Carriage House Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Carmel, California, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • One of the more expensive inns in Carmel
  • Old tube TVs in some rooms
  • Room decor may feel stuffy to some guests

Bottom Line

The 13 rooms of the Carriage House Inn are cozy, quaint, and may feel a bit dated, but overall are full of fairytale charm mirroring Carmel's enchanting vibe -- the Victorian-cottage flowered wallpaper would unlikely be acceptable anywhere else. Fireplaces, free snacks that are replenished daily, and quality toiletries can be found in the rooms, along with other free perks guests can access throughout their stays. The "extended" continental breakfast is a nice touch -- guests get to select the foods they want for breakfast, and the meal is delivered to their room in the morning. One of the hotel's strongest assets is that downtown Carmel is just a short walk away, but it offers some great amenities to return to -- especially free wine and hors d'oeuvres every evening, as well as a charming lobby with fresh flowers, free coffee and treats, and a decent free movie and book selection.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a quiet, tree-lined street just a short walking distance from all the shops and restaurants in downtown Carmel

Located on a beautiful tree-lined street in downtown Carmel, the immediate area offers a charming, quaint vibe with plenty of restaurants, bars, and cute shopping boutiques within walking distance. With the free off-street parking, it's the perfect place to park the car and walk to explore the area. While the beach is about a 20-minute walk away, it's still easily accessible, especially if guests opt for taking the car.

  • 1-hour, 24-minute drive to San Jose International Airport
  • 1- to 5-minute walk to various restaurants, boutiques, and bars
  • 13-minute walk to Forest Theater
  • 20-minute walk to Carmel Beach
  • 5-minute drive to Carmel Mission
  • 7-minute drive to Tor House, home of famous poet Robinson Jeffers
  • 8-minute drive to Pebble Beach Golf Course
  • 10-minute drive to Gravity Garden
  • 15-minute drive to Point Lobos
