Carmel by the Sea is a lovely town and the Normandy Inn is centrally located between downtown and the ocean. Everything in Carmel is within an easy walking distance. Nice breakfast, free parking, coffee/tea and sherry available in the afternoon before a fire. You couldn't ask for more.

Normandy Inn is a charming, funky kind of property almost in the center of town on Ocean Avenue. The rooms are a little dated in that the shower heads are low and the furnature is mostly made of wood, but everything is clean and comfortable. The hotel goes this way and that, up and down stairs - which is part...

Great location centrally located by a short walk from beach and center of town. Wonderful value for the money. We left our iPhone charger in room and they sent back to us, got it next day. We will certainly stay here again!

We had 2 nights here in mid-December when Carmel was resplendent in Christmas lights and oodles of charm. We loved the town and thoroughly enjoyed the Normandy Inn. It is an older property, as evidenced by the bathroom shower head which was at the 5 foot level. But the property shows signs of updating which is important. The room was...

This was a great place to stay because you can walk everywhere. They even have a parking lot. The rooms need to be updated but they are adequate because of the location. You are only 3 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks from the center of shopping in Carmel, Ca. They serve coffee and breakfast in the morning as...

An incredible little spot in Carmel...with a convenient location right on the main drag. Rooms were clean, staff was attentive, and our only regret was that we only had one night there. Fireplace in the room was an awesome added touch. We will definitely return!

I have been coming here for years. This last trip was a big disappointment. The room was very moldy. I had allergic symptoms including night sweats, sneezing, sleep disturbance and stuffy nose. The walls are paper thin, you can hear your neighbor coughing, snoring and if your neighbors tv is on you may as well turn yours on without sound....

This lovely Inn is in a wonderful location, just three blocks from the beach and one block from all the unique shops and restaurants. It is located on the main road of the Village "Ocean Ave." and it couldn't be in a better spot. I think it is one of the most charming Inns in the area. Uniquely built and...

We spent one night and it was perfect for what we needed. Definietly an older property and rather higglty pigglty but that is part of the charm. We had a second floor room which meant lugging heavy suitcases up the stairs but the sun poured in our windows and it was very quiet. The location is perfect for strolling the...

I gave this hotel 2 stars because of its location and the pretty flowers on site. The front desk staff was robotic. She recited and didn't look at me once, let alone smile. Time to retire! There is a reason that management does not supply photos of the bathrooms - looks like they haven't been updated since the seventies. The...
