“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

My girlfriend and I had an upstairs room with two queen beds. The decor was charming and the room was clean and very roomy. The bathroom was perfect for two people, with two sinks and counters. We had a nice little refrigerator, too. The inn is in a great location with easy access to all the shops and restaurants but still quiet. The landscaping is just gorgeous with all the flowers! Also, Sam at the front desk was extremely helpful and accommodating. We'll be back for sure!

We took a last minute trip to Carmel and knew it would be difficult to find a room for just one night on a weekend (most hotels there have a two-night policy). We decided to take our chances and ended up at the Wayside Inn. What a pleasant surprise! Our room was newly renovated -- very tastefully decorated and absolutely comfortable. Good continental breakfast waiting at our doorstep in the morning in a little cooler. Great location one block off Ocean Avenue makes walking around town a breeze.

Room Tip: Suites with small kitchen are roomy and would be great for a longer stay.

This inn is really right in town, on the corner, but still very quiet. Walk to Ocean Ave in minutes, run home, walk again! Rooms are nice, needs a bit updating (showerheads, rough corners) but overall good condition. Very friendly receptionist! They bring your breakfast order to your door which is nice, free internet, mini Keurig cofee maker in your bathroom. :-) Good parking right in front of your room. Lots of wonderful flowers make the outside lovely. :-)

We had a very nice stay for 3 days here. Comfortable bedding, clean and roomy. The little porch on the 2nd floor in room 18 was really nice for a bottle of wine and some appetizers we had picked up at the local grocery store. We had the afternoon sun so it felt nice on those 60 degree days. The breakfast they delivered each morning was perfect; not too heavy and enough to get you through an active morning of hiking or whatever our plans had for that day.

My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel in January. We were on a road trip around California, and this was our first stop out of San Francisco. We had visited Carmel many years before.
The room was well appointed, had a separate lounge area with gas fire, TV and tea/Coffee making facilities.
The Bathroom was well equipped and modern.
The Bedroom was very comfortable, the only disappointment was that there were only views of walls from the two windows, however as we only were there at night that really didn't worry us!
The manager and staff were most helpful.
It is located right in the centre of town so we could wander around the shops, to the beach and the many restaurants.
The breakfast was delivered outside our door both mornings, fresh and tasty.
All in all a comfortable and pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the ground floor and ask about the view from the windows, it is either the small ca...

We had a large room at the Wayside inn with 2 queen beds in one room and a king in the other. The room was decorated in blue and white French toile fabrics. We had 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. Kids loved the cookies freshly baked each afternoon. Breakfast basket was very simple- OJ carton, piece of fruit, cereal and a scone or bagel.Easy walk to shops and restaurants and about 15 minutes to the beach. Make sure you eat at Dametra Cafe.
