We have enjoyed the ambiance of Colonial Terrace on several occasions and wouldn't think of going anywhere else when we are in the area. A lovely relaxing property so convenient to the beach & community.

We enjoyed the location of the Colonial Terrace as it is just a short walk to the beach and a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to town from the hotel. The grounds were very pretty and relaxing and the staff was nice. The continental breakfast was better than I expected as it included hard boiled eggs and yogurt... More

Ideal spot in Carmel for a relaxing, quiet vacation. Picture book setting. Well maintained yet retains the ambiance of the old days in which it was first established. Quaint and classy without being pretentious. Love the place!!

After a very disappointing stay in Monteray at the Hotel Pacific The Colonial Terrace was a very refreshing stay. The staff and the room were excellent, the location was the best. Close to town and a short walk to the ocean. The rooms are very clean and the staff very helpful.

We enjoyed our stay in Carmel and thought the Inn was very nice. Our room was spacious and clean, and the staff was courteous. The continental breakfast was tasty. The gas fireplace was very nice to sit by in the Inn Lobby. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were luxurious. The only drawback we saw was the fact that... More

Very nice and quiet Carmel location, three minute walk to beach and 10 to restaurant area. Friendly staff, nice lobby that serves as a "living room." Great grounds. Room small but very clean and nice. Would go back there anytime and probably will ....

The location was perfect. Away from the city and yet within quick driving distance. Beach was right across the street and the room was quiet and restful. The room was neat and comfortable, staff great
