We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It's centrally located, and just 2 blocks from the main strip. Our room was spotless and very quiet with a view. The management was very efficient, helpful and let us check in a little early. There are cookies, fruit and juice in the lobby throughout the day and breakfast is delivered to your door in the morning in a cooler pack so you don't have to wake up early. Your room key also gets you 10-15% discounts at restaurants around town. Our only complaint was that the breakfast used many disposable containers instead of reusable ones. The wi-fi was good overall. I would stay there again without a doubt!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are very spacious. Go to the information center 2 blocks away find out about disco...

This place was nice and the customer service was very nice. We stayed here for a short getaway after the 4th of July. The first room we were given had odor issues we did not care to deal with, so we complained to the service desk. The person on duty, Mr. Cameron Douglas, helped us get a room that was a bit larger and had no issues, so we were very happy.

The weather was great for the middle of July and the location was great for exploring all that Carmel has to offer.

Room Tip: Pick a larger room when you make your reservations. You will be happier with the visit.

The worst bed I ever slept in. The
mattress was so old you fell into it. Woke up with neck and back pain. If they charge $160 a night the least they can do is provide a decent bed.

We take these concerns seriously and offered this guest a solution at the time of their stay. The mattress in question is in fact a Serta 5 star pillowtop, commercial grade and just 1 year old. We receive many compliments on these mattresses however, we do regret that it wasn't suitable for this guest.

We enjoy the breakfast delivered to the door every morning. The pool is very nice. The rooms are large and spacious for our needs. The fireplace is wonderful when the weather gets cool. I like the discounts with some of the restaurants in town. The walk to town is easy and fast.

The hotel "Svendsgaard's Inn" is a good hotel in Carmel by the Sea. They allow dogs which makes it the perfect destination for us. The rate per night is reasonable. We stay at least three times a year there. The staff is nice. Check in is easy. Locations is central. We stay at the "Svendsgaard's Inn" hotel out of the following reasons: location, dog friendly, okay pricing, two person hot tub in room, fireplace.

spent 2 nights here at the beginning of june. on the whole we enjoyed are stay and had no real issues with the hotel , the room was comfortable and the delivered breakfast is a nice touch. the furniture and the rooms in general seemed to be a little dated, this wasnt really a problem for us however the price we paid for the room i expected a little more, i guess though that we were charged the going rate for this kind of property in carmel which is probably higher than other areas.

I booked this at the last minute with no expectations other than that they allowed dogs. I ignored the cranky reviews and am glad I did. It's not a 4 star place, but it is cute and cozy. It is great for dogs. Also, leave breakfast at your door in the morning, along with a little treat for the pooch :-) We will be back!
