We have stayed at the Coachman Inn for over 15 years now. Great location, don't have to worry about parking. Friendly owners and staff. Housekeeping is fantastic. Clean and spottless rooms. They have updated the whole place a few years ago. Very dog friendly!!!
It's our go to place in Carmel.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the doggie rooms. They are located behind the Jacuzzi tower area. We love...

I highly recommend Coachman Inn. It's located just a couple blocks from Ocean Avenue and all the great shops in Carmel by the Sea. Rates are affordable at under $150.00 including a light breakfast. Believe me, if my wife likes this inn you will too.

Thank you for your kind review! We love inns too - it depends on what someone traveling to the area is looking for. If you want a large hotel with 24-hr room service, a huge business center, and hundreds of rooms spread across dozens of floors, we are not for you. But if you want to experience Carmel like a local and enjoy a clean, comfortable, quaint room with modern amenities and a friendly staff, please give us a try : )

Quaint is the perfect word to describe the Coachman's Inn. The rooms are spotless (rugs could be replaced). There are fireplaces in every room along with a large flat screen tv. Towels are snowy white and the king size bed was comfortable. This is not your 500 room monstrous ultra modern hotel. It's an Inn quaint with a great staff. Can't beat the location or the price.

Thank you for your kind review! We are in the process of replacing some of our carpeting (and always do our best to spot treat any problem areas). Thank you for appreciating us for who we are - not a big, brass and glass hotel but a friendly,quaint place to stay right in downtown.

Stayed over for one night on our way to Santa Barbara. Had a lovely stay. Great room that was spacious and clean, loved the fireplace and the running theme throughout the establishment. The cookies offered at 5pm are gorgeous and the breakfast is so cute. We arrived at 8pm after a long day and were checked in by a lovely lady who really went out of her way to give us maps and directions and have us our breakfast basket early (the night before) seeing as we were leaving so early the next day. Would love to stay again and would certain recommend it!!! Best service we received all holiday!

Note to those staying that the reception is only open from 8am until 9pm most days so if you will be arriving late this may cause a problem. We were lucky to arrive at 8pm and the reception was still open.

Thank you for your kind review. Our owners have spent a lot of time shopping for just the right items for all of the rooms so that our theme ties in throughout the property. It's a labor of love - after all, who doesn't love to shop for fabrics and furnishings! We have had a couple of comments lately about our 9 AM closure. During the reservations process, we will inquire to your arrival time. If you do end up being later than 9 PM, we have an easy procedure in place to provide your keys, breakfast information, maps etc....everything you would receive when the desk is open. In the case of an emergency or any confusion, we do have a manager on duty 24 hours a day (we want to make sure you are well taken care of : ) We hope you come back and see us again sometime soon!

Karen,
Manager

We had high hopes for our trip to Carmel. After staying at the Hyatt Highlands in Carmel several years ago, we decided to stay in the town itself. We were disappointed in our room, and actually checked out a day early. While there are many pluses to staying in town, the easy walk to the beach, great shops and dining, we were not prepared for the "inn" experience. We may have had too high an expectation. Unfortunately for us, there is a new building going up next door and the sound of hammers was constant during the day. The walls of the inn are very thin, and as we were on the second floor, we had noise above, below and beside us. Tip for those considering: ask for the third floor, and if possible an end unit. We were shocked at the level of noise and the inconsiderate neighbors who were very loud at all hours. Anyone traveling to Carmel must love dogs, and this inn also allows them. If you have allergies, then you will have issues. We felt that the bedding was subpar, and the carpeting was worn and had some suspicious spots. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly, and there is a wide variety of helpful guides right outside the office. The location is superb. Unfortunately the location could not make up for the noise and disappointment.

Room Tip: Top floor and end unit to avoid the noise from other guests. Currently there is a construction pro...

Thank you for your review and for staying in downtown Camel. Honestly, we can never be the Park Hyatt Highlands Inn - that is a 4-star hotel considered one of the top properties in the United States. In checking their rates during your time frame, there rate would have been more than double the cost of our room and we are two completely different types of properties. Carmel is very dog friendly (about 40% of local hotels have at least one pet friendly room). We do apologize for the noise - one thing about Carmel is the historical nature of the town and when buildings were constructed -- walls do tend to be a bit thinner. In the future, if you do stay with us, simply contact the front desk and we can contact any guests that are being inconsiderate. The noise next door - unfortunately being in a residential town like Carmel there tends to be people remodeling/renovating in various locations all year round. They do have a permit for construction only on weekdays from 8 am - 5 pm when most of our guests are out exploring. This process of construction next door should be done in short order.

Driving up the coast from LA to SF, we needed a place to stay. We called around and found the Coachman's Inn, and we are glad we did. We got a very comfortable room with two queen beds (very comfortable beds). We got to Carmel rather late and our hostesses left our room key taped to the office door (so very quaint!!). The location was perfect, and we enjoyed the stay very much. The continental breakfast was a perfect way to start our day as well. And we just loved Carmel!! Would def recommend this place to anyone.... Enjoy.
