We were upgraded to a suite and it was great. Very nice rooms, well maintained and served a breakfast each morning based on our choice and time. Very nice and well maintained courtyard. Located in a quite neighborhood and off street parking. Would highly recommend to friends and others.

My husband & I bring our dog & go to Carmel annually for our anniversary. This year we found Tradewinds & WOW! What a stupendous spot! It’s like being in a zen center. Calm, quiet, peaceful. Our room was large, comfortable & had a deck to watch the sunset. The sheets were soft & sublime! Breakfast was an interesting selection - I chose the french baguette w/brie, which I loved. The staff are professional and friendly. I think the quiet location is a major plus. We will definitely come back!

Our room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. The staff was courteous and helpful. It was a very pleasant stay. The only minor drawback was that the breakfast was a continental breakfast. However, there were choices, it was filling and was brought to the room.

Upon check in we were offered chocolate chip cookies. 🍪 The room had everything we needed, with exception of AC but didn’t really need it in April. They did supply a fan which was very helpful to move the air. Breakfast was included which is delivered to your door in a little basket, very nice touch. For us the beds were a little soft, but this is a personal preference. The property is a very Zen space with Buddha’s, lots of bamboo and greenery. It is quite beautiful. Would definitely stay again.

This is a Great Hotel. I highly reccomend it. The room was beautiful and the grounds were very pretty and calming. The Staff was very helpful and friendly. It is close to everything, although it is a little bit of an uphill climb after a glass(es) of wine. This was our first time there and we Loved our stay there! We look forward to going back.

We had an excellent stay at Tradewinds and definitely would go back. Here is a short list of everything we liked: 1. Parking. We had no issues finding parking in their lots or on street right by hotel. 2. Short walk to downtown Carmel and all the shops/eateries. 3. Rooms were clean. Loved the beds and the sheets. 4. The grounds of the hotel were clean and relaxing. Several water features throughout. 5. Every morning breakfast was delivered to the room. Can choose breakfast the day before. This was our first trip to Carmel and would definitely go back to the Tradewinds. The front desk was very helpful and pleasant to speak to. It was perfect for what we were looking for.

Very quaint property, walkable distance to the beach, dog friendly and with a free electric charger for cars. Service was prompt and efficient. We stayed in a partial ocean view room with fire place and balcony. It was very well appointed. Breakfast was simple but good.

We booked a weekend getaway from Denver very last minute and had never visited Carmel before. My husband and I were extremely pleased with our choice which was based on traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Staff were pleasant and responsive. Our fireplace pilot went out twice due to the windy weather but boy they were on it! Texted and it took 5 mins for someone to arrive. The light breakfast delivered to our room was perfect for us. Enjoyed the location which was walkable to everything including the Sunset Center where we attended a concert. We will return to Carmel and will definitely stay at Tradewinds!

We are on a three week road trip from Northern Washington to Southern California. In researching a place to stay in Carmel, Tradewinds was fairly highly rated. Knowing there were lots of options, we took a chance and were not disappointed. Perfectly located just a block or two out of the busyness of Carmel, Tradewinds is its own little enclave. We chose a suite to have more room for four days and the extra space is luxurious and worth the expense. Christine could not have been more welcoming. Tradewinds is peaceful, quiet, and very comfortable. And the view from our upper floor is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!
