I would with out reservation recommend a visit to the Colonial Terrace over other Inns and hotels in the area, due to the: proximity to the beach, the privacy of the sleepy residential neighborhood, stunning ocean views, professionalism of staff and competitive room rates. This was my 4th stay with Colonial Terrace while visiting the Carmel area and we have... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Colonial Terrace in Carmel. We were VERY pleased with our choice. The location, although several blocks from the shops and restaurants, was still within walking distance and was divinely quiet. The hotel is also just one block from the amazing Carmel Cove. What a divine spot! A walkway along the top edge... More

The room, breakfast and location were excellent. However, the people next door complained about our TV being to loud. A mystery since we were often not there and never turned on the TV. We did not stay up late and spoke in normal voices. So I don't know if the walls are thin or a problem with this couple. It... More

Conveniently located near downtown Carmel and just a block or two from the beach, this comfortable accommodation is the place to be! Friendly staff, nice breakfast and comfy rooms will bring me back again.

Great place to stay further away from downtown Carmel. It's quiet and quaint. The breakfast was great and the sunset was gorgeous (viewable not from our 2 queen bedroom but the courtyard). Will definitely stay here for our next trip.

FABULOUS!! Charming, great location a block from the beach. Different rooms for different needs. Beautiful grounds made for a very relaxing trip. You can see the ocean from the outside patio which was nice to just sit and enjoy. So warm & cozy. Yummy cookies at 4pm everyday😜
