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.

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

Spent a very comfortable couple of nights at the Sea View Inn. It is high quality for a B&B by UK standards, not sure how it compares by US standards as it's our first B&B experience. If it is typical, then it won't be the last. Very comfy room, quirky decor. Excellent breakfast, and the complimentary wine and nibbles in... More

My partner and I stay 3 nights over this Memorial weekend at this lovely inn in Carmel, CA. It's located conveniently close to the town and beach -- we never need to move our car for dinner in town or a beautiful morning walk on the beach. We stayed at Rm #1 with a large shared bathroom. The bathroom has... More

This was my first bed and breakfast and they set a very high bar for those that follow. We stayed in the 'Blue Room" which was everything I thought a B&B should be. Our room had beautiful antique furniture, beautiful linens, and and modern bathroom. Breakfast each morning had cereal, fruit, yogurt, and breads. The inn is a short walk... More
