From the first moment through the door Tasha made me and my wife feel welcome and at home. Our room was clean and nicely appointed. We spent time on Carmel's lovely beach just a block away and watched stunning sunsets. The breakfast room was somewhat small for the amount of people staying at the Inn, however I didn't mind sitting... More

We could hear every conversation downstairs and in the hallway outside our door. We heard every door open and close all night long. The bed was very creaky. Paid way too much for this one-star experience.

When looking for a good place to stay for a few days in the Monterey Bay area, we were unsure whether to stay in Monterey, downtown Carmel, or somewhere else. This ended up being the perfect location: hardly a minute's walk from the beach, on a serene side street, with quick access to the downtown area as well as surrounding... More

We just returned from three wonderful days in Carmel. The Sandpiper Inn is just two blocks from the ocean in a lovely quiet neighborhood. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The breakfasts were yummy. The Sandpiper Inn is somewhere a small hotel and a B & B. Met other nice guests form Switzerland, England and of course California. We will... More

We had a great view from our windows. (We were in room number 7.) Hearing the ocean from our windows at night was very restful. A very nice breakfast was served each morning in the parlor. We would definitely stay again our next visit to Carmel.

For about 15 years, I have made an annual visit to Carmel and stayed at the Sandpiper. The Sandpiper feels like home to me...it is quiet, safe and comfortable. i particularly like staying in the garden cottage with its skylight, view of the tiny garden and the sound of the surf and smell of fresh air from the open window....

Between the proximity to the beach and the lovely cottage style rooms, this place was perfect. Sandpiper Inn allows for easy travel to Big Sur where hiking is a must and also up north to 17-mile drive which is a beautiful drive up and down the coast. With only a 5 minute walk from the beach this place is a... More

This was our first time staying at the Sandpiper, and it was pretty awesome. The Location is literally one block from the ocean; you can hear the waves at night which was pretty cool, the staff will even lend you flashlights if you want to venture for a night walk on the beach. The only knock I can say about... More
