Lovely place and Very cozy. Good breakfast with coffe, bagels, waffles, homemade cookies. The staff was very kind and helpful all the time providing us with directions and ideas on what activities we could do. Only 1 block away from the main st, restaurants, shops, etc. 2 block from the beach!. I recommend it 100%.

I will start by saying that this place will not be everyone's cup of tea. However if the narrow stairs are minor inconveniences for staying at this quaint and cozy place; go for it. Price, location and breakfast menu is very good. Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.i

I spent an unexpected night here due to a road closure. Staff could not have been nicer and the room was a good value for the rate I paid (booked through bookings.com). Breakfast was quite robust and lovely. Will return on purpose.

We stayed at Green Lantern Inn for one night on our family trip up the coast of California on Hwy 1. It was a GREAT VALUE for a B&B in Carmel! We rented two different rooms...The family suite was perfect because there were actually two separate sleeping spaces (a bedroom/living area, and a separate bedroom loft), and the Getaway room...

Quaint cozy and comfortable. Convenient to Ocean Ave., shops and restaurants. Very close to beach. Free parking but not enough spaces when inn is full. Thin walls and ceilings allow sounds, movement even normal conversation to be heard from next door and from above as well as the onsite construction noise which stared at 8am on weekdays. We were hopping...

Very charming B&B with great breakfast and location, although are room had very narrow steps up like going into a tree house. Close to the beach and away from the stores and restaurants to give it a very quiet spot to stay.
