We wish we had stayed longer in Carmel and in particular the Sea View inn. The accommodation was so good (especially after our earlier disappointing visit to Cambria) it was spotlessly clean, comfortable and a lovely place just to relax and unwind. We were treated to a glass of wine in the early evening which was a really nice touch... More

My wife and I go to Carmel about once every 6 weeks but had never tried this B & B so we thought we would. The facility itself is gorgeous. The practice of offering guests a glass of wine and a snack in the evening is wonderful. My wife is gluten free and asked the first morning if they might... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. All the bedrooms were decorated differently and were very smart and exceptionally clean. There was no TV or telephone in the room which meant if you really wanted to relax was a great thing. Wi-if was available. Location was... More

With no televisions and no in-room telephones, the Sea View Inn is a perfect retreat for getting away from it all. The only concession to the modern world is the free WiFi access to the internet. We stayed in Room 9, a charming second floor room at the front of the house with large windows overlooking the local neighborhood. The... More

We (my husband and I) spent one night here during our California roadtrip, on our way down south. To say we loved it would be an understatement. Everything from the quiet street it's on, to the service was downright amazing. The wine offered was delicious and the breakfast simply wonderful, with eggs made to order and fresh baked goods. The... More

What a wonderful place with the most accommodating staff and cute rooms (cute because they are small but very well appointed). We stayed in Sept 2013 and I cannot say enough good things about the place. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms on the 3rd floor but it had a bathroom. I would have no problem saying in... More

We stayed here for a stopover during our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We got the cheapest room (room 1) with shared bathroom. The bathroom was very clean and well maintained. Bedroom was small and cosy. The hotel is quaint and quiet. It's less than 5mins drive from highway 1 exit, carmel town central and the beach.... More

We wished our stay was longer. Loved the safe environment to walk around and explore. Great beach access - no sea view from our room but it was certainly relaxing! Loved the evening small bites and wine. Breakfast was good - can't really remember what I ate - hors d'oeuvres were more memorable.

Beautiful room with stoning bathroom. Extremely nice and service minded personnel that do their outmost to assure that you feel well taken care off. In the evenings complementary wine is served accompanied with snacks in the main lounge with the fireplace lit or if you prefer on the porch. Every morning, breakfast is served with a wide variety to choose... More

What a treat it was to arrive at Sea View Inn. A smiling welcome and a glass of wine was a great way to start our two night stay. Our room was on the 3rd floor with an ensuite and a glimpse of the sea. No lift, which meant carrying our bags up to our room but this wasn't a... More
