Lovely Inn and perfect location in Carmel. 3 blocks to beach, 1 block to all shops and restaurants ts. Very nice room and bathroom, very comfortable bed

cute little cottage hotel right in the heart of carmel. just four blocks from the ocean and even closer than that to the best coffee shop, carmel valley coffee! very easy checkin, parking right out front of our hotel room door, friendly staff, quiet area. room was super clean and shower was incredible. highly recommend staying here. affordable and enjoyable!

wonderful place service is somewhat scaled back since pandemic.

It is near the shopping district, but it is an uphill hike. It is very congested in the area and their lack of on-site parking makes it a challenge to park at most times of the day and night.

I had stayed at the Normandy inn about 25 years ago and had loved the location. It hasn't moved! Some reviews had me nervous, saying how dated it was. Really? Our room was lovely. It wasn't the largest room of our vacation, but very nice. Wonderfully close to beach and restaurants!

The location was great. The room was very clean and spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Overall the room needed updating. The pictures were showing updated bathrooms, but we didn’t get one. There is no refrigerator in the room. Parking was limited but we were lucky to find a spot.

Beautiful room, very clean, great location! Very close to the beach and near the more lively end of downtown.

Nice hotel close to the beach and downtown. Accomodayions were lovely although the room never did quite get warm once i turned on the heat.

We had such a great time at the Normandy Inn! The location is perfect and the staff are wonderful. Sandy is the best :) The rooms are super cozy and clean - with old school flair. We come back here every year.

It is walking distance to beach and downtown. Great location for drives to Monterey and Big Ser.

Carmel is a quaint and scenic town. The hotel has minimal parking and guests fend for themselves parking on the streets. With no air conditioning the very least would be to equip each room with a fan but they chose not to do so. Poor way to treat patrons

Charming place. Good location for Carmel restaurants and shopping area.

Charming place in the heart of Carmel. Very comfortable too with a fireplace.

My expectations of this hotel were completely exceeded. From the friendly welcome and ease of checking in to the recently updated and clean room, to the great continental breakfast spread, prime location and other perks, staying here is absolutely worth it.
