    The room and property were loverly; remodeled bathroom, clean, cozy, and right in the middle of town. No need to pull car out. The staff were all very, very nice and so very helpful. We were especially impressed with the gentleman at the front desk who works the night/early morning shift. His professional yet kind demeanor meant a lot.

    Parking in the lot is an issue. It's too small. There aren't enough spaces to accommodate all those staying in the property. Thankfully we were able to find a parking spot on the side street.

    The Hotel is lovely in an excellent position, great breakfast and tea and coffee all day in reception with Sherry and biscuits late afternoon.

    The noise coming through the walls from other guests was far too loud, we stayed for 3 nights and found the noise disturbed our sleep every night, better insulation would help

    Parking is a problem. Loading zone had cars parked in it. Changed our room from queen to two twins at last minute. Two many stairs with no elevator. No bellman to help with luggage

    Hard to check in and get bags to the room

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.
