The rooms were very quaint and clean. I was impressed with the staff. They were nice and helpful, especially Carol who was able to recommend great restaurants and local attractions. I definitely plan to return.

Although we had planned to bring our dog, but did not at the last minute, we were still placed in a "pet friendly" room. Not bad at all actually - a second floor, darling studio-like with kitchen, large bathroom and a separate bedroom area. We thought we'd surely consider staying there again until we had our 'continental breakfast'. Sliced apples and cold muffins....? Give me strength. We ended up having a warm and delicious breakfast down the street.

We had a wonderful stay at the Briarwood; lovely room and cozy lobby and manicured grounds! Carol the front desk manager was exceptional. She got us a reservation at Giavonni restaurant which we walked to (2 blocks). Carol also helped us find places, whale watching trip etc. and was so accommodating! We will go back for sure! Lovely place, nice and courteous staff.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back and upstairs have lovely vistas and are less noisy from street. Not a busy street...

This B&B is like a dream. The location right in the middle of Carmel is perfect, you don't need a car to go for a dinner or go to the beach. The room was lovely and really clean. Thanks for the great service of a really nice team. We will stay there again and I hope in the near future.

I had very nice experience staying a cute cottage. The room was very cozy, quiet and clean. There were kitchen, full size refrigerator, separate bedroom with King size bed and two twin beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great. I never experience a cottage in Carmel by the sea and it was much better than hotel room. I wish we could stay longer.

This B&B is well located in the center of Carmel and has on-site parking. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the room was quite cramped. Be sure to inquire about the size of the room when booking. The breakfast was cold - muffins, cereal, fruit, and coffee/tea.

This B&B was very walkable to dining and shops in Carmel. Its a quaint and laid back area. The room was very spacious! The fireplace is soothing and creates a relaxing atmosphere. St. Anne has a jacuzzi tub that is the best we've experienced! There is a strange nook where the closet and fridge are, but oh well. All in all, a very delightful time at Briarwood.
