We loved the coffee maker in the room! It was an upgrade than any in-room coffee maker I've ever seen. Very nice touch! The continental breakfast door service was just wonderful! i wasn't sure exactly what time to expect it and it was such a nice surprise opening the door and seeing the cooler waiting for us. When we checked... More

Our family spent three nights at the Wayside Inn, and absolutely loved our time there! We even extended our stay an extra night - we really enjoyed ourselves. The suite was perfect for us - we have a 3 yr old and a 7 month old, and there was enough space for all of us. The layout of the suite... More

We had a great time. We have stayed in a lot of places in Carmel and this is our new favorite! We will definitely be back. Love the hot cookies in the lobby. Great touch!

Very clean, great location, wonderful bed. I was a little skeptical after reading some reviews of some unhappy customers of the Wayside but we were nothing but pleased with the inn. The breakfast wasn't wonderful and perhaps a voucher for breakfast somewhere else would be a nice idea but overall, we were happy. Yes, the room was pricey but it's... More

Fifty years ago, my husband and I began our married life together in Carmel. To honor these wonderful years of marriage, our family paid for our stay at the Wayside Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the first moment we stepped into the friendly office. The clerk even took pictures of us with my camera! It was fun!!! They... More

We stayed at the Wayside Inn while in town attending the MotoGP. The room had a French country feel and was quite cozy with a fire place and patio. I did feel the room description was a little misleading though. They described the premium king suite as having a living room with separate bedroom. It was really just one big... More

We made our reservation on the way to Carmel. The hotel website looked good so we reserved. We arrived late and stayed in a king size bedded room which looked onto the parking lot and another window looked into a stairwell. No deck or patio. Would be fine if you didnt want to spend much time in the room. Wondered... More

We got there early around 1 and found out the room was ready AND they let us check in early - that never happens. Good location right off 8th ave, Only cons were that the walls were very thin and we heard every... More

My wife and I stayed here on our trip from LA to San Fran. Fantastic location with great rooms. Breakfast was nothing to write home about but this is just a small detail.
