We are returning guests at the Inn, and quality of service is excellent. Friendly staff, great breakfast, immaculate rooms, lots of extras provided, and we always meet interesting guests. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floor have ocean view. Room 3, downstairs, large and quiet.

Stayed with my parents who were over from the UK. We all loved it. Charming place, friendly staff and close to the beach. Be warned - if you have a guest that doesn't do stairs, make sure to request a downstairs room. $6 taxi to get to Ocean Avenue.

Charming place to stay. A block off of the beach. Great staff. Breakfast is good. Nice fire pit outside. Enjoyed our stay. Would go back again. It is a nice walk or short drive to all of the restaurants and shopping.

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Sandpiper. Our first time visit to the Inn turned out to be great for us. Cozy and quaint in every way, the Sandpiper is a perfect jumping-off point for exploring Carmel. Located in a beautiful little area, we had the feel of belonging amongst the other strollers as we checked out the neighborhood and oceanfront areas. The path to the beach and view of the bay feels private too. It's located close enough to Ocean Street that you can easily get to the shops and restaurants, as well as the entrance to the 17 Mile Drive, which was beautiful. We experienced some rain during our trip, so it was always nice to return to the Sandpiper's lobby and the nice fireplace. Loved the morning quiche, fresh fruit and coffee. Thank you, Sandpiper...We will be back.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our view of the Bay from upstairs in the main building (room 6), and could hear the surf with our window open. Very nice at night...

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were allocated a room to the rear of the Inn. We had no view but the interior was very nice and comfortable especially the bed. On our first morning for breakfast we had fruit, quiche and a fruit croissant. On the second we only had the fruit and quiche. The lady serving breakfast was more engrossed in speaking to 2 other members of staff to offer us anything else. Overall we found the staff impersonal although pleasant when spoken to. I found that I had to engage them in conversation as to them instigating this. We are involved in Tourism ourselves so feel we are in a position to comment. This is a lovely Inn in a great location. Carmel is fantastic and we would love to visit again. We would stay at the Sandpiper again if the staff were a bit more engaging.
