A five-minute stroll. The Sunset Center, the region's premier arts venue? One block away. Boutiques, restaurants, galleries and wine tasting rooms? You're surrounded. One of the newest locations to be added to the Four Sisters Inn Collection, the Coachman's Inn resembles more of a small hotel than a bed-and-breakfast inn.

Comfortable Inn. Terrific location.

3.2 on November 30, 2017

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.


In the heart of the city

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.


The Coachman's Inn is a perfect in every way Bed and Breakfast Experience in Carmel-by-the-Sea

A quaint gem!

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!

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.

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.


Convenient location & comfortable rooms

We recently had a family reunion there and we had a really nice time. Everyone enjoyed their room and we were close to everything!


Great location, nice people

4.2 on August 31, 2017

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.


Charming, centrally located inn

4.0 on August 25, 2017

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.


Great Location

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.
