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 The hotel was a bit outdated, but the rooms were clean, and the location was close to downtown and the beach.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!

We stay at Svengaards 2 or 3 times a year and have always been well looked after and our dog knows just which room to go to. Many excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks--some give a discount when showing the Svengaards key. The beach is heaven for fun-loving dogs and people.

I opted for the "pet friendly" room, only to discover that this means my dogs must sleep and stay inside of a crate. They are not permitted on beds. My dogs are my babies....this did not go over well.

We arrived on a Wednesday at Noon and stayed two nights in a lovely corner room with a view of the ocean and sunset. The room was cosy and comfortable with TV and King bed.
