My wife and I are frequent visitors to Carmel, having married at the historic Mission there. We have stayed at a number of different hotels and inns over the years (many of them very nice), but the Sea View Inn has been our overall favorite. It's just off the beaten path but still in the heart of Carmel, so you... More

My husband I stayed at the Sea View Inn for one night while travelling in California. It is located in a residential area within walking distance from the beach and shopping areas of Carmel. The inn was very comfortable with nice linens. A breakfast was provided in the morning with fruit, cereal, breads and pastries. In the evennig wine is... More

This location is nice, keepers were very nice, the puppy willie was a pleasure, the rooms were honestly super small but very clean. Women be forewarned no blow dryer so bring yours and men be forewarned no TV so bring your wife. The wine and cheese was high quality. Would stay here again. If you are tired we recommend Tommy...

My partner and I stayed at The Sea View Inn in Carmel on our way down the pacific coast. Although we only stayed one night, we were made to feel as if it was our home away from home. The house is beautiful and located in a leafy road about 10 minutes walk from the main shopping avenue. Our room,... More

My significant other and I stayed in the Sea View Inn over the turn of the year, and really liked the Inn quite a lot. We stayed in a shared bathroom room the first night (on the top floor) and then in a private bathroom room the second and third night (these are on the second floor). On the upside,... More

We chose to stay at the Seaview Inn after checking out Trip Advisor reviews for just about every hotel and B&B in Carmel - and we found it absolutely delightful - and excellent value. The location is great - a few blocks from the main village and a very short walk to the ocean, in a quiet residential area. The... More

I decided to stay here because of the reviews that I had seen on tripadvisor. I booked directly with the property with no problems. We stayed for one night in room four, with a private bath, which is right at the top of the house. We were next to the rooms that had a shared bathroom. Our room was great... More

My wife and I had a really nice two night stay at this B&B during our first trip to Carmel last week. Our room was charming- not modern , but very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The staff were all very nice and eager to please. We took advantage of the free breakfast each morning and the wine and cheese reception... More
