We were lucky enough to spend one night here recently, and unlucky enough that it was only one night! The setting was perfect, the establishment something special. Our room overlooked the ocean, upstairs, though I'm sure you could not go wrong with any choice of room. Rooms were tastefully appointed and spotlessly clean. Afternoon tea on arrival was a welcome...

My wife and I have been coming to the Sandpiper Inn for the last six years. We love it. It is always beautiful, warm, and cozy. Each room has a distinct feel. The bed and breakfast is just steps away from the beach, very central but tucked away from the crowd. The breakfast quiches and croissants are delicious. It is...

I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Carmel. Reservations went smoothly, and when I had to move our check-in date by a day, the staff quickly changed my reservations, without a hitch. My husband and I arrived at the inn and we were given a quick tour of the place. We stayed at Room 15, one...

I love this beautiful little b&b!! We just stayed a second time, and I can't say enough about how beautifully restored and renovated it is. Cozy, warm rooms with extremely comfortable beds and private bathrooms. Crackling fireplaces and comfortable furniture in the common areas, lovely continental breakfast, and tea and cookies in the afternoon. Friendly, caring staff. Dynamite location just...

My husband and I first enjoyed stays at the Sandpiper and its wonderful proximity to the beach and charming neighborhood of homes a few times over a decade ago and stayed at other properties nearby for subsequent visits in more recent years. We decided to revisit the place for a last-minute stay this past summer. We didn't realize there was...

Felt like home from home. Enormous bedroom and bed in quite lane just off the beach. Location wise was great and we walked into the small town day and night for shopping and dinner. I got the impression everyone else took a cab! It is no more than a 15 minute walk. Arrival was a little tricky as we got...

My wife and I had a wonderful 3-night stay at the Sandpiper Inn in Carmel over the 4th of July 2013. The inn is located in a residential neighborhood about 3/4 mile from the town center. That was good because we walked it every day and it was good exercise for us. The inn itself is very nice inside. Our...

We stayed at this nice Inn only one night. We were in room number 12, a large room with ocean view. The owners renovated the Inn 2 years ago. The room is large with lots of light and a sitting area. The web site presents pictures of all the rooms. The renovated bathroom is a good size. There is also...

We enjoyed the Sandpiper's proximity to the beach, the town, and the Mission at Carmel. The inn keeper suggested a local restaurant that doesn't cater tot eh tourist crowd as much as to the locals, and it was excellent. breakfast was good and well prepared, if not a whole lot of variety. the room was clean and comfortable.

Great location in a very quiet neighborhood.. Short walk to the ocean and short drive into town. We stayed in room #12.Very spacious with king size bed. Breakfast was delicious with a varied selection, Maria was very friendly. Our whole experience was wonderful. Would definitely go back.

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
