Stayed here for 2 nights on an anniversary weekend. The desk staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was nice and clean, but if you really looked for it, was showing it's age. I picked this place based on price, location, and value: I must say it met all of my expectations and even exceeded a few. I would definitely return for another visit.

The Coachman Inn was a wonderful Inn in Carmel by the Sea. Our room was large and very clean each day. The breakfast was outstanding and the afternoon wine and snack lovely! We loved being located near the main street within walking distance to restaurants and stores. We were thrilled with our visit.

Every aspect about Coachman's Inn exceeded our expectations. We would absolutely recommend to others and would stay there again!

Excellent location in town, close to everything that Carmel is known for. Friendly front desk staff, helpful housekeeping personnel, comfortable rooms, and toasty fireplaces. Had a terrific weekend, celebrating our 35th anniversary. Why wait for your 35th, book your stay today. Very reasonable price too!

We were so pleasantly surprised with the size and quality of our room, service and food we received. Our room was very large with a wonderful fireplace and very nicely decorated. The cookies, afternoon appetizers and morning breakfasts were made at a kitchen on site and all were all so very good. Much more then cheese and crackers and powdered scrambled eggs. It is "OUR" place in Carmel by the Sea.

We had the pleasure of spending a night at the Coachman's Inn. Our room was clean, quiet and cozy, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and included fresh fruits, eggs, oatmeal, cereal and bread/bagels. The Inn is located in the center of Carmel, within easy walking distance to many restaurants and shops.

Coachman’s Inn is centrally located to the shops, galleries, and restaurants in Carmel’s walking district. The rooms are large and clean, and the afternoon “happy hour” hors d’ouvres are varied & generous. Excellent hot breakfast buffet, too, with fully prepared dishes (not those pour-your-own waffle machines). My only complaint is really more of an observation: The layout of the Inn is like a standard motel, rather than the cozy, intimate B&Bs Carmel is noted for.

Everything from the room to the staff exceeded our expectations. The gluten free options options also blew my wife away. The front desk was very helpful in answering our questions. We will definitely be back.

This inn was in the perfect location. Right in downtown Carmel! Just a minute walk away from all the shops. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was ok. The mattress was very hard and a little uncomfortable. The bathroom had a nice soaking tub but was really small with little counter space. Overall I would definitely stay again. You can't beat the location.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was lovely, and the rooms were beautiful. We look forward to staying here again.

We stayed here in March 2018. The experience was all around great! The location is right downtown and only a few blocks from the ocean. The only times we took our car out was when we were traveling in the area for the day. Also, the hotel keeps you well fed with home-baked goods multiple times a day (breakfast, cookies in the afternoon, wine & nibbles in the late afternoon/early evening) which was awesome. Anytime we needed to chat with staff, they were always super pleasant and accommodating.

This is a wonderful place to stay, we have stayed there many times before. It is a great value and a nice place to bring your pet, very spacious rooms.

My wife an and I always spend our anniversary in Carmel and have for the past 15 years. This was the first time we elected to stay at a different property than we had for the past 14 years. We had stayed at a Four Sisters property several times in Healdsburg, CA and decided to give this one a shot. We were right in doing so. Great location, twice the room size and a fireplace too! Looks like we found a new home for our anniversary stay in Carmel.

We can not say enough about how much we feel the true hart of Carmel when we stay at the Coachman. Karen and the entire staff are so welcoming and the breakfast served in the morning is amazing !

My wife and I recently spent we spent a leisurely 5 days driving from San Francisco to LA primarily following Highway 1. We spent 2 nights in Carmel-by-the-Sea at the Coachman’s Inn. We had a large, comfortable King Room with a fireplace. Very quiet location on the top (3rd) floor. If mobility is an issue be aware that they don’t have elevators and there’s no one to help carry bags. The room had all the amenities you would expect - coffee maker, plastic & glass glasses, decent hair dryer, lots of fluffy towels - and a very comfortable bed. Our only quibble about the room was the lack of a printed guide to detail television channels. Unfortunately the electronic guide on the TV itself gave no program schedule detailsso we had to scroll through all the channels to see what was on. And there were major gaps between channels. The room includes a very good breakfast buffet in a lounge adjacent to the lobby. Hot cereal, cold cereals, hard boiled eggs, a couple of omelette selections, fruit, toasters for bagels, raisin bread, English muffins. Coffee and juice. Afternoon wine and cheese was also included but we found the wines far too sweet for our liking. The desk staff couldn’t have been more helpful or welcoming. Same can be said for all the support staff. Previous reviews have commented on the scarcity of parking spaces. Our first night we had to park next to the front office on the street. Not a problem. But you need to move the car every 2 hours during the day after 10a. We moved ours on-site in the morning after it had emptied out and left it there the 2nd night. The Coachman’s Inn location is just a block off Carmel’s Main Street, Ocean, and you can walk everywhere in downtown Carmel, including the beach, in less than 5 minutes. Very good hotel, great location (although in truth it’s a 3-level high-end more than a hotel. I would give it 4 stars out of 5. We would stay again.

