Front desk personnel are always helpful. Love the cookies and coffee in the afternoon. Very convenient to everything. I love the view from the second floor.

The front office staff was very accommodating and helpful. The property is in a quiet part of town, which we liked - but still convenient.

This was a pleasant older, but nicely maintained inn. We appreciated the location, part of the quaint town of Carmel, within walking distance to anywhere we'd want to go.

We were very pleased with the accommodations at The Dolphin Inn. No problems with parking, a short walk to shops and restaurants. Located in a quiet neighborhood. We'd stay there again.

The Continental Breakfast waiting outside the door in the morning was something different.

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn because they accepted gift certificates from bedandbreakfast.com, and because they seemed to be more geared-up for families. We got the "family" suite which really was two adjoined rooms, for hardly any more money than just one room. So the value was great - ton of space as well. The pool area was great considering that most places in this location do not have heated pools. The staff was super-friendly and accommodating. We had a few odd requests and they dealt with every one of them with a smile. It was clear that they put a huge emphasis on service. Breakfast was relatively simple but very good from a local bakery, and the coffee was 1st-rate as well. The rooms were so-so. If you are looking for 5-star luxury, they fall a little short, but they were comfortable and adequate for what we were looking for and certainly well worth the price. Location was excellent - just a couple blocks off the main street which is exactly where you want to be. Altogether I'd stay there again and recommend it to anyone, particularly those with families.
