My husband and I loved The Tickled Pink property in Carmel California! Good friends who also travel frequently recommended it to us. To be honest I was not sure after hearing the name. When we arrived I was initially underwhelmed. However, when I saw the room with a magnificent view with terrace and comfortable chairs, I was very pleased. Our...

just returned from Carmel after staying at the Tickle Pink. This place must have the best view of the Pacific coast in California. We stayed in room 14 which had a king bed, fire place, nice bath and the most amazing deck overlooking the coast. The service was great and very helpful about restaurants and things to do in the...

We just returned from a fabulous trip touring California and the Tickle Pink Inn was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! After staying in San Francisco for several days we rented a car and drove down the coast to our first night on the road. What a ways to start a road trip!! At first I was a...

In late February my wife and I traveled South to Carmel. We had never been there before. In looking for a hotel, the Tickle Pink Inn name caught our attention. After reading existing reviews, we booked the Inn. When we arrived, we were quickly checked in and then introduced to a beautiful room overlooking the Pacific. Shortly after entering our...

Just a wonderfully romantic hotel nestled on the hills of Carmel. Can't wait to come back. Balcony room was a real treat and the anniversary champagne was a nice touch. Super service where recommendations were spot on for dining and what to do and see. Felt like a guest in someone's home.

I had planned many years ago to stay here but my trip was cancelled. My husband and I just retired and drove down the Oregon and California coast and did no upfront planning, just going where the road took us. When we rolled into town we decided to check the inn out. We got the suite room 6 and as...

After doing research for a place to go for a week of relaxation in the Monterey/Carmel area last March, my wife stumbled on to the Tickle Pink Inn website. Based on the reviews and pictures we could see, we decided to give it a try. Neither of us had been to that area of California since a VERY young age...

This lovely little inn is charming and friendly. From the moment when you arrive to freshly baked cookies and helpful staff to the bottle of champagne provided to us the first evening, everything was perfect. Our view of the ocean was breathtaking and something I will always remember. We enjoyed the hot tub, the wine and cheese in the afternoon...

My husband and I were on a 'second honeymoon" for our 27th anniversary and this could not have been a better hotel for us.
