Once again, Svendsgaards exceeded our expectations. The new Inn Manager, Ricardo Lopez, catered to our every need. Our room was spotless and everyone at Svendsgaards, including the housekeeping staff, greeted us with smiles and made us feel very welcome. This place is a gem that keeps us returning time after time.

As an avid traveler, albeit every now and then, we (two couples and two kids) made our way to Carmel from Los Angeles. My wife and are finicky about where we stay and as it turned out my friend was unable to get us a place on the main street Ocean Ave in the heart of Carmel! This was devastating,... More

Stayed here for three nights. Fairly nice accommodations, with the larger suites resembling apartments that feature separate dining, living, and sleeping areas as well as built-in fireplace and full kitchen. Wireless internet and parking are both free. There is a heated pool on the property, and some rooms come with Jacuzzis, but there is no "hot tub" that is suitable... More

We arrived to a roaring fire and a lovely cozy room. The hotel has some very unique features. It has some cool old school finishes....wooden bar, tiled mini kitchen area. View of the ocean in the distance. Terrifically comfortable bed and linens. Breakfast is delivered to your room in a cooler. Nice and simple. I would definitely recommend this spot!... More

I stayed at Svendsgaard's Inn on 12/23/15 for one night. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable with a nice down comforter. I found the Inn to be very quiet. It is located two blocks from downtown Carmel which was nice to be able to walk to restaurants and shops. In the morning a cooler was... More

Keurig and coffee in our comfortable and spacious room. Great breakfast delivered to our door each morning! Five minute walk from center of Carmel. Close to restaurants, beach, and 17-mile drive. 10 minutes from Monterey. Great place to stay.

Pleasant place to stay. Very nice location. Just a short walk into town. Room was comfortable as was the bed. A good value. We liked the size of our room on the second floor. We were concerned that pet friendly would translate into noise. It did not. Room was quiet. We would go back.

Nice affordable pet friendly hotel. We stayed for one night only and it was very comfortable. A 'packed lunch' type breakfast outside our door however was a bit of a disappointment. Otherwise a nice little hotel.

This is a small and very comfortable motel / b&b. We spent 2 nights while visiting the area and getting ready for the Big Sur drive. We were well directed to evening eating places where our keycard entitled us to a discount and the breakfast was delivered in a coldbag outside our door at about 7.30 in the morning. The... More
