In the heart of downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, the Carmel Lodge is surrounded by upscale shops, restaurants and galleries, while a dog-friendly beach is half a mile from the property. Parking in Carmel is notoriously scarce, but guests staying on site have free access to the private lot, making it easy to explore the area on foot.

The small property has fewer than 40 guest rooms, each with a queen or king bed. Premium rooms have an in-room coffee maker, mini refrigerator and microwave. Guests can also upgrade to rooms with fireplaces or spread out in a cottage suite, which includes a seating area and one bedroom with two beds, comfortably sleeping four guests. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, and four-legged guests are welcome at the hotel for a fee. Each morning at the inn begins with breakfast in bed, with a complimentary light continental breakfast delivered to guest rooms.

Located on the Monterey Peninsula, the inn is within a 10-minute drive of world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links, while popular attractions like Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row are less than 20 minutes away by car.

Rooms were clean. Location was an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Free parking.

This is a motel that is very run down. I would rate as a 2 star, not 1 star but only because rooms were very clean. Walls are literally paper thin and doors are loud, as are stairs and walk ways. You can hear everything, including your neighbors snoring, which we did. No coffee in rooms, property is in need of serious reno. For those traveling in summer months, please note there is no A/C.

Great location. Pleasant boutique style hotel. Room, although small, was cozy, very clean, comfortable bed. Standard continental breakfast brought to the room was a nice touch. Friendly staff.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay at the Carmel Lodge and we will gladly go back. All basic amenities were provided but don't expect refrigerator or microwave. The TV screen is small, a good reason to catch up on our reading instead. :-). Great location, very close to the beach, many good restaurants, and art galleries.
