“LOVE the charm and romance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2005

This inn is the BEST one you can find in Carmel! It's walking distance to both the ocean and to town. Being a couple blocks off the main street, you get the real Carmel, romantic charm. This 8 room, restored victorian inn has breakfast and a tea time every day with the friendliest of staff. Each room is different and unique and my husband and I find ourselves wanting to stay longer and longer each time we go. Our relationship always seem to be at it's best when we are in such a beautiful and worry-free place. I have kept in contact with a few of the guests that I have met for the environment is so endearing and warm. If you are looking for a romantic, quiet get away, go to the Sea View Inn.

We spent one night in a 3rd floor room. It's a good rate for the 3rd floor rooms...I might stay there again but it could be improved.
The best feature of the inn was you can hear the surf. You can also see the ocean through the trees but only if you're standing up by the window. The decor was okay, but nothing particularly outstanding. The room was very clean. I don't understand why they didn't fix the shutter in the bathroom, rather than post a note to not open the shutter...the note looked old.
The staff were friendly, but for some reason the place just didn't seem "welcoming". It would have felt more like "home" if the living room area wasn't locked off at night. The bed-side chocolates (two) were skimpy...they'd be better not offering any.
There didn't seem to be any night-lights or perhaps we couldn't find the right light switch for the stairs to the 3rd floor...kinda scary late at night.

The Sea View inn is a lovely inn with a warm and friendly staff. We were there over Valentine's Day weekend, and found it to be a very romantic setting. The only caveat is that it's in a coverted Vistorian house, and the walls were very thin. We found ourselves self-conscious while we were in our small but very charming room.
