    Old school charm

    If you have stayed in historic hotels that are older, you would know that you can't expect all the modern luxuries that a chain luxury hotel would offer. This is a boutique hotel that is kept in charming but gently worn condition. It's lovingly taken care of, but doesn't have elevators or new furnishings. For my friends and I, it was perfect. The service and friendliness of the staff was warm and sincere. Even the florist who was arranging the flower bouquet in the lobby gifted a couple of my friends with stems of extra lilies that she had on hand. They were over the moon about the kind gesture. As for covid precautions, they made us feel safe. They kept masks on and even during breakfast, they had masked staff serve from the covered buffet while guests wore masks to take the food back to their individual tables. For a few seconds to a minute of minor inconvenience, it put the entire room at ease. We can take the masks off as soon as we get to our tables.

    Great location with good and bad that come w/ that

    Lovely hotel, excellent location. Parking is a problem - lot is not big enough to accommodate guests so had to park three blocks away though they gave instructions on overnight options. Don’t get a room facing Ocean - it was noisy through the night

    Great location

    Centrally located in downtown. Comfortable bed. No air conditioning, but didn’t need it as there was a nice breeze coming in the windows. No coffee maker in the room, either, but there is a coffee shop across the street. All in all, nice hotel.

    Historic Class in downtown Carmel

    Historic, Safe, Great location to Beach, Dining and Shopping. Restaurant on site. Be, a long time employee, concierge, waiter, bartender and hotel guide, was a highlight of the Pine Inn.

    Carmel charm

    Nice old world atmosphere. The only area that needs attention is the stair case that you use to enter. The carpet is very dirty and worn. Not a good first impression. Would like to be able to enjoy the lovely lobby with a glass of wine by the fire. Not allowed. Our room was very comfortable.

    Quaint, cute, lots of steps!

    This is such a quaint hotel. Loved the set up that felt more like rooms in a house vs a hotel. We totally lucked out with getting a spot to park on their lot. Get the staff help with luggage because there are only stairs. Front desk was awesome. Loved it so much we stayed a second night. Great location!
