We happened on it by seeing it online on our way in to Carmel. They have a well deserved 5 stars. We stayed on the top floor one night and another floor the next night. Both rooms were great and the baths amazing. Tracy does an amazing job with her families former home and the food and service was impeccable.... More

I agree with other reviews, the inn is lovely, the staff friendly, but when I got "stuck" staying on the 3rd floor or the attic, in Room 4, for $200. a night, that did it for me. The stairs from the 2cnd floor to the 3rd are treacherous. I realize it is Carmel and of course California but this room... More

Thanks very much for noting that our Inn is lovely and staff friendly - much appreciated. I'm truly sorry that you were unhappy in room 4. We have many guests that love that room, but it's always a personal response, and we wish you would have been happier. I'm not sure why you thought there was false advertising Here is... More

We decided to stay in a B and B as an alternative to the large hotels on our trip and this was a good choice. We were surprised that it is quite common apparently in the USA for there to be nobody living in so at 10pm the lounge area is locked for fire regulations and the staff member goes... More

As others have mentioned, the innkeepers are really friendly and accommodating. I somehow missed on our booking that not only was it not an attached bathroom, it was shared. Once over the shock, it was not much of an inconvenience except there was no shampoo, conditioner or soap in the bathroom. I requested some and the staff was great about... More

We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with the service and the room. The room was large and the bathroom was newly renovated and beautifully done. The house is just 2 blocks from the ocean and there is a walking path that goes for miles.This is very close to restaurants and the shops on Ocean Blvd. Be aware that... More

We stayed in the king with a garden view, #6. Room was fine, private bathroom small but beautifully appointed. Very clean, but Laura Ashley decor in room was dated (not timeless). Main area and breakfast tables were cute. This in is well kept inside and out; nice quiet garden in back and deck in front. Brenda and staff were great... More

I would say this property was pretty typical of the style in Carmel and it was nice to stay in it and see what the interiors are / can be like. I thought there were lots of original features. Our room was a reasonable size, comfy bed and with a bathroom across the hallway. Whilst that was a minor issue... More

First of all, the innkeepers were friendly, informative, and willing to make our stay great. The beach was about 2 blocks away with a very nice walking trail. Downtown was too far away to walk, but there are parking areas near the downtown. Our room was #4 in the attic with very steep and narrow stairs. Unless you have young... More

First the good news. The inn keepers were friendly and accommodating. The inn is only a block and a half from a beautiful beach but a long walk from the main downtown area. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood. Now for the disappointing features: (1) creaking floors so that you can hear every footstep of the people on... More

The Sea View Inn is located just a short distance away from the beach, with amazing sunsets. We had a room on the top floor with our own bathroom. It had a very homely feel to it and the bed was very comfortable. I have to point out as well that this was the cleanest room I had ever stayed... More
