Had to get away from the house for a termite fumigation, and we were very concerned about going into the world during these times, so to speak. But this was a wonderful inn, and I was surprised by their ability to maintain hospitality while also insuring cleanliness, social distancing, etc. Loved the little touches like individual cookie bags, cleaning wipes, evening fire, and local recommendations, and the office staff was so kind and accommodating! Completely recommend.

Our room was beautiful and the staff was so accommodating and kind! We would definitely go back 😁.

Goods: Very charming place...large, clean and fresh rooms. Great location just off of Ocean. Nice little breakfast basket delivered to the room in the morning. Great touch. Bads: Both myself and a colleague who were staying here for business had problems with our key cards and door locks (every time we tried to get into the room). The sink had issues as well. Note that there is no air conditioning, so you'll need the windows open if you like sleeping cool. Unfortunately the area is quite loud in the AM so you'll be up early. All in all this was a very nice place and I would actually return as I think the issues I experienced are easily resolved.

We had an amazing night at the Candle Light Inn, from check in to the time we had to leave. Surprisingly, the room was very clean, well decorated and very comfortable. The inn is centrally located to the beach, restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the firepit in the evening as well as the cookies that were delicious! The front desk staff are extremely friendly, efficient and very professional. Overall, we enjoyed our time at this venue and will be back here next time we will be visiting Carmel.

Excellent staff and service. Beautiful and very clean room. Great breakfast brought to door.

Clean, quiet and nice sized room with all important amenities-kruig machine, mini fridge, bathroom products.

Our room and bathroom were very clean and cozy. Tea and coffee in the room and office were very comfortable. Staff were very friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was great, and so was the staff. They brought a continental breakfast to our room each morning, per our selection. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Location, Comfy Beds, Large Rooms, Nice Area, and Free Continental breakfast delivered to your room every morning.

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel...very peaceful and quaint. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Some of the cons are that the place is a little outdated, and they don't serve hot breakfast. Besides that, really good location and I would definitely stay here again.

No amenities on site but tons close by within a few hundred yards. Close to the action but quiet in the evenings nights and mornings. Perfect. Bed supper comfortable rooms bigger than average. Friendly all around.

My wife and I had such a great weekend in Carmel. The staff at Candle Light Inn was wonderful and helped make our stay even more enjoyable. I can't say enough about the location, just perfect! We will be back soon.

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!

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.

Very charming. Breakfast served in your room in a cooler. Very nice people and very accommodating.

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.
