    A real treat!

    We loved the Candle Light Inn. After staying at a number of Carmel hotels over the years, we finally tried the Candle Light Inn and we are so sorry we waited so long. It was one of our best experiences. The room was comfortable, spacious by Carmel standards, the bed was cozy and the wi-fi very good. Staff was excellent and friendly. If you're a late sleeper, I'd suggest a top floor because the guest above us was rather noisy and an early riser. OItherwise this was a perfect location and place to explore from. An excellent dollar value as well.

    This place was fantastic! The customer service was A1 and everyone on staff was super friendly and very welcoming. The room itself was beautiful. The bed was huge and comfortable, electrical fireplace, flatscreen tv, a huge tub w/ jets and a separate shower. This will be on my place to stay every time I’m in town!

    Candle light Inn was a great choice!

    The candle light in was great! Very friendly staff and the inn is walking distance from almost anything you need. Loved the jacuzzi tub we upgraded to! Super clean and couldn’t really ask for anything better.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel looks just like most other hotels in the area. Nothing too special. Kind of plain. The bathroom is way to small. Walls are pretty thin. It is within walking distance of shops and the beach.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The rooms are extremely small with very limited amenities for the room price. There is an additional fee of $60/room for??? Staff is very young and don’t know/explain much. Supposed to get $60 refunded but will take several days based on what? No idea. Claimed to email portfolio/bill and received email with nothing attached, as indicated. Wouldn’t recommend this hotel. Looks nothing like online photos.
