Carmel is a quaint, charming area and The Candle Light Inn suited our needs perfectly. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the room was spacious and very clean. We loved having our breakfast waiting for us in a cooler outside our door in the morning, which allowed us to enjoy it together when we were ready. The location...

We stopped off in Carmel for one night, and this was a great find. It wasn't too dear, the room and bed was fantastic, and a lovely surprise breakfast in the morning. Also got a great tip for a place to eat across the road from one of the staff. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to...

We stayed for one night in a Deluxe Guest room which was ideal for a family of four. Very friendly check-in and a great location, on site parking was nice and easy. The outdoor fire place was perfect for a nightcap (or two!) & the continental breakfast delivered to the door was a nice touch.

This is a lovely little place, perfect for a few nights in Carmel recently. Very close to the main town so ideal for us strolling home after dinner and drinks out.

Very comfortable and large rooms. Perfect location - only two blocks from the main business area of Carmel By The Sea. Walking distance to all shops and the beach. The room, while dated, was more than comfortable and very large and included a kitchenette. Fabulous restaurants and shops all extremely close by. An excellent choice.
