Hotels in Carmel, CA – Hofsas House Hotel

I recently had the chance to visit Carmel, California and while there, I was fortunate to experience the European influenced inn called Hofsas House Hotel. Located just four blocks from most of the wineries and eateries in town, the Hofsas House Hotel it is in an excellent location for experiencing this beautiful city.

Hofsas House Hotel has been a family-owned inn since 1957 when it was opened by Donna Hofsas and her husband, Fred. Since 2000, it’s been owned and operated by Donna’s granddaughter, Carrie Theis. Theis is a wealth of information about the history of Carmel, as well as a fabulous guide to the activities available to guests in and around Carmel.

The Hofsas House Hotel is a boutique inn and each room is uniquely decorated. This isn’t a chain hotel where every room is identical.  They aim to make you comfortable by providing free wireless Internet, designated dog-friendly rooms, pool, dry sauna, and view deck.

We were lodged in room 45 and were lucky enough to have an ocean view from the patio. Once inside we were greeted by wine and cheese and a warm, plush interior. Our king size bed was made with high-count linens and countless pillows – we definitely got a good night’s sleep here.

Next to the bed was a working wood-burning fireplace, which is very rare these days, and a great addition to some of the rooms at Hofsas House. What a romantic addition to a cold winter’s night.

The bathroom is large and has a heated floor for your comfort because really, who likes cold toes after a hot shower! There are plenty of  big fluffy towels plus quality shampoo, lotion, and conditioner which made for a luxurious atmosphere.

From our door we had a peek-a-boo view of the ocean and of the Inn’s pool which is kept heated to comfortable 80 degrees. The Inn’s continental breakfast is sourced from local bakeries and provided in the lobby (which also has a working fireplace). Feeling romantic?  The Hofsas House allows you to take a tray back to your room for breakfast in bed if you like.

The Hofsas House Hotel is a wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Carmel. I will certainly stay here again. The charm is unbeatable.
