Me, my mother and my son did a road trip around California and needed somewhere to stay in Carmel. I looked at many sites but kept coming back to The Wayside Inn. It was a little bit above our price range but worth every penny. There was a huge book/folder in reception with ideas of things to do, places to... More

We had no idea the charm the warmth the location the room delivered breakfast would be a part of this short one night stay. We liked the Inn so much we are now considering it as a destination vacation, rather than a one night stay driving all the way up the CA coast. Convenient to good food, great shopping and... More

After 18 years of coming to Carmel, we have finally found the best place to stay! Five years ago we found this gem and will never stay at any other hotel! So spacious, clean, comfortable beds and close to everything in Carmel.

The inn is very attractive inside and out. The rooms are clean, spacious, and very comfortable. The breakfast is very good--delivered to your door at a time of your choosing. The service is excellent--at the front desk, the breakfast delivery, the management. The location is very convenient, right at the top of downtown Carmel. You cannot go wrong here.

We recently enjoyed a driving adventure on the PCH from LA to San Francisco. We stayed 2 nights at the Wayside Inn and absolutely loved it! The room was huge and beautiful! Breakfast is selected off of a menu the evening before and then delivered in the morning to your room. Wonderful freshly baked goods, quiche, fruit, juice and coffee/tea.... More

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

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.