We had an amazing time. The Inn is beautiful and cozy. The staff is incredible. The town was/is perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Very nice play to stay right in the heart of Carmel. Just step out onto the street and find yourself in the middle of shopping, dining and wine. Great wine and appetizers in the evening, and breakfast in front of a fire in the morning.

Everything about Coachmens Inn was perfect! Even though it was unseasonably warm, the fan kept my room perfectly comfortable and I slept great. The staff was incredible, breakfast and the afternoon wine were great, and the location could not have been any better. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about my stay here! I traveled to four different places on this trip, with four different hotels, and no one even came close to the Coachmens Inn. I will most definitely be back.

A beautiful Inn with great service! We were welcomed with a warm smile and sent off the same way. Daily breakfast was plentiful and delicious and evening wine and appetizers was fantastic! The homemade cookies, scones and hot evening dips gave it a personal touch that made you feel like you were visiting family. This Inn does not have AC which was difficult given the unseasonably warm weather but I understand AC is typical for this area of CA given the usually cooler temperatures. They did provide a fan which helped and the windows do open to create a great cross breeze. The rooms that face the street are VERY noisy. Trash as come daily round 5-6 am as well as street noise made it sometimes difficult at night but the cool breezes were amazing. Rooms were very clean but the shower knob needs to be replaced, green mold was visible and small touch ups to rusting caulk and towel bars would go long way. These minor things would not keep us from coming back!! It was a wonderful place to stay. Beautifully kept property with a great location. Fireplace in our room and welcome note was a beautiful touch! Coachman Inn, thank you for making our 1st visit to Carmel perfect!
3.2 on September 28, 2017
The Inn was very lovely but the rooms were very small. It was unusually warm and bear in mind there is no air conditioning. We had to have windows open and were on ground floor. Automobiles in parking lot and foot traffic past windows was very annoying.
3.6 on September 19, 2017
Very hospitable and affordable place to stay in downtown Carmel. The mini fridge and microwave are indispensable and the included breakfast and light appetizers with wines are great. Excellent customer service too.
3.6 on September 17, 2017
The room was smaller than expected. It was extremely clean and the staff was very personal and receptive. Carmel was unusually hot during our stay and with no air conditioning, the room was quite uncomfortable. Breakfasts were excellent.

Stayed 2 nights and found location to be great. Closed to shops and restaurants. Rooms are not updated but clean. Very nice breakfast every morning and the management team were nice and helpful. Not enough parking for all guest rooms, so you may need to park on street overnight and then move it before 10am.

Stayed 4 nights while husband did business in Monterey. The Coachman's Inn is in the heart of the village making it walkable to shops, multiple restaurants, the beach, and the architecturally unique homes around the village. Stayed in Deluxe King on 2nd floor. Roomy, fireplace, shutters on the windows, two comfortable upholstered chairs. Couldn't ask for more. Small outside deck near our room was nice for reading, eating/drinking coffee, wine, etc.
4.4 on August 20, 2017
The Coachman's Inn is conveniently located close to downtown but within walking distance of the Carmel mission and beautiful walking trails. The fresh breakfast and evening Hors d'oeuvres were exceptional.

Over all our stay at Coachman Inn was nice. There was a couple of instances where the front office/hostess where it felt as if we were a bother to her. We arrived later and wanted to find a place to get ice cream. She told us there wasn't a place that had ice cream cones other then the small store. The next day when we were wondering around we happend upon the Carmel bakery and had a lovely ice cream while we walked the streets.

We loved our visit and we will be back. You are right in the reach of anything you might want to do. The beach is a short walk and the most beautiful place to go. Karen the manager was so pleasant and giving of her time. The little meals they put out are better than we've ever been offered before. It's clean and the only little negative was the side we stayed on was a little noisy.

