More about Carmel Resort Inn

Affordable Hotel in Carmel

by lisabel.smith about Carmel Resort Inn

We stayed at Carmel Resort Inn. I would admit that we had a fantastic experience in this bed and breakfast / inn / hotel. Not very expensive, it fit our budget.

The staff was very courteous. Rooms were clean. Moreover, they did not charge us for late checkout.

I would recommend this hotel who is on budget, and want to have a great vacation in carmel.

Carmel Resort Inn folks, keep up the good job. We'll see you again in spring. Clean Rooms, Courteous Staff, affordable, close to everything.

Rocky Point Restaurant

by yoyosh


My girlfriend and I are vacationing in a few weeks in Monterey, and thought about driving down to the Rocky Point Restaurant for a lunch or just drinks. Is that considered an exceptional view or will we have our fill of similar views driving to and from San Fran? Any feedback is appreciated, thanks in advance!

It's better than the view along Hwy 1 between SF and Santa Cruz, but if you want the best drive and view and setting for a meal go a few miles further south to Big Sur, to the restaurant called Nepenthe. They have an outdoor deck if the weather's good and you can see 50 miles down the coastline. There's a fantastic craft/gift shop there as well called The Phoenix. At one time Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth owned this property.

Thanks for the tip. About how of a drive is it from Monterey (the Cannery Row area)?

Re: Rocky Point Restaurant

by brotherleelove

You mean how long a drive from Cannery Row to Big Sur? About an hour, maybe less.

I've heard Nepenthe has a gorgeous view but is overpriced and disappointing! A friend spent $200 for 4 to dine seated in plastic patio chairs .... *shrug*

Travel Tips for Carmel-by-the-Sea

go on the 17-Mile Drive.... ...

by Krystynn

go on the 17-Mile Drive.... It actually leads you on a scenic tour of some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.

And the admission fee per entry? US$7. Don't let the price of admission deter you from visiting this place. It's really, really worth it!

On another note, the feeding of wildlife here (any kind of wildlife!) is RESTRICTED because it may jeopardize the safety of these wild animals and damage the landscape. So, DO NOT FEED any animals that you spot along the way!!!

China Cove at Point Lobos

by SteveOSF

China Cove protects a beach that can be accessed from the Bird Island Trail. A natural arch spans the water at the cove. As the beach is much lower than the trail, one needs to descend a lengthy wooden staircase to reach the beach below. From the Bird Island Trail, China Cove presents a scenic vision.

A Pet Lovers Paradise !

by cnango

Carmel is a great place to go on vacation with Mans Best Friend. This dog friendly town has numerous places to pamper your pet.From a dogs only drinking fountain at Carmel Plaza, to dog friendly Carmel Beach and several shops that sell specialty doggy items.The most famous dog lover in Carmel is Movie Star Doris Day, who owns the Cypress Inn. Dogs are not only welcome at her charming Inn they're given the royal treatment including a dog biscuit turn down service. The web site below lists the many places in Carmel that cater to Dogs.

Some interesting things to...

Some interesting things to note in case you decide to migrate to Carmel-by-the-Sea..... ;-))

It sounds kinda strange but a permit is actually required to wear certain high heel shoes here!! I kid you not! I read somewhere (in one of the travel guidebooks) that since part of Carmel's charm is its urban forest, walking may be more difficult than elsewhere and an ordinance was thus created for liability reasons (though rarely enforced)! Hm....

There is no mail delivery service here! IF you DO have mail, you'd go to the Post Office on 5th Avenue between Dolores and San Carlos Streets to pick it up. Really. And the post office is one interesting place to meet your new neighbors....

Also, most streets in the residential areas have no formal curbs and gutters. Streets are rarely paved to their full width and often meander around trees and landscaped areas.

Have a great holiday!
