My husband and I were traveling to Carmel for a wedding and made our reservations last minute. Our travel agent suggested Tradewinds and we are glad she did. The staff was warm, welcoming and extremely helpful - we had never been to the area and they mapped out the location of the wedding and reception for us. The hotel is... More

Made an impromptu trip to Carmel when out of town guests came to the bay area. Was over MLK weekend and calling to find a room in Carmel was challenging, as most places required 3 nights and we only had two... Tradewinds Carmel had no 3 night minimum and gave us a reduced rate, as we were reserving 2 rooms,... More

My husband and I stayed for five nights at the Tradewinds Carmel in October. We had a very nice time in Carmel and would love to go back. Very helpful and pleasant staff at reception, loved the robes and the nice soap in the room. Were given a pretty flower and a couple of fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate upon... More

Husband and I stayed for a mini getaway. Very welcoming staff, comfy bed and fair size room with a balcony. But no view. :( Otherwise, ok but I wish they cleaned the carpets, or perhaps got rid of carpet for wood flooring instead. That would go nicely with oriental theme. Nice and close to downtown Carmel. Breakfast is pretty slim.

my husband of two years surprised me with two nights here for our 2nd anniversary. I loved the place. It has a zen feel. The room was big and roomy with all you need. The bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub and roomy shower and big sink area. We were treated to chocolate covered strawberries in our room upon arrival. The... More

I had stayed at the Tradewinds over 10 years ago before their remodel and liked it then, but it does not compare to the beautiful and peaceful hotel I visited. I booked a partial view, 3rd floor king room with a balcony and I was extremely pleased with the gorgeous view of the hills, village and ocean. I cannot say... More

We first heard about Tradewinds through Jetsetter, but did not book through Jetsetter because we were there in June, high season, so the room was $375 plus taxes. I thought this rate was high, but the room and bed were very comfortable and I loved all the touches, the orchid when we arrived, the cookies at the front desk and... More

Hello and thank you for your kind review! I am so glad that you enjoyed all of the touches like the tradition of giving each guest an orchid sprig, the cookies, robes, etc. I am sorry that you weren't entirely happy with the breakfast. It is a fairly extensive continental breakfast buffet. The pastries come fresh from Parker-Lusseau, a local... More

Tradewinds was a nice surprise on my trip up the Cali coast! The inn itself was lovely - taking a classic inn design and making it feel luxurious and calm. The courtyard was outfitted with lush greens, torches and a nice fire pit. Parking was free and breakfast was included in our rate. The garden king was super spacious, and... More

I would strongly recommend this stay if you are visiting Carmel, CA. The Tradewinds is clean, peaceful and extremely comfortable. They serve a good breakfast that is included and there were no extra charges for parking, wifi etc.

This is a darling location in this cute cute town with warm and tasteful decor. The complimentary amenities of candies, nuts and chocolate covered strawberries were a very nice touch.
