I have been visiting Carmel for over 40 years and this is the best place I have stayed for the price. The location is ideal for walking around town.

Really great location and a fabulous room, very spacious and relaxing. Breakfast served to the room was a nice treat! Staff very friendly and provided us with a bottle of prosecco for our honeymoon which was a perfect treat! Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!

We were only able to visit for one night but found the suite incredibly comfortable. The bed was amazing and the breakfast in bed was simple but lovely. The room was a bit dated feeling and musty but otherwise very clean. We stayed in a higher rated place in Carmel and thought this was a better bet in the end.... More

The hotel was clean and well appointed. The staff were courteous and helpful. Breakfast was included and was generous and tasty. The only negatives were the lack of adequate parking. We had to park on the street and move the car early the next day dueto parking restrictions. And it was noisy. We we awoken each day by the people... More

The service was wonderful and the location perfect for exploring Carmel. The Rooms We had a comfortable living room and a kitchenette . The kitchen has been... More

Rooms have been recently remodeled. Breakfast is very good. Lots of choices. Hotel location is ideal. One block off Ocean Blvd. You can walk down Ocean to beach or easily walk to just about any location in town.

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
