It is AMAZING! Our suite was very clean, spacious, quiet - there was a fireplace, which we used a lot - it was definitely a plus. The staff is very discreet but also very helpful and friendly if you need anything. It is a bit pricey - but definitely worth the experience. It is located on the main street -...

I'm a local who stayed here last night with my pooch, Bixby, and it was perfectly adorable. Spacious and clean little "cabins". I will definitely tell people about it, I'm bummed I didn't know about it sooner.

We had a fabulous experience in Carmel the two nights we stayed with Forest Lodge. Our room was excellent and the staff was very friendly in meeting our needs. It is a little older but they do a great job with keeping it up.

Only six Cottages. Very charming and peaceful. Not a typical Hotel. Old but clean. Our cottage was an artist studio at one time. A true Carmel experience. You can walk to everything in downtown Carmel.

My family recently stayed at the Forest Lodge in the combination of Dali/Westin rooms and had a wonderful time. The rooms are spotless, the staff is so welcoming and accommodating; especially Eliso who really took such great care of us; and the grounds are so pretty! We would highly recommend !

We were recommended the Garret Loft room at Forest Lodge as a perfect place to stay in Carmel especially when travelling with a child/teenager. This room runs the whole length of the loft and also has a wee annex with a single bed reminiscent of the Harry Potter cupboard but it's the 5 star version! The welcome at the main...

Forest Lodge is in a busy area but it feels very private. The room was very clean. The landscape looked beautiful, I do landscape design in NY so that is something I pay close attention to. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay perfect.

We did not have a reservation anywhere but in walking around downtown we came upon their sister lodge, The Lamp Lighter Inn. Peggy was at the front reception desk and although they did not have any rooms left she was...
