What a find! From the moment we arrived (to freshly baked cookies and coffee) we felt very much at home. We stayed in room A - a large room just next to the reception office which was spotless and had the comfiest bed ever!! The bathroom is a little dated but again spotless, and this old style actually added to...

Wonderful stay at the Candlelight Inn, it is walking distance to everything in Carmel. A very reasonable price for this excellent accommodation. The room was very large and well equipped. The breakfast was delivered to the door each morning and a lovely touch having fresh coffee and cookies available at reception each day was great. Sitting out around the fire...

Spent one night here while traveling through California; this charming hostelry is perfectly situated for strolling the shops, restaurants, and tasting rooms in Carmel, and it provides ample free parking which is a must in this busy town. Rooms were nicely appointed and the bed provided an excellent night's rest. Would stay here again, they even deliver a continental breakfast...

It doesn't get any closer to all the things you want to do in Carmel. 2 blocks to Ocean Ave. for shopping, restaurants and art galleries in every direction. If you're up to a short hike, 7 blocks to the ocean with magnificent views. Scenic Drive along the ocean is worth parking and doing the walk to view homes of...

Many pros for the Candle Light Inn- cookies on arrival, super friendly staff, clean rooms, quiet street (only noise we heard was from the seagulls), and an awesome fireplace area to hang out at. I thought the breakfast was just right- delivered to the room in a cooler every morning. Kashi cereal, yogurt, and fruit- nothing crazy but just right...

Well when I booked this...

Love, Love, Love the Candle Light inn!! The room was large, updated, and very clean. It felt more like staying at a B&B, breakfast brought to our door every morning with a newspaper. There was always good coffee and freshly baked cookies in the lobby all day and into the evening. The staff was wonderful and anticipated our every need....
