We have been to many hotels all over Asia and America. I think this place Svendsgaard's is the coolest of them all. Surely worth every penny! Awww awesome!!!

Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Chose Svendsgaards because we needed a 2 room suite to accomodate our group and a place that accepts dogs and this met the bill. The hotel is an older one but they've kept it well maintained and clean. If you're looking for a friendly, casual type of place this is a good option. The lobby area keeps water/coffee and fruit available all day and puts cookies out each afternoon/evening. They have games and menus and knowledgeable staff to answer your questions. The pool is decent sized although not tons of room for lounging but enough. The hotel wraps around a good sized grassy lawn/garden area which was very pleasant. Several tables there for guests to relax at, particularly nice for those with dogs who want to hang out outside. Several guests enjoyed their breakfast and paper outside in the morning.

The room we had was a 2 bedroom suite. The rooms each connected to a little kitchen area which meant the rooms were separated enough for us not to bother each other should someone wake up early - and the kitchen table was a handy place to hang out early in the morning for that same reason (especially when the dog is up!) The basic breakfast was delivered as promised in a cooler with a paper each morning - good enough to get you going but not special if breakfast is your thing. (little yogurts, fruit, pastries, cereal boxes and milk)

Location was just a few blocks off the main shopping street but near plenty of stores and restaurants. Being off the main drag meant it was quiet too. I'd recommend this place if you aren't looking for a special occasion hotel but one that's reasonable, clean and comfortable. It had a nice casual feeling.

This is a very pleasant motel, centrally located. We parked the car and enjoyed the area walking. Staff were very helpfull. Room was clean and roomy, some with ocean views, good breakfast. We will return in June for our anniversary.

It is great to have a place that welcomes your dogs as much as their owners. Very nice accommodations within walking distance of restaurants, shops, galleries, and of course, the BEST dog beach in the world!

We have been staying a couple times a year at Svendgaard's in Carmel for the past 30 yerars and cannot say enough about the attentive service of the staff. The rooms are lovely and some have ocean views. The breakfast delivered to our room is always just enough to prepare us for lunch and dinner in one of Carmel's fabulous restaurants. We love this place. It is one of the few places in Carmel with a heated pool.

We stayed here with our two greyhounds overnight. The room was spacious with plenty of room for two big dog beds. It was a short walk to the main street, shops and many restaurants, several of which are also dog friendly. We walked to the beach from the hotel and all over downtown. Breakfast was delivered in the morning in a small cooler;
tea, coffee and cookies/fruit were always available in the lobby. Landscaping around
the hotel is very nice; lots of flowers blooming. We definately will be back !

Great pet friendly facility. Truly a wonderful accomodating staff. Early light breakfast served to your room. Pool is an added bonus in Carmel. We will definitely return on our next vacation.
