Came here with my kids to relax. We stayed in one of the Ocean View Lodge room because we had our 2 dogs. I was very impressed on how clean & roomy it was. Very nice & cozy with a complete kitchen & wood-burning fireplace. The king bed was very comfortable & soft (just the way I like it). Extremely...

Thank you for your recent review. Every year we slate a list of improvement projects for the year. This year we introduced brand new sofa sleepers for every living room at the Lodge as well as replacing the carpet in the remaining 3 cottages. This January we will be installing brand new 40" flat screen TV's into every living room...

Stayed here for three nights in September with a friend and had an amazing time. Continental breakfasts were great, left in a picnic style hamper outside of your room each morning. Incredibly comfortable bed, the only slight downside was a lack of air conditioning but it was cool of an evening in Carmel. All the staff were incredibly helpful.. All...

The experience actually began before our stay. It seemed like all the rooms with view were going to be taken but I tried asking them via email. They responded almost immediately, they had a room that was perfect for us. With fireplace, ocean view, balcony, etc. The room was exactly as the photos in the website. The view was amazing,...

I had a good first impression of this inn when I called to make a reservation. Their on-line calendar showed they (as everywhere else in Carmel) were almost completely booked the weekend we wanted to visit and I couldn’t find three consecutive nights in the same room. The woman on the phone was extremely pleasant and helpful, and managed to...

I'm staying here with another couple (family) and we really like it. We searched all over carmel for a hotel that is close to shops, close to beach, has a jaccuzzi and parking and this is the only place. The price is good for what you get. The breakfast basket dropped to your door so you don't have to rush...

One night stop. It was very clean and comfortable. Cleaner and more well maintained than any other inn we stayed at. Breakfast was a pastry, boiled egg, juice and a muffin. If the price is right and in your budget then you won’t be disappointed with the room. We had a partial ocean view. It looks exactly as posted in...

A recent stay at Horizon Inn was a one-night, "passing through" visit. But the hotel turned out to be a pleasant surprise. A friendly & helpful staff, a short walk to town and reasonable rates (at least for this town) all made it a worthwhile stay. If luxury is your objective, look elsewhere. But if function and convenience at a...

We enjoyed our king ocean view room. It was very clean, well equipped and had a very comfortable bed & bedding -- great sleeping with heavy curtains that keep the room dark and away from busier streets so quiet. Easy walking distance to Ocean Ave. A little farther to beach, but still doable. The picnic basket breakfast is a nice...

Last Christmas our children gave us a gift certificate to the Horizon Inn & Ocean View Lodge in Carmel. We decided to take advantage of it as a belated birthday trip since my birthday was the end of August. It has been a very busy summer with back to back visitors and now with our grape harvest and wine making....
