What a lovely hotel. We hadn't realised it is in the Johansens guide until we arrived. Beautiful rooms and very tranquil. We stopped at Carmel for 2 nights. They recommended a restaurant called Grasing's which was superb. Lots of smart shops and an attractive beach. Carmel was a bit colder than we were expecting and the Pacific Coast Highway down...

Thank you for your kind review..."beautiful rooms and very tranquil" is our goal. And, yes, we have been chosen as a Conde Nast Johansen's property, which only includes special places in their guides. Warm Regards to you and safe travels!

We had booked for only one night at this hotel but loved Carmel so much we stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the Main Street. We booked a very comfortable deluxe room. Breakfast was included and was a cold buffet and very adequate. Very quiet location and charming staff.

Thank you to our guests from the United Kingdom! We are so happy that you enjoyed Carmel and Tradewinds Carmel that you stayed an extra night! There is so much to do here from the Monterey Bay Aquarium to Big Sur to Point Lobos to all of the wineries to Carmel Mission to Pebble Beach...I could go on and on....

We stayed two nights at Tradewinds, and could not have been happier. It's a wonderful bed and breakfast, with a very friendly and helpful staff. Location is also terrific, just a couple blocks from downtown.

From the photos this place looks quite upmarket. You would also expect this from the prices they charge. Even allowing for the location and town, this place is way over priced. The furniture is chipped and tapestries are tired. "A converted motel" has been quoted and that's what is is. Noise does transfer from other rooms so the owners upgrade...

Efficient and helpful staff. Spacious and clean rooms. Charming in-room electrical fireplace. Very comfortable bed. Walking distance from the main street, but a longer walk to the beach (better go by car/bicycle). Complimentary wi-fi and parking lot. We expected a little more form the breakfast, but it was not bellow average.

Tradewinds is a beautiful, cozy boutique hotel a few blocks from the main street that runs through town. My friend and I stayed in the Poet's Suite, which featured balconies, a jet/jacuzzi tub, one and a half bathrooms, a sitting area with a couch that converts to a bed, and a master bedroom with a giant, sumptuous bed covered with...

Wow! What an incredible review! You described the Poets Suite so well that we wish that you worked here! Thank you so so much! We love our suites since they are so private and look out over the courtyard with the fire pit, stream and Meditation Garden, and parking is so convenient but you don't see it from the suites....

We stayed here for two nights because we had heard great things about Carmel and wanted to stay in the village part. The hotel is perfectly fine - nice room, good (included in the cost) cold breakfast. However the location isn't really central, so it was about a ten minute walk to get anywhere worth going and an even longer...

Hello and Thank you for your review-happy that you enjoyed the room, breakfast, Free WiFI, and chocolate covered strawberries! We are 3 blocks from the main street of Carmel on a nice quiet residential street. I am sorry that you would have preferred to be closer to the main street but then you risk having noise from the traffic and...

It's nice but probably won't stay here again. First the room...nothing special about the room, balcony overlooking someone's roof, no aircon in the room. Also it's supposed to be pet friendly but they don't offer any goodies (dog biscuit, water bowl, etc.) for dogs. No place to walk dogs other than in the residential area.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. They greeted us with a flower and showed us around the little relaxation garden they have- it has water features and seating areas.

Thank you for your kind review! We do our best to minimize any noise from other guests. Luckily, we are on a quiet residential street so our guests don't have street noise to worry about like on the main and other busy streets of Carmel. I love that you found the room "comphy" and "lovely". Thank you and we hope...
