We just spent 2 nights here with our dog...and it was perfect! We had a fireplace room which was quite spacious...the bed was very comfortable and had nice linens, and there were 2 comfy chairs for tv watching! We loved the continental breakfast delivered to our doorstep each morning, complete with newspaper (and milk bones for the pooch!). Breakfast consisted...

Svengaard's Inn was simply excellent. The room was comfortable and very clean. The garden was also very pleasant. The continental breakfast in a cooler outside the door is a great idea for folks that want to relax and not have to get up in time to get breakfast at a restaurant. Overall, I would definitely recommend Svengaard's Inn to anyone...

Svendgaard's which has been around a while has joined forces with other inns along the Central Coast as Inns by the Sea. So though we had never stayed at S. before, by staying at their sister property in Capitola we were suddenly sent an offer for the off-season that we couldn't turn down. So with two dogs and of course...

This is the place I choose to stay when I come to Carmel. I usually bring my pup and Svendsgaard's Inn is pet-friendly. They even have a grassy area for your dog. In the morning you will find a bag at your door with some breakfast items and doggy treats if you have a dog, plus the newspaper. It's usually...

We have been staying at Svendsgaard's Inn for more than 40 years, usually two or three times a year. The Inn Manager, Ricardo Lopez, is extremely professional and accommodating. Anything we needed was immediately at our fingertips. The Lars Suite has been recently remodeled and is absolutely lovely. The beauty of Svendgaard's is that it is so well located, within...

This hotel was exactly what we needed for our one night stay in Carmel. The hotel was a bit outdated, but the rooms were clean, and the location was close to downtown and the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone making a stop-over in Carmel.

We were visiting for our anniversary on a discount coupon and had a blast. The Inn is located just a few blocks walk from downtown Carmel and is handy to many bars, restaurants and the beach. In my opinion, you can't beat the location at any price, unless you find a place on the beach (like Inn at Pebble Beach)!...

On our way to our daughter's home in Castro Valley, we took a break from driving and once again, enjoyed our overnight stay at this lovely Inn. The gardens are beautiful, there's a heated swimming pool, and the rooms have been upgraded. Another plus is it's so close to town. We've been staying at Svendsgaard's Inn for forty years!
