We wish we had time to spend more than just one night here, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It is a fantastic location, just a block from the beach, and some rooms offer a great view of the beach. The bedroom was comfortable and the living room, dining room and outdoor seating areas offer many places to relax. The... More

We knew it was near the ocean, but we did not expect a full, delicious, homemade breakfast! Now we know why several of our trusted friends always choose to stay at a bed and breakfast, rather than at a hotel!

This B&B is very charming and located just a block away from the ocean. The rooms are very nice; no TV. Breakfast was OK - quiche, pastries, coffee, orange juice. The main problem I had with the Inn is that the host was very curt and I didn't feel all that welcomed. He made sure we had a map of... More

The location was great so close to the beach about a half hour or less walking distance to the downtown area which we didn't mind because we loved looking at the beautiful homes. Inn was very clean, beautiful, warm, great amenities. One of the best we have stayed at. Breakfast was a very delicious quiche and some other things. The... More

We enjoyed staying at this place. It was very clean, staff were courteous but not intruding. The room was a bit small but the main sitting area was tastefully decorated and very fitting to the Carmel atmosphere as a "Normandy style" village. Cozy fireplace, nice and relaxing music, good breakfast...Being close to the beach was great! It was a bit... More

We stayed 1 night in Carmel on our way from SFO to LA. The staff were friendly and helpful. Afternoon tea and cakes greeted our arrival which was a very welcome sight after a long drive. The room was small but clean. The storing of the hairdryers in a hall cupboard seemed a bit quirky and unnecessary. The continental breakfast... More

I had a great stay here last week. The service was very good and the room was quite comfortable. Breakfast included quiches, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and croissants and was very tasty! The Sandpiper Inn is located just under a mile from downtown Carmel, but it is a beautiful walk along the beach, so I didn't mind the distance at... More

Perhaps it's not fair that we had just stayed at the Sofitel in Beverly Hills for 4 days. We were spoiled by INCREDIBLE customer service. Upon arriving in Carmel @ 1:30 pm, we knew we were early to check in, but wanted to park, get lunch recommendations,etc. Upon walking into the inn, we were greeted with "You are 1 1/2... More

We spent two nights at the Sandpiper Inn. Lovely clean inn. Owner gracious. The breakfast is very good. Fresh fruit, juice, cereal, good coffee, quiche or croissant. The kitchen is available to guests. If you are tired at the end of a day exploring you can get supplies locally and make your own snack. The young lady who works in... More

We decided to give a BnB a chance. I normally do not like to stay in BnBs as you do not know what to expect. We liked the position of Sandpiper. It is really close to beach but still in walking distance to the town centre. It is has a real home feeling but still run very professionally. The bedrooms... More
