Verified Reviews of Carmel River Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Value"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
As far as small motels go, this is top quality. Extremely good service, clean, stylish rooms with a great view of the river/ forest. Excellent location, just a few minutes drive from Carmel Beach. You can also walk through the neighborhood to get to the beach, about a 40 minute walk, or 15 minute jog. Highly recommend, especially for the price in this very expensive area.
