A quaint location that is very well located for walking around central Carmel. The staff is excellent in every way. We very much enjoyed the wonderful breakfast and chance to visit with other guest. We stayed in a two bedroom (loft & ground floor) cottage. It had a cozy feel including a nice gas fireplace controlled by thermostat. Included a...

We stayed for 1 night recently and I wish I had planned to stay longer. The location is fantastic! So close to the central town, and the sea. The accommodation is great, very clean and tidy, and the service was really good. Our host took the time to provide us with maps and point out all the sights to see...

We had a short weekend stay in Carmel and came late on Saturday without problem. Slept well in a dog friendly room with our dog. Breakfast was nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the short walk to the beach before breakfast.

The green lantern Inn was great for a one night stay. Room is smallish but cosy and comfortable. There was no vegan breakfast though, so had toast and peanut butter, which is fine. Well located too and very friendly staff

I went to Carmel knowing very little about it, but the city is just like it has been brought from some fairy tale to real life, but without the awkward parts, and then this Inn came to complete my good time there. Good people at the staff, very good breakfast, and even the shower being lower than my neck (I'm...

We stayed in the Palm room which is quite small. We had two suitcases and there wasn't really room to put them and since the room was in an attic the roof sloped so much so that you needed to duck quite low to get from one side of the bed to the other. I also needed to duck to...

we stayed here 8 years ago and enjoyed our stay here again. The new owners are doing things to upgrade the property. It's very sweet and rustic. The breakfast is good and the staff is very nice. Wish there was a hot tub and/or outdoor fire pit, but the grounds are very pretty.

Reviewed 21 October 2016

Some things have changed since new ownership, but nothing that would keep us from staying there again. The Management/Staff were very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was continental style, but also included an entrée that was served to the table. The location couldn't be better. Walking distance to all shops/restaurants and also to the beach.

“We booked a 2 room suite. The reason I gave a 4 star for sleep quality is because I had the smaller room with what looked like a futon. My other family members had the main room with a queen size bed. Their quality of sleep was excellent. I enjoy the fact this hotel did not require a minimum time of stay with such a short notice”
