We spent a night at the Sea View Inn and loved it. Our room (number 9) was really cute and comfy - shuttered windows, raised bed, roomy, en suite. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome and perfectly fine glass of wine (I read elsewhere that people thought it was poor - I like my wine). The inn is... More

Lovely front porch for hanging out, playing scrabble or eating a takeaway dessert, yummy breakfast, pleasant evening happy hour with wine and munchies. Room 9 was excellent, nice big room with en suite bathroom. Ladies recommended a lovely walk around the neighborhood which took us right down to the beach. Would recommend that you drive into Carmel, 5 mins, for... More

We stayed at this incredibly charming B&B on the California road trip bit of our honeymoon. I found that the Monterey Peninsula was a tricky place to find the "perfect" place to stay - but got it right in the end with the Sea View Inn! We booked room 9 which had an en-suite bathroom. It was finished in a... More

Such a wonderful inn. Margo is a fabulous host also! It has been an inn for at least 40 years so they know something about hospitality. Very comfortable and charming. We had the green room on the second floor in the front. Plenty of room and very comfortable. We love staying at B&B's as you meet the most interesting people.... More

The Sea View Inn was a fantastic stay! I'll start by saying that Carmel is a beautiful location, the weather couldn't have been better, and it is definitely not an overcrowded area (which we loved). If you are seeking a romantic, scenic, low key getaway, Carmel is a place that you must visit. Based off of my visit, I highly... More

There's a great feel of being welcomed into a family home here. We were shown to our room, found a place for dinner, then sat on the verandah with a complimentary glass of wine. It's enormously comfortable, and we had an excellent breakfast. A block away from the sea - easy few minutes' walk. Very peaceful residential area, twenty minutes'... More

This is a charming place not to be missed and also an outstanding value considering that Carmel is expensive. We stayed in rooms 4 and 5 on the upper level with narrow but very manageable steps going up. The rooms were small but delightful and a bit of an ocean view. The bathrooms were very nice! The hospitality and ambiance... More

We love Carmel and come every year to see in the New Year. Our favorite place to stay is the Sea View Inn. Carmel can be busy that time of year, but the Sea View is our little retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Ocean Avenue. It is a bit of a walk to town, but that's what... More

The Sea View Inn is amazing. We did a road trip from San Francisco- Los Angeles in September 2012 and Carmel (and the Sea View Inn) were the highlight of the trip. The owners are so welcoming and showed us up to our room. Delightful, clean and cosy room. The lounge with the fireplace was lovely too, and I especially... More

Stayed with friends from St. Louis for two nights in October. From the minute you arrive Tracy makes feel so special and nothing is too much trouble for her. We are from Ireland and wanted to watch the sunset from the beach. Tracy gave us to go cups with wine and cheese and the four of us watched the sunset... More
