I found this hotel on line and took a chance. It was absolutely wonderful! Only a small block from the ocean~ safe to see ocean at night since many bonfires are going on at night. Staff was so friendly & hotel was clean and cozy!

The Colonial Terrace is where my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. It is located about 12 blocks from the town, tucked away in a beauiful residential area. There are adequate parking spots, and it's just a two or three block walk to the beach. Being so close to the ocean, we could hear the crashing of the... More

The location was perfect, just walking distance to the beach...perfect for an evening walk...which we did. Shopping and restaurants are close by. The room had a comfortable bed, fireplace and best of all French doors opening up to view of ocean. We were very delighted with our stay and will definitely be back.

We stayed two nights at the Colonial Terrace and found it just fine for meeting our needs. The rooms are large but not fancy, just a clean comfortable place to stay. Five minute walk to the beach and they will provide chairs, towels and flashlights if you go at night which we did. They have a pleasant continental breakfast with... More

Location is outstanding. The grounds are very nice. The room was okay, although some of the furniture was a bit run down and needs to be replaced. The bed was very comfortable. Also, as noted in other reviews, the outside lighting shines brightly into the room at night even with the blinds closed. The service was hit and miss... While... More

My boyfriend and I went on a mini vacay to Carmel and this place exceeded our expectations. Truly a hidden gem! The landscaping of the property is gorgeous, overlooking the beach. While the hotel is not right in front of the beach, its one block away and super convenient. We stayed in one of their double queen rooms which had... More

My husband and I needed a getaway. What a perfect place we found to celebrate our anniversary. The beach is only 1 block away, we could hear the waves crashing from our room. Bed was comfortable and staff is friendly. Only down side was the walls are a little thin, but what do you expect for the age of the... More

Located at 13th & San Antonio in a gorgeous neighborhood, just one block from Carmel Beach, is this great little gem! We stayed in room 23B. The room was not large by any standard, but it was clean and plenty of space for the two of us! It included a queen bed that was moderately comfortable with super great linens,... More

We had an awesome ocean view from the second floor and a gas fireplace. Service was good and the grounds were beautiful. Short walk to Carmel Beach. Short drive to town. Very Romantic! It was a great time!

The location for this property was wonderful. Close to the ocean, but far enough from downtown, which required a welcome brisk walk. The evening staff was reserved and could have been friendlier to their incoming guests.
