Since 1929, the Cypress Inn has welcomed visitors to the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Co-owned by retired actress Doris Day, the Mediterranean-style boutique inn is possibly the pet-friendliest hotel in one of the nation's premier destinations for furry travelers. Dogs may join their owners for meals, including afternoon tea, and are given blankets, bags and treats. After a visit to the leash-free Carmel Beach, pups can clean up in the hotel's outdoor shower.

Guests enjoy free sherry, cream and fresh fruit in the comfort of plush robes and luxurious linens, provided in each room. Arched windows stream light and ocean views into many of the rooms. Some rooms also feature canopy beds, terraces, fireplaces, jetted tubs and private entrances. A complimentary breakfast buffet is served each morning and the inn offers an evening happy hour with cocktail discounts on weekdays.

Terry’s Restaurant & Lounge serves Moroccan and Mediterranean family-style dishes with ingredients from the surrounding Salinas Valley. The restaurant was the first to join Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, pledging to feature locally and organically sourced seafood in promotion of sustainable fishing practices.
