After two years my girlfriend and I went back to the Wayside Inn. Last time we had a bigger room, but I relaly cannot complain. The magic ambiance is there, the friendly staff just as friendly. Breakfastwas even better, with freshly baked pastries. Thank you Wayside Inn

Booked thru AMEX and used points. Stayed for my wife's birthday weekend. We were in Room 5 on the first floor by the office. Definitely could hear the creaking of the 2nd story floorboards but no conversations. Hotel looked full so didn't even bother asking for a 2nd story room. Previous reviews had some negative reviews for the breakfast, but... More

We celebrated my birthday with an extended stay in Carmel (any excuse to go to Carmel!). Having stayed at the Carriage House Inn before, and been extremely happy with our stay there, we decided to give the Wayside Inn a chance (both hotels seem to be owned by the same company, or at least closely affiliated?). We came in with... More

We have stayed here numerous times and it always wonderful. We have stayed at 4 of the 7 or 8 Inns by the Seas resorts and this is our favorite inn. It is always clean and welcoming. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. This last visit Sylvia went above and beyond to make sure we properly compensated for... More

We have been going to Carmel for 30 years & this is a very nice place to stay. We highly recommend it! Very clean & cosy but modern & updated. For breakfast, you're given a list of things to choose from & it's delivered to your room.

If you are looking for a friendly and conveniently located hotel in Carmel look no further. Very friendly staff, great location, well priced and very comfortable rooms with a bonus breakfast. Don't miss this beautiful town Rob Gooden from Perth Australia

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and met all our needs. There was even a flashlight in the drawer as Carmel is very dark at night. Breakfast was great. You ordered from many choices including quiche, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and pastries. The breakfast was then delivered to your door at the time you requested.... More

We stayed here one night on our trip down the coast from San Francisco to LA. Although we saw the room online when we booked we were pleasantly surprised to find it even more charming ( you know sometimes those professional pictures can be misleading) than we expected. Check in went smoothly although in a more personal setting of a... More
