Fantastic getaway!

My wife and I booked a room at the Candle Light Inn for her birthday. We were impressed with the customer service of the Inn and the accommodations of our room. The Inn is walking distance to shopping plazas, restaurants, and the beach. I would highly recommend this place!

Please stop by Dametra Cafe! You won't regret it! My wife and I made a reservation for dinner and when we walked in, it felt like we walked into a whole another world. The wait staff was excellent, the ambiance was great, and the food was out of this world!

Great weekend getaway, including hiking and sightseeing.

The service was awesome! They provided great advice on where to eat locally. When we came back to the Inn from dinner they provided complimentary coffee, cookies, fruit. We sat at the large outside fireplace to enjoy our refreshments. Very nice setting.

Great location

Just a couple of blocks off of Ocean Blvd (the main drag) nice walk to the beach and close enough to many fine restaurants, galleries and shopping. No walk by hassles because of the orientation of the property. Felt like it was a secluded hide-away. Our room had the big Jacuzzi style tub. Very difficult to start the jets but wonderful once it was going. The fireplaces are a nice touch in Carmel and the hotel did provide the Duraflame logs. The couch needs to be comfortable for the price. The nicer places, like this, need ceiling fans.

GOOD CARMEL HOTEL

The Candle Light Inn is a nice, small inn located downtown Carmel and close to Ocean Ave. It is clean and neat. Provides a breakfast delivered to room. Discounts are offered for participating restaurants. No A/C. Basic bath. I would recommend the inn.

Visit to Carmel

My husband and I stayed at the Candlelight Inn for two nights in July. It was our first time to visit Carmel. The Inn was very charming and clean. The room was spacious and comfortable. We had the room with a shower only and the bathroom was very nice. It was a great location to walk in to town. There was a really nice fire pit that we enjoyed each evening.We had a refrigerator in our room which was nice and the tv had a ton of channels. The breakfast was delivered to our door in the morning and it was acceptable but not fabulous. We had a keurig coffee maker in the room that was great. I would definitely recommend this charming little Inn.
