Svendsgaard's Inn was written up in Sunset Magazine which is how we found it. It's not a luxury hotel, but with good amenities for the cost. The front desk clerk went out of his way to ensure we were serviced well, as we were arriving late. The cookies and tea/water and cozy gas fire in the lobby were welcoming. We... More

There are several little lodges within a block or so of fourth and San Carlos so my wife and I have taken to calling it "cozy corner". This was our first stay at Svendgaard's and will not be our last. It is an older property (as are virtually all properties within the village) but has been renovated nicely, though not... More

We choose this group of hotels at least once a year, however this trip I have to say that the service was definitely lacking. While the room was mostly clean, there were some important missed items that should have been cleaned. My wife and I asked for water bottles each day and never received them unless we personally hunted down... More

We booked a king deluxe fireplace room for one quick night away without the kids. I wanted a jacuzzi tub and was not so concerned about the rest of the room. I was pleasantly surprised. The property is older, but remodeled and well maintained. We arrived before the 3 pm check in. Room was not ready, but staff was pleasant... More

There are not many hotels/inns in Carmel that are as spacious as Svendsgaard Inn. We had a two bedroom suite and it was very reasonable by Carmel standards, and definitely cheaper than having to rent two separate rooms for our family of four. The location itself is excellent - restaurants all around, and the Ocean Ave shops just a short... More

We stayed at Svendsgaard's Inn at our hwy 1 trip. This was a really pleasant stay. The location was really good (just a few minutes to the lovely restaurants and shops in Carmel), staff was really friendly and even provided us with a free bottle of wine since it was our anniversary - a really nice thought of them :)...

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.
