My girlfriend and I stayed at the SeaView last weekend and really enjoyed it. It's just a few blocks from the beach and a nice walk to uptown restaurants and shops. Our room was very clean and pleasant and we loved the healthy, large breakfast served each morning. In the afternoons, we enjoyed wine and cheese (coffee, tea and cookies... More

This is not a straightforward review to write, as there's not exactly much that's really awful about Sea View Inn - it's just not at all 'as advertised', and we felt so disappointed and let down that we checked out after one night of a planned three-night stay (and we're not usually picky like that, as you can see from...

We found this lovely B&B in Carmel just 2 blocks from the beach and a short walk to the main street. We felt welcome and comfortable immediately when we checked in - just in time for the complimentary wine and cheese. The house is delightfully furnished with antiques and comfortable furniture. Our room on the second floor with large windows... More

We were so lucky to find this hidden gem! we booked one day ahead, unaware of the US open, geeez we were lucky to even get a room. Luckily they got a cancellation just prior to my phone call. anyway, the Sea View Inn was our best experience on the west coast (we travelled the whole coast for 1 month)... More

We stayed at the Sea View Inn as part of a three week road trip around West Coast America. The Inn is nicely located in a peaceful part Carmel - a very short walk to the beach (5-10 minutes) and a bit further to the centre of Carmel. We were greeted warmly on arrival and invited to the wine and... More

When we arrived at Sea View Inn, my husband was initially disappointed. We had just had an amazing experience at Glendeven Inn near Mendocino. Everything there was about as perfect as possible. Being called Sea View my husband was ready for that view...from our second floor room maybe maybe a glimpse. Yes, we could hear it somewhat. However we were... More

This B&B is located only 3 minutes away from the beach and 7 minutes away from the centre of town. My room was great. I spend 2 nights in the smallest room upstairs, which was bigger than I had expected. I stayed there on my own and I really didn't need more space than the room provided. I felt very... More

My boyfriend and I are from New York and took our first trip to Carmel. We could not have been happier with the Sea View Inn. We stayed in the smaller, third floor room and shared a bathroom with one other room. In my opinion the room was perfect and sharing a bathroom was not an issue at all. Breakfast... More

I spent two days with my daughter and we were very sad when we had to leave. The house is perfect and should definitely be Tripadvisor’s number 1. We arived tired, past 7 PM, and Mary was wating us with a glass of wine - the best that could have happened to us. Tracy, the owner, is a person that... More
