Great little B&B, about 6 blocks away from downtown so it was a walk into town. The rooms have updated bathrooms which were very nice. Our room was on the very top floor which was okay, but a bit on the smaller side. Next time we would try to get one of the larger rooms. The sitting area with the...

We spent two nights at the Sea View Inn in August. The ensuite bathroom featured basket weave Carrera marble tile, a rain shower head and lovely toiletries. The room had a king size bed which was very comfortable and a day bed. We had a beautiful view of the back garden from our window. Delicious breakfast and delightful inn keeper!...

This is such a nice quiet spot and seems perfect for couples, however, some of their rooms are large enough for a family of 5. It is about five blocks from downtown Carmel and only a short two blocks from the beach. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and they serve an adequate breakfast with a variety of choices. Plus,...

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get a room here at the last minute during one of the busiest weeks of the year , and they were incredibly accommodating and wonderful. This is a quaint B&B, in the heart of Carmel. Bathroom has been updated recently, the bed was very comfortable, and the room was spacious. They also...

We got a warm welcome straight away from Kenzie and settled into our cute little room under the eaves. Everything was spotlessly clean and our bathroom was newly renovated in a very classy style. The breakfasts had plenty of variety and you could go to the buffet and also get served some things as well. The common areas are nice...

We were treated here as honored guests from the moment we arrived. This family-owned inn (a boarding house during the Depression) has been remodeled to accommodate modern-day guests. Many colorful artistic works by the recently deceased father of the family are tastefully displayed throughout the inn. Behind the building is a quiet, well-tended garden where one can sip a provided...

We LOVE the Sea View Inn. We had a ton of sports gear with us and they made no fuss over us dragging it up to our really nice room. Happy hour was really fun, the location is perfect and the hosts seemed more like friends. We'll be back. OH, and breakfast was delicious!

Greatly enjoyed our two day stay there. Cottagey atmosphere, with great personal service from Tracey. Easy parking outside in a residential area, pretty building, very comfortable room. We had room 2 with a shared bathroom, not a problem as we never encountered anyone else using it. Brand new bathroom as well. Steep narrow stairs to top floor which could be...

We visited the seaview inn whilst we stayed in beautiful Carmel for a couple of days. It's on a back street but easily findable on sat Nav and plenty of parking nearby which is free, which was handy for us. It looks lovely from the outside and is like a little home inside. We stayed in room 4 and 5...

From our room we could only see the sea by looking through the side window and then the view was limited by the trees, To give them their due when I booked I asked if I would be able to see the sea and they said no; we still booked anyway. Our room was nice and spacious with a small...
