We stayed here for two nights before we came to San Francisco for business. We wish that we could have stayed here the entire time. Wonderful room, wonderful company!! If you are a clean freak. You will definitely love this place. The bathroom was gleaming!!! Loved Tracy and Margo such wonderful people !!!!

The Carmel Sea View Inn is an incredible find. We stayed here overnight while driving from San Francisco to LA, on highway 1. It is tucked in nicely, right next to Pebble Beach and the infamous 17 mile drive and has a great vibe to it. The fireplace, porch and shared living room gives an air of real homely charm... More

This is the second time I've stayed here, and it was just as good as the first. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is delicious. I love sitting by the fireplace. Great location, close to the ocean, shops, and fantastic places to eat. Very clean. Complimentary wifi. The only thing that could be improved upon is the quality of... More

We enjoyed a 1 night stay in early March and had a lovely time. It's located a short walk from the centre of town meaning the setting is really peaceful and you're just a 5 minute walk from the stunning beach. It's worth wandering the streets just to see the homes as they're all so different. The home is beautiful... More

We enjoyed our two night stay here. The location is great for the beach (5mins downhill) but less so for the Carmel shops and restaurants (20mins uphill). The service from all staff was brilliant. Wine hour was enjoyable. I would have liked to see more choice at breakfast but what they had was delicious. We had the King Room which... More

This was part of our honeymoon trip, what a beautiful way to spend a few days. Excellent staff, very helpful, beautiful views and highly reccommend this as a romantic get-a-away! Walking distance to the small shops in Carmel.

My wife happened on this charming spot through Booking.com which we understand is quite popular these days with travelers across the globe. The inn proved a delightful haven close to the beach and just far enough removed from the popular Ocean Ave with its wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants to provide seclusion and privacy. We stayed in room 8 on... More

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

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
