    First post-COVID hotel stay

    The hotel was cute and definitely in a good location. I do find myself struggling with paying more, or the same for less though, at this hotel, other hotels or in restaurants. There was no room cleaning service so since we had been at the beach, the jacuzzi tub was only enjoyed on the first night. Breakfast was limited to just a few items and simple things like bananas were out of stock on our last day. Since there was no room cleaning service we had to bring our breakfast dirty dishes back to the lobby on our own or leave them in the room overnight. I kind of wanted to get away from housekeeping so that part was not so enjoyable. Also, the hotel claimed they did not clean the room while we were there for the safety of the guests and staff, but when someone cleaned the room next door his mask was pulled down around his chin and the front door was wide open; just did not feel aligned with the message. Not really sure if I would stay there again. On the plus side, the front desk staff was VERY nice.

    Amazing staff and perfect for dogs

    We had nothing short of a spectacular stay at Carmel Country Inn and will absolutely return. The entire staff was welcoming and eager to provide the best stay possible while ensuring safety during a pandemic.

    The staff at Carmel Country Inn did a superb job of accommodating our dog, Lola. There’s a grassy for your dog to go to the bathroom and towels and shampoo to bathe your pup after playing at Carmel Beach (which is entirely off-leash). Every day the staff would give Lola a treat and recommend restaurants and activities that allowed pets. If you have a dog, this is the place to stay.

    My partner and I stayed in the deluxe one-bedroom king and had everything needed. There’s a nice patio to soak up some sun and enjoy your daily breakfast delivered to your front door(loaded with several options). There’s a massive jet bathtub, a gas fireplace, and a very comfortable bed, making it one of the most relaxing stays we’ve ever had. The inn is situated a few blocks from downtown and the beach, making it both convenient to walk to everything but secluded enough to feel away from the noise and large crowds. Added bonus, if you have a Tesla, there’s a charging port in the parking lot.

    If you’re bringing along a dog, we really enjoyed:
    - Daily walks on Carmel Beach (there are so many adorable, well-behaved dogs)
    - Wine tasting at Silvestri
    - Eating in at Little Napoli (they have the cutest secluded patio)
    - Treats and toys at Diggity Dog (where you can also get custom photos from a professional photographer)

    Four paws up

    Carmel Country Inn is a wonderful place where dogs and their owners can relax and enjoy this beautiful seaside town. All rooms are dog friendly and they have potty area for dogs and hose to cleanup after visiting the beach. Dogs are allowed in dinning area with other guests, and they have treats ready for dogs too. Staffs are very nice and friendly, they gave us good information on dog friendly restaurants and services in town.

    Fantastic for dogs & owners

    We love how dog friendly Carmel is as a city but nowhere are they more welcoming than the Carmel Country Inn. They take photos of your dog as part of your welcome and have all the needed amenities. We wouldn't stay anywhere else now with our dog. Fantastic!!
