lodginglodging reservations in Carmel

The beaches are clean & have an aqua colored ocean shore. Plus the surrounding neighborhoods are just as nice as the village shops. So many small inns to choose from here. There is no shortage with lodging options, but on busy summer or holiday weekends, you best make a reservation . The streets are charming & adorable with tons of character. This place is not a typical beach town at all.
