long to repeat again sometime in the future. If you're looking for a stop off on a US west coast road trip as we were, look no further than Carmel and the Green Lantern as an oasis of calm. If it's a longer trip to Carmel that you're planning, close the Green Lantern and relax in the beautiful, comfortable surroundings knowing that at least one person on this earth, me, is green with envy!

We had a lovely stay at the Green Lantern Inn. Very attentive innkeeper, cosy and clean rooms, a full breakfast spread, a collection of DVDs and books to borrow from the reception area ... And location was great.

We've stayed at this bungalow-style B&B for a number of years and always come back. The rooms are always clean, beds comfortable and bathrooms basic. Decor is tasteful antique. Each small bungalow is surrounded by pretty gardens. Good coffee and homemade goodies are provided for breakfast (complimentary),
The Green Lantern is a block off Carmel's main drag (Ocean Avenue) and about three short blocks to the iconic beach.
Inexpensive (we paid $110.00 for a double) with a staff that's helpful and always smiling. Plenty of free parking.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floors of the bungalows/buildings are best for tall people.

We stayed 3 nights there and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect - close to the beach and to Ocean Ave. - a great shopping and eating area. If you like places with charm and personality this place is it. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable, and we made good use of the fridge. The breakfast/gathering room was vintage comfortable, and very welcoming. Breakfast and afternoon snack time were excellent and both Jen and Greta were so friendly and helpful. We loved the uniqueness of the Green Lantern Inn, and would go back again in a heartbeat.

We have stayed in Carmel before but this was our first time at Green Lantern. Very well located within easy walking distance of everywhere one might want to go in Carmel. Charming property with various cabins/lodges dotted among the trees. We stayed in oak, which was again charming, and comfortable in a cottage style. Good fresh breakfast and coffee on tap. Excellent value for Carmel. If you want a modern hotel with all facilities then this may not be for you. If, however, you want somewhere full of character and charm in close proximity to Ocean Avenue and in keeping with Carmel itself, then the Green lantern ticks all the boxes

This inn is really quaint, affordable & in a great location near the beach & great shops & restaurants. Greta, the innkeeper, does a wonderful job providing a great breakfast buffet & happy hour at no extra charge. Greta & Brittany were so friendly & informative during our stay. The dining area & kitchen are very clean & comfortable. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was really comfortable and spacious. Nice electric fireplace in the room too. Parking is good too.
