I stayed here with my family for one night in March 2015. There was no parking at the hotel,,,or I believe there were three spaces for the entire inn. Had to park on the village street a block away. Upon entering the room, we found the cheapest, smallest soaps for the shower along with shampoo-in-a-packet. The towels were of the... More

We got the hotel online. The hotel location is good and that's why we reserved it. When we got there, (king room, ocean view). The pillows smelled. My wife went down to politely ask to get new sheets. The front desk lady was very aggressive. Later she brought a set of sheets handed to us said we had to change... More

My neighbor and I attempted to stay at this hotel. As soon as I saw the threshold at #9, I was suspicious; when I opened the door, I was shocked. The room had furniture that was badly chipped, there was a musty BO smell, the bathroom needed caulking; the room was so small, I still wonder how they manged to... More

Sometimes one must look @ weight of negatives & realize many seemingly unrelated people singing a tune cannot be conspiracy. This is the classic case of small business owner milking a chip in the big game (beds in Carmel in good location) for lifestyle. Hotels are unlike other biz; ppl rely on minimum comfort in housing (unlike pinching pennies to... More

We stayed one night at the Wayfarer Inn, and it was lovely. We arrived to complimentary wine as the inn was holding one of their regular wine tastings. Dyanne greeted us warmly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. The rooms have all the essentials you could need and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is fairly basic but what was... More

A less than stellar experience. Very noisy. Very basic room. Lots of stairs to climb with luggage. Breakfast was cardboard basic. We paid extra to have three in a room, and had to deal with trundle bed with just a sheet. Wifi is NOT secure and one laptop high jacked.

The Wayfarer room with Fireplace was Loud (street side) couldn't sleep, windows difficult to open & very musty smell, shower head wouldn't work & over priced. Next time we will stay at the Portola Hotel just 10 Minutes away.

I've read all the negative reviews about this place, wondering if they are talking about somewhere else! Small quaint little inn if you are looking for something simple. Cute cottage like rooms with a dutch door. Wine and cheese served in the afternoon and a small quick continental breakfast in the morning. Only thing that could have made it better... More

The Inn is comfortable, well-located and served our needs well for three beds (one king; two twin). We enjoyed the in-room fireplace and the property is charming. What prompts me to write though is the extraordinary service, attention and knowledge of Deyenne, who received us so warmly and ensured our comfort every step of the stay. She helped with restaurant... More

I just wanted to write to let others know I would not recommend staying at this hotel. One minute after booking a room on expedia for the wrong night I called the hotel to change the date or cancel the reservation. The Owner of the hotel denied both my requests. Given the service here I hope others stay away.
