4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

A very comfortable, clean, well-run & well-maintained establishment. We stayed in room 29, spacious & with fireplace, with a nice glimpse of the pines & ocean from the quaint dining area. The breakfast quietly deposited at our door in the morning is a really pleasant amenity, as is the lobby area with its coffee, tea, and cookies when you just want to sit quietly and read. The central location means you can park your car & stroll to any number of restaurants or down to the beach---very restful! And the staff is very pleasant and obliging. Rates are reasonable, too. You could opt for more posh and fashionable lodgings in Carmel, but why would you want to? This is a home away from home.

Room Tip: I suspect that rooms upstairs might be a little quieter than those on the lower level.

Took a "Chick Trip" with sisters to re-visit Carmel and stay where we stayed with our parents decades ago...Svendsgaards Inn. Inn may be on the older side, but is still very charming and well-maintained. We were astonished at the generous breakfast goodies left outside our door every morning we were there. Also, an easy walk to the center of Carmel Village. Great stay all-around.

Room Tip: View of gardens was great from second level.

We frequently go to the Carmel area. Whenever friends visit us from out-of-state or from another country they generally want to go to Carmel. We always take them to Svendsgaard's Inn where they are made to feel as welcome and comfortable as "frequent guests." The prices, accomodations, service, and location are wonderful.

Room Tip: Charm and location location and location, rooms are all great.

I have stayed at this cute B&B at least ten times and I have never been disappointed. The friendly staff and great location make this a favorite. I have found the cheapest rates are mid-week. Don't hesitate to ask to see the different rooms they have available. The price varies widely and you will find that some rooms have more to off then others. Decor not fancy but rooms being updated. Always clean. Short walk into many nice restaurants and shops.

We always feel welcome here. Great room with jacuzzi and fireplace. Close to everything. Easy stroll to town...no driving needed. Breakfast is delivered with the paper everyday. Cookies and coffee is always on. Pleasant pool. Great grassy area for the dogs. Quiet and peaceful.

This is a great Inn. Has everything you could want, homey, comfortable and in a great location. You can walk to just about everything, yet it's in a quiet location. The two men working in the office couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. Lovely courtyard. Breakfast dropped outside the door was enough for two breakfasts. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
