Svendsgaard's Inn has some nice features and some not so nice ones. On the plus side the grounds are wonderfully maintained, the rooms are clean and a good size. We also really liked their breakfast and they leave it on your doorstep in a small chilly bin so you can eat whenever you like which is great for us. The... More

We attended a geat together with a Harley group and the Inn was very accommodating to our requests for parking. Loved the location which was within walking distance for all the local attractions and a great base for day rides.

We were attending a wedding in town, so were just looking for something simple. Svendsgaard's was an unexpected pleasure: the beds were incredibly comfortable, the breakfast delivered to our door was generous, and the whole place was very peaceful and relaxing. Some of that is down to Carmel of course, but all in all it was very pleasant. Not giving... More

This B&B was recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint, it was close to the very pretty Main Street in Carmel and had some good restaurants near by, the breakfast is novel but a welcome relief from eggs bacon sausages and hash brown! Friendly staff and very clean worth a visit.

We stayed at Svensgaards last year for a weekend. I did not find anything elsewhere in the area to match price, location or staff friendliness and efficiency so we came back this year. We stayed longer for this trip, for four nights. Our room was spacious and bright and cleaned to the high standards we now come to expect here.... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights in Carmel. Check in was a breeze and the fellow that greeted us was friendly, efficient and very helpful. The location was great for walking to shopping and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely clean. Continental breakfast is delivered in a cooler to your room every day and has... More

Svendsgaard´s Inn is a charming little motel in Carmel. We had a smiling hearty welcoming in the front desk and for me, thats about 60% of the important stuff in any hotel/motel/resort. We had two rooms for two nights, not the biggest and most dazzling I have ever seen but clean and well appointed and it suited our needs. Walking... More

Stayed here with 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 mother-in-law and 1 (and only) wife. We had two adjoining rooms. The best feature is the location - just 2-3 blocks and you're in the thick of it in Carmel. It was very pet friendly, and the staff was helpful and professional. The grounds were very nice and full of flowers and... More
