We took our 2 1/2 year old grandson on a mini-vacation to visit family, and stayed in the best room ever! We had a balcony, our own bedroom, kitchenette, living/dining room and TWO full bathrooms - and we're not talking about tiny rooms here. The Wayside staff provided a portable crib so we didn't have to pack yet another thing... More

I recently did a girls weekend here and it was great! The location is awesome as its so close to shops and restaurants. Before we checked in, they upgraded us to a suite since it was open! It had a living room with a kitchenette. The only thing that was a little weird was that to get to the bedroom,... More

The hotel has a stated 7 day in advance cancellation policy. However the night before we were due to arrive, my partner was rushed from our previous hotel into hospital at San Jose, CA. I emailed The Wayside Inn immediately to advise what had happened. Subsequently the Wayside Inn Manager emailed me to explain that $213 would be retained as... More

Although we empathize with whatever situation prevented the reserved guest from honoring their reservation with us, we don't feel this forum should be used as a tool for revenge because the reserved guest's deposit was non-refundable. To be clear, this review is not based on our property (neither the guest nor the reviewer stayed at our property), but rather is... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Wayside Inn. The Inn has good points and bad points. As for the good, the location is great, easy to find, onsite parking (a little tight but not bad), the price not bad for a kingbed room, a simple breakfast delivered to the room each day with a newspaper, and beautiful...

We recently returned from a trip to Carmel. After searching on Tripadvisor, we selected the Wayside Inn because of the comments and also because it seemed to be kid friendly. The trip was perfect. Carmel is such a great little town and the Wayside Inn is in a perfect location for walking to all the shops and restaurants. And, unlike... More

We have stayed with other hotels in the Inn By The Sea hotels, but we really liked staying at this location. It was so close to the shops and restaurants, just minutes from your door. The hotel had all the amenities. The room was exceptionally spacious and comfortable, and had plenty of room for our son to roam around and... More

Entering the suite at the Wayside Inn, I was thinking I was back in Provence -- the French decor eluded to this. The two rooms were large with that certain element of elegance which suited me to the T. Since we were three women traveling together we each had our own beds and 2 spacious bathroom. The kitchenette was where... More

We found the Wayside Inn during a previoius trip to Carmel, and are sure glad we did. We were taken by the friendly and outgoing staff, as they were very attentive in showing us around the property. It's not a large inn, about 20 rooms I think, but they have a few different room decors and a variety of rooms... More

Way overpriced for what you get - an upgraded motel. Bed was good, everything else so-s0. Breakfast is completely inadequate.
