Wonderful

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 6, 2010

My wife and I decided to take a trip to Carmel this summer as we had heard so many wonderful things about the city and the surrounding area. First order of business was to find a place to stay. While researching accomodations I came across the Tally Ho and found their web site appealing as well as past comments on the Virtual Tourist documenting other visitors experiences. We booked the Tally Ho for a 1 week stay and have to say it was probably the most wonderful experience we have had on a vacation. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. The room was beautiful, the view was spectacular, the service outstanding. The entire staff was so accomodating that you almost felt guilty asking for your free breakfast voucher every morning. We really feel that this facility and the experience is something we will treasure the rest of our lives. Thank you to all the great people at the Tally Ho.

Unique Quality: The fireplace in the center courtyard was a great place to lounge around and speak to fellow travelers. The view from our own deck, as we lounged on the comfortable furniture, of the ocean and the sunsets was spectacular. The room was spacious & equipped with a 50 inch flat screen television in the main room and a 18 inch flat screen in the bathroom that you could watch while you enjoyed the jacuzzi. The rooms were cleaned daily by a wonderful group of people and the chocalte mints left on your pillows were great. The shift managers always gracious and accomodating. The free breakfasts, not a continental but a full blown buffet with everything from fressh fuit to pancakes, was great.

Directions: Head to the beach down the main drag and turn right at the last stop sign before entering the hill leading down to the beach.

When I was researching hotels, I at first passed over the Tally Ho because of the cutesy name. But after I noticed the good reviews it received on the Net, I decided to give it a try.

It was a good choice. The pillow-top bed was ultra-comfortable, and there was an enormous flat-screen TV on the wall. The bathroom was elegant (see photo), and the bathtub was set up as a jacuzzi. There was even a TV on the bathroom wall, set on close-caption so that you could follow the dialogue over the noise of the jacuzzi. :) The $189 room rate -- the price below is per person, double occupancy -- was not out of line for a popular tourist destination like Carmel and actually very reasonable for the value we received.

In-room amenities included turndown service with chocolate mints, and the use of fluffy terrycloth robes.

We were very pleased with the Tally Ho Inn, and I would highly recommend it to others.

Unique Quality: Very warm, personal service here. When I'd made our reservations two months before, I had mentioned that we had chosen to celebrate our anniversary in Carmel because we had honeymooned there many years ago.

When we checked in, we found complimentary champagne in our room, with a handwritten note of congratulations from the staff!

Outside the rooms there are tables where you can share a drink and enjoy an ocean view, or where you can sit by the outdoor fireplace.

Coffee and newspapers are provided in the office in the morning, and there is a wine and cheese reception there in the evening. If you're there on a weekday (we weren't), breakfast is included at their sister hotel across the street. There's free parking in the small underground garage.

Directions: Uphill from Ocean Avenue
