This hotel was very nice, the location is right by everything in Carmel by the Sea. The beds were fantastic!! I would stay here again and again.

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.

We stayed 2 nights in the lovely, clean and comfortable Wayside Inn. Our room was one of the best we had during our whole California trip. Right in the centre of Carmel and good walking distance to all restaurants and beach. Breakfast delivered to your room is a nice touch. Room had all the facilities we needed including iron, fridge...

My special lady and I booked a premium suite, complete with a king bed, separate living room with tv and sofa, gas fireplace, patio, little kitchen with sink, mini fridge and microwave, bathroom with shower/tub and most importantly, the 2-person jacuzzi tub. If you can, spring for the jacuzzi tub. It made the night just perfect ;) The room was... More

We live in the bay area and wanted a quick get-a-away prior to the arrival of our next child. The Wayside Inn provided just what we needed - a comfortable place to stay near the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This trip was a one night stay, with a day at the Aquarium. Our family felt comfortable in the hotel and loved... More

My family and I stayed at the Wayside and couldn't have been happier. We had a family suite, which had two large bedrooms, two large bathrooms and a kitchen. The Inn is located on a quiet corner, and is a quick and easy walk to all the shops and restaurants. Each morning baked goods, yogurt, oj and milk were delivered... More

Nice older Hotel (like alot in Carmel), but recently renovated rooms, so it was clean. Our room had a separate living room when you walked in, then a bathroom & bedroom. Everything worked fine. Furniture was a little dated, & was a little musty smelling when we first walked in, but we opened windows & all was fine after that.... More
