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.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed somewhere where everyone there was on top of their game. Thank you! I’ll be back.

We were generally happy with the room but small inconvenience was that the bathroom exhaust fan did not work.My response to the recommendation question was not meant to be negative its just that we don't make recommendations to people.
