As others have mentioned, the innkeepers are really friendly and accommodating. I somehow missed on our booking that not only was it not an attached bathroom, it was shared. Once over the shock, it was not much of an inconvenience except there was no shampoo, conditioner or soap in the bathroom. I requested some and the staff was great about... More

We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with the service and the room. The room was large and the bathroom was newly renovated and beautifully done. The house is just 2 blocks from the ocean and there is a walking path that goes for miles.This is very close to restaurants and the shops on Ocean Blvd. Be aware that... More

We stayed in the king with a garden view, #6. Room was fine, private bathroom small but beautifully appointed. Very clean, but Laura Ashley decor in room was dated (not timeless). Main area and breakfast tables were cute. This in is well kept inside and out; nice quiet garden in back and deck in front. Brenda and staff were great... More

I would say this property was pretty typical of the style in Carmel and it was nice to stay in it and see what the interiors are / can be like. I thought there were lots of original features. Our room was a reasonable size, comfy bed and with a bathroom across the hallway. Whilst that was a minor issue... More

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
