With my children, a weekend trip for a family event. I was specific when I called and spoke with the desk clerk, I'm traveling with young children. Is this a family oriented place to stay??? Huge mistake, they have a bar with a live band which I didn't know. I was extremely disappointed not to mention ticked off, when the band started at 8pm till mid night. We could not fall asleep, the band was very loud and the people in the parking lot were worse. I called the front desk, they said they would ask the band to turn down the volume. No use, we visit Monterey often, we have passes to the aquarium. Never again nor would I recommend it to anyone who is there to sleep before 1 am!

First let me apologize for the fact that you are not able to get the quiet night sleep you expected. Our hotel is extremely popular on weekends and we have featured live music with dancing on Friday and Saturday nights for the past 10 years. There are quieter areas in the hotel so I’m not sure what your exact room requirements were or if my staff had the ability to place you in one of our quieter area. From a family-friendly perspective we offer a fabulous heated pool with hot tub, a full-service restaurant, nearby walking trails, limited pet friendly rooms, many fine stores and restaurants within walking distance and a great outdoor patio area. We provide lodging accommodations for more families traveling with children than any other hotel in Carmel. From that perspective we consider ourselves the most family-friendly hotel in Carmel. We truly appreciate your business and hope to see you again. Please remember to contact the hotel direct for the best rates and services.

they didn't give us the room we have reserved. We reserved the most expensive room (from Expedia - hoping it would be true to the photos), and they gave us the cheapest one, and would not change that, even though the hotel was half-empty. The guy at the front desk was stuck-up, and claiming that they have 4 room categories, not just two (!) and we'd have to pay even more than we did to upgrade. Most of the rooms don't have balconies, the windows barely open, and a lot of the rooms face the parking/concrete, motel-style, with the door on the same side as the window. The hotel has several buildings, and the interior corridors are a bit run down and depressing. The pool is nice.

First of all let me start by saying we stand by the integrity of our staff, our hotel and the many fine reviews we have received throughout the years. We always try to convey to our guests that the best rooms, prices and packages are available by calling the hotel direct or visiting our hotel’s own website only. These exclusive rates, special offers or premium room types are not available through other online intermediaries. If you want great service it is best to deal directly with our kind and caring staff. Booking the most expensive room type through an online intermediary will generally not get you a premium room type in a hotel. We’ve all heard that old adage “hotels will sell unused inventory at a deep discount”. Typically you will find that these unsold rooms are not considered premium inventory. We appreciate your business and hope to have the opportunity to serve you again. Please contact us directly for the best rates, rooms and service.

Stayed here for two nights in April . Good location just off the highway and for visiting the area , staff were friendly and helpful, and they served a great breakfast. Rooms were spacious and comfortable . Glad we chose to stay at the Mission Inn.

Room Tip: All rooms seems to be similar quality .

This hotel is very well-maintained. The property is beautifully decorated with lots of pots of plants and flowers, very pleasant environment. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable, also well-kept. The only negative is the room's air condition switch - it only has "auto" or "on". This results in high blasts of air when I would prefer "Low" for air flow, especially for sleeping.
The hotel breakfast is good (though it cost $12 for the buffet breakfast). There's a good variety of foods and fruits.
All in all, we enjoyed the stay.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped with friendly staff. The Hotel is situated opposite a shopping centre and a 5 minute drive from the pretty town of Carmel. We stayed in room 249 which overlooked the rear of the Hotel which meant it was quiet.
The Breakfast buffet was fresh but variety was quite limited.

Location: Meh. It's next to the highway (1), behind a gas station, sandwiched between several strip-malls. A mile and a half to the (amazing) beach, and about three miles from Carmel-by-the-Sea shopping district.

The hotel bar and restaurant: competent but nothing special. Good food is plentiful in the area, though, and Yelp! was a reliable source of options while there.

That said, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Our room overlooked the beautifully landscaped, if dated/quaint pool. Landscaping on the grounds is nice in general. Lots of flowers. There's a great outdoor patio outside reception, complete with awesome landscaping and a fire-pit. Once you're on the hotel grounds, it is very comfy.

Utilitarian, clean, comfortable, and with a few nice touches.

We have stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn several times with family and friends. Very dog friendly, great food, rooms are spacious and clean with up to date décor. The location of this hotel is perfect as it sits in the middle of Carmel By the Sea and Carmel Valley so the weather is usually sunny and warm. The pool is lovely and is maintained well.
I would Highly recommend this location and spot as it is a gem!
