Not fancy, but comfortable and charming. Built in the 1920s the rooms are not large but well maintained and clean. Perfect location makes all of Carmel walkable. If you want the Ritz this isn't it, but if you want quiet charm, friendly staff, and reasonable rates this is it. Beware, if you can't handle stairs, this is not the place....

My husband & I stayed here for two nights, along our PCH trip. We chose this place based on the reviews of Carmel vs Monterey. What a mistake! Our room was small, outdated, and had a terrible odor. I had to request a mini fridge, because we didn't have one in our room. Which they gladly delivered the next day....

This was our first time to stay here, having been to Carmel 10 -15 times. We chose this inn due to being centrally located between the shopping area and the beach. That was the best part of the hotel. The towels were nice, as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The room was small but adequate. Parking was very...

Located at one end of the main road in town and about 2-3 blocks from the beach, the Normandy was a great find! Although dogs are not allowed in this dog friendly town, it is only because of the very senior resident cat. We opted for a room with a fireplace, which was a nice way to end the evening,...

We enjoyed our stay at the Normandy Inn so much that the back half of our trip we decided to return! The Inn is located just a few short walking blocks from the beach on Ocean Avenue in Carmel. The Inn is so quaint and beautiful and the innkeepers do not use email! They still have a ledger for keeping...

No better option in Carmel, hotel is well located and totaly connected to Carmel's style, with europpean style rooms and fantastic staff. Note this is a family hotel and not one of those chain type hotels with no character. Rooms are old but keep in great condition and the only downside is not having air conditioner (which for me was...

We got a free upgrade to the suit without even asking, The room was spacious, and comfortable, with separate living room and kitchen. Complimentary breakfast, and cookies and drinks throughout the day. They also have outdoor pool, which we didn't get to use. Just 3-4 blocks from the beach.

We arrived on a Saturday evening - the trip into Carmel by the Sea was very congested. A traffic jam on Highway One and onto Ocean Avenue (we were told this is the norm around dinner time). There are no "actual" numerical addresses ...the location of the Inn is on Ocean Avenue near Monte Verde (on the left hand side...
