We stayed here for three nights midweek in October as part of a California road trip. We found the hotel easily and pleased to see the large car park with spaces in it but I understand spaces may be short at weekends.

Centrally located enabling you to walk everywhere in beautiful Carmel! Old motels can be run down and unattractive but this property, with its tudor exterior, cobblestone drive and flowers blooming everywhere was inviting at first glance.

Great property.A very large room, with a very nice fireplace. Two overstuffed chairs in the living area. The bed was very comfortable. We did not use the Jacuzzi tube, it is available. Located in Central Carmel.

There's the Great Location, and then little else to recommend this place. Sure, the staff is friendly enough, and the room with a King Bed and a gas log fireplace was large enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coachman's Inn has 30 spacious, comfortable rooms, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, and thoughtful amenities. Guests appreciate all these attributes, but perhaps most attractive of all is the location. Step out the front door and the charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea is in every direction. The white sand beach? A five-minute stroll. The Sunset Center, Monterey's premier arts venue? One block away. Boutiques, restaurants, galleries and wine tasting rooms? You're surrounded! One of the newest locations to be added to the Four Sisters Inn Collection, the Coachman's Inn resembles more of a small hotel than a bed-and-breakfast inn. Guests enjoy a complimentary signature breakfast buffet each morning, as well as afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres, in our beautiful Coach room. Romantic escape or girlfriends' getaway, the Coachman's Inn has a guestroom that is just right. Each of our newly updated rooms features a private bath, and king or queen bed with luxurious linens. Some rooms offer two queen beds, or inner doors connecting two rooms - perfect for families or friends traveling together. Some rooms have cozy fireplaces or jetted spa tubs. Our innkeeper will help you select the guestroom that best suits your needs. Rates include: -A complimentary breakfast buffet for two each morning in the Coach Room -Complimentary afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres in the Coach room -Large, flat-panel television and DirecTV service -Wireless Internet service -In-room Keurig coffee maker, mini-fridge and microwave -Two plush, cozy bathrobes and signature amenities -Freshly baked cookies each afternoon -Use of hot tub and dry sauna -Onsite or convenient street parking. ... more   less