My daughters and I traveled the coastline of California and only stayed at Coachman's Inn one night and truly wish we would have planned a longer stay but we managed to squeeze in a sunset, a great dinner at Demetra (truly a must but make a reservation) and of course a little shopping. Coachman's staff was delightful. I did peek in at the breakfast that was offered and it looked delicious but my daughters wanted to try a tea shop instead! Definitely would stay here again! and take advantage of all that is offered on site! The Mezz Girls

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at Coachman's Inn. We found the room to be very clean and well appointed. The sheets were extremely soft and we enjoyed the in room fireplace, mini fridge and coffee maker. The best feature was the location. It is easy to walk to any restaurants, shops, or the beach in Carmel. And the breakfast and afternoon happy hour were delicious! I would highly recommend this quaint Inn.

Wonderful/exceptional day trip - so kind that the day staff left the hot tub spa and sauna open after 9PM when we returned from dinner. Beautiful linens on the beds and wonderful staff. I would recommend Coachman's to anyone staying a day or a week in Carmel.

Coachman's Inn is a favorite Carmel place for over-nighting. It is freshly renovated, well-maintained, convenient to restaurants and shops in town, and stafffed with a crew of friendly people. We always feel welcomed. Breakfast, fresh cookies and afternoon wine keep us coming back.
5 on April 09, 2017
We LOVED this little place! It's small and quaint, but very friendly, comfortable, and clean. The happy hour before dinner was really good. Parking was limited, but we arrived at check in (at around 3) and found parking, no problem. We kept our car there the whole time and walked around downtown for dinner and to the beach the next day.
4.6 on April 07, 2017
The rooms are very clean, beds comfortable, and the fireplace is a great addition. The fireplace works well without adding much heat to the room. The only possible downside is that I do not believe there is air conditioning - but being there in March we didn't need it anyway. The breakfast and coffee were delicious.

Spent two nights at the Coachman's Inn. Took a friends recommend on this Inn and we were not disappointed. Great location, much appreciated generous happy hour and fine breakfast with lots of selection. Only quibble is with parking arrangements. Many of the on site parking spots were very tight and can only accommodate smaller cars. On street parking is available after 7:00 p.m., but obviously not as convenient. Housekeeping and overall cleanliness very acceptable. Would certainly stay again and recommend to friends.
4.4 on March 17, 2017
Room was much larger than expected. Very pleasant, quiet and clean. Breakfast in morning was very helpful and allowed for a quick start to the day. Really appreciated the onsite parking and the location which allowed us to walk very where in town.

The rooms are large, clean and quiet. The breakfast was very good, normally a hot entre and fruit, cereals toast and bagels. The happy hour food was very good as well and the wines served are enjoyable. The inn is in the center of town so you can park your car and walk to tasting rooms (one is right outside the front door) and restaurants. The inn has a parking lot as well, although it can get crowded.. Coachman's will be our home base the next time we go to Carmel. Well worth it

Carmel is a great walking community and staying at the coachman's inn puts you right in the canter of all the nightlife. Restaurants and winery tasting rooms are right next door.

Four Sister brand always our favor. Coachman's inn in Carmel is a very convenient place to stay. It is in the heart of Carmel downtown. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Especially, it has free parking on site, that is the big plus since it is very hard to get parking in downtown and also only 1 to 2 hours limit. The inn keepers are friendly, the room well furnishing and clean. The breakfast is adequate. However, the sound proof is not good. We stayed in the ground floor this time. In the early morning, there was a man non stop talking for 15 mins in the room just above us. We could hear him clearly. It was very annoying. For such old building, it might be very hard to correct the problem. Next time, when we stay there, just pray for no one making speech in the early morning.

The room that we stay was on the first floor, A little bit noise and little bit dark. It is laking some warmth hath the room.

As a Four Sisters Inn, the Coachmens Inn does not disappoint. Breakfast was tasty and the coffee good enough to avoid a starbucks run. Our room was cozy and had a fireplace which was nice. We used the hottub and attended the complimentary hors d'oeuvres offerings both nights we stayed. It's located walking distance to everything in Carmel including several restaurants we can now recommend such as Little Napoli (gourmet pizza), Il Tegamino (reasonable upscale Italian), and Cultura (upscale Mexican).

