When you go on a vacation, do you look for a pleasant greeting when you arrive, a great ocean view, very comfy bed in front of a fireplace, great shower/bathroom, quiet beyond quiet, fantastic restaurant 50-100 steps from your room that also has an ocean view, a sign along late evening bar that jumps with the crowd, great size glasses...

We ate on the deck one early Wednesday evening. The place is popular and crowded, noisy in the bar area. Deck was pleasant on a beautiful evening. View was OK, sheep laying in a meadow with estuary beyond in the distance, not spectacular. The food was very good and a good drinks selection. First come first served, so come early...

My sister, husband and I booked the Bunkhouse for a short stay after seeing the beautiful pictures online. The building itself is clean and comfortable but dated. The Bunkhouse is a stand alone building with two bedrooms, sitting room and one bath. The outdoor porch looks over a fenced meadow which during the day is the home to about 40...

Staying at Mission Ranch is truly a treat. Close enough to the action in Carmel yet private and charming. The restaurant and bar are fairly small and caters to Carmel residents and tourists alike. Go for a cocktail and enjoy the sunset and beautiful working farm.

Found the rates very reasonable for the unique accommodations. The grounds are well kept and the location is wonderful. Loved the breakfast at the tennis club. Our expectations were for pastries and coffee, but we were pleasantly surprised that there were more choices than that. We will return and try the restaurant!

We have been going to The Mission Ranch since Clint reopened it during the 1980s. I think that we have stayed in every room except The Honeymoon Cottage. The rooms are always clean and comfortable...at any price level. The view from The Meadow View rooms is great. The grounds are beautiful! Watching the sheep is very relaxing. Carmel is a...

We stayed in room 40 last night and enjoyed the view of the ranch (with sheep) along with the backdrop of the ocean. Brunch was delicious, and the staff very pleasant. We will stay here again. We booked the same day and managed to get a room (probably due to the rain scaring off visitors).

We had a great time at the Mission Ranch Inn at the end of January. Spent two nights there prior to driving up to SF. Even though we got the impression that the place leans a bit older, they were very accommodating. In particular we really enjoyed renting the Bunkhouse- it was perfect for a toddler. Perfectly nice but in...

My husband and I always stay at the Mission Ranch in Carmel when we are in the area for a weekend of relaxation. The cottages and rooms are luxurious,very charming, warm and enveloping. The grounds and environment are beautiful with the Pacific Ocean, the open green meadow,beds of flowers,tall trees and the rolling fog. The sunsets are glorious over the...

Food was fair, drinks were weak, very loud, not worth the $. We were not seated, found a table on our own and were told we couldn't sit there and reminded to take our buzzer, felt like we were at IHOP. Met friends, asked for a quite table so we could talk, didn't happen. LOUD!!! View of sheep and ocean,...
