Loved the rocking chairs on the little porch facing the river

The staff was very friendly. I love the small patio area to look out the little creek.

The Carmel River Inn had a lot of construction equipment and supplies around the hotel, in fact when we drove in I was "put-off" by the exterior and surrounding area, but when I walked into the lobby it was very warm and inviting and the staff very friendly. The room appeared to have had some recent upgrades: new carpeting, paint, and patio door although some of the furniture and fixtures could've used an upgrade too. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had a small balcony with outdoor seating with a view of the river. There is a busy road nearby so you do hear traffic on the balcony. We did not hear it in the room. Beds were comfy and the room was clean. A very good value for the price. I would stay there again.

The staff are super friendly. We stayed in a studio cottage; it was not what we expected at all. The bed was very comfortable, however the cottage we had was drab and outdated; not like the pics on their website. Maybe a room at their inn would be nicer. We expected elegant country charm, it was more like a campground. Great location.

It was clean, and pretty. The staff was friendly and the grounds were clean. The pool was nice, and the room was gorgeous, and comfortable.

We had a beautiful stay at the Carmel River Inn. It's a older hotel, but it had charm. Clean and we'll kept with some modern upgrades. Close to shopping centers for dining with boutique shops. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean. Good location. Great price, Friendly staff. We just needed a one night stay in/near Carmel. Totally fit the bill.

Great place especially if you're traveling with pets. We'll be back!

Quick weekend trip. Cute cottage with kitchenette. Didn't need all the frills for double or triple the price of other places esp since we spent most of the time out & about. Good value
