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

The room was fantastic. Within walking distance to everything in Carmel. Great views, updated and very quiet. Gas fireplace in bedroom for the cool nights. Nice breakfast in common area. A very peaceful place to stay.

We stayed at Tradewinds in October 2014 (sorry for the late comment). Our only disappointment about the hotel is that we couldn't stay longer than one night because our plans wouldn't allow it. The room was perfect - beautifully decorated, wonderfully clean, incredibly comfortable and romantic for our honeymoon road trip. The little details are what really stood out for... More

We stayed for 2 nights in July 2015. The hotel itself is a tastefully converted motel, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathroom was spacious and modern. I unfortunately found one of the receptionists quite snippy when we were checking in, I was clarifying our room type and location and she responded with "it's the room you booked" which... More

We loved staying here. Front desk was very helpful and nice, room was very pretty, clean and romantic. They had free little bags of pretzel, candy and nuts that were actually really good quality. Breakfast was great. We would stay at Tradewinds again for sure, great experience!
