Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of the most beautiful places in the world. As well one of the best pet-friendly towns in the country. It’s a place where your dog can run free on beautiful Carmel Beach. I’m going to list some of my favorite Hotels in Carmel.

Cypress Inn an elegant pet-friendly boutique inn located in the heart of Carmel, is a wonderful place to stay when you travel with your pet. Co-owned by legendary singer, actress and animal activist Doris Day and Dennis LeVett for more than 20 years, Cypress Inn masterfully blends Old World hospitality and service with modern comforts and amenities. Cypress Inn has been Carmel’s most beloved boutique hotels since it opened in 1929. By combining Mediterranean grace and charm with warm hospitality and exemplary service, Cypress Inn has drawn everyone from kings, queens and Hollywood royalty to the everyday traveler, and especially all those who like to travel with their pets.


Cypress Inn also features a “Yappy Hour” in their restaurant “Terry’s Lounge” section. It has a large following of locals and guest. My husband and I love going with our dog to meet people from all over the world, great conversations are started over cocktails and dogs.
