The Hideaway

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent breakfast and wine in the evening. Wonderful atmosphere next to the fireplace for conversations. The location is just a few minutes walk away from the Ocean Avenue. At night it is absolute silently.

The hotel is perfectly situated, close to Carmel Plaza and the many shops and restaurants Carmel has to offer. The hotel was immaculate, we had a beautiful big room with fire. The evening cheese and wine was a great bonus and all the hotel staff were very friendly they couldn't do enough for you. The hotel also has a lovely outdoor seating area with firepit which was great in the evening.

Enjoyed our stay at The Hideaway, easy to walk around the residential part of town to look at charming cottages or to walk to stores & restaurants (Carmel Plaza within 5-minute walk). Rooms are spacious, modern and bright to assure good rest as there are many things to do in the area. Parking just in front of the Hideaway was not hard to find when we were here. Also enjoyed the wine-cheese served in the afternoon as well as breakfast in the morning. Overall a very comfortable stay and we would definitely consider this property again for our future visits.

Our little getaway to the Hideaway was just what we needed. The hotel was only 15mins walking to the beach, large dogs were allowed, and the staff was so sweet. We will be staying there next time we are in town!

Very nice room, very clean, well appointed. No parking on site. Some noise issues. Very comfortable bed, good amount of space in the room. Close to many shops, restaurants, walking distance to the beach. Friendly, informed , helpful staff.

Good service at check-in. Rooms are nice enough. Hotel is close enough to Big Sur are for access to parks, trails, beaches during the day and is in a great location in to walk to restaurants, shops, etc. in Carmel.

We love our stay at The Hideaway each time we visit Carmel. It’s conveniently located in downtown, but still tucked away and quiet. The rooms are updated and tastefully decorated, the beds very comfortable. The extensive breakfast spread in the AM and the wine & cheese service in the afternoons are both enjoyable amenities of this property.

The Hideaway is a wonderfully charming Inn. The rooms are clean, spacious, delightfully bright and include all the amenities you’d ever need. It was cozy and quaint, the brunch was delicious, the beds comfortable, the staff was very friendly and gracious. We are excited to go back soon!

Stay always amazing. Wine and cheese amazing. Location amazing. Staff amazing. Everyone was extra friendly. The food at breakfast could use improvement. Options a bit limited and odd tasting ( like the stale croissant and eggs tasted a bit odd)

Everything was so nice and clean. The perfect place to stay when you are far from home and want to relax and enjoy your vacation. We would recommend to anyone traveling in the area. Thank you to a wonderful staff.
