We were absolutely delighted with our stay at the Sea View Inn. Beautiful and imaginative decor, sensibly priced, and located in a residential area away from the busy center of Carmel, yet close enough to walk to the center and to the sea coast. Staff were extremely friendly, wine and cheese and breakfast were excellent, with good opportunities to chat with other guests, who were diverse and interesting. Our visit was topped off by going dancing (no cover charge) to the sounds of "Wally's Swing World" at Clint Eastwood's place not far away, and during the course of the evening, Clint actually stopped by for a drink!!
