Tucked away from the main highway and just a mile and a half from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel River State Beach and five miles from the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium is Carmel Mission Inn.

The property is surrounded by lush landscaping. Inside is a hip retreat featuring cheerfully modern, immaculate rooms—some with stellar views onto the hills of Carmel Valley. Wi-Fi is free, and all rooms have a refrigerator.

A substantial hot breakfast buffet at the Fuse Lounge Cafe is included in the nightly rate with items like crepes with Dungeness crab, eggs, sausage and pastries. Dinner is also served here. On Friday and Saturday nights, there’s live music by top local talent.

On the more relaxing side, there’s a heated pool, spacious hot tub and in-room spa services. For those traveling with Fido, a one-time pet fee of $35 ensures the furry friend’s stay in one of the ground floor, pet-friendly rooms. A great walking trail is adjacent to the hotel, and both Carmel Beach and Carmel River Beach allow dogs.

The Carmel Mission, the gorgeous Point Lobos Reserve, and the acclaimed Rancho Canada Golf Club offering two championship golf courses are all just minutes away. Just behind the hotel is a fun restaurant/shopping complex called The Barnyard with half a dozen restaurants, pubs, art galleries and boutiques.