This was my second stay at The Coachmans Inn. I last stayed here on my last visit to Carmel in 2010. I was then accompanied by my wife who sadly I lost last year. The Inn is nicely situated close to the centre of Carmel. This is handy as there is no restaurant at the Inn. I was welcomed to the Inn by it's staff. The disappointing aspects were the quality of the breakfasts and the daily Wine & Hors d'oeuvres. I found the breakfasts mainly comprised fruit. There was some cereals but scrambled egg only occurred once during my 3 night stay. There was no bread but only Bagels. I did not find the food very interesting! I only attended one wine & hors d'oeuvres occasions. As I was travelling on my own, I found other guests ignored me. They were couples or 4s. The room allocated to me was lovely & spacious. The ensuite was clean and the shower was always hot. I also liked the wifi availability too.

We arrived late at the hotel and the manager had provided us with a way to get into our room with no problems. Our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the in-room coffee was delicious. The breakfast the next morning was very nice and plentiful. We really like the Coachman Inn!

Overall a very nice Inn in a great location with very nice rooms and friendly staff! The happy hour was very nice with well above average wine and food and the homemade cookies at 11 a.m. each day were a treat. My only complaint is being awakened by the garbage service which is out of the Inn's control. Would definitely recommend coming here!

It is walking distance from everything in Carmel. We will definitely be back!

Upon checkin, we asked for a quiet room and were immediately changed from a street-side room to a quieter spot by the very friendly attendant. The room was comfortable and spacious, with convenient microwave/refrigerator and charming fireplace. We appreciated the breakfast selections but felt a lack of variety, particularly in the area of tea (only basic black/green/peppermint) and fresh fruit (out of season melons were bland). In terms of teas, we recommend variety to include Earl Grey, spiced chai type teas, and herbs other than peppermint (such as hibiscus, rooibos, citrus, berry)

Coachman Inn was a great find! Right in the heart of the town, we could park our car and go exploring. After a fantastic breakfast with lots of choices, we walked to the beach and the mission (wear good shoes and be ready for a hike up hill upon return) and then lunch in town and returned to the Inn in time for wine and cheese in the lobby. The staff and other guests were very friendly, the room was spacious, tastefully decorated, and clean, and the jetted tub was a luxury at the end of the day! I love that Carmel is a dog friendly town, even though we didn't have ours with us, it made for a friendlier, happier environment! Thank you for a fantastic anniversary get away! Definitely a place I'd like to visit again!

We started out in San Diego with friends for a couple of days. Then flew to San Jose and drove to Carmel. Wonderful drive to an absolutely charming small town feel kind of place. The B&B was great, breakfast was different every morning and an added bonus was the 5pm meet and greet with hors devours and wine. We met some wonderful new friends from down under and loved how close everything is to walk to. The room was really nice and the staff were an especially pleasant surprise with their helpfulness, happy attitude and tips for things to do. We will be back and WILL stay at the same place again.

We spent two nights at the Coachmans Inn in Carmel. Early January, at the end of a road trip across California. Very friendly welcome, clean comfortable rooms if slightly old fashioned. Easy parking, good value for money, simple but more than adequate breakfast. Excellent location in center of this sleepy town. Wine and snacks at 5.00 pm were very much appreciated. WiFi was poor which is great if you want to talk, not so good if you are a sad geek!

This hotel was very convenient to all of downtown Carmel. It was very nice to have a safe place to park our car and explore Carmel by foot.

We had three rooms for a pre-Christmas family reunion. We had a great 2-night stay. Breakfasts were great and we enjoyed the wine and hors d'oeuvres each night. Location was perfect too: right off the main drag and within walking distance to the beach.

We had a great time at the coachman's- not only in our beautiful room but also hanging out in the cozy common areas during breakfast, wine reception and a rainy afternoon. Staff was extremely attentive and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Pricewise, this is definitely in the splurge category (for us) but we absolutely enjoyed this rare treat!

Coachman's Inn is a very nice b&b. Our 4 day stay was nearly perfect except the poor wifi reception. But everything else was so good, we did not mind.

Loved our stay at The Coachman Inn! It's right in the center of town, walking distance from everything. Service was outstanding and the breakfast was quite tasty, including an egg dish each morning (quiche or a scramble) and a good variety of pastries. We had a room with a fire place which was a nice since the temperature was fairly cool at night. They do seem to run out of parking spaces but there is street parking on the same block.

