We loved Carmel and we were very happy that we stayed at the Sea View Inn. Nice residential area, very quit and so close to the beach and city center. The rooms were very charming and clean with nice bathroom products! Breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit and good service! Would def come back and stay for longer !

My wife and I spent two night here. It is located 8 or 9 blocks from town; not bad on a nice day or night when parking is a problem. We had a small room that had a nicely appointed shared bathroom. For some reason, there is no waste baskets in the bedroom, kind of off putting. The breakfast is... More

We come to Carmel every year to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends, and we always stay at the Sea View Inn because it is absolute perfection. The staff are all amazing - so friendly, warm and helpful. You feel like you are visiting old friends. The facility itself is lovely - well decorated and kept spotlessly clean. We prefer... More

It's a beggar to find this lovely place, as the street names and numbering are so quirky. But what a find! Quite New England looking with its wooden facade and balcony, complete with lounger chairs, the decor is individual and colourful, with antique pieces. Our room took up the whole front width of the house on the first floor, with... More

We recently spend two very comfortable nights at this inn. The staff is was so welcoming and helpful. We had a room on the second floor, it was so quiet, we never heard any noise from any other guests. We met some lovely people over pre -dinner wine and the delicious breakfasts. We could walk to town and to the... More

well, the room was a little small but apart from that, what a wonderful place to stay. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we walked through the door until the day we left. Margot, Minerva and the gorgeous Kelly were always a pleasure to talk to and couldn't do enough for you. It was our wedding anniversary... More

It was such a great pleasure to have stayed here, we loved everything about it. The whole Inn has such a quality feel to it throughout. The decor gives an uplifting feeling, I can honestly say I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else but here if I'm lucky enough to visit Carmel again. We stayed in a room on the 3rd... More

I just couldn't say enough good things about this wonderful inn. We loved the small but perfectly formed room with the shared bath. Sharing a bathroom really wasn't an issue for us and the bathroom itself with its beautiful shower and fixtures was a pleasure to use (I took some pictures so that we can plan our bathroom at home...

We loved this place. Stayed in a beautiful, comfortable room with a view of the pretty back yard. Staff was amazing and made us feel like we were staying with friends. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was perfect. A very short walk from town and the beach, yet located in a very quiet neighbourhood. Loved Carmel and loved the Sea View... More

We stayed here for two nights for a wedding we were attending in town. It was a charming little B&B very close to the heart of downtown. We met some lovely people the first night over complimentary wine in the great room. We had a shared bathroom on the top floor, plus our room had a sink and mirror in... More
