We were pleasantly surprised to find the Sea View Inn a perfect place to stay while in Carmel. It is tastefully decorated and within walking distance to the beach and to the Pebble Beach Golf Course. The only reason I gave it four out of five stars is because the breakfast is served so very late (9:00 AM). Perhaps most people are more relaxed while in Carmel, but my husband and I are early risers. It would have been nice to have an 8:00 seating as well.
