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

We stayed as a family of 4 for two nights. The rooms don't look much from outside but are beautiful inside. Beds were very comfortable and room well furnished and spacious. Coffee making facilities, free wifi and a fab fire if you get chilly. We had some noise from the people upstairs but this was just them moving about. Breakfast... 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

It seems that in Carmel most of the hotels are inns. In Canada we would call these motels. In saying that these can be very charming. The Wayside Inn was lovely and clean. 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

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

Downtown Carmel certainly has an amazing selection of spots to enjoy and it sounds like you had the opportunity to make the most... 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
