What a find! My husband discovered this on the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend and snapped up probably the last room for Friday night (room 1). Incredibly reasonable rate for a holiday weekend in Carmel, no 2 night minimum like most of the other B&B's, great breakfast & comfy bed. The gentleman at the front desk when we first arrived...

Stayed with friends for 2 nights in the rooms across the courtyard at the back of the property. Pleasantly furnished room with a skylight over the bed without a blind. We rather liked being woken by the dawn light and being able to see the weather before getting out of bed ! Quiche, among other goodies, was a pleasant change... More

No glitz, no glamor, the Sandpiper is a Carmel fixture. We had a very comfortable stay with our adult children. Great views from our rooms (7 and 11). It's a very short walk to the southern end of the Carmel main beach. Great value. Service can be a little lackadaisical but staff is friendly. Three generations of our family have... More

Been coming to this wonderful B&B for 14 years and never had a bad experience. It is quiet, no TV, great breakfast and 2 blocks from the ocean and walks on the beach. Maria the Inn keeper is very attentive but not too chatty - my husband and I like our private time when we go away but appreciate some... More

Accepted a booking with a 4 year old child. When arriving didn't allowed to stay and refused to return the $160. We were forced to leave with a 4 year old child by night, and forced to find another available hotel and without $160. Easy money. People like these must not have places to stay. Also the concierge was the... More

You can grab a cup of coffee and stroll down to the beach after having a delicious breakfast of quiche or croissant, fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea. We've stayed there several times and the staff is very accommodating and friendly, always happy to see us. The sitting room and library are very cozy and peaceful places to rest after... More

Breakfast quiche delicious - fresh fruit, coffee, juice - stayed there due to close proximity to beach and good reviews. Will stay again next year. Staff very friendly. Library and sitting room with fireplace very cozy.

My husband and I stayed at the Sandpiper Inn last Saturday night. We stayed in room #11 and our room had a nice little view of the Bay. We would stay there again. The Inn staff were helpful in providing suggestions for dinner in a local Italian restaurant. We enjoyed meeting the other guests during breakfast and the afternoon dessert... More

We basically stumbled upon this place while driving down the Pacific coast with no definite plans to stay in Carmel. We found this inn, which was the closest to the beach. The rooms were small, but nice - you can see (and hear) the ocean from the second floor. There was no A/C, but it was not needed because Carmel... More

First of all, make sure you have a gps(waze) or get here before dark. There are no street lights in Carmel and its really dark driving at night. But once you do get here , wow! The whole place is very nicely decorated. We got room 16, a nice corner room for 3 person with its own entrance and has... More
