This Inn has the charm of a small 1950s motel, but has been thoughtfully updated with comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers, refrigerators, and other conveniences. We stayed in a Double Queen room, which was clean and average in size. We loved the idea of continental breakfast being delivered to our door every morning, and thought the quantity... More

Our stay here was mediocre at best. Nothing especially good about any aspect of this place. The rooms are really close to a motel than an Inn, definitely not as nice as many nearby B&Bs. I had a hard time finding a place for our trip that was within our price range, but now I wish I had spent the... More

Such a relaxing and well located place to stay with the dog. Fireplace, jacuzzi tub, quiet and relaxing. Nice courtyard and pool also. The staff is friendly and helpful. Just a few blocks to shopping, restaurants and wine tasting bars.

Came for the Halloween weekend with friends. Stayed in a deluxe king suite. Most enjoyable experience. Loved the spa tube for two people and the fireplace. Beds were comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Little noisy especially when the people upstairs used the tube. Will stay here again when in Carmel.

The hotel is nicely located on the edge of downtown. The room was large but located on a corner, I never would have expected so much noise from the street. Since there is no fan, of course no AC, we had to have the windows open. As for the bedding, if your partner moves somewhat you will be awakened for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in october 2014. The first thing I discovered was that the Internet rate was not the the actual rate we were charged. I'm guessing they have not updated their web page to the higher cost so if I were you, check that out before you book. Aside from that, my biggest complaint is that... More

I recently returned from a short, mid-week trip to Carmel, staying at the Svendsgaard's Inn. I found Svendgaard's to be excellent value for money, comfortable, clean, friendly, and well-located. The room (a basic double) was significantly cheaper than any other options I could locate in central Carmel; I was a bit nervous that the hotel might be a dive due... More

We enjoyed our stay the room was clean, spacious, and quiet- breakfast brought to the door, a roomy in-suite whirlpool with a TV screen was the best place to recoup from the big sur marathon! It cost a pretty penny but we really enjoyed our stay!

The property was located a very easy walk to the village of Carmel. The desk clerks restraint recommendation was so good we ate there twice. The bed was more comfortable than my one at home. Wonderful in room coffee. I only wish I had gotten in the pool.

Lovely hotel, very comfortable and breakfast delivered to your door in a cool bag which is ideal for an early start. Central location and parking was not a problem. Would certainly recommend. The only downside, there was no air conditioning.
