Perfect location, great service, clean room, good price, and retains a cozy, rustic feel perfect for Carmel. We stayed 4 adults, 1 child, and 1 puppy in the Redwood Room and it was great!!! They even found one of my puppies toys and are mailing it back to me.

What a wonderful courtyard of cottages and gardens meant for a peaceful escape into a story book setting. Our hostess gave us excellent advice on the local scene, where to eat dinner and even made us fresh chocolate chip cookies for us to enjoy while settling in! A quick walk brings you downtown or to the beach with easy access...

We celebrated our engagement in Carmel last weekend and this cute little spot made the weekend all that more special. Each room is super unique and the location is just where you want to be in Carmel. We even had a little fireplace. It was also helpful to be able to find a spot of accommodate our dog :)

Originally booked our family's stay at the Green Lantern Inn through Expedia. I chose this Inn for it's proximity to the beach, shopping and pet friendly advertisement. The pet friendly room we got was 100$ more than I originally booked and the actual pet policies of the Inn were not provided until check in where I had to sign but...

While we've stayed in Carmel a number of different times, this was our first visit to the Green Lantern. Our room (Maple) was perfectly cozy and the bathroom was beautiful! Our favorite things: breakfast! close walk to the beach! and close to downtown! Thank you for a great visit! We will definitely be back!

The location is perfect and the staff is really friendly. Teresita made us feel like at home, she's very welcoming. Great personality. Also enjoyed the fact that you can hear the ocean at night from outside your room. Five stars!!

Our suite had 2 rooms with a large beautiful comfort room in between. This allows plenty of privacy. Breakfast is included. You are able to order your omelette the night before. Beverages, bagels, toast...

We stayed for the ProAm golf tournament last weekend. This hotel is pretty small and old. I felt like I was staying at my grandmothers house. The bed was so-so, the street was a bit noisy, the decor was pretty old. The space was fairly clean. All the windows are single pane and fogged up so much overnight that we...

Location is great - near the ocean and near downtown, can go everywhere on foot. Stuff was pleasant and helpful, parking in front of hotel. Breakfast was huge and very tasty! Tea and coffee you can drink for free whenever you want. Place is cozy and nicely decorated. Suitable for couples, family and friends. We liked it a lot!

“We booked a 2 room suite. The reason I gave a 4 star for sleep quality is because I had the smaller room with what looked like a futon. My other family members had the main room with a queen size bed. Their quality of sleep was excellent. I enjoy the fact this hotel did not require a minimum time of stay with such a short notice”
