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.
