Stayed for 2 nights on our drive from SF to LA Really quaint guest house, so welcoming. Parking adequate on the street in a quiet spot. Great healthy breakfast and the complimentary wine on the evenings where you could sit and chat with fellow travellers was a real treat. Many thanks

This was our first experience of Carmel and it has to be said that things got off to a fabulous start with the accommodation reservation. The host was absolutely wonderful. The place is immaculately presented and spotless. Very well positioned for the wonderful white sanded beach. The nice touches such as the wine and nuts and the delicious breakfast made... More

Having only been to the South Beach (Miami) and NYC 'Festivals, Pebble Beach Food and Wine was Emily's and my first on the West Coast. It only seemed fitting that we attend; after all, Emily now resides in San Francisco, and I'm in LA. With hotel options being slim because of the popularity of the Festival, I felt incredibly fortunate... More

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.
