We stayed at the Wayside Inn for two nights on our way from San Francisco to LA, after reading some great Trip Advisor reviews for the place, and the reviews were totally justified. It is a really nice place to stay in probably our favourite town of our California Holiday. On arrival, housekeeping were still finishing our room so we... More

We have tried numerous small hotels that are everywhere in Carmel and this one was very nice. Our room was quite large with a separate bedroom and a fireplace in the living area. The bathroom connected the two which was a little strange but given the age of Carmel hotels it was typical there. The room was easy to spend... More

Every aspect of our stay was perfect. We especially enjoyed having breakfast brought to our room every morning. The location, while on a quiet street, was a very easy walking distance to shopping and dining. We felt this was a perfect location to stay to explore both Carmel and Monterey.

Except the bed...it's kinda too soft to sleep, I have really bad dream...but everything expect that was really good! Rooms are amazing, breakfast were impressive, staffs are friendly, it's a little pricey but in a nice town like Carmel I think it's reasonable.
