My husband and I visited the Carmel Mission, which is a place everyone who goes to Carmel should experience. A mission founded in old California in 1770, is still an active parish for locals and tourists alike. Right around the corner is the Mission Ranch, dating back to the 1800's. The original ranch house is still there, along with a...

Comfortable and pleasant hotel. we only stopped here one night, if we were planning to stay much longer I'd probably have preferred to stay actually in Carmel, closer to the beach, which is about a 5 minute Uber ride from the Mission Inn. Hotel pool was lovely and warm (although a lot of flies in it!). Rooms are cosy, just...

Nice clean place to stay. Prices are good for Carmel. Great front desk. Clean rooms. The staff throughout is very friendly and helpful. Also, don't miss the buffet. In the evening you can purchase a drink in the bar, and this allows you to enjoy their buffet. Oh, it's around all kinds of restaurants and has a pool.

I just stayed at the Carmel Mission Inn for the Big Sur Marathon. It was the perfect location and had great accommodations! The staff was helpful, bar was relaxing, room was clean and comfortable and best of all, it was across the street from the Marathon finish line! I would definitely stay at the Carmel Mission Inn when visiting the...

I picked this hotel at random based on other reviews. It is a little way out of Carmel by Sea, but it is only a short drive to get there. There are a couple of good restaurants a short walk across the road. I arrived before official check-in time but the staff looked after me and got me into my...

We loved everything about our stay at Carmel Mission Inn. The service was terrific, the property really nice, clean and quiet, even though the hotel was completely full and the price was right. It's also conveniently located just outside of the downtown, a very short ride to the beach and a quick walk to places for dining. Best of all...

Very nice place, beautiful garden paths, nice swimming pool. Happy hr. is nice with complementary appetizers. Very short walk to restaurants, shopping and also a mile or so from the beach. Dog friendly, staff is very nice and helpful. Room rates are very reasonable. We will stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel in attending the Big Sur marathon. The location for the marathon is fantastic. Right at the finish line. It's also close to coffee shops and restaurants.

We stayed here for one night on the San Francisco to Pismo portion of our road trip. The hotel was very convenient just off Highway 1, with a gas station and the Crossroads Shopping Village opposite. We booked a King Supreme Balcony room and found our Room 430 to be very comfortable with a king size bed, flat screen TV,...
