I had a livingsocial deal to go here and was pleasantly surprised at the experience. I was in room M-2 (Chelsea): * Great staff (Jordan is a cool guy and knows a lot about the area). * The room was quiet so it's a nice place to rest away from home. * The decor is a dated but it gives...

We recently stayed in room 46 and absolutely loved it! It is more like a suite than a room, very spacious. We loved the layout so much, my husband said that if we ever build a vacation cabin somewhere, he would base the floor plan on this room. The innkeeper when we were there on a recent weekend, Carol, was...

We have stayed several times at the Briarwood Inn. The rooms are very clean, and many have fireplaces (which we love). If you enjoy a walk, it is very convenient to walk down to the ocean and see the views of Cypress trees, lovely homes, etc. If you enjoy shopping, this Inn is just a couple of blocks from the...

The Briarwood Inn is a charming and a good place to stay while in Carmel. It is close to many fine restaurants, near downtown Carmel, and they accept pets( for a fee) Our room was comfortable, with a kitchen and a small porch making it a good size rental. The staff were very helpful and the B&B itself was larger...

Although we had planned to bring our dog, but did not at the last minute, we were still placed in a "pet friendly" room. Not bad at all actually - a second floor, darling studio-like with kitchen, large bathroom and a separate bedroom area. We thought we'd surely consider staying there again until we had our 'continental breakfast'. Sliced apples...

We had a wonderful stay at the Briarwood; lovely room and cozy lobby and manicured grounds! Carol the front desk manager was exceptional. She got us a reservation at Giavonni restaurant which we walked to (2 blocks). Carol also helped us find places, whale watching trip etc. and was so accommodating! We will go back for sure! Lovely place, nice...

This B&B is like a dream. The location right in the middle of Carmel is perfect, you don't need a car to go for a dinner or go to the beach. The room was lovely and really clean. Thanks for the great service of a really nice team. We will stay there again and I hope in the near future.

I had very nice experience staying a cute cottage. The room was very cozy, quiet and clean. There were kitchen, full size refrigerator, separate bedroom with King size bed and two twin beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great. I never experience a cottage in Carmel by the sea and it was much better than hotel room....

This B&B is well located in the center of Carmel and has on-site parking. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the room was quite cramped. Be sure to inquire about the size of the room when booking. The breakfast was cold - muffins, cereal, fruit, and coffee/tea.
