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. Breath taking views of both the cove and ocean, a bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting for us in our room at check in since they knew it was our anniversary. We used the hot...

This was by far the nicest hotel room we've ever stayed in. The views are unreal, we took pictures and it just doesn't capture the view and feeling you get when overlooking the ocean. We got a jacuzzi suite which was huge. Champagne upon arrival was a nice touch. I wish we could have stayed more than one night! And...

Tickle Pink Inn is one of a kind. You can't beat the size, location and attention to details at this place. It is very close to the Hyatt, which we tried one time, and the Tickle Pink Inn was SO much better! It is deceiving from the outside, but the rooms are amazing! This is probably one of my all...

Took my wife away for her birthday, and had a Great experience at the Tinkle Pink Inn. I would highly recommend this place. The views were great and the room we had was awesome, and the staff was very friendly. I am definitely planning a return trip and look forward to staying longer.

You pay for the views. We stayed in room 28 for 3 nights during our trip for our 5 year anniversary. We couldn't check in until 3pm which was fine. When we got in our room they brought us champagne and chocolates. Each night though they forgot our " bottles of water" which is supposed to be included each night....

My wife and I spend two wonderful days at the Tickle Pink Inn in early April. We had viewed the photos of our suite, #31, in advance, but you have to be there to appreciate the room and the view. It was so comfortable we didn't want to leave to go touring the area, though we did. I didn't see...
