It's an old building, with old rooms, fixtures, furnishings. But considering the lack of reasonably-priced hotel choices in this area, Carmel Lodge did the job for me.

Great location free parking and clean room! Our room had a balcony and loved using it. Would return again!

The staff was welcoming and accommodating. The property is aging and hasn't been upgraded or maintained in many years (e.g. a missing door on the armoire, corrosion on the brass plumbing fixtures). That said the room was small but comfortable. The bed was comfortable for both of us. The continental breakfast was delivered to the room and was formulaic but tasty and carries you till lunch. I will stay here again,not luxury by any stretch of the imagination, but conveniently located and over all a pleasant experience. We parked the car and were able to navigate for three days on foot.

The staff was very warm, welcoming and accommodating and the facilities are top-notch. The location was perfect -- within walking distance to restaurants, shops and the beach.

Higher end motel. Updated and clean although could use some air freshener. Can’t beat the location and price. Felt very safe there even as a solo traveler. Front desk staff terrific and nice croissant and berries delivered to your room for breakfast,

Excellent service. They bring a morning breakfast to the room. The breakfast is ok, with a croissant, fruit and coffee. We ended up cancelling that. the rest of the stay was excellent, and the front desk was always helpful.

Staff was pleasant. They checked us in. Let us park earlier than check in. Took a breakfast order for each of us which was never delivered. Rooms were older- needed updating. Kind of pricey overall. Wouldn't stay there again.

Excellent customer service. Staff went the extra mile for sure. Excellent location. Thanks to the staff, we'll be back.

Great break staying in Carmel for an overnight...always love it there. This was our second stay at Carmel Lodge and enjoyed it more than the first time. Comfortable rooms and overall experience. The location is fairly central, a few blocks from Ocean Ave where all the main shops/restaurants branch off. Will most likely stay there again next time around. All in all, a little dated but clean and relaxing.

If you want to park your car and enjoy a walk through Carmel, this is the place. We ate dinner just across the parking lot and breakfast 1 block away. Clean and pet friendly.
