Enjoyed Carmel River Inn! The cottages are fun & private for dog lovers. Perfect location for Poodle day 2017! The front desk staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The cleaning staff are also friendly and fast. Definitely will stay again!
Stayed in cottage 17 is a tight squeeze. It's not quite updated like some of the other cottages reviewed. Cottage 17 needs some work. It gets super hot from the sun, so a blackout shade & A/C or fan on site is mandatory. (A fan is available upon request). Carpet is torn and old and needs replacing and the shower is very tight like a phone booth.
Great location, cute B&B-like quality
NO AC!! On a 100 degree weather, but no notice at all to guests beforehand OR at check in!! Smells like dog (it's dog friendly, another surprise!) I love dogs, but like, that needs to be stated upfront - and the rooms better never smell like other guests pets. Also, the guest next door left their poor pup alone in the room and the dog would not stop hauling (at 7:30am! On a Saturday) - I know that's not really on the hotel, but maybe tell guests to not leave dogs unattended in their room? Oh and again, also be VERY upfront about how pet friendly you're hotel is so that all guests are aware before booking.
Location. Friendly staff.
Facility was old. Not very private. Stayed in main hotel,not the cottages.
