The accommodation is laughable. What looks good in the photos doesn't look so good in reality. If you built yourself a holiday cabin and you had never built anything before this is what you'd end up with. There is some sort of light industry next door. If you limit your gaze to about 30 degrees out of 360 then the...

We spent the day meandering through the tasting rooms and galleries in the little downtown area of Carmel Valley and decided to stay overnight. The Country Garden Inn had vacancies so we decided to give it a shot! We are SO glad we did! This property has been updated from an older one but has plenty of charm, excellent cute,...

We booked a room on-line and were unsure what to expect. The property is a bit dated, but it is very well maintained and located in a beautiful setting. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and we slept very well during the night. This is a great location for exploring the peninsula. The breakfast was great as well. We...

My expectations for this inn were high after seeing the reviews and the pictures. I was expecting something cute and quaint. The lodging building is just a charmless 1960's era motel. The room furnishings are new, and the room seemed clean enough. But the bath, windows, etc. are all very dated and tired. I reviewed the pictures on the inn...

A quick weekend getaway to Carmel Valley brought us to this spot. The location is wonderfully tucked away in the heart of Carmel Valley. The rooms are a short trip down a hill from the office, and provides a very private retreat. The rooms are nicely sized with high ceilings. The decor is a little dated, but I believe there...

What a wonderful place. The staff was terrific. They have a lovely room for breakfast and I was getting food to bring back to the room. The staff brought me a basket, paper cups with lids and everything I needed. The room was super quiet, roomy and clean with a pretty view of the gardens and pool. I saw much...

I left my electronic toothbrush in the room. I didn't even realize it until they wrote me and asked if I wanted it sent to me. I've never had this happen successfully before.Other places have promised to do this for me without succeeding.

We had a king family fireplace suite. The room was large and spacious. The coffee in the room was actually good. The room was clean and nicely appointed. Their breakfast was very good with a nice variety and good quality. It is an older style inn, but it is quaint and appears well maintained. The staff were all friendly and...

If at check in they tell you that your room is in the back and a bit dark.... believe them! The room was very dark, depressing, light bulbs were even low wattage, and the walls very thin. At the very least ask for an upgrade!!

We stayed here for a wedding, this location was one of the bride's recommendations. The couple working here were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The room (Room #1) was adorable!
