We stayed here the first weekend of January 2014 in the standalone cottage. My initial impression was exceeded upon drive-in. The internet pix don't do the place justice. The property is meticulously landscaped, this coming from someone who has been gardening for 20+ years. The cottage is in the back of the property, very quiet and private entrance. We enjoyed...

Arrived late at night but this place is easy to find. Greeted by a really helpful receptionist who gave me a lovely room-very clean and comfortable with a modern bathroom. Good continental breakfast. The only slight downside is noise from the road but that's just during the day; it was very peaceful through the night.

I was in town for conference and was unable to find any reasonable accommodations within my budget. I asked a couple of friends and they recommended this Bed & Breakfast Type Hotel. I was quite surprised in the amount of detail the room had and the "Themed Rooms" they had. Each room was different (didn't get to see other rooms... More

We had the worst experience here. I booked a room with a fireplace for my birthday weekend. I called ahead to make sure we had a quiet room away from the street, based on other reviews I did not want a sleepless weekend. We arrived and the night receptionist said there must have been a mistake in my reservation booked... More

I am sorry for the mistake. We corrected the literature on booking.com The front desk staff should have told you that there was a fire pit on premise. We corrected the issue with booking.com and will no longer have that problem. I will talk to my front desk about his absence from the lobby. Most of the time it could... More

Can't complain. The place is small but well maintained. The front staff (especially Tom, I think his name was) went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Brought us a refrigerator. I think the only problem with the place is they're a little understaffed. The front desk has to do everything from serve breakfast to check people in,... More

This is the perfect place to stay in Carmel if you want somewhere clean and nice but not overly expensive. It has been recently renovated and the new owners clearly are investing a lot in the property. The staff is wonderful and ready to assist with any matter. There is a fire pit out back that you can sit next... More

We checked into Vendange after being unable to get into Yosemite due to the government shutdown. We decided to salvage the last days of our vacation by going to the coast and enjoying Monterey Bay's beautiful shoreline (amazing state where you can go from the mountains to the sea in 3 hours). We were packed to stay in a cabin... More

Well located, not too expensive for Carmel standards, recently refurbished suites, calm neighborhood, peaceful with a very nice fruit garden. Weather was foggy almost everyday, and quite cold for a summer time, but city is beautiful, and the nearby reserve is worth visiting. Good place to relax and decompress.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us! The central coast does get a bit of fog during the summer months- beautiful autumn season though! We thank you for the great review and we hope you visit us again next time you are in Carmel. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Vendange Carmel Inn has just been recently been renovated this month. We are doing a pre-opening starting now to showcase our new rooms with brand new furniture and brand new bathrooms as well. We have an exquisite pergola area and Wi-Fi that access all the buildings now. We have fixed the noise issues during the renovation process as guests reviews have told us both were a major issue. Now our rooms are very elegant, modern, and very tasteful with a special theme. Please come in and check them out! ... more   less
