    Early March one night stay
    Overall, this was a very relaxing, peaceful stay. Lucked out by getting a riverfront view! Highly recommend a riverfront view because you have a somewhat private patio with 2 lawn chairs and a side table, which is perfect for watching the current and critters that pass by. There is a trail that runs along the river, and connects with the pool area and cottages...a nice little excursion but not too adventurous. Greeted by a cute tortie-dil female cat resting on the couch, which was my highlight! I grew up with cats and they have been absent from my life for a good 5 or so years now. It is an older inn, and with that comes a timeless theme to the room. Only complaint was the state of the carpet and flooring in the bathroom. Beyond that, the bed was very comfortable complete with your choice of pillows: down or standard (always happy with a firm standard pillow!!). Temperature was easy to set and maintain throughout the night; looked fairly new and user friendly. I would love to stay again, and possibly try a cottage next time!

    Cute cabin
    Cute little cabin. It was simple but had everything we needed. Bed was comfortable. It had a fridge, microwave, hot plate, settings for 2 including wine glasses. Quiet and yet close to everything. What more could you want?

    Great Stay
    Our stay at Carmel River Inn was great. The people who worked there were helpful and friendly. They even recommended some delicious eating places. The room was clean and quiet. I would stay there again.

    Great stay!
    We enjoyed sitting outside, our room. Our room was so quaint and spacious at the same time. The front desk is so friendly! We so enjoyed our stay and will be back again!
