Families looking to soak up some natural beauty while staying in a comfortable and spacious hotel should consider the Carmel River Inn. This inn is located at the entrance of Big Sur coast and surrounded by gorgeous river views. The beauty of the Monterey Peninsula is something everyone should see. Camping, kayaking, hiking and many other outdoor activities are located right nearby. Choose between inn rooms or a cozy cottage, big enough for the whole family to stay together. In your room, you’ll find a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker to make you feel right at home. This is a pet-friendly hotel, so all your furriest family members are welcome; plus, there are no leash laws. Free Wi-Fi will keep you connected while you’re away, and free parking is available to keep your costs down.

This property is older and I was actually worried when we got there, but the room was extremely clean and had a beautiful view of the river below. The staff was very nice and helpful. The negatives were... the shower/toilet area was extremely small and cramped and our shower door didn't stay closed. You could also hear every footstep from the 2nd floor.
Unfortunately it was only a passing stay at the Carmel River Inn but we couldn’t of asked for more.. The rooms were immaculate & we had a balcony with a lovely view of the river. You definitely forget how close you are to the main road! The staff couldn’t of been more friendly either & the resident cat was gorgeous!
Thank you so much for a great stay.
