It seemed like a good idea at the time

It's cute from the outside and the common area is pleasant. Unfortunately, the rooms are small, the bathrooms even smaller and the walls are paper thin. Great location, just not worth the price considering the issues mentioned.

Ideal location in Carmel

The Pine Inn was perfect for our short getaway to Carmel. It's on the main strip. It neighbors great shopping and restaurants. The beach is within walking distance. We were upgraded to a traditional, yet elegant suite with two queen beds and a downstairs living area--probably helps to visit during the off season. The buffet breakfast was simple but well done. We will definitely stay here again!

Charming small hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Stayed at this Carmel institution for the AT&T Pro-Am golf weekend (short walk to the AT&T shuttle to Pebble). Location is excellent, right in the heart of Carmel village. Walk to shops, restaurants and beach. However, hotel parking lot is small (first come, first served), with restricted street parking during the day (non-restricted parking at night, or a few blocks away). Hotel occupies a square block with a variety or rooms and prices, from tiny (ours was probably 200sf) to suites. Be prepared to navigate the hotel maze as rooms are scattered throughout the 'complex' (at checkin, don't turn down the offer to take you to your room). Several small shops, a cafe and a fine dining restaurant (Il Fornaio) are on the premises.

The cafe in the hotel will sell a 'beach box', consisting of a panini sandwich, cookie, soda for $9 that can be taken to go.

Great NYE getaway

My extended family came to Carmel for a wedding at Il Fornaio on NYE. We had a fabulous time. The hotel was charming and the staff was great. Will definitely come back.

Charming Hotel

The desk staff is very welcoming. We loved being in the heart of town. Our room was cosy and we enjoyed sitting by the fire in the lobby sitting area. The attached restaurant was superb and the complimentary breakfast was generous

Felt like a million bucks!

Located in the heart of Ocean Avenue 4 blocks from the ocean, the location was perfect! The Pine Inn stands out from other hotels with it's charming white tall building that is anchored with quality boutiques on the first floor. The Inn is nicely decorated with an 1880's elegance charm that made us feel like we paid a million bucks!

excellent getaway by the ocean in carmel

When we got their from the Hearst Castle tour in San Simeon, we were looking for a hotel to stay either Carmel or Monterey. The hotel clerk was very courteous and friendly and provided our room and a breakfast buffet the next morning. We only stayed one night there but I would stay there again on my next visit to Carmel.
