We returned to the Tickle Pink Inn after about 25 years. We remembered it as pretty magical the first time we visited. It has one of the best views of any hotel we have ever stayed at. It's still a great place and we will likely try to come back, but it did miss on a few details this time....

We stayed here late July 2013 for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. We booked ocean view with fireplace and jacuzzi room. Our room # was 31. It has amazing view of the ocean and is huge. This place has no elevator. You can ask for help with luggage or carry them yourself down the stairs. From the...

My husband and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn in August. From the moment we arrived we were blown away. The service was excellent and the rooms (we switched after two nights) were beautiful. The balconies are so big it was unreal. Everything was first class from the service, to the wine reception each day, the breakfast in the...

My husband and I took our first trip every away from our 3 children to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We traveled from Atlanta and flew into San Francisco due to minimal San Jose flight schedules. The drive would have been an easy two hours but it was a holiday weekend and we encountered traffic. Still, we arrived at Tickle Pink...

A wonderful hotel to celebrate a special occasion! The service was first class and our room was spectacular! We enjoyed every moment spent there! The cookies hit the spot! Whales were straight ahead off the cove to see from your balcony during the sunset

The staff at the Tickle Pink Inn try very hard to wow you with little "luxuries," like a bottle of champagne upon check-in, fancy bathroom amenities, nice linens, etc. Clearly, they are trying to make guests feel the experience is worth the steep price. If you've got the money to spend and don't care about the price, it's a nice...

Coming up from Big Sur, we spent one night at the Tradewinds in Carmel (not worth the $) and then had 2 nights at TICKLE PINK. Nice wine and cheese reception, but the view and location up in the Carmel Highlands were spectacular. Nice feeling of being tucked away in a little oasis. Great spot for couples.

We stayed for two nights in one of the larger rooms (number 30) The room was sumptuous, from the layout to furnishings and fittings, including amazing water views from our hilltop position. The service was excellent, and unobtrusive. Complimentary extras include afternoon cookies, buffet breakfast, newspapers and wi fi. In addition Pam and her staff provided champagne and chocolates as...

We booked this as part of our road trip down Highway 1. We loved what we saw on the website and decided to blow the budget for two nights here. To be honest, there's nothing 'wrong' with the hotel, it just wasn't what we were expecting. Firstly, it's about a 4 mile drive past Carmel itself, high up on the...
