What a gorgeous hotel! The rooms are lovely with very thoughtful additions like complimentary snacks, an orchid on arrival and CD's for relaxing. Breakfast is one of the best buffets we've had but the icing on the cake is the helpfulness of the staff. You won't be disappointed with this one!

This place rests your mind as well as your body, We were pleasantly surprised. This is a gem of a hotel in the Carmel area. The staff and management are pleasant, helpful, and very accommodating. The continental breakfast is a splendid way to start your day. I highly recommend staying here.

This hotel was PERFECT! Starting from check-in to departure, everything met our expectations. The front desk staff and bellhop were great a check-in time, the rooms are beautiful! Our room had two super comfortable queen beds, beautiful decor, and deluxe bathroom. Little touches like soothing ambient music on arrival, sturdy light-blocking plantation shutters, kimono style robes, complementary snacks--and who could... More

Lovely property in charming downtown Carmel....peaceful and quiet, lush landscape, Zen inside the rooms and outside with a fire pit. Great continental breakfast included. Little touches always mean so much!

The Tradewinds is tucked away on a quiet street on the north-side of Carmel. This area has many renovated "motel" type B&Bs amongst which some are more renovated that others. The Tradewides definitely falls into the more renovated category. In a town that prides itself on "shabby-chic," the Tradewinds is definately more chic. The rooms are well appointed, really comfortable... More

We were pleased with our choice considering all the options available. Orchids received at check in. Cookies in the lobby and chocolate strawberries in the room. Beautiful Asian theme which we enjoyed as we had lived in China for many years. A nice multi level courtyard. A short walk to stores and restaurants and a little longer to the beach.... More

Stayed two nights in 2015 had a really nice stay in this design transformed old motel which became a peaceful and serene inn. Thought it was reasonably priced compared to others we looked at, though at maybe a hundred dollars less a night you don't get a pool or work-out gym but you do get a nice location at the... More

The entire experience was warm and inviting with wonderful friendly staff and special touches like music and chocolate covered strawberries in the room. The room was a wonderful spa tub and is all marble/upgrades. The view from the room was gorgeous as well. The courtyard as a wonderful Asian feel and they light up the candles in the evening. It's...

This property is located higher up the hillside, a short walk into the main town of Carmel. The owners created an Asian theme and my room was airy, clean, and relaxing. A couple of chocolate dipped strawberries were awaiting me upon my arrival. The room also had a small fountain with running water in the hallway, which added to the... More