Spent two nights, very comfortable, clean, just like the photos. Very nice breakfast and Happy hour for wine and cheese. Located in the heart of Ocean drive, lots of shops and dining. Street side can be a little noisy depending on your room. Staff was excellent. We will return.

We celebrated our anniversary and loved the room and proximity to everything

We enjoyed our 3 day stay. With this location you are in the heart of Carmel, close to all that the town offers. You do get some road noises but that would be expected anywhere in mid town. The full breakfast and the afternoon wine, cheese and goodies does make for a pleasant stay.
4.4 on October 04, 2015
The location was wonderful, with many restaurants and other attractions within walking distance, Wonderful breakfasts, Only possible negative is hauling heavy luggage to a second floor room (no elevators and no bellmen). Nevertheless, worth pain and effort.
4.2 on September 30, 2015
We had a nice stay at the inn. Room was clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable. There's a lack of outlets in the room. Be aware, if u have a street side room, there will be noise from passerbys. There is a very nice complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon. Breakfast is adequate; the quiche was especially good. The biggest downside is that there's not enough parking for all the guests so you may have to park on the street.
4.4 on September 20, 2015
Fabulous Coachmans Inn! The room was one of the best we have stayed in! The staff are so friendly and nothing too much trouble. Wine and nibbles in the afternoon are a delight. Would definately stay again!

We enjoyed our stay at the inn. Loved the location. The dining room was under renovation and so not available to guests. Knowledge of this prior to making a reservation may have influenced our decision to stay there. The room rating would have been higher but internet connectivity was horrible. The staff worked hard to resolve the wifi issues, though.

Stayed at the Coachman's Inn while attending a family wedding. It was a wonderful stay. The rooms were spacious and welcoming. Even though there wasn't onsite dining, there are several restaurants in walking distance and one was recommended to us by the mange. It was delicious. We will definitely stay here on any future visits.

The Inn's location could not be better. The desk clerk was great. The manager less so. When we complained about the heat being stuck on in summer we were told it was supposed to be that way. It ended up that the repair man was able to fix it. Breakfast did not meet 4 sisters standards and was in a bag hung on the door and best left there.
4.2 on July 17, 2015
Very nice property and wonderful location. If you want a room with a fireplace besure to request that, I assumed all the rooms had fireplaces. That was my error. Property was very clean and beds were very nice!

This property is a great choice when in town. Front desk was extremely helpful, room was great and location is fabulous!

4.4 on May 07, 2015
Loved the room and the location...so close to everything we wanted to do in Carmel. The breakfast baskets were good, but the same every morning with a very small croissant and yogurt. We will be back though for the facility and the location! Nice room, very reasonable price and a fireplace. Very nice

The rooms were a very good size and we were very happy with the accommodations. I wouldn't go so far as to classify this place as a B and B though. The breakfast was very simple and there is no real communal places or meals. We enjoyed our stay though and would return.
4.6 on April 05, 2015
This Inn was perfect. Located in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. Comfortable rooms with lots of space and a fire place. Lots of outdoor seating areas. Great beds, bedding and pillows. We were very very happy.

Lovely room, awful wifi. We enjoyed the light breakfast and the jacuzzi. Please upgrade your wifi (with a wifi booster) and your coffee (weak and tasteless). Otherwise, a very nice stay.

The Inn is well located, walking distance to many local interesting spots including restaurants. We spent only one night on our trip from San Francisco to San Diego via CA-1 and planned to leave quite early in the morning and skipped breakfast (it starts at 8am). The microwave in the room was quite handy as we bought our breakfast in a grocery and could have it in the room. We stayed in a room on the ground floor with the window opening to the street. It was quite noisy in the morning with cars and people walking and chatting. It was not a big deal as we woke up early, before the noise started. But if you plan to have lazy mornings, ask for a room away from the street. It was spacious and clean. The king size bed also comfortable. . Parking is apparently insufficient for all guests and employees. There was no available spaces when I arrived, but the lady from the front desk promptly took hers somewhere else so I could park. By the way, all the employees we had contact were very pleasant and kind. About the value, it was a bit expensive (I paid more here than in many 5-star hotels in major cities), but this is Carmel in the weekend before President's day, so it was to be expected and it met all my needs. A note: I reviewed "Onsite Dining" as "met expectations" because the system won't allow an empty answers nor provides a "not applicable" option. I didn't have any meals in my stay.
3.8 on January 12, 2015
Nicely updated rooms at a very convenient location. We love that we can ditch our car and walk to dinner and shopping. The only complaint is that the walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbor snoring. But other than that it is a good hotel.
2.4 on January 10, 2015
I you must stay here, make sure you get a top floor. We we're up all night because of people above our room! We would not stay here again.
3.4 on January 05, 2015
Rooms need more counter space, table was too small for a laptop and coffee maker so had to move coffee maker to dresser. Bathrooms need more space, put some shelves about towel racks and above light switches. Had to put toiletries on the floor and shift them around a lot as there was very little counter space. Breakfasts were good and so were afternoon cookies. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Women at desk were very helpful and friendly.

