I booked this Inn after so much research because I was planning on proposing to my then gf now fiancé. I had certain things I wanted done for the perfect evening and day. And they made everything went according to plan. Everything went off without a hitch. It was just PERFECT!!

Bottom line: this was the worst stay I've had at a hotel in years. Our room had to be over 90 °F the night we stayed - granted, the area was in the middle of a heat wave - and we got absolutely NO sleep. When I complained in the morning, I was told, "sorry, you should have asked for...

Thank you for recognizing that we were in the midst of a very unusual heat wave when you were here for your one night stay last month. Thank you for also acknowledging that we do provide an answering service for hotel related problems after regular office hours. I'm sorry if we did not make it clear that we do have...

What a gem of a small botique hotel. The staff is most friendly, service is excellent, location is great and the basket breakfast delivered to our door in the morning was the icing on the cake. If you are in Carmel and looking for accommodations make sure you book here.

We loved our room. It was quiet, spacious, large bathroom and wonderful shower. We highly recommend this Lodge for it's privacy and great location which is walking distance to downtown Carmel. This was our first stay at Horizon and we will stay here the next time we drive to Carmel from Oregon.

We were impressed by the lovely room, the reasonable price, the very helpful staff at the front desk, and the quiet. Because it is four blocks from Ocean Avenue (the main drag), we did not hear any traffic noise at all. Each morning a basket of delicious breakfast goodies appeared at our door. The items in it were different each...

Wow! For an owner that has spent the last two weeks helping out her staff during a very busy time I am grateful and filled with pride for your kind words.

We stayed for one night before driving down the Big Sur. On arrival we got a warm welcome with lots of useful information about Carmel. Our room was very clean and a good size. You get your breakfast in a basket which is put on your door step in the morning. This is a good idea but there wasn't really...

We found the Horizon Inn on our own without a referral from anyone. We scored! Everything from the great front desk woman that checked us in to the wonderful breakfast basket left outside our door at 7:30 a.m. was just right.

We stayed in a cottage room for our anniversary. The suite was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We especially liked the fireplace and jacuzzi. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Considering the amenities and location was a good value. We definitely would stay at The Horizon Inn when we are in Carmel in the future.

My wife and I stopped over at the Horizon Inn for a couple of nights on the drive down CA1. The girl on checkin was very friendly and welcoming, and soon had us in our room. The hotel's location was great, just a couple of blocks away from Ocean Ave. We had a bit of an ocean view from the...

I surprised my wife with a trip to Carmel for her birthday. The staff was great and welcoming, and did a great job setting up the room with the 'birthday package' I bought. Most of the places in Carmel are rather expensive, and I thought this place was the best bang for my buck. I would definitely go back.
