There are many small, affordable motels in Carmel. Most are fine. Some are very good. This one is better than that. We enjoyed a very nice, large room with separate bath and sitting area. The rooms are meandered across different levels. The grounds are impeccable and the service friendly. And the location is ideal - at the bottom of Ocean...

This hotel is perfect. It's in an ideal location with easy walks into town and to the beach. The hotel itself is lovely. The rooms are spotless, bright, spacious and beautiful. The front desk service was courteous and welcoming. A light but tasty breakfast is brought to your door at the time you request and coffee and cookies are available...

Decent rate for a last minute booking. Rooms are fine. Checked in late and got a courtesy call saying they'd leave the key for us! Parking convenient. Location awesome. Too many good eateries in town to waste calories on the average continental breakfast. Great weekend. I love Carmel.

We have stayed at Lobos Lodge during our last three visits to Carmel. It is always comfortable and the beds are great. We appreciate the privacy and quiet of the layout and being able to park on site. It could not be in a better location for visiting the shops, galleries and the beach. A bonus is the morning continental...

This is a pleasant lodge, if you are around fora few days its a good base. The down side is service, it is not really on the friendly side, they are not interested in helping you. no laundry facilities, no take out laundry no restaurant basically anything that is not in front of you now is not going to happen....

Had a great time in Carmel. This hotel was very convenient, clean, plenty of space. Very friendly staff. Enjoyed the breakfast delivered each morning. We had a ground floor room and it was very quiet. Would recommend!

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip in early January for a job interview in the surrounding area. I loved this hotel! It had a homie feel, was very quiet and I could see the ocean from my room! I was also able to walk from the hotel to dinner in the area which was super convenient. I...

We keep going back. Can't beat the charm and the location. The rooms are very large with a fireplace. Each morning, a deluxe continental breakfast is delivered to your door. Fresh cookies and coffee or tea are available all day long into the evening in the lobby. The front desk staff are very helpful with area and dining recommendations.

Having had two terrible hotels which we had booked on the internet whilst travelling we decided to walk around Carmel and look at the Hotels that were available. We found the Lobos Lodge right on the main street just up from the ocean and what a find! Beth the lady who welcomed us could not have been better, a lovely...

Have stayed here several times, and have always found the rooms to be clean, and comfortable. it isn't plush, but very comfortable. It is well located off Ocean Ave. and has free parking. I've toured several of the hotels in the few blocks around Carmel by the sea and find this to be one of the best values. A light...
