Having had two terrible hotels which we had booked on the internet whilst travelling we decided to walk around Carmel and look at the Hotels that were available. We found the Lobos Lodge right on the main street just up from the ocean and what a find! Beth the lady who welcomed us could not have been better, a lovely...

Have stayed here several times, and have always found the rooms to be clean, and comfortable. it isn't plush, but very comfortable. It is well located off Ocean Ave. and has free parking. I've toured several of the hotels in the few blocks around Carmel by the sea and find this to be one of the best values. A light...

I was completely terrified to stay at this inn based on the photos and how the website was. I'm EXTREMELY high maintenance and was told to stay here because our family had already booked. Upon check in you are asked what you would like for breakfast (croissant with yogurt and juice/coffee accompanied by the local paper). Delivered straight to your...

The description for our room was "Intermediate Level King The intermediate level kings offer spacious delightful rooms with a king bed, relaxing sitting area with fireplace and balcony. Some have filtered ocean views looking to the west. Others overlook Ocean Ave." so I was expecting to have a filtered view of the ocean or overlooking Ocean Ave instead our patio...

We were walking down the street and saw a vacancy sign. (Not thinking at 5:00pm we could find anything in Carmel) Our expectations were was that it was going to be crazy expensive. To our surprise, rates were well within my expectations and room was more than pleasing. Not like staying in a motel room. Almost like home. We had...

We stayed 2 very peaceful nights here in August as part of a 2 week road trip. We were made to feel very welcome when we checked in and were very pleased with our choice of accommodation. We had a family room with 2 queen beds and a sofa bed which suited our family of 4 (kids 11 & 13)...

We were eager to revisit the Lobos Lodge since our first visit was so comfortable. The rooms are well appointed and large. Everything was very clean. The inn is also in a perfect location for beach or strolling. Breakfast is adequate. I do wish they served coffee. But ask for a room above ground level, or you might have people...

This place is halfway up the hill. Great for the beach. Great for the city. The front office is very laid back and both people who were at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. They have coffee and cookies to help yourself to. The room was a nice size, vaulted ceilings and laid out perfect. Good storage. The...
