I have to resist the temptation to rip this place apart piece by piece but probity demands that I be objective and unemotional and limit my comments to the one room and its neighbours Where to start??? Let's go with reception around 17.55 on Monday 17th October.Another subscriber has summed it up to a T and I plagiarise as follows...

The staff is very friendly and the location is great. Parking is limited on weekends, but there is unrestricted parking on adjacent streets. The inn is OLD, and the rooms are clean but somewhat dated. the coffee maker is stained and the alarm clock is 25 years old. There is no AC, but it isnt really necessary because the rooms...

We have stayed here 4 times now and still love it. We have stay in different rooms each time and each has there own charm. So far my favorite is the one is Room 25 or hmm maybe its the upstairs one overlooking the street. Ahem. Both were great. Staff is super friendly and we will likely stay again :)

Spent the night here recently on our way to San Francisco. We arrived late to Carmel & had nothing booked. Nice lady at the desk gave us the choice of two rooms, both lovely. We chose the one nearest the parking for convenience. The room was spacious & v clean. The bathroom was small but adequate. Breakfast was a bit...

I wouldn't say we were greeted at check in, as the cheerless person who rattled off the rules and regs made it feel more like a prison intake session. But that wasn't the worst of our experience. Frankly in my view the place doesnt look like its had a makeover in a long time, with the exception of a bit...

the reason why I gave 2 points is that we slept well. The apartment is small, if you open one case on the floor, the second person has to sit somewhere because there is not enough space to move around. The bathroom is small, the shower even smaller and without light. If you are in there you are either showering...

We were looking for a last minute somewhat affordable place to stay in Carmel (everything is a bit expensive) and found the Carmel Fireplace Inn. Upon check in, we were upgraded to a slightly larger room. The rooms all have fireplaces which are easy to use. The location is great - about a 5 min walk to multiple shops, cafes,...

We stayed in Room 25 (San Antonia?) for 2 nights in late July. The room is quaint, bathroom small but nice until I turned the duvet cover over and it was full (not one little spot) of blood stains. That ruined the stay for me. Of course, the room service changed all the bedding the next am and apologized and...

Room was cozy; bathroom adequate; fireplace was necessary and gave great warmth and romantic atmosphere. Don't count on terrific breakfast. Have to ask for the hard boiled eggs; can toast bagels and have cream cheese; fruit was limiting. Access to Internet was inconsistent and slow when it connected. I would find another place.

This is a very nice hotel in the quaint village of Carmel by the Sea. The room was clean and every one has a fireplace. Very convenient to walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach. Parking available and convenient. Staff was very nice. Breakfast had very few options.
