Nice old hotel

I'm glad I can say that I've stayed there, but I won't be returning. The property is beautiful and in a great location. My room was tiny and did not have AC, which even in November was less than ideal. The soap and shampoo supplied by the hotel was sub-par especially for a high end establishment.

Carmel Getaway

This hotel is located right on Ocean Avenue, so right by all the shopping and restaurants! We really enjoyed our stat there due to the location and the fabulous breakfast at IlFornaio (included on weekdays, you get a $5 off coupon on weekends). The room was on the small side but functional. There was however, the smell of what I assume is very old carpet that bothered us. Thankfully the weather was mild so that we could leave the window open 24/7.

Best location in Carmel

We originally had room 21, which is terrible. Almost no room to walk around the bed, etc. Upgraded to king bed room, and all the rest are quite satisfactory. Has hot full buffet breakfast, very good, not a crummy continental. Right on the main street, in the middle of the strip. Best location in Carmel. Staff very nice.WiFi a bit slow, it that matters to you... Would stay here again.

Nice stay

Great location, generous breakfast and quaint, but small room. A little noisy near the street and a vulnerable feeling with a wide-open bathroom window for ventilation. Very friendly, helpful staff. The bed was not especially comfortable. I would stay again, but with some reservations, so to speak.

Just passing through

Needed a last minute room and this was available. 24-hour front desk helped because we arrived very late. Great restaurant Il Fornaio located inside was open late so were able to get dinner. Beautiful lobby entrance and seating area. One disappointment is no elevator so hauled large luggage up 2 flights. Hotel staff offered to help so no worries if you can't to it. Room 27 was pleasant and had a small view of Ocean. Windows are thin so some street noise but not horrible. No a/c which seems common in this town due to ocean breezes. Clean and comfortable overall and ok value.

Great location

Everything was fine. The only slight annoyance was that the parking lot was full so we had to park in the street. Otherwise, it was a great location with a better than expected breakfast.

Very romantic, lived the fireplace in the lobby, the decor and the fact that this place is 125 yrs old.

Good but really small room

If you're there to see downtown Carmel you couldn't do better. The Pine Inn is right in the middle of everything. They also have their own parking lot which is amazing in this town as it can be almost impossible to find an available parking space. I don't know how big their other rooms are but ours was small. The double bed barely fit in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.
