“Lives up to the many raves.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We picked this place from all the great reviews and the internet pics. It really is wonderful. We hardly wanted to leave our room. The views are the best around. Cocktail hour and breakfast were just right and so nicely presented. Rooms were private and very romantic with many amenities.The staff here go out of there way to make people happy. Room service is available.
Outside hot tub for those who don't have in room whirlpools. Fresh baked cookies every afternoon.
You are high up on a cliff and it seems like you are in the trees with the ocean below.
Go for a room with cliff views.
We had room #33 which was huge with a fireplace, 2 person hot tub, king bed, large balcony. Only complaint would be that you hear people coming and going to outside hot tub, which was a minimal nuisance. This is a pricey place but certainly worth the splurge.

Room Tip: Cove rooms provide contrast of ocean waves hitting rocky cliff with the green of trees. You can also...

Great room, very comfortable and the view is amazing. The staff is very polite and friendly. It has everything you want in a special getaway in Carmel. Don't expect a brand new contemporary hotel. This is classic 60's style but with modern upgrades.

Room Tip: Some rooms have fireplaces. Some rooms have cove views and others ocean views so be sure to ask. Fee...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Tickle Pink Inn. We had a wonderful time. The view from our room was stunning. We had a balcony to sit and admire it. It was very relaxing. We had a fire every night which made for a romantic and cozy setting. The continental breakfast and wine and cheese in the afternoon were fantastic! You can even order room service from the restaurant next door. Just a wonderful experience. We would love to go back.

Room Tip: There are lots of steps to get to some of the rooms.

This hotel was NOT a disappointment! Very nice with amazing views of the ocean! Breakfast was wonderful! They called it an extended continental. Everything you needed! Beds were extremely comfortable as was the room itself. I would definitely go back. Very private and romantic.

Room Tip: We had a corner room without a fireplace. We still had a great view but in retrospect a fireplace wo...

We would have liked a lot more than a one night stay. Our cove view room was well equipped with a gorgeous outlook, sadly not warm enough to enjoy the balcony. The afternoon wine and cheese was a great plus, and we also enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace. Our next visit will be longer!

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our recent engagement. The women at the front desk were very friendly and let us borrow a pair of binoculars for our Port Lomas hike later that day. There is a long list of classic and recent movies available to borrow for free during your stay. All rooms have an ocean view. We did not attend the free wine and cheese tasting in the evening, but we did get the complementary breakfast and it was wonderful.

An hour after we checked in, a member of the staff brought us a bottle of champagne and a small box of truffles to celebrate out engagement. It was a complete surprise and very thoughtful of the staff.

We had a large king-size bed with very comfortable bedding. Everything was very clean. It was a perfect weekend, due in large part to our hotel stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have an ocean view so you really can't go wrong.
