If you want to get...
Liked: Very quiet - which is what we wanted. Beautiful setting - clean fresh air. Loved the fireplace and the little patio. Very accommodating staff. We had an issue with the bathroom and it was taken care of while we were out!
Disliked: Breakfast was not what was expected. According to reviews the breakfast was exceptional. Maybe it was the time of year - New Years. Ran out of some stuff if we did not go early.

Liked: I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT CARMEL VALLEY INN!!! I BOOKED A ROOM FOR MYSELF TO SPEND NEW YEAR'S EVE AND RECEIVE THE NEW DECADE AWAY FROM THE CITY AND SURROUNDED BY NATURE AND IT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST NEW YEAR'S OF MY WHOLE LIFE! THE FIRST DAY OF THE YEAR, I TOOK THE PCH AND DROVE HALF WAY DOWN BIG SUR, MAKING STOPS EVERY SO OFTEN TO JUST SIT BY THE REDWOODS AND RELAX THERE FOR A FEW MINUTES. CARMEL VALLEY INN IS LOCATED NORTH OF BIG SUR, JUST A BIT OVER 2 HOURS DRIVE SOUTH FROM SAN FRANCISCO (THAT'S HOME FOR ME), THE ROOM WAS SUPER BIG, AS WELL AS THE BATHROOM AND EVEN HAD A BALCONY, AND PF COURSE, SPOTLESS-CLEAN. THE BREAKFAST WAS GOOD AND HEALTHY AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF IT ALL, THE STAFF WAS AMAZING TO ME!!! IT WAS MY FIRST TIME THERE AND I'M ALREADY MAKING PLANS TO GO BACK THIS SUMMER, I'M INVITED THE TWO VOLUNTEERS AT MY JOB, THEY'VE NEVER BEEN TO CARMEL NOR BIG SUR AND I'M PRETTY EXCITED I'LL BE BACK SO SOON, BECAUSE "HAPPINESS IS ONLY REAL WHEN IT'S SHARED." IT'S BEEN QUITE A LONG REVIEW NOW, JUST WANT TO FINISH SAYING, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES I HAVE STAYED IN HERE IN CALIFORNIA. THANK YOU!

Upgrades needed and in the...
Liked: The location is beautiful.
Bathroom was plenty roomy and nice shower stall. Room of sufficient size.
Disliked: Room did not have fridge nor a microwave. Only a coffee maker. Our unit not yet renovated, but other units appeared to be nicer. Maybe we didn?t pay for the nicer units. Also, breakfast was included but not of the standard expected for a quaint hotel in Carmel Valley. More like a continental breakfast in a low cost chain hotel. Not sufficient dishes or coffee cups. Hard boiled eggs down to the last one for our group of four and we arrived 45 minutes before end of breakfast time slot. Appeared to be short on staff as front desk staff was also tending the kitchen, washing dishes, answering calls.

Liked: Amazing scenery and nice clean interiors. We stopped for 1 night on a longer tour but we were pleased with the choice, the breakfast was served in a very nice room with a big Christmas tree and a fireplace: perfect.
Disliked: Some elements of the furniture need renovation, also the bathroom. The breakfast is quite basic but all in all that?s a bed & breakfast, not a 5* hotel.
