Location was wonderful and the service really nice but It was too much of an upscale motel. Of course, prices in Carmel are incredibly high so this hotel is a good option and it was well kept but I still found it strange that my room had windows to the corridor where people walked. Looked like a well kept motel.... More

We appreciate your comments. The area near the beach is residential, so the hotels in town that offer ocean views are all 6-8 blocks up from the ocean. We have four Queen Rooms in a row which share a common entrance corridor, however, many of our King Rooms offer private balconies with views. More

A very nice spot a few blocks off the main drag in Carmel. The rooms are appointed nicely and were very comfortable. Beautiful courtyard area with fountains and fire pit. The staff was warm and accommodating. We'd definitely stay again.

Five-star for sure. Serene and peaceful surroundings. Japanese inspired decor; my personal favorite. Every accoutrement you need. Rooms are quiet with gas-lit fireplace, jacuzzi tub and all the amenities. Lovely breakfast included. Beach and shopping are easy walks. Beautiful-you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful location as you can walk to any destination in town. Nice room with great bedding. Great and courteous staff. While this is an expensive week to visit Carmel, its a pleasure to stay here. Ample parking. Nice continental breakfast with fresh fruit, good coffee and bakery goods.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times over some 15 years and it is still my first choice in this favourite little corner of California with its unbeatable sunsets. There are more swanky and more central hotels but everywhere in Carmel is walkable and the great advantage of Tradewinds is that it is off the main tourist streets and therefore... More

Great location and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The suite was perfect for our family of 3, King and King sleeper. We will certainly return. The facility is dog friendly which is nice as I am a pet owner.

The room was spacious and comfortable with large beds. The staff were very friendly and eager to help and the hotel was situated a short distance from the beach. They offered a free continental breakfast and a patio area to sit with a fire in the evenings

The Tradewinds was ideal for our group of four. Nice sized, clean rooms with two queens with a really nice breakfast buffet. Even better - for folks a week into a two week trip - the hotel is right around the corner from a laundromat. For those with energy, the hotel is within easy walking distance to restaurants downtown -... More

Such tranquility in a busy area. Our family of 11 spent one night with four rooms while traveling the PCH from Anaheim to San Francisco. The staff was so very helpful, and the surrounding were beyond expectation. Could have spent more time just relaxing in the gardens. Would definitely go back. Within walking distance to the center of Carmel, and... More
