Positive Reviews

A great base for walkers.

With Ocean Avenue's famed shops, art galleries and restaurants just three blocks away and the towns' fine, sandy beaches within easy strolling distance, you certainly won't find it hard to do without your car for the duration of your stay when you base yourself here.

Outdoor areas are lovely.

Peaceful and charming in equal measure, the hotel's courtyard and gardens really are very inviting indeed. However, it is perhaps the outside brick fireplace which encourages you to linger the most: having the flames dance and crackle before you as the sun sets over the town is a totally awesome treat.

Guest rooms are a good size.

The Wayfarer Inn proudly boasts that its guest accommodations are 'among the largest suites in Carmel'. And they're right to do so. If you've visited an inn-style establishment in Carmel before then you'll be pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of most of the guest rooms offered here.

Negative Reviews

Some accommodations need a little TLC.

As spacious as they are, there is no getting away from the fact that some of the Wayfarer's guest rooms could use a nip/tuck here and there to bring them more up to date. Guests have noted that the carpeting is perhaps the most pressing concern.

There's no air-conditioning.

Like the saying goes: 'California ain't the coolest place to be when you're kicking back with no A/C..'.

There's no elevator.

That's right; you're going to have to carry whatever luggage you bring up the stairs so do yourself a favor and pack light!
