My wife and I have visited Carmel on numerous occasions and stayed in a number of different lodging establishments. The Tradewinds is the best by far. The setting is in a quiet residential neighborhood close to the shops and dining with free on site parking. The rooms were

Hotel's Favorite
A charming pleasant oasis enveloped in bamboo...trickling waterfalls and a meditative Buddha. Peaceful, quiet, calm. Four or five blocks away from the bustle of Ocean Av. but easy walking distance to all nearby restaurants.

Booked this place last minute after reading the outstanding reviews online. It did not disappoint! Welcomed with chocolate covered strawberries and a beautiful room. Great location and a short walk to the main streets. Would stay again.

The rooms and beds were comfortable and well maintained and stocked. Nice continental breakfast. Friendly staff and good location. Our room didn’t have a/c but with the cool weather there it wasn’t a big problem.

Definitely off site. The courtyard is landscaped with lots of water features & maybe 1-2 sitting areas but no grassy spots.

How far are you from the beach?
So sorry for the delay in our response. We are 1-mile from the Carmel Beach. It is downhill to the beach, but uphill on the way back. Many of our guests like the walk, as you can walk through the heart of the village of Carmel on the way. If walking is not for you, there is ample public parking at the beach. Let us know if you have any further questions or call us to reserve your stay. Warm regards, Maureen Doran General Manager

Walking distance to the beach implies easy access. Yes, if you are in good shape, you can walk to the beach in 1/2 hour... It would be a true hike uphill back to the hotel. Kitchen??? No absolutely not.

Hello, I have a lovely suite that might be just perfect for your clients. All of our rooms come with an elaborate continental breakfast buffet, free parking and free WiFi. Our location is on a quiet residential corner just three blocks from the main street of town. Our Serenity Suite has a bedroom with a King bed, fireplace, television, and private balcony. The living room has a new temperpedic pull -out sleeper sofa, a second television, wet bar, private balcony and half bath. The master bath has a separate shower, spa-jetted tub and dressing area. The view is of Carmel Bay, and Point Lobos. A perfect location for viewing the sunsets. Is this something that would work for you?

We stayed there last November and I did notice a couple with a dog. One of them came into the breakfast room to get food and went back outside to eat breakfast with her husband and dog. So I presume the dog was allowed in the room but not in the eating area. A quick call to them might yield a clearer answer to your question........

"book early for rooms with best views"
"Room 7 was great with a partial sea view. Room was quiet."
"Stay somewhere else."
"The rooms with ocean views are also closer to the noisy garbage pickup in early mornings"
"rooms 7, 8 and 9 are the best."
