Svendsgaard's Inn has been our home away from home over the Thanksgiving holidays for many years. It's the one time of year that we travel with our friend(s) and all of our pups. The inn is tucked away just a few very short blocks from Ocean Avenue and the town center. Their well-kept grounds include a central grassy area for a quick doggie potty break, if you don't feel like strolling through town or taking your pup to romp on Carmel Beach. The rooms are comfortable, and the ones including a kitchenette are spacious and practical. Parent company, Inns by the Sea, has a great VIP program, offering a 40% discount and other perks, such as a dining certificate to any of the town's participating restaurants, at certain times of the year. It certainly makes our stay affordable and allows us to return year after year to this little slice of paradise. We love Svendsgaard's Inn!

Very nice inn. Less than 5 minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Nice rooms and service. Carmel doesn't have a lot of street lighting so recommend arriving before dark. Not the Inns fault but made getting there a little more stressful.

Thank you for posting your kind review. I have to agree that Carmel can be a little challenging at dark when your driving through town. The same remains true even if your using GPS. Your always welcome to call us directly if your ever need help finding our location in the future. Thank you again for sharing!

We had a really nice time in Carmel-by-the-Sea. The Inn needs some upgraded love that's for sure and for the price this one and many others need to be upgraded. We will visit this area again but will be looking for another place to stay for the money.

Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor. I'm am truly sorry to read that you will not visit us again because of the condition of the room and the price. I realize we cannot change your experience you had with us, however, I highly recommend that you try our other sister properties in Carmel. The Wayside Inn, Carrriage House, and Candle Light. All three properties have most recently gone through renovations. Thank you again for you review!

The hotel is really nice for the excellent location, sweetest staff (especially Ricky who is awesomely warm and kind), nice lobby with fireplace, room amenities and general broom cleanliness.
There was a nice heated outdoor pool too. We didn’t use it because of the cold weather but if it was summer it would have been really nice.
The only thing that really bothered me was a particular “smell” in the room that was strong. It was all around the room and it kind of annoyed me.
The breakfast was OK. The nice thing is that they deliver it to your room in special lunch boxes, but we got fewer items on the second day than the first day.

Although this Inn is a few blocks away from Ocean, it is a definite place to stay while you are visiting Carmel. It is cozy, their delivery-to-room breakfasts are quite good, rooms adequate and the staff, friendly. Definitely worthy of your home away from home experience during your travel.
