I wish I knew what happened to this place?
We will no longer stay at Carmel River Inn in Carmel California. As they no longer will allow us to stay in any of the NEW Renovated cottages with our clean well behaved beloved pet. It's obvious to me they are slowly ending dogs allowed after they're done renovating the rest of the cottages on the property. For those that don't realize this, Carmel is rated one of the BEST dog friendly cities in the country. Even Doris Day lives near by and has her own dog hotel. So to find this happening is frankly shocking to say the least.
However, it's not just about dogs especially to those that are happy they won't be allowing dogs in the future. Please Beware. Not only has the communication and friendly service gone down, and that's bad enough, the noise is still there.
They are Renovating All Cottages and other areas and will be for Years! It seems every time we went it was Noisy from the workers renovation work. We ignored this because we could stay in such a beautiful setting and wonderful renovated cottage. But now they no longer allow dogs in the nice cottages only the very dumpy ones that are still waiting for renovation so we are no longer going. Again Beware. They will be renovating for Years. Not just the cottages. We understand they are also going to build a large conference center on the property and I assume this work will still happen, don't know. And completely renovating or tearing down and starting over the main building. When we stayed their last it was very noisy. So some tips if you do decide to go. Don't expect friendly service next time you go, it's gone. And your best bet is to only stay on weekends and then maybe and only maybe you'll be safe from noise. If you do end up with noise ask for a discount. Ask about the noise before before making a reservation there. And hopefully they'll be honest with you. Good luck... So sad. Good Bye Carmel River Inn.
