We always stay at the Wayside. The service is impeccable, the location superb, and it's very nice to be able to leave the car parked, and walk about town. Close to Katies for breakfast, one block off Ocean. Freshly baked cookies and coffee in the lobby is a welcome sight when you check in. Breakfasts are a wonderful touch. Staff... More

I arrived in Carmel without a reservation and happened upon the Wayside Inn. It was so quaint. The front desk staff person was so friendly and helpful. I room was very nice with a fireplace. Loved the location within walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach. The breakfast basket was awesome! Would definitely stay again if they accepted small pets.

We stayed a couple of nights here, arriving after a long drive from Yosemite. We found the staff all very friendly and we were given an upstairs room with a balcony, two beds, nice bathroom and a fridge. Exactly what we needed. The best part was the location, it is right where you want to be in Carmel, next to... More

We arrived in Carmel after traveling from Vancouver via San Francisco. We we to be at a wedding at 2:00 PM and arrived at the hotel at 12:30. The disinterested staff member behind the counter said no rooms would be ready until 3. She uttered something about a guarantee. When I said we needed an alternative because we had to... More

First, we want to thank this guest for taking the time to share their experience, which allows us an opportunity to improve our service. It was very disappointing to learn of this guest’s frustration and poor impression of our staff. It is our goal to provide a high level of service, and there was a failure on our part to... More

nice little inn with a great location. They have spacious rooms and reasonably updated bathrooms, etc. The only real drawback is the sqeaky old floors that make al ot of noise as the neighbors upstairs walk around.. all night on occasion. That could be a big issue for some visitors who may have to specify an upstairs unit to ensure... More

In the heart of Carmel, steps away from best restaurants and shops. Clean, quiet and comfortable, with free parking. I would definitely stay there again. The studio has a small kitchen, with a fridge. Complimentary Wi-Fi.

We unexpectedly stopped at Carmel and had no place to stay. We called all around and found a suite at this very nice place, which is centrally located in the heart of Carmel. It has kind of a motel set up and the room we had, which was ground floor, picked up noise from people in the room above us... More

The only really great thing about Wayside Inn in Carmel is that it is very centrally located in the heart of Carmel and close too all the great shops and restaurants. The beds are very comfortable but if you plan on sleeping in and getting rest, think again about staying here. Walls are paper thin. The older structure is quant... More
