Excellent location in a quiet area, just a few minutes away from the main strip, 10 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk the closest park (if you are traveling with a dog). I think I found my go to hotel in Carmel!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here on recommendation from friends. The service and attentiveness of the staff has been great. Location is great-easy to get downtown and to the beach. Quiet, relaxing, clean. Dog friendly and we had parking waiting for us without a hassle. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast brought to our room each morning. Would definitely come again and recommend to others.

Lovely king room with fireplace & ocean view. Quiet location and convenient parking. Arrived a bit early and were pleasantly surprised to have our request for early check-in accommodated. The hotel has all the amenities and a nice breakfast delivered on time as requested. Very responsive office staff & maintenance staff. Will definitely return! Thank you.

Very Good service and excellent amenities! We are definitely going back here. I recommend the poet room if you have kids. It’s worth the price per night! My kids enjoyed their own room and we have some private time for me and my husband.

It was a lovely stay. Rooms were clean, comfortable. Breakfast basket prepared and delivered every morning was a huge plus, prepared with care, all the details considered. Team did a great job from check-in to check out to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Team has been very responsive to our questions. Any question we had answered in second. Kudos to the team for excellent service. Location is perfect walking distance to ocean and restaurants.

We just had a great stay at Tradewinds. I was a little worried from the photos the place would be a bit cheesy but it was absolutely not. The zen vibe was done really well. Lots of water fountain and fire throughout. The hotel is very close to Ocean Ave. where the shopping is. Plenty of free parking all around the hotel and on the property. I would stay here again.

The number one thing I look for in a hotel is cleanliness. Tradewinds did not disappoint. We loved the decor, very comfortable bed and convenient location to all there is to see in downtown Carmel. We enjoyed having a balcony and listening to the beach birds each morning.
