Hotel Carmel, Santa Monica
Amazing Location and Service!!!!!
I was a bit worried after reading some reviews, but what pulled me in was the location to the beach. That could not be beat. Once in there, yes, it is an older hotel, made me feel like I was at my grandma's house even smelled like it. But other than that it was clean, had hot water, the beds were comfy and great working AC. Don't let the age of the hotel stop you, the location and the amazing service from Valet and the Front Desk can't be beat!!!!! There was always a smile and a good morning or evening. I would definitely stay there again.

Average venue. Superior location.
An older property that is well appointed. Its location is its biggest asset - proximity to beach/coast. Hence the rooms are priced higher than if somewhere else. Any other city this is an average hotel. But its clean and safe. Walkable to Expo line terminus. Small bathroom but clean. Small elevator. 4 floors so easily walkable in lieu of the lift. Would stay again.

Ambiance, comfort and excellent breakfast included
Driving up and down the PCH from Novato to Santa Monica the motels we stayed were diabolical and should be closed down. We stayed in a fairly comfortable hotel in Santa Monica but it was noisy and we were hoping to find some tranquility on our road trip and then we checked in to the Pine Inn Hotel for 2 nights and immediately found the place welcoming and comfortable and quiet! First good nights sleep we had since the road trip started 5 days ago. My wife says she wish we had skipped all the driving and come to the Pine Inn for the whole week and so we plan to come back next trip.

Family Vaca in Santa Monica
We liked that the Hotel was reasonably priced and close to Santa Monica Pier, ocean and local shopping store. For it being a older Hotel, we were comfortable, but traffic and late night crowd was very loud.
