We loved the big suite. It gives you lots of privacy whilst everyone else sleeps. I love having a kitchenette. My husband loved sitting in the lobby while I got ready. Make sure to take time to swim in the pool. It's like a home away from home!

My husband and I often travel to Carmel Ca, and stay at Svendsgaards Inn every time. We have never had a bad stay there. They are pet friendly as well, and take pride in the way you as a guest are treated. It's a great place for children, and it is very convenient and close the beach as well as shopping and great places to eat. We feel like it is our "Home away from Home".

Room Tip: There is a wide choice of rooms and rates, but I recommend staying in one of the fire place/tub for...

We stayed here for our wedding, and it was all around a wonderful experience. The room exceeded our expectations, and the staff were all great! They staff were all very friendly and made great recommendations for restaurants to try. The fresh baked cookies in the lobby were delicious. It was really nice to have breakfast delivered to our room each morning, that was left in a cooler so that we could retrieve it when we woke up, they didn't even knock which was very nice to not be interrupted. It was a very simple but nice breakfast. For the 2 of us we had 2 types of pastries, 2 boxes of cereal, 2 types of fruit, 2 yogurts, 2 small cans of orange juice, and 1 small cartoon of milk delivered with the paper each morning. There was also a Keurig in the room for coffee, with cream and sugar in the small refrigerator. The grounds were beautiful with flowers everywhere. We did not use the pool, however it did look very nice. It is also a very convenient location for nearby restaurants, we enjoyed the sports bar across the street as well as seafood restaurants within walking distance. We drove to the beach, but it would be a nice walk as well if you don't mind walking on the old sidewalks in Carmel. Before our trip we had booked 1 more night at another hotel (to extend our stay longer than we had originally planned) and we ended up leaving that hotel to return to Svendgaard for another night.

We have been coming here for about twenty years. It just seems to keep getting better. Location is perfect you can walk anywhere including the beach. The staff is always great and make you feel special when you are there. We love the quaint atmosphere and courtyard with all the wonderful foliage. Heated pool is perfect. You wake up to a nice basket of fruit, milk, yogurt, juice, bakery goodies and the newspaper... I will come back til I can't go anywhere anymore!!!

We really like this place for its location, friendliness, and lovely property. This was our second stay. We feel comfortable here and love the fact that we can bring our dog! Nice room and pool area. A small lawn area is available, too.

If you vacation with your dog this is the place to stay. Ground floor rooms are near the grass area for dogs, very pretty and relaxing. The pool is inviting and and clean. We had the the suite with two rooms, two king sized beds, two tvs,fireplace, shower,tub, jacuzzi and kitchenette. A table, sink and small frig.
All that we needed. We actually used the fireplace and found it warmed the room very well.
We love to travel with our dogs and found Svendgaard's a few years ago and have been there twice and plan to return as often as we can. My beagle Kayla LOVED her king sized bed!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with your pet ask for a room near the grass for those late night early morning...

The rooms are grand but I felt that they were damp - it was chilly and foggy when we were there and maybe that was why - the rooms are large and the bed is comfortable - friendly staff and a nice fire in the lobby with coffee, tea, cookies and fruit available. Brophys is very good across the road. We had a nice stay - the breakfast is a bit sparse as some one else stated but it is ok - at least you don't have to get up for it as it is delivered to the room.
