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

We spent just one night at the Sea View, and while the experience wasn't bad, it wasn't nearly as pleasant as I had expected based on all of the glowing reviews. It shouldn't be news to anyone who has read reviews that this B&B is not on the beach, nor does it have an actual sea view, but the beach... More

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
