Pet Friendly Policy

Carmel-by-the-Sea was named #2 in Techobark's Top 20 North American Cities for Dog Owners in 2019—and Carmel Lodge is happy to be your dog-friendly lodging option in our little town!

To accommodate our guests that have allergies, not all of our rooms are pet friendly (please note that the Queen/Queen room does not allow pets). When making a reservation online, leave a note about your pet in the Booking Notes section during the check-out process, or call (831) 624-1255 to make your reservation so we can reserve the perfect, pet-friendly room for your visit. We charge a nightly fee of $35 for one pet and an additional $15 for a second pet with a 2-dog maximum per room.  We welcome service animals in compliance with federal and state laws.
