room was very comfortable and attractive. plenty large and clean. Only objection to the Tradewinds was its location from center of Carmel. Although it was only 4-5 blocks from Ocean Ave. the walk was not particularly easy because of a fairly steep hill the last 1-2 blocks when returning to the hotel. However parking at and around Tradewinds was not... More

Tradewinds Carmel is a very clean boutique hotel I with very helpful staff. Boutique has a wonderful Zen feeling with tropical flavor combined with the luxury and quaint feeling the Carmel offers. Something that couples of any age would really love. From the moment we arrived we were relaxed and comforted by the wonderful staff.

There seems to be some confusion on whether Tradewinds Carmel is a B&B. As someone who's stayed in some of the best B&Bs in CA, NM, NC, and Italy, I can assure you that this is NOT a B&B by any definition of the term. But let's start with the good stuff. The hotel is located almost perfectly so that... More

Wonderful choice for a peaceful visit to Carmel. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable, the bathroom elegant and updated. Spa soap was heavenly. Breakfast was fresh and tasty with a beautiful selection of fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, hearty cereals and breads and pastries. Fruit infused ice water and cookies in the lobby, and covered strawberries in your room... More

A friend and I stayed 4 nights at Tradewinds Carmel. The grounds were compact, but amazingly peaceful. Several fountains flowing at all times helped drown out any noise from other guests. The staff was extremely helpful and the breakfast was a very nice selection, even if you have food sensitivities. Dozens of amazing restaurants, specialty stores, boutiques and wine tasting... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July to visit both Carmel and Monterey. Great location in terms of being able to walk to Ocean Road which is the main high street. The room was very well decorated and with our own water feature making it a very peaceful and serene environment. :) Outside, the courtyard has been landscaped well... More

I absolutely loved this luxurious yet homely B&B. Upon arrival, we were first of all checked in by a friendly and welcoming team of ladies and a bellboy who helped us with our luggage, which really set the overall atmosphere. The B&B itself is located close to the lovely center of Carmel, so everything is basically within walking distance, which... More

This was our third hotel in our visit of San Francisco and Napa. We booked here last minute and were truly amazed. The staff was warm and welcoming from Christine at the front desk to the helpful bellman. The grounds are very zen and peaceful with beautiful gardens and fountains. In the evening the torches are ignited and the fire... More
