Sitting here, preparing to check out of this very lovely hotel. We are very sad to be leaving! What a great surprise this little peace of heaven turned out to be! The vibe of this hotel is one of pleasant relaxation. The attention to detail is exquisite, from luxurious rooms, fine bedding, fabulous Bali style robes, fireplace in the rooms,... More

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can hardly wait until you return, too! We are renovating the suite building (rooms 25-28) again with beautiful new furniture, silk pillows, bathroom tiles, and amenities. So we look forward to your impressions if you stay in room 28 again. We will also check into the WIFI. It shouldn't be spotty.... More

My wife and I took a quick break from reality with a winter weekend trip to Carmel and picked this hotel based on reviews on line. We had an "ocean King" room and it was fabulous, we loved the room, the service and the quite, sheltered location of the property even though it's a very short walk to town. The... More

Thank you for your kind review. There is nothing we like better than helping our guests relax and escape from day-to-day chores. I apologize for the timer in your room, we will look into that right away. We do take pride in our continental breakfast, however, we are also happy to suggest some of our favorite breakfast places if you... More

The hotel is just ok. The room was too hot, so it was impossible to get a good night of sleep unless you opened the door to the balcony. The thermostat didn't seem to be working and even with the heater on off, the room was very hot. The breakfast was very basic and there is only a few tables... More

I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. It is always a great concern when we have not met our guest’s expectations. During the holidays and busy times it can be active on the property and not always as peaceful as we would like. Although there are no hotels in Carmel with air conditioning we... More

An excellent hotel in the heart of Carmel 4th and Mission. Close to some great shopping and fabulous restaurants. Our rooms had two double beds, great decor, and a unique TradeWinds welcome of Chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels, mints and candies. Rooms had a refrigerator and a coffee maker. The bathrooms even had one of those heat lamps.

The room was beautiful. Peaceful setting. Very relaxing. Breakfast was delicious. Christine at the front desk was very patient and helpful when I arrived tired and frazzled at check-in. We were given great restaurant info and directions. I could have stayed there for weeks.

I cannot say enough nice things about staying here. First, the hotel was beautiful. It has tons of little details all around the property that are fantastic. It's also nice and secluded, but walking distance from the downtown so it's really easy to get to the wine rooms and restaurants, but also to the beach. The rooms are so cool... More

Comfortable room with sea view. Convenient parking (not always available on the crowded streets of Carmel). The staff responded quickly and helpfully to our variety of small requests and complaints. .

My wife and I stayed two nights just prior to thanksgiving. We enjoyed the decor and the room a lot. The room was very clean and faced the garden so we didn't have a view. The continental breakfast was very much to our liking with good coffee, fruit and berries, with plenty of fresh yogurt. The staff was very friendly... More

The hotels in Carmel by the Sea all tend to be older and have been around a long time. Tradewinds underwent a major renovation several years ago and remains a solid choice for convenient in town lodging. Comfortable, clean rooms and amenities although not luxurious. Very nice continental breakfast. Some of the rooms with good views of Carmel Bay but... More

Nice decoration in the room. A lot of Asian elements, Thai Buddhist statue, Chinese ancient painting, Japanese fountain, and bamboo staircases. Peek of the sunset at the top floor is amazing, Staffs are also hospitable, they hand you flowers as you check-in. Only thing I'm not very satisfied is there's not too much protein choice at breakfast
