My husband and I visited here at Christmas time a few years ago. We selected this place because they allow dogs, it's in a great location, and we wanted to stay somewhere higher end. We visited again about a year later in the summer. Same great experience. The rooms are nice, fireplace, quiet, great bedding (I ended up asking where...

The Tradewinds was built in 1959, so it is not new, but totally renovated property. The setting is Zen centered, with an oriental flair, gardens, evening fire pit. The room we had was wonderful, with a great gas fireplace across from the foot of the king sized bed, with two chairs and a table to pull up to the fire....

Had a great experience staying here with my girlfriend. It was her first time on the west coast and she really enjoyed the town of Carmel. We were both impressed with our room. I definitely would stay here again.

Booked an overnight stay in Carmel. Room was clean and amenities new, although the property from the outside has a more inn/motel feel. The landscaping on the property did impress. The laundry was underneath our set of rooms, so we had the burnt/sweet floral smell for the duration of our stay. Location was good and allowed us to walk to...

This is more of an Inn than an hotel, but it is good. Rooms are comfortable with a fireplace. Breakfast was better than expected considering there are very few staff. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is good, just a 5 minute walk from lots of restaurants and shops.

While traveling north from Los Angeles to San Fancisco we decided to stay in Carmel for the night and pre booked Tradewinds off recommendations from Trip Advisor. We were so happy we did! Only down side was not being able to stay for longer to enjoy this wonderful place. We were greeted by friendly staff and the resident cat, Sweetie....

... if only the breakfast was served in a different place This is a rather odd motel turned hotel with a very strange reception area, but don't despair as the rooms have their charm. The owner bought this once upon a time landmark motel and being a Bali lover turned it into some sort of Asian hideaway. It is a...

When I drove in and walked around. I immediately saw the beautiful Buddha and the fountains and realized that this was a special place. all the little touches in the hotel were so sweet.

Best place in Carmel. I can't wait to go again. So cute, dog friendly. I wished I stayed for more than 2 nights. 2 nights is just not enough. Tucked away several streets from the Main Street, but not too far from the beach
