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😜

Great location just a block away from the beach. Friendly staff although think they are somewhat stubborn about checking in no earlier than 3:00 pm. Think they can make an effort to coordinate at least some rooms for earlier check in as it seemed that was just engraved in their procedure as opposed to try and accommodate you. Breakfast is...

A lovely location close to the beach. Room was well appointed with nice furniture. Very comfortable bed. Only down side to Carmel is there are not street lights so we had to use a torch to walk to a restaurant in the evening. Not easy when you don't know the area. Overall though a very pleasant stay.

You have a beautiful property. The location is 1 block from the Carmel beach, we enjoyed romantic walks on the beach. It is the perfect romantic get away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Enjoyed the large Jacuzzi tub, and the view of the ocean.

Location of CT is excellent, just block or so from the beach. You can hear the waves while you sleep. The accommodations are welcoming, comfortable and private. It is the perfect setting for a peaceful visit and socializing if you care to engage. The staff is always helpful and your stay at CT is their priority. Thank you.

We love Colonial terrace...always a restful experience with a great staff. The property is lovely with great proximity to the beach. The flowers all around add to the ambience. The recommendation for dinner was great.
