What a treat it was to arrive at Sea View Inn. A smiling welcome and a glass of wine was a great way to start our two night stay. Our room was on the 3rd floor with an ensuite and a glimpse of the sea. No lift, which meant carrying our bags up to our room but this wasn't a... More

Spent a very comfortable couple of nights at the Sea View Inn. It is high quality for a B&B by UK standards, not sure how it compares by US standards as it's our first B&B experience. If it is typical, then it won't be the last. Very comfy room, quirky decor. Excellent breakfast, and the complimentary wine and nibbles in... More

My partner and I stay 3 nights over this Memorial weekend at this lovely inn in Carmel, CA. It's located conveniently close to the town and beach -- we never need to move our car for dinner in town or a beautiful morning walk on the beach. We stayed at Rm #1 with a large shared bathroom. The bathroom has... More

This was my first bed and breakfast and they set a very high bar for those that follow. We stayed in the 'Blue Room" which was everything I thought a B&B should be. Our room had beautiful antique furniture, beautiful linens, and and modern bathroom. Breakfast each morning had cereal, fruit, yogurt, and breads. The inn is a short walk... More

We spent a night at the Sea View Inn and loved it. Our room (number 9) was really cute and comfy - shuttered windows, raised bed, roomy, en suite. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome and perfectly fine glass of wine (I read elsewhere that people thought it was poor - I like my wine). The inn is... More

Lovely front porch for hanging out, playing scrabble or eating a takeaway dessert, yummy breakfast, pleasant evening happy hour with wine and munchies. Room 9 was excellent, nice big room with en suite bathroom. Ladies recommended a lovely walk around the neighborhood which took us right down to the beach. Would recommend that you drive into Carmel, 5 mins, for... More

We stayed at this incredibly charming B&B on the California road trip bit of our honeymoon. I found that the Monterey Peninsula was a tricky place to find the "perfect" place to stay - but got it right in the end with the Sea View Inn! We booked room 9 which had an en-suite bathroom. It was finished in a... More

Such a wonderful inn. Margo is a fabulous host also! It has been an inn for at least 40 years so they know something about hospitality. Very comfortable and charming. We had the green room on the second floor in the front. Plenty of room and very comfortable. We love staying at B&B's as you meet the most interesting people.... More

The Sea View Inn was a fantastic stay! I'll start by saying that Carmel is a beautiful location, the weather couldn't have been better, and it is definitely not an overcrowded area (which we loved). If you are seeking a romantic, scenic, low key getaway, Carmel is a place that you must visit. Based off of my visit, I highly... More

There's a great feel of being welcomed into a family home here. We were shown to our room, found a place for dinner, then sat on the verandah with a complimentary glass of wine. It's enormously comfortable, and we had an excellent breakfast. A block away from the sea - easy few minutes' walk. Very peaceful residential area, twenty minutes'... More
