Bilancia2012 has it spot on -- the positives are its location and room size; negatives are dated décor and no view. The boxed breakfast thing is a feature of several of the Inns By The Sea (e.g. Svendsgaard) but at least at this place you can easily opt out of the breakfast, which we did.

Also, the beds all have feather mattress-top covers. My wife finds these uncomfortable to sleep on; we requested they remove it but the message got mixed up with housekeeping and they removed the feather quilt instead.

Even with all that, if you stay at any of the Inns By The Sea once, they'll send you special off-season rate deals which definitely increase the value of the location and diminish the other negatives.

We stayed 5 days over Thanksgiving holiday. Our room had a separate bedroom, living room & kitchen. Each rooms were not big but cozy. Bathroom was small but clean and updated, also has jet bath. Beds were very comfortable. Location was perfect. There are many great restaurants steps away. Very convenience location. I liked the morning breakfast delivery, simple but enough. We really enjoyed staying this inn.

PS. It's true you can hear noise upstairs but most old inn and b&b, they have same issues.

We stayed at the Wayside the night before thanksgiving. The room was beautiful, the bed was extremely comfortable and the people we encountered at the front desk were incredibly helpful with questions we had about our stay and about the town of carmel. the hotel is located right in the middle of town. i recommend parking in their lot and then walking around town rather then finding a metered spot on the street.

This establishment has been designed to obtain the best possible return on investment for shareholders with the minimum amount of management input.

The staff on site are friendly and efficient and there is parking on site. The rooms are clean, comfortable and large enough. The Inn is only a close walk from some delightful restaurants, cafés and bars.

On arrival it was not obvious where the reception was. There is no dining room, breakfast is ordered on a card in the room and is delivered in a picnic pack early in the morning. There are no suitable table or chairs in the room where you can sit and eat your breakfast and although the breakfast menu gives you the choice of toast only a slice of bread is included in the pack but no toaster is provided!

There is coffee, biscuits and fruit available in reception and there is also a coffee making machine in the room with two sachets of coffee, one of which is decaffeinated; each sachet making one pot of coffee.

It's the lack of effort from management that lets this place down. If you're looking for a genuine B&B I'd suggest you look for somewhere run by the owner rather than this corporate inn.
