    Wooden handrails are I terrible condition. I have splinters to prove the need for more maintenance or replacement. Our room keys were deactivated while at breakfast. We were told their system does that. The general impression is that maintenance is being starved.

    I loved the location and the property was charming. You are literally blocks from the beach and all the restaurants and shops, but traffic is t so bad where the inn is located. We walked everywhere, which was convenient and nice. The hotel was very quaintly decorated as far as the breakfast area, lobby, sitting areas and so forth. The staff were very friendly. Plus they have an adorable resident cat who is very vocal and likes say “hi”.

    The rooms are very outdated and the furniture and fixtures are very run down and have been used extensively. The walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors. I heard my next door neighbor snore through the walls. The bathroom counters are very short, and this is coming from as a short person.

    It was beautiful and cozy at a great location in the heart of the town

    Beds weren’t super comfy, no fridge in the room, breakfast wasn’t great, but coffee they offered was good

About

Overview

The Normandy Inn is a historic and romantic property packed with country furnishings, flowers, and Old World charm. The hotel presents an overall feeling that makes guests feel like they’re walking through the pages of a storybook. Quaint and romantic, this hotel is ideal for couples.

The surrounding area is quiet, composed mainly of other historic inns and luxury vacation homes. Although not directly facing the ocean, Carmel Beach is just a short, 13-minute walk away, while restaurants and shops at Ocean Avenue is just a six-minute walk. A scenic drive through Pebble Beach is five minutes away, and it’s less than 20 minutes to Point Lobos, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Garrapata State Park.

As a boutique hotel, the amenities are limited, but there are freebies such as free breakfast, parking, WiFi, and an inviting outdoor pool. The free breakfast buffet includes a selection of breads, fresh fruit and muffins, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, and cereal. There are also free sherry and shortbread cookies in the lobby every afternoon. Hot drinks such as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the lobby are available most of the day.

The 48 rooms are well-maintained and old-fashioned without being too dated. Accommodations come in a variety of sizes with double twin beds and comfortable king and queen beds. Cottages and suites are larger, with more space and separate kitchens. The decor in rooms and cottages keep with the historic style and is on the old-fashioned side, featuring classic wooden furniture along with floral bedspreads. Some rooms offer fireplaces and partial ocean views.

With an aesthetic reminiscent of a European country home and a quaint setting among other historic inns, the boutique Normandy Inn is charming all around.
