Have stayed at the Normandy Inn many times; always a great getaway. Quaint, very well maintained buildings. Some rooms with fireplaces. The lobby has a fireplace and the adjoining library is a quiet place to read or have coffee. WiFi is available in the lobby and library. Within walking distance of the Carmel shops and art galleries as well as... More

We stayed in a duplex cottage, which was built in the 1920's. I enjoyed the unique architecture and clean room. However, the walls are thin and we were at the mercy of the inhabitants of the adjoining room. Unfortunately, they were very noisy but the management was helpful. Like everyone else, we headed for the beach to watch the sunset,... More

After staying one night at a chain hotel in Carmel, we cancelled the remaining two nights there and booked a night at the Normandy Inn. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was huge. There were three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a very large living room and an attached dining area, a kitchen, and a back patio. The... More

Normandy Inn is an old building that is well maintained, lots of foliage and flowers, steps going up and steps going down. Room 319 was very basic, yet clean, probably recently painted, nice windows and shades, the bathroom long and narrow and also well maintained. The swimming pool was right outside the room. Water was clear, heated, no one was... More

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. Everything was great. Bed was super comfortable. Close to the beach and shopping. Room very large and very clean. I didnt make a reservation and happened upon it and it was the cheapest room of my whole 2 week vacation and the nicest.

My friends and I stayed at the Normandy Inn and were very happy with the hotel and its location. Some reviews say the rooms need updating, but I think they are quite fine. Carmel is not about new and fancy - it's cozy and charming and so is the Normandy Inn. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was quite... More

Arrived in carmel and just came across this lovely place by chance. We were greeted by a very helpful lady in reception who gladly showed us one of many bungaloes situated all on one level in Ocean street. We were four, so we took two. They were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Free breakfast and sherry in the evening made... More

Three of us stayed in the Normandy Inn for a night. One thing I have to say right off the bat, is that I thought it was very backward and strange that this hotel states on their website that they don't answer emails, and that you must call them to book. The buildings are very prettily painted, and the gardens... More

We stopped in Carmel for a night on our trip on the California 1 and I got a good deal as a AAA member. It is right in the center of Carmel by the sea, very nice and clean room, no air conditioning, but the temperature goes low at night so there was no need. Typical breakfast in the morning,... More
