Carmel is just fantastic, but expensive to stay in during the summer. We chose this hotel because it was reasonable and got relatively good reviews. And we were surprised on the upside. We had two couples, and the rooms were clean and spacious, the bathrooms were really nice, and we had partial ocean views. The continental breakfast was provided in...

We stayed here in for one night in July on our road trip through California and ending up in Vegas. All in all we stayed in 6 different accommodations from luxury hotels to small B and Bs / inns like this one. I have to say these B and Bs / inns have left me with absolutely wonderful memories of...

We returned here after a six year gap. The hotel is well located just a short stroll from the centre of beautiful Carmel. It has enough car parking which is a distinct advantage at most times The friendly welcome beats any chain hotel with all kinds of help and advice freely given Indeed it included a list of restaurants and...

Good location, but the room was in terrible need of updating. Mold in the shower area. Furniture old, dingy, and even torn. Carpet had several burn marks. Street noise was terrible, I thought a window was open, it was so loud. Breakfast was nice and the individual coffee was good. Extremely overpriced for the condition of the room. Would not...

We take great pride in the cleanliness and appearance of all our rooms. It is evident that one downside of being exceptionally busy is trying to keep pace with the deep cleaning that we routinely under go. We thought we had gotten through the list, but we certainly appreciate you alerting us to one that needs to be touched up....

Bottom line: this was the worst stay I've had at a hotel in years. Our room had to be over 90 °F the night we stayed - granted, the area was in the middle of a heat wave - and we got absolutely NO sleep. When I complained in the morning, I was told, "sorry, you should have asked for...

Thank you for recognizing that we were in the midst of a very unusual heat wave when you were here for your one night stay last month. Thank you for also acknowledging that we do provide an answering service for hotel related problems after regular office hours. I'm sorry if we did not make it clear that we do have...

What a gem of a small botique hotel. The staff is most friendly, service is excellent, location is great and the basket breakfast delivered to our door in the morning was the icing on the cake. If you are in Carmel and looking for accommodations make sure you book here.

We loved our room. It was quiet, spacious, large bathroom and wonderful shower. We highly recommend this Lodge for it's privacy and great location which is walking distance to downtown Carmel. This was our first stay at Horizon and we will stay here the next time we drive to Carmel from Oregon.

We were impressed by the lovely room, the reasonable price, the very helpful staff at the front desk, and the quiet. Because it is four blocks from Ocean Avenue (the main drag), we did not hear any traffic noise at all. Each morning a basket of delicious breakfast goodies appeared at our door. The items in it were different each...

We stayed for one night before driving down the Big Sur. On arrival we got a warm welcome with lots of useful information about Carmel. Our room was very clean and a good size. You get your breakfast in a basket which is put on your door step in the morning. This is a good idea but there wasn't really...
