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.

The Colonial Terrace Inn in Carmel, CA has a lovely setting just one block from the beach with beautiful gardens and places to gather. It was convenient, well run and charming. We can't wait to return again!

Loved the quiet location of this property! The rooms are bright and clean and love the sound of ocean through the windows! Staff are all extremely friendly and helpful! The property is kept immaculate! It's some distance from center of Carmel. Not walkable to town center for elderly people but walkable for young to fit middle aged. Access to beach... More

Pretty property and friendly staff, located one block from Carmel Beach. We enjoyed our stay and continental breakfast was convenient. There is a nice garden area and sitting room for relaxing. We will be back again.

Perfectly and quietly situated in beautiful Carmel within walking distance to "downtown" restaurants and shops (but not too close to the activity) and very close to the beach. The room was larger with a fireplace, kitchen and porch. The whole place is very cozy and pretty with a flowered landscaping and quaint buildings and patios. Great find.

Loved the location of this Inn. It is one block from the beach & a 10 min. walk from Ocean Ave. The room we had needed to be updated (esp. the bathroom) but the room was clean, comfortable & reasonably priced. We would definitely stay again.

Cute place and great location near the beach. Set off the main town a bit which is good for the people who want quite. The bed was very comfortable and we could hear the waves of the ocean when it was quite. The only negative in the room is that the bathroom was very dated and the counter was super... More

A lovely setting and very convenient to the beach. Cookies were a real plus as well! Very nice for a quiet getaway for two and adequate parking. Location is away from the hustle of Ocean Ave. The flower beds and tables should make for a great place come Spring.
