Lobos lodge offers location and intimacy at half the price of similarily ranked TA hotels in or close to Carmel. The rooms are large with a gas fireplace and sitting area. There is a balcony with chairs to enjoy the weather in warmer months. Wireless access comes with the room. Room delivered breakfast is a quick starter for those who...

My mom, sister and I stayed at the Lobos Lodge for a girls weekend and had a very pleasant stay. We had two different rooms, my mom and my sister stayed in the king suite room#41 and I stayed in a king room #33. The suite was a great size, allowing us to sit together by the fire, have breakfast...

Our stay at Lobos Lodge was average. After just leaving a wonderful B&B in Napa, we were a bit disappointed at first, however the room really was fine. This is maybe the 4th B&B/guest house style lodging we've tried in Carmel, and all of them including Lobos Lodge have dated decor and facilities. I have yet to find a quaint...

It had been almost 15 years since our last stay at the Lobos Lodge and we were curious to see what it would be like now. I am pleased to say that it has stood the test of time and remains a fine place to stay in the heart of Carmel. Our king room was on the courtyard, a veritable...

The Lobos Lodge is excellent for its location and value in Carmel. The staff was incredibly friendly as well. I was also a great fan of the beautiful courtyard and flowers within the lodge. I would recommend the hotel for my friends and family.

Despite turning up on spec the staff were very helpful and although we had to move to another room for the remaining 2 nights of our 3 night stay they transferred all our stuff so that we could concentrate on enjouing the sites of Carmel. The complimentary breaksfast was a little on the sparse side but overall it was an...

I booked this hotel after reading all the positive reviews and it did not disappoint. We arrived late after a long drive and had a warm welcome and a speedy check in. The rooms are roomy but feel quite cosy with white washed beams and gas flame fires. The bed was massive and really comfortable. A continental breakfast is included...

We stay at Lobos four times a year. Won't tell you our favorite rooms as we want to ensure we can reserve them. But suffice it to say that all the rooms are pleasant and unique in their layout. Each room has a spacious living area as well as sleeping area with fireplace. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The management...

We stayed in room 18 for two days in August. I liked the separate dressing area, full size couch, peak of the ocean, and breakfast delivered to our door at the time we requested. The rooms are in different buildings around a pretty, central courtyard, giving it a European feel. Easy walk to the beach or downtown - we even...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. What a nice place! The room was huge. (We were in room 12). The room had a fridge and gas fireplace! Since we were on the first floor, we didn't have much of a view, but I would imagine on the 2nd floor you can see the ocean....
