Cypress Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Cypress Inn is heaven for pet owners. All common areas, lobby, entry area, bar and restaurant are so comfortable and invite interaction with other guests. The Cypress Inn is a happy place where visitors and their pets meet and enjoy the wonders of Carmel.

No A/C, but big ceiling fan, didn’t need to use. It is extremely cozy with ambiance, staff is super, food is excellent. Room was small, it felt like it was among a comfortable community. Wasn’t superficial. Rooms had no smell at all, even though dogs are allowed

From the second you arrive at the door, you begin to de-stress. The friendly and helpful staff, the old world charm, the lovely sherry carafe in-room waiting for tired travelers, the fun and relaxing evening live music in the great room from cocktail time on, the Doris Day movies that run all day in the lounge and her memorabilia on the walls, the excellent food in intimate setting, the wonderful shops just steps away, and the beautiful beach within walking distance, all these make for a one of a kind experience that will make it hard to leave and easy to look forward to!

Great if you want to bring your dog. Convenient location. Charming. Luxurious? No. This is a charming little place and pictures of Doris Day are everywhere. I love Doris Day but the street had too much noise and the rooms are small. Staff weren't the friendliest or best trained and the parking lot gate broke so had to hunt for parking. Not really super extraordinary place.

Very good location.Near everything you need for a pleasant stay.The charming of the hotel is exactly what you will expect for Carmel.If you are a movie fan or music fan.Then you definitely have to stay here.

What is excellent: the staff, the location, the restaurant, the live entertainment, the rooms, and the staff (yes said twice, they deserve it). We come to Carmel each year to run the Big Sur marathon and a few additional times a year just because we love it. This was our first time staying at the Cypress Inn and we will be regulars from now on. What is not excellent? Nothing.

Once more unto the Cypress Inn dear friends, once More!! Yet another fabulous stay at the charming, inviting and characterful Cypress Inn, Carmel . . It never fails to delight . . from the warmest welcomes (every time), through to fond farewells, with constant care & concern from the staff for all aspects of our stay, it is more like a home-from-home than a hotel. The food is fab, the drinks are deee-lish & the ambience is relaxing, convivial & stimulating.The Cypress Inn is co-owned by the delectable Doris Day and the delightful Denny LeVett, whom we had the immense pleasure of meeting again and were able to thank in person for our splendid stay . .

My 16YO Daughter and Westie spent one night and two days in Carmel. I can not recommend a better, pet friendly place to stay. Our dog was treated like royalty at the Cypress Inn and other dog friendly locations in Carmel. Literally every guest came by to meet our Westie "Skittles" . I almost feel like it was Skittle's vacation and we were just her entourage. We will go back again and hope to make this an annual trip!

A delightfully friendly inn located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The staff is especially helpful and the lounge entertainment is lovely. The location is perfect for browsing shops and visiting other restaurants. It is walking distance to the beach which is a plus.

for us, this is the place. Well run, dog friendly, people friendly, old school with modern upgrades....charm, history, great shopping in the best location in the best town on the most beautiful coastline with the best weather in the world. Walk to the beach where your dog can run free. watch the sunset. Just stunning! feeling really spoiled and loving it!
