We spent two nights here on a Living Social deal, and were really happy with our experience. When you reserve rooms through a discount broker you don't know your room number until the day you arrive, but we really lucked out with ##48 the "St. Anne" upstairs room, complete with king sized bed, flat-screen TV, and large jacuzzi tub.

Stayed in a beautiful roomy suite with garden view. The maids cleaned room prompt ly in morning. The front desk clerk, Carol, made an original personalized welcome card to make us feel extra special. We will plan to stay here again.

Great Location, Spotless, Friendly Staff, Good Vibes! If you are looking for a place to stay in Carmel....It's difficult to improve on this "Friendly Inn"...We truly enjoyed the ability to walk, with ease, to many wonderful Carmel locations. Our rooms were very clean and the over-all ambience was unmistakable! The Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were clean... More

We were in Carmel twice in two weeks, and decided to try a new (to us) b&b. No cell phone or internet on hwy 1 meant we just drove into town at 4pm with the AAA guidebook for an address. At first glance Briarwood is like many other b&b's here, but their garden view room was of a small plot... More

We recently stayed in room 46 and absolutely loved it! It is more like a suite than a room, very spacious. We loved the layout so much, my husband said that if we ever build a vacation cabin somewhere, he would base the floor plan on this room. The innkeeper when we were there on a recent weekend, Carol, was... More

We have stayed several times at the Briarwood Inn. The rooms are very clean, and many have fireplaces (which we love). If you enjoy a walk, it is very convenient to walk down to the ocean and see the views of Cypress trees, lovely homes, etc. If you enjoy shopping, this Inn is just a couple of blocks from the...

The Briarwood Inn is a charming and a good place to stay while in Carmel. It is close to many fine restaurants, near downtown Carmel, and they accept pets( for a fee) Our room was comfortable, with a kitchen and a small porch making it a good size rental. The staff were very helpful and the B&B itself was larger... More

The rooms were very quaint and clean. I was impressed with the staff. They were nice and helpful, especially Carol who was able to recommend great restaurants and local attractions. I definitely plan to return.
