I had the opportunity to stay at the Hofsas House last week. I wasn't sure what to expect, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. I often travel with my dogs in the summer, and the Hofsas House is a nice-quality yet affordable, pet-friendly inn. We were fortunate to be given Room 38, which is on the north end of the...

The Hofsas House is a quaint, beautiful inn, very peaceful and quiet, accommodations are always roomy and clean, and rates are very reasonable.

Stayed just one night, but would happily linger longer. Very well placed, in walking distance to the town and beach, quiet and clean. Following a long drive from LA, we were warmly welcomed by Renee, and our room met our needs exactly - no fuss or needless extras, just comfortable, airy and peaceful.

Our first stay we really enjoyed the balcony views of the Pacifdic Ocean (upper rooms). We love the location, how pet friendly and inviting all the staff and accomadations are. We joked a little bit about the Hofsas House decorations but liked the very reasonable prices. As returning guests they showed us some more comtemporary furnished rooms and also offered...

We made our stay at the lovely Hofsas House Hotel, a dog-friendly, family-owned boutique inn with 38 uniquely decorated, spacious rooms, many with ocean views overlooking the pines in the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Dutch doors can be found in each room, which allows guests to enjoy the fresh ocean air. And guests can take in glorious sunsets over the Pacific...

Very reasonable place to stay in lovely Carmel. And besides for the AAA discount, the owners give an additional discount for returning visitors to the hotel. If you are looking for an ultra swanky place this is not it. It is an older hotel, but very very clean and well maintained. Has a great little heated pool and sauna room,...

I will start with the few pros to give it the 2 rating.: * The staff were very friendly and are dog friendly by giving you a blanket for them to sleep on. * The location is near shopping and if lucky to get an upper floor has very nice views. * The continental breakfast is a typical pastry breakfast...
