We spend two nights at this lovely B&B. It is only about a 5 minute walk to Carmel beach where you can walk along the scenic pathway along the ocean. We stayed in Room 15 which is more of a cottage style cabin with a skylight. The room was large enough, clean and felt like we were in our own... More

This is an attractive inn about a block from the ocean. We had a small room the first night because of limited availability, and a lovely room with 2 comfortable armchairs and an ocean view (rm 11) the second night. "Ocean view" is limited ... intervening houses and trees. My only criticism of the rooms was the lack of AC.... More

A homely traditional B&B which was welcoming and comfortable. Our room (#5) had a nice view of the ocean and the lounge area downstairs had a TV, which the room did not. This is by design and is a nice touch. The breakfast is home made and very tasty. (Croissant, quiche, fruit, cereal etc). All in all a lovely place... More

We spent two nights at the Inn. It is a quaint place far enough away from downtown that we were not bothered by noise. Great B&B with friendly, competent staff. The breakfast quiche was one of the best I have had in some time. Location makes for parking. Heartily recommend the Sandpiper Inn for those visiting Carmel.

Small little bEf and breakfast but for what I needed it was great. Breakfast could have been a bit more in terms of choice but a small issue for a nice place in a lovely town. Plenty of parking for all guests.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Sandpiper Inn during our stay in Carmel. In general I was very happy with what we got for our money given that some of the reviews I read beforehand were rather modest. We had room number 15 which is in the back of the Inn in a separate building. The room was small... More

Our room at the Sandpiper overlooked the sea and was beautifully and thoughtfully turned out. It is off the main streets of Carmel and so the only thing you will hear at night is the crashing of the waves at sea - nothing else. Breakfast was great and it is very reasonably priced. It is a short walk into Carmel... More

After 6 days we did not want to leave. Maria is so attentive to detail as if it is second nature. I am still missing the morning breakfast quiche and croissants, the afternoon tea with shortbread and macaroons. It has one of the only beaches I have visited that allows bonfires right on the beach to watch the glorious sunsets.... More

We stayed for a couple of nights on 13/9 and 14/9 and wished that we could have stayed longer. The rooms that we had were in a small annexe at the back of the main property and although they were small they were very clean and well furnished. The breakfast were terrific with beautiful food and lashings of tea and... More

Travelled from San Francisco to L.A. and this was by far the best accommodations we had during our vacation. It was a beautiful location - close to the beach and in a neighborhood like setting. The service was so great. I am gluten free and they were completely prepared to accommodate me for breakfast. The wifi worked. The staff was... More
