Close to major points in Carmel. Highly efficient method of delivering breakfast. Shower on 2nd day was either too hot or too cold. Informed main desk and am sure it will be addressed. Will returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything about our room and the services provided by Svensgaard's Inn was first-class. From the "welcome" cookie to the extensive breakfast which arrived at our door in the insulated bag, the very comfy king-sized bed, the romantic fireplace, to the beautiful pool and surroundings, all was as described. We highly recommend it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"old carmel feel"
Location was good, but a bit noisy for a side street. The room was nice, but the bed was so lumpy and saggy. You could feel all the springs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Carmel Atmosphere"
Excellent location in close proximity to shops and dining. We were able to walk everywhere, to find anything we needed. A great place to stay to experience the village. The inn is clean, quiet and very comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a relaxing getaway"
Loved the people, location, quiet relaxing feel. Great coffee in the lobby and cookies too. The only down side was that the bathroom was very small for 3 gals, but we made it work and would return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very quaint setting within easy walking of the town and beaches. Staff vey helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back again..Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel, call ahead of time if traveling w/dog"
very friendly staff, breakfast was minimal but good, coffee and cookies were great, room was clean and tidy. hotel is dog-friend but only with some rooms, the staff booked us in a regular room and took good care of us even with the dogsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming and Welcoming"
The courtyard is charming with wonderful flowers and a very nice pool. The lobby is welcoming and has hot coffee and fresh cookies. The staff is friendly, helpful, and efficient. The rooms are spacious and attractive with nice fireplaces. There is a bath with tub/shower and a Jacuzzi tub. Baths are spotless but show wear. Price is reasonable by Carmel […] standards and location is convenient. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was exceptional and went out of their way to be sure we were comfortable. Continental breakfast delivered to your room in a cooler was nicer than expected, cookies in lobby yummy. Would do it again without hesitationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Visit to Carmel"
Or room was small and things were kind if hidden. No one answers at the desk until 8:00am and I couldn't find the coffee condiments anywhere. When I finally got someone at the first dek we found out under the TV was an enclosed refrigerator with the condiments, one hour after I woke up. The hair dryer was in the closet. However, the room was clean, […] the pool ws heated, the staff were helpful. Thy deliver a basket for breakfast that was more than adequate. Carmel is an expensive town and this was good quality hotel for the money. Fresh cookies in the afternoon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I'd stay here again!"
Aside from the bed being a bit too soft the room was great. It had a spa tub large enough for two as well an a one-person in the bath/shower. The room had a gas fireplace and a second HD TV for the larger tub. The hotel also has a nice pool The location is great , just a few blocks to everywhere and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Another desirable […] feature is that the rooms do NOT face the street like many other places in the vicinity so that adds a measure of privacy. The layout could have been better but perhaps the room was just a tad small. However, this IS Carmel so we didn't come here to hang out in the room! Overall.............I'd stay here again and would recommend this hotel to a couple with pets or a family. It is great to be able to park your car and walk to wherever you want to go.

"Good Value in Carmel"
Had 3 nights in a very comfortable 2nd floor corner room overlooking the grassy , flower filled courtyard .I enjoyed watching people play with their pets below. Good price and easy few short block walk to main street in Carmel. Convenient to restaurants .Breakfast comes in a cooler left at your front door .Neat idea .Newspaper included. I am not a big […] fan of rice crispies and wish there was a choice of a low fat , fibre breakfast. fresh fruit was great but skip the yogurt . No tea bags to be found but complimentary water in fridge appreciated. Nice welcome in reception with complimentary cookies and beverages like tea , coffee and water . I would stay here argain , I was travelling alone and felt very safe . No bath tub in my bathroom but it was a large room with a great bed and huge TV. No sofa though which would have been nice to relax on . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location close to down town"
nice place to stay breakfast and paper at your door was great close to downtown shopsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, nice size room. The comfy bed was the best part of the trip. Thin walls so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The night clerk was erogant and unhelpful. The Manager/Owner was extremely helpful and made the stay much better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and quiet location"
We liked the hotel very much and will return. The breakfast delivered to the door is very convenient, but people like me would enjoy healthier selections more. Adding a hard boiled egg and using instead of the croissants some whole wheat bread would have been sufficient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location in Carmel"
Stay was great, staff fantastic, location perfect. Parking easy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrific off-season value."
Quiet (hotel was not full and it was off-season). Comfortable. Well-located off the main drag but easily accessible. The room was small but airy and light. The room had a feeling of being a bit "tired" because the bathroom facilities and carpet appeared to have "seen their day" and could be updated. But the room was spotless and otherwise well-kept. […] Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We spent one night there with our dog and were extremely happy with the experience. Great customer service, great location, and discounts to restaurants nearby. The place could use a bit of updating but it is kept in very good condition, is clean, and the staff is extremely helpful and cheery. We're definitely going to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little slice of heaven.."
I loved driving into the area; it was like back in time with the cottage atmosphere all around. After a nice rain it was cool, quiet and very cozy. I love the grounds of the hotel, the twinkle lights.. a cozy fire in the lobby. Fresh cookies with warm drink awaited us. The room was comfortable and well kept, clean and had everything we needed for the […] weekend. The continental breakfast was just right, fresh pastries and juices and cereals, with yogurt delivered to our door as we slept in the quiet solitude. It is within walking distance to the Carmel Village, with lots of shops to explore and wonderful places to eat. We received a discount by our stay here. Nice surprise. I will be back, next time I will get a room with a Jacuzzi tub and fireplace. I would highly recommend this to my friends..Oh, I already did. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, convenient."
Nice hotel, the only issue we had was that our room faced the street, so a bit of street noise but we leave the windows open as we love cool fresh air. We'll stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good but 2 problems"
We stayed in Room 15, which is on 4th Street, and it's noisy in the daytime because there is more traffic on the street than you expect. The room is right on the sidewalk. It's also a little on the small side and would not suit a family.Genuine Expedia guest review
There's a lot of positives of this hotel but needs to be updated. The outside is beautiful as is the office but the room did not match the surroundings. Since we spent more time in the room than in the office or gardens, it would have been nice if the room had reflected the rest of the motel. New linens, new beds and a bathroom remodel would have made […] the stay much nicer. The Kuerig coffee maker was wonderful! It was great to have the breakfast delivered but the same items laid out in the office area with fresh pastries would have been a nice option since we felt that we wasted food we didn't eat (or want).

