TravelPod Member ReviewsPine Inn Carmel
Other than a few quirks with the ceiling fan, lack of airconditioning, and parking it was a pleasant stay. This hotel was recommended to us by a seasoned traveler and we would definitely recommend to others who are planning a stay in Carmel. Parking is a bit difficult and frustrating unless you can get a space in the hotel's guest lot. The hotel lot does not accomodate many cars and parking on the streets can be a bit tricky b/c the parking spaces are metered throughout the day, until the evening. You just have to make sure you feed the meter until the evening hours, then again in the morning when metered times pick back up. But the hotel is in the heart of Carmel, convenient to everything. Friendly staff and charming rooms.

... further on. Yes, it did say NO PARKING, but we weren't really parking, just loitering while we took a couple of pictures, which doesn't count, officer. There was a sort of faint sea mist over the coast, which stretched the whole way, but the views of the coastline and the white seaspray over the huge breaking waves was great. Santa Cruz seemed to be a good place to stop. There was a bakery and coffee stop where we had the most delicious coffee and baguette. ...

For our last evening in Carmel we walk to the main street and look at the local art, sculpture & glass exhibition. It is very interesting and many of the locals were out to support the event. Later on we went to "Basils" and had another lovely dinner. For a fairly small town, they have over 100 restaurants. We were surprised how busy everywhere was, given that our visit was during the week. We have loved Carmel, loved our ...
... Anyway, the lunch was delicious! Arlene and I had Grilled Eggplant Napoleon which was grilled eggplant, mozzarella cheese, roasted red pepper, caramelized onions on a brioche and drizzled with a balsamic sauce. It was so good!!!!! Dick had a grilled chicken organic red leaf salad. He loved it! Wayne had a pork tenderloin sandwich that he really enjoyed, too! We loved it so much that we went back for dinner last night! And, we forgot to take ...
... looks like Battlestar Galactic and charges a whopping $40 per tasting! Plus they only make one wine, so that's for one glass. No surprise that we all went "thanks, but no thanks" to that tempting proposition.
Decided to visit the less spaceship / more Tuscany looking winery Peju just a bit further up the road. These guys mainly made red wine so I bailed on the tasting and bought something from the gift shop instead. Julia did the tasting and had fun ...
... a lovely day out with I, M and A who took us to the Carmel Valley for lunch, then a wine tasting. The day just flew and we went back to I&Ms for a drink. Then we headed back toJeff 's who had organised a dinner party - can that man cook! A special cut of beef plus wild salmon, with vegetarian options like green salad and a bean salad plus 3 sauce options - and home made garlic bread. We met Rob, 'little' Jeff and Judith. Loverly food, great conversation -a good ...
