Excellent experience in Carmel at your property. The location is incredible since it is so close to the beach plus walking distance to Ocean Avenue. The gardens and great service cause us to keep coming back.

Why is it that people who own B&Bs in good locations believe this gives them a free license to deliver a totally unacceptable standard of product and get away with it? We stayed here for one night last week on our way to Napa and to say we were let down is the understatement of the year. This place is...

Breathtaking in every way. My wife and I spent a weekend in Carmel last spring and had a wonderful time. Especially interesting was the quaint shops which were just few minutes from our hotel. The Colonial Terrace was a slice of cherry pie ala mode. The office was a large room beautifully appointed with a large wood burning fireplace, great...

Location is great - walk to the beach and short trip to downtown. Room was dated and a bit worn. For the price it was a decent room and worked well for us as we were there overnight. If I were going to stay for several nights I might look for something else.

I booked this Inn for my wife & myself. If you're looking for a bed that provides good back support do yourself a favor & book elsewhere. The location is nice, but I'm sure there are plenty of other establishments that could be much more accommodating. Front desk personal leaves much to be desired!😝

You traveled such a long way and certainly deserved to have a room that provided the comfort you were seeking.

We came to The Colonial Terrace on our honeymoon 35 years ago and it has lost none of its charm since. This lovely - and I mean LOVELY - inn has a very B & B feel, with cozy rooms and a nice breakfast spread each morning. Our room - 21B - had a comfortable Queen bed, small fireplace, free...

During a recent trip to the Bay area for work, I had the opportunity to stay an extra day and play Pebble Beach. So instead of driving the 2hrs down from the Bay in the morning, I decided to find a place in Carmel the night before my round of golf. With my mind far more on golf, I decided...

A bit far from Ocean Ave. the main street for shopping and eating. However, we chose the hotel because it is in a quiet residential area and very close to the beach. This has not been our first stay at The Colonial Terrace.

This hotel is small and pleasantly retro. Located one block from beach and walking distance from shops and restaurants. We never got in the car all weekend! Very comfy bed and very clean. Pleasant outdoor sitting areas. Great value.

Such an amazing and comfortable place to stay. Close to the ocean and all that Carmel has to offer. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Carmel is a beautiful place to spend a vacation and it is close to Monterey
