My wife and I just spent three nights at the inn. We stayed in a suite with some of the best ocean views we have seen. The whales were frolicking during our stay. There is no restaurant, but the breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were a plus. We could walk the the restaurants at the Highlands Inn. I could...

The staff at this hotel has thought of everything to make your stay not only comfortable, but relaxed and pampered. The lobby was cozy. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who clearly explained the amenities at the hotel and in our room. Our room had a private balcony with a sitting area. The room was beautifully decorated.

My husband and I stayed here in November sandwiched between a trip to San Francisco and Napa. We spent two nights at the Tickle Pink Inn and wished it could have been longer. The views are absolutely stunning and the overall atmosphere is cozy and serene. The breakfast in the morning was nice, and the wine reception in the evening...

My husband and I visited the Tickle Pink Inn for five nights back in August, 2012. I'm writing in December because I haven't had a chance to write until now. My husband and I leave near the beach in South Florida, where there are many beautiful hotels and beaches, so I feel quite comfortable comparing this hotel. We have pretty...

First time stay last August for four nights prior to traveling to Napa. Tickle Pink exceeded expectations. Great value for the money compared to other alternatives. Ocean views were breathtaking! We enjoyed the wine tastings and complementary breakfasts. Great jumping off spot for Big Sur excursions and plenty of good hiking options close by. We enjoyed discovering Carmel and Pacific...

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The inn is warm and inviting, the room was large with a fireplace and a stunning view of the ocean and crashing waves. The wine reception was good with different cheeses and good wine, the breakfast was delivered to our room at no extra charge, so we...

Have stayed at the Tickle Pink more times than I can remember. A great value for the money. Always awesome. Can only truly be experienced in a suite. Caution: Stay away from the Pacific Edge restaurant next door at the Highlands. Better to take $300.00 and throw it in the ocean. Casanova's downtown Carmel is the best romantic restaurant in...

Stayed here for my anniversary and it was great. We had an ocean view fireplace room. It was gorgeous and the fireplace was great. The room was a little musty because it's a wood fireplace, but it wasn't a big deal to us. The bathroom had candles on hand, and each room has a journal of all previous guests to...
