Reviewed 23 October 2017

We stayed here for 1 night only. The check-in went smoothly and we got a nice, big room on the second floor.

By the looks of it, many rooms have windows towards the exterior corridor, but ours did not. We had a view of the town, which was way more pleasant.

Wifi worked great

The bathroom was clean and the shower had a removable showerhead. Big plus!

The breakfast was delivered in a cool bag to our door. We repacked it and ate it on the road. Yogurt, muffins, fresh fruit and orange juice amongst others. It covered the basics. It was all we needed.

Big parking lot, lots of space.

Free coffee and tea in the lobby

Gas station within a block. Always convenient when you are on a road trip.

A perfect location with walking distance to everything in Carmel-by-the-sea.

If we ever come back to Carmel, we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try go for a room that doesn't have windows towards the exterior corridors.

You will love the rooms, pool, seating areas. Each morning a breakfast bag is brought to your door step with newspaper so you may enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with a light breakfast to start you relaxed day in Carmel.

Nice, clean older inn, but musty old smell when walked in. This seems to be most of the inns in Carmel I guess because older. It Was quiet and comfortable though. Nice location to town walking distance .

Stayed here for 4 nights in a lovely, clean, corner "standard" room on the second floor. Nice and spacious with nice big windows and even a window in the bathroom which allowed for a lot of natural light and cross breeze. It's within walking distance of everything in Carmel. Just a couple of negatives....the room had an unpleasantly strong odour of disinfectant which is not very inviting. Our room was an adjoining room next to a larger suite with a kitchen and although it was mostly quiet during our stay, on one night there was a family staying there and we noticed it wasn't very soundproof.

We loved it! Everything from the rooms, to the service, to the discounts at local restaurants was perfect. We brought our dog and the hotel was very accommodating, they even added a little bag of dog treats to our continental breakfast! The location is great and was walking distance to pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. I would definitely recommend Svengaard's to anyone looking to go to Carmel.
