We have been going to Carmel for 30 years & this is a very nice place to stay. We highly recommend it! Very clean & cosy but modern & updated. For breakfast, you're given a list of things to choose from & it's delivered to your room.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and met all our needs. There was even a flashlight in the drawer as Carmel is very dark at night. Breakfast was great. You ordered from many choices including quiche, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and pastries. The breakfast was then delivered to your door at the time you requested....

We stayed here one night on our trip down the coast from San Francisco to LA. Although we saw the room online when we booked we were pleasantly surprised to find it even more charming ( you know sometimes those professional pictures can be misleading) than we expected. Check in went smoothly although in a more personal setting of a...

We stayed for a night in this well located inn. The accommodation was very generous. Our bed was comfortable and we had an excellent nights sleep. Breakfast is delivered to your room. We were both slightly underwhelmed by our choices but that was really the only negative. Great spot for exploring all that Carmel has to offer.

Wayside Inn, located in the Stunning township of Carmel was welcoming & well appointed. The staff were all exceptionally helpful from first contact at arrival - through to the onward shipping of items left behind! Their home made breakfast was delicious & everything was within easy walking distance. I wish we could've stayed longer.
