This older property has one good thing going for it - its location on the edge of Carmel's shopping district with its multitude of shops, restaurants, jewelry stores and art gallerys. This positive, howver, is a negative as well, as the location is at a stop signed intersection with cars and trucks stopping and then accelerating at the stop sign... More

The Wayside is great place to use as a base of operations if you are taking on the wine tasting Carmel has to offer, not too mention the shopping and walking on the beach! The rooms are always immaculate and the service is excellent.

This hotel is in a great location, easy walking to restaurants and shopping in this charming small village. Our room was huge with a kitchenette area, large sliding door closet, fireplace, and double door balcony. Room was well appointed and it was nice to be in a "designer" room that has its own personality and had not morphed into the... More

My wife and I were staying at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey and visited Carmel on a trip - we loved it and decided to spend a couple of days in Carmel. The Wayside Inn seemed like a great place so we checked in for two days. The good stuff: a. You are a short walk from the town centre,... More

This is a wonderful little Inn to stay in the heart of Carmel, CA. Just 3 blocks and you are in the center of town enjoying all the wonderful shops and restaurants. The Inn is quaint, well managed, accommodating staff and very reasonable. Parking can be difficult, but there are spaces for one car per room. The rooms are large... More

We just spent two nights at the Wayside. We had a Deluxe King Suite. It was 2 completely separate rooms, bedroom and living room. This was great as we keep different hours sometimes. The mattress was awesome. The "Kitchenette" was just a big cabinet with a mini-fridge, toaster, coffee maker and cups. It was odd in that the toilet and... More

My boyfriend and I decided to spend our two year anniversary on vacation, but couldn't pick a place until the last minute, leaving us with few choices on where to stay. We settled on Carmel, and thankfully, the Wayside Inn had an available room for us. We called and booked a two night stay in the premium king suite in... More

We had a 2 night stay here in September and we are so glad we chose Wayside Inn. We felt the position was just right being off the main road which made it quiet yet close to everything we needed. The room was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. I emailed a couple of days before we arrived... More

Used TA to select my hotel and chose this on the back of good reviews. They were mostly right. Well located with off road parking (a big plus in central Carmel), our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. The staff were all very polite and welcoming. Whilst a short stay, we very much enjoyed our few nights at the... More
