NORMANDY INN HISTORIC CHARM
 

Normandy Inn has been welcoming guests to Carmel-by-the-Sea for over 90 years. The centrally located hotel offers enchanting charm & comfort. French Country-style accommodations with cozy fireplaces, add an extra touch of whimsy and romance. Normandy Inn is one of our choice hotels in Carmel with its unique and pretty cozy grounds and true to history character. The hotel has kept the touches of old world French charm.

 

Where they can improve is their service. They are just…blah. Some front desk staff is wonderful and others should smile and truly welcome you to this charming seaside village when you step into the small lobby. Their housekeeping is professional and during COVID may not be offering daily housekeeping during your stay.

 

Guests should note this hotel has stairs, throughout the property, even small stairs leading to the cottages. Keep in mind, this an actual historic hotel, so it is truly historic. They have done a wonderful job updating it in certain rooms, particularly the modern spacious bathrooms in the Cottages. The other guest rooms have small showers that could be renovated, but it wasn't even noticeable for us since the charm is so great. We love the cottages and historic rooms equipped with vanities and fireplaces. Overall Normandy Inn is a beautiful and enchanting hotel perfectly suits this fairytale coastal town.
