We stayed at the Wayside Inn for three days this July 2014. We did have a slight problem with the room reservation but it was quickly corrected and Juan the site manager went out of his way to make everything right. The location is perfect and the room and breakfast was great. Would not stay anywhere else when we return... More

This is the most charming and wonderful hotel I have stayed in. It is laid out in the classic American motel layout, with external access to the rooms, but the walkways are adorned with beautiful flowers, fresh paint and spotlessly clean. It is the same inside the rooms. I was in Room 11 which is a lovely suite, with a... More

Wayside Inn is a super cute inn right in the heart of Carmel. Staff was friendly and the property was very quaint. The rooms were spacious and clean and the property offers onsite property - a real plus in Carmel. What made this place a true gem is the breakfast delivered to your room each morning.

I really enjoyed my stay at Wayside Inn. Rooms are large and mine had a separate living room where they serve you breakfast. I also looked at a very large room with fireplace that looked perfect for a winter stay. The big bathroom was heaven : thick towels, lots of them , and a good shower . There were lots... More

I was looking to embrace the beauty of Carmel with its quaint shops, breathtaking scenery, and pleasant atmosphere a friend recommended The Wayside Inn, which seemed decently priced in relation to its location and recently renovated accommodations. The Wayside not only delivered everything one could hope for from the allure of the are, but sets itself apart by the friendliness... More

Found the Wayside Inn by searching in area. Wanted something close to Ocean Avenue. This place was exactly what we were looking for. The room was spacious. Living room separate from bedroom. We parked our car and only used it once when we explored Carmel Valley. Would definitely recommend this Inn to anyone who wants to be close to everything!

Carmel is a charming place to visit and the Wayside Inn was a charming, conveniently located place to stay. The Inn is just a short walk from Carmel's main shopping street, which leads down to the beach. We had a lovely suite which comprised a spacious lounge with fireplace, small kitchen, bathroom and spacious bedroom. Our room was accessed from... More

We have stayed at several of the smaller hotels in Carmel. This one is our favorite. The inn is small and cozy, but the rooms are generous in size. We had a separate living room with a eating area (they deliver breakfast each morning), bedroom and good size bathroom. Location was a block from the main street and walking distance... More

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

Thank you for your review. Our convenient location next to downtown Carmel can sometimes bring noise from the many visitors that come to our area. On most days the shops and restaurants close by 9-10pm, but once in a while there are days when there seem to be more people out and about a little later. One of the exciting... 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.
