“Wonderful stay”

We stayed as a family. Wonderful room, breakfast, staff. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Recommended a wonderful place to have lunch. Enjoyed having a kitchen in the room. Would love to visit again. Quaint town.

Stayed for two nights. The room was very comfortabe, clean and quite. Had a very good time there. The breakfast delivered to your door every morning with yogurt, fruit, muffins and juice. Near to restaurants, shops and art galleries. Just a few blocks from the beach. Very romantic.

This is a great little place and we were treated so warmly by the staff upon check in. You can walk easily to everything in Carmel by the sea and there is a great tavern (brophy's) across the street. We didn't end up bringing the dog but it was an option. And while we wondered how the rooms would be since pets are allowed but the room was very clean. A great continental lunch is delivered to the door daily and we were able to take the little cooler with us for the day. And Fresh cookies, cold water and coffee were available at reception. Great place to stay!

My fiance and I stayed here Big Sur Marathon weekend and it was great. The room was clean and comfortable, they let us check out an hour later than normal because my fiance ran the marathon and needed to shower and it is just a few blocks from one of the bus pickup areas for the race. It's barely a 5 minute drive to Monterey as well, so there's easy access to everything. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: I'd request a second floor, because you can hear everything in the room above you on the ground...

Our stay here was unexpected and wonderful. After driving all day, walking on the beach, shopping or browsing art galleries this is the place where you want to unwind and create lasting memories. We are coming back for our "Family-Moon" when we get married later this year! So excited!!

We recently stayed at Svendsgaard's Inn for 3 nights and were very happy with our accommodations. When we arrived Raquel, the inn manager, was very welcoming and helpful and gave us a nicer room than we originally booked. It was a large corner room and even had a view of the ocean. In the morning, a cooler with the newspaper, 2 juices, 2 boxes of cereal, 2 pieces of fruit, 2 yougarts and 2 pastries was waiting outside our door. The room was equipped with a small frig and a new Keuring machine, both of which were appreciated. The hotel was built in the 50s, but the surrounding hotels/ inns seemed to be of the age. The location was great - an easy walk into the heart. If we ever go back to Carmel, we definitely will stay there again!

This was our second visit to Svendgaard's Inn. We get one of the large rooms with the gas fireplace and two person jacuuzi tub. The room was very quiet, clean, and comfortable. On our previous trip we brought our dog along as well. Walking distance to all downtown shops and the beach. The only thing for improvement was the grounds looked a bit run-down - especially the lawn courtyard area.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Upstairs fireplace / jacuzzi rooms are excellent!
