Clean hotel, very spacious rooms, nice staff, loved the bathrobes. I wish they had enough counter space in the bathroom. It was somewhat challenging to put our stuff in there. Also wish they had an indoor pool. Carmel was freezing in August and the heater in the room was on all night.
The main issue was the internet. It was free but very unreliable. Most of the time we did not have connection, and they told us it was a common problem at their hotel. Other guests complained about it too. It was especially hard because our phones had no service inside the room.
Aside from that, we recommend this hotel. It is beautiful and clean, and we enjoyed our stay.

Stayed at Carmel Mission Inn as part of Big Sur road trip. The Inn is a motel that offers more like a hotel experience. Friendly and helpful staff.
In terms of the accomodation the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The Inn has a heated pool and in house bistro/restaurant. Although most guests seem to walk over the road to the out of town mall where the Rio Grill is.
I would recommend Carmel Mission Inn for an overnight stopover, nice, clean and comfortable. It's a bit out of Carmel town centre just to manage peoples expectations. 5 minute drive into the town centre. So if you want to walk to the shops, boutiques in town, you'd be better off finding one of the B&Bs in town.

Apart from the initial confusion over our booking, which was sorted out after a while, our room was just fine, spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel was not what we expected - right near a busy road junction - but with a traditional motor-inn feel updated for 21st century. However, our room was quiet and perfectly good for a couple of nights stop. Be sure to try the little shopping village next door (across the car park esp the Hawaiian restaurant), we were really pleasantly surprised by the facilities on our doorstep. Great place to base yourselves for a visit to Carmel and Monterey. Great service in the hotel restaurant with an excellent wine list too. A surprisingly good stopover, if not a little quirky!

Room Tip: Away from lift, main doors and car park, pool view room was good.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Carmel Mission Inn during our California Coast drive. Our room was comfortable and well equipped. We thought the breakfast was very good and the staff polite, welcoming and friendly. It was a perfect base from which to explore the area, Monterey Aquarium and The Carmel Mission were two of our favourites. We would definitely recommend this Inn.

This is a great hotel and the stay was fine. It was quiet, the staff were accommodating, and the location was easy to find. But, we went to the hotel bar for happy hour, and there was a cheesy/bad DJ playing loud out-of-date songs, and we were the youngest people in the lounge by a good 20-25 years. We quickly drank our drink and ate some of the bland appetizers and went back to our room. Carmel is a quiet town, which is relaxing. But, please go out to dinner early, as everything closes after the early-bird specials and there are not many options after that.

This hotel was a little too pricey for what you got..our room was on the small side and we had to close the slider every morning and night to keep the next door smoker's smoke out!
Gross! Even though they say it's a non-smoking room, they put ashtrays on the balconies so if someone lights up next door, you get to smell their smoke too! The breakfast buffet was okay. The in-room coffee was the worst (which is usually the case). I would definitely look around next time before coming back here.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Carmel Mission Inn. I'm truly sorry if the smokers outside offended you. We are a non-smoking hotel but to accommodate those who do smoke we have a few balcony rooms where they can step out to do so. We appreciate your business and do hope you will try us again. please remember to contact the hotel direct for the best rates and service.
