Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Carmel By The Sea Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Carmel By The Sea, CA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Carmel By The Sea hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Since it wasn't founded until 1902 or incorporated until 1916, you might assume Carmel-by-the-Sea has a relatively short history. However, it has a much richer heritage than those dates suggest. Academics believe Esselen-speaking Native Americans were Carmel's first inhabitants. They traveled south when the Ohlone people unseated them around the 6th century.

Spanish explorers passed by without ever setting foot ashore in 1542. Around 60 years later, Spanish explorer SebastiƔn Vizcaƭno and a Carmelite friar arrived in the Carmel Valley. They named it in tribute to the patron saint, Our Lady of Mount Carmel. However, the Spanish didn't colonize the area until 1770, when it became a mission site.

While several small developments were launched throughout Carmel-by-the-Sea's history, the city didn't really grow until James Frank Devendorf and Frank Powers filed a subdivision map in 1902. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, many of the city's visual artists and writers relocated to Carmel-by-the-Sea. They were joined by several scientists, who moved to Carmel when the Carnegie Institution established its Coastal Laboratory in 1910.

Today Carmel-by-the-Sea is home to more than 3,700 people. It's especially attractive to dog owners, who can frequent the city's many dog-friendly stores and restaurants. Carmel-by-the-Sea also has many dog-friendly hotels, so it's the perfect place for a getaway with your four-legged friend. If you don't have a pooch, don't worry. There's still plenty to see and do in this vibrant Californian city on the coast.

When are the best times to visit Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA?

Carmel-by-the-Sea's cool Mediterranean clime is best experienced during the Indian Summer, which runs from September to October. Average highs in the low 70s are perfect for swimming and sightseeing.

A summer getaway might sound appealing, but this peak tourist season is in the middle of Carmel-by-the-Sea's wet season. Summer days are often gray and gloomy, with marine-layer clouds blocking the sun. Persistent drizzle can really put a dampener on your vacation plans.

Winter weather is milder than in many parts of the country, with average highs around 60. However, this season is plagued by storms. While the rain isn't as relentless as it is during the wet season, the heavy showers mean the winter months have Carmel-by-the-Sea's greatest rainfall.
