Carmel Mission Inn & Fuse Lounge Cafe
Ranked #10 of 25 Hotels in Carmel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2012

Happily surprised with this hotel. Our $150 rate seemed too good to be true, but so happy we stayed.
Rooms are nice sized, good amenities, all modern comforts. We had a window facing the courtyard, great view.
The grounds are very nice, outdoor dining, firepits, gardens, and pool area.
Across the street is shopping center with several restaurants, boutique stores, all walking distance.
I will definitely stay there again, only a few miles from downtown Carmel.

Room Tip: Top floor balcony facing the ocean

We loved it here. The pool area and gardens were really pretty and the pool was warm and the hot tub was great. We didn't want to leave! Rooms were well designed and the bathroom was luxurious. The only thing we didn't like was the coffee in the room. Most staff were helpful but I felt that some of them could have been more friendly.

The hotel doesn't have the view suggested on its website, but it is convenient for exploring the delightful Monterey peninsula and the Pacific coast. The room was quite cramped, had only one mirror, on the door and no convenient light or socket near the computer desk, but it did have a superior safety rail in the bath and it was quiet. Breakfast was adequate but nothing out of the ordinary. The chief annoyance was that the room, with two queen beds, had only one chair, and in spite of our request for a second, the staff seemed unable to supply one (even though the hotel had plenty everywhere else). Two evenings perched on a luggage rack with a cushion is not my idea of adequate.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Barnyard shopping development are quiet.

We loved The Carmel Mission Inn. It is only a 5 minute drive to downtown Carmel, so if you have a car it's no big deal. We had a beautiful room on the 4th floor with a balcony. Although we requested a king bed we received 2 queens...........don't quite understand why but not a problem. The room was very clean and extremely quiet. We NEVER heard any noise from the other rooms. Probably our only complaint were the colors in the rooms..........if you can get past that, it's a great hotel. George at the front desk went above & beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was good (it would be nice if they changed it up a bit). After 4 days we were tired of the selections. The outside firepit was wonderful. Eat at The Rio Grill.........it was the best meal we had in Carmel, and located just across the street. Basil rest. was just ok.

Room Tip: Dogs are allowed on the first floor.

Thought we we were staying in the center of Carmel, but no, hotel is located on hwy 1. Our disappointment soon turned around when we met Cherise, the most friendly, gracious front desk person ever. The rest of the staff was also friendly and eager to serve. The facilities are good and the price is right.

This hotel is in the perfect location. It's a short drive from downtown Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur, and Point Lobos State Park. There are also great shops (including a Safeway to stock up on food), restaurants, a gas station, and wine tasting shops just steps from the hotel. The room was ok- it needed a fresh coat of paint in some places, and the shower is weird since it doesn't have a door- but all in all it was fine. The continental breakfast was fantastic. We paid for only one breakfast- the day we left, and it was worth every penny: bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes, fruit, oatmeal, etc., and the staff were there to refill your coffee for you. There are a ton of places to sit around the hotel- one is outside with a fire pit, and the hot tub and pool area are really nice. Also, when we checked in the staff was really nice. Besides the fact that the rooms seemed to be decorated with fashion in mind instead of functionality, I have no complaints about this hotel!
