We stayed there for only one night and it was very good. Very comfortable and spacious room. The breakfast served at the room is a good idea, but it could have more variety. We would stay there again.

We ended this years winter road trip in Carmel where we once again stayed for the fourth time in five years at the Sven. We had the same room as previously (No. 30) that has a separate sitting room as well as a sit in kitchen and fair bathroom with jetted tub and good shower. We received a return guest... More

Ask for the quiet rooms in the back. They bring you a basket full of food every morning with the newspaper. Cookies and coffee/beverages in the afternoon. Pool, and walking to all the local shops. It's in a peaceful area. This is our go to place every year!! I've been to a few in Carmel but this offers a lot.... More

We stayed here over the thanksgiving holiday. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel rooms were clean and spacious and a good value. And the beds were super comfortable. This is a pet-friendly hotel which is very important to us. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay in Carmel where we could bring out 12 year old golden with us and to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Svendsgaard's Inn was recommended by a close friend so we thought we would give it a try. The price was reasonable and it is located relatively close to the Carmel... More

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