Rooms are large, bright and comfortable. Staff is very nice. The morning continental breakfast delivered to your room is a nice touch. Hotel is located downtown and in easy walking distance to most everything in town. Great location for catching a show at the Sunset Center.

Very nice quaint hotel, but three person rooms are not made to accommodate three people. Could not watch Television, TV armoire was oversized with a small tv and was a waste of space, they should utilize the room and hand a tv on the wall like their other rooms. Bed posts were loose and dangerous if you touched them, Chair in room was a rocker and you would fall forward due to the style of the chair and was dangerous.

We stayed at the Coachman's Inn room 107 and it was fantastic. The room was very clean and the bed was really comfy. I loved the fireplace in the room, it made our stay very romantic, however it made the room really hot and without AC it got a little uncomfortable over time. The staff was very friendly and nice, overall it is a great place to stay in the middle of downtown!
3.4 on October 07, 2014
We enjoyed the Coachman's Inn. The room was spacious and very clean. The grounds were well tended with lovely flowering plants in pots throughout the area. The breakfast basket was a bit disappointing. We had limited choices for breakfast and the choices were the same all four days of our stay. The location was excellent-convenient to the beach, restaurants and shops.
2.8 on October 03, 2014
The room was large and clean. The inn itself was within walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and the beach. My only complaint is that the continental breakfast is offered too late.
3.8 on September 29, 2014
Centrally located, friendly staff. Only thing I didn't like, rooms overlooking parking lot and floral bedspreads and room was dark. Great location though!
3.8 on September 03, 2014
We were upgraded to a spacious room with a jacuzzi tub and fireplace, both of which were awesome. After watching the sunset at the beach We went to the Italian deli up the street and brought back finger food which we had for dinner along with a bottle of wine. We slept wonderfully in the king bed. Breakfast was a bucket containing two croissants and a bottle of orange juice left on our doorstep. A little lame -- we would have been willing to walk downstairs for something a little more substantial. Other than that, it was a great experience and we hope to return.
3.6 on September 02, 2014
We arrived early... several hours before check-in time of 3:00. We appreciated the on-site parking and the Inn's proximity to shops, restaurants and entertainment in Carmel-by-the-Sea. We stopped in at the front desk and were greeted warmly. We received information about several places where we might enjoy lunch and we were given a map of the area detailing shops, restaurants, etc. The young woman working the front desk offered to call us when our room was ready... she called just before 2:00 p.m. Our room was on the 3rd floor and nicely appointed (loved the Kuerig in the room). Bathroom was clean and updated... I'm very picky about bathrooms so this was important to me. The room was big enough for our needs though not as big as you would get in a newer chain hotel. The lovely old-world decorating of our room more than made up for the space difference. The bed was comfortable. I was a little concerned that there was no air conditioning but the outside temperature was cool at night and it was nice to sleep with the windows open. We didn't turn in our breakfast selections the night before as we were planning to hike the trails at Point Lobos in the morning so I can't comment on the food (This review form requires a rating of the dining experience. We didn't dine there so I just chose the middle rating). I would definitely recommend the Coachman's Inn.

Escaping the heat of Sacramento for a few days and our expectations there were met. Loved not having to move our car during our visit as everything but the Mission was within walking distance. The room was large and clean but had no view to speak of as we were on the ground floor facing a street. Definitely not a boutique size. The continental breakfast wasn't really worth the bother. Loved the Keurig coffee maker. All other amenities were appreciated.

Not quite a homey Bed and Breakfast, but if you'd like to wine and done in Carmel it's in the perfect spot.
