Hello. We only got out of the car and saw the beach in Carmel by the Sea - at Pebble Beach, but I asked my husband how far the Mariposa Inn would have been from the beach and he said "within walking distance". The drive from Pebble Beach to the Inn felt like just a few blocks at most. Hope this helps!
Not at all close to the beach it is just off the freeway which is about 1 mile from the beach. However its a simple drive to the beach areas.
It is not in walking distance, you will have to drive and park. There are no pretty views from hotel. It is in a residential/ business area. Hopefully they have cleaned all the black mold in some of the rooms and bathrooms. The place has potential but needs some work and cleaning.
