Where to stay in Carmel

Most accommodations in Carmel sit inland, around the historical center. Most of these line the town's two major streets--Ocean Avenue and San Carlos Street--where you can choose from a range of independent inns, whose decor and ambiance captures the artistic reputation that has long been associated with Carmel. You can expect complimentary breakfast at most options in this area, from which you can reach the town's iconic beach on foot.
