Very quaint, clean and lovely historic home with charming bedrooms and bathrooms. Location is spectacular, right across street from ocean. Pleasant longer walk to Downtown Carmel. Nice breakfast included. Definitely recommended over many other places we have stayed there.

The Sandpiper is close to the beach but for dinner in town we drove. The room was comfortable and had an ocean view which was 1 block away. The breakfast was ok and not made at the inn. The staff did leave something in the refrigerator for our early departure. The staff was friendly.

Well located not far from the beach (but a little walk -30min to the city center), the place was great with an outside fireplace, common room with an indoor fireplace, breakfast is homemade quiche and fruits and juice. Staff is very helpful. However, please not there are no TV in the room, the only TV is in the common room.... More

Carmel is one of the pearls of Cali, and is was a great pleasure to make a stop-over in such a nice hotel. It actually looks better in reality than on those pictures you might get online. Location is close to the ocean, the hotel itself is super-cozy with attentive staff, cute design, delicious breakfast and ambiance. Will definitely get... More

The Sandpiper was a great choice- cool and quaint; wonderful, friendly staff, very nice breakfast. Quiet, beautiful location - very close to our friends home which was the location for a 70th surprise birthday party. We found the front desk staff to be extremely accommodating. The hostess for the breakfast was charming and efficient. Our room( #1) was spacious, quiet... More

This inn is so lovely. Looking at the pictures, we thought it might be a little bit cheesy but it’s absolutely not ! There is a very easy access to the beach from the inn if you want to, only 5 minutes walking distance. The bed was more than comfortable and this is where we had our best night sleep... More

We have been staying with them for over 25 years and the level of service remains superior. Linda and Maria , both of whom have been there for over 30 years, continue to meet your every need. The rooms, food, and people you meet all make this the best place to stay in Carmel as far as we are concerned.

The staff is friendly and Maria (the cook in the morning) is WONDERFUL!! We would definitely return. The location is close to the water. The setting is beautiful. The fire pit is GREAT. The breakfast in the morning is really good. Lots of berries, quiche (ham and cheese or vegetarian), croissants, cereal, yogurt with granola. Coffee and OJ. There are... More

Good location one road back from the sea and within a 20 minute walk of Carmel centre. We had room 5 which has a sea view and a really comfy bed. We could lie in bed and hear the waves on the sea shore. Breakfast was very good with lovely fresh raspberries, blackberries and a choice of quiches and pastries.... More

Great location, a block from the beach. Quiet neighborhood with street & limited driveway parking. Quaint facilities, old world charm. Small rooms without tv, tea & biscuits in the afternoon in front of the fireplace. A patio with tables out front on warmer days.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like being a house guest in someone's exclusive seaside home. This early California country style inn, established in 1929, boasts of ocean views and the sounds of the surf crashing on the soft sand of Carmel Beach. Enjoy the serene comfort in one of our cozy rooms, by the fire in our fireside lounge, or outside on one of our garden patios. The Sandpiper Inn is the perfect getaway for the romantic couple or for those that just want to get away from the daily grind and relax. ... more   less