"A bit dated but satisfactory"
What seems to be a typical older Carmel hotel. Primitive bathroom, thin walls, & well worn bed. Good location and friendly front desk. Breakfast provided at your front door in the morning. A bit pricey for condition of hotel but not out of the Carmel price norm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful place to stay in Carmel. Great service. Just know that there is no A/C.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Went there for a nice quiet get away and discovered that a poodle parade was going on in Carmel so we had barking dogs at night and barking dogs in the morning. I t was frustrating because we wanted to relax and sleep in and not listen to peoples animals. They should have told us that there was a special event happening in advance and that there would […] be a lot of animals staying there with the possibility of noise that would not necessarly be welcomed.

"Great hotel to relax and enjoy a vacation."
Overall excellent hotel. However, during hot weather it may be a problem because of no air conditioning availability. Excellent location: easy walking distance to wonderful little stores, restaurants and the ocean. Great continental breakfast delivered to your room and a daily newspaper.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute hotel near shopping area of Carmel"
After evaluating several places online, we chose this inn/hotel and we were very pleased with the staff, room, location, and service. Our only comment would be that there is a stain on the floor under the bathroom sink where it looks like rusty water has dripped and the sink drain had places where the enamel had worn away making it look dated and w […] orn.

"Great spot for a couples getaway"
We thought the location was perfect to walk to downtown Carmel. The grounds were beautiful. The rooms were spacious with seating. We loved the delivered continental breakfast and paper every morning. So refreshing to not have the community breakfast room. The bathroom fixtures could use updating, they were functional but very worn.Genuine Expedia guest review
the hotel stay was amazing! Someone dropped the ball as far as getting my girlfriend a birthday card for her birthday along with the champagne. that was made up for the next night with a nice bottle of wine!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the second time I have stayed here & plan to use it as my preferred place to stay in Carme. The location is excellent & the price is good. The rooms are clean & there is good service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to downtown but outdated..."
Hotel was ok for a one night stay in Carmel. Rooms are outdated, mattress was lopsided. Continental breakfast was a nice surprise.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to shops & restaurants"
Very nice place to stay, helpful staff. Tub was not a 2-person tub like they promised but still comfortable. Make sure you check the jets for cleanliness. Ours probably hadn't been used in a while. Breakfast was a nice surprise. Watch out for the dog poop on the grass since this is a pet friendly hotel. We may stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"well accommodated hotel"
the room was spacious and clean. the staff very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in the queen suite, which has a view of the ocean from the kitchenette windows. It was roomy, clean, and and nicely deocrated. Gas fireplace. I appreciated the half and half in the refrigerator, coffee, tea and bottled water, all complimentary. And the continental breakfast basket of fruit, yogurt, juice and pastries delivered in the morning. […] The front desk people were very nice and helpful. The place is only a 2-block walk from Carmel shops, art galleries and restaurants. I will certainly return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Why pay more if you just need a place to stay?"
Spotless, bright cheery room. Nicely done grounds. Didn't have a chance to use the relaxing-looking pool. Easy walk to anything you wish in town. And a classy individually-delivered included breakfast left for the guests outside their door in a cooler. What more do you need?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for vacation couple"
The room was very clean and quiet, my friend told me the location is good too, just 2 blocks away from the main street. but we got there at night and left very early. We missed it.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean and comfortable. The television was extremely small and there was not much counter space in the bathroom. I think for what you get it was very overpriced. Would come back for half the price. Very nice and friendly front desk people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall this is a great little place to stay. We stayed in the "spa tub and fireplace queen suite". It's very conveniently located, and the room was neat and clean. The desk clerk was very helpful. About 9pm we called to report that our windows were open and it was clear that someone was smoking in the courtyard. They smoking guest was escorted away […] from the courtyard within minutes. They also leave a really nice little breakfast "basket" (cooler) at your door in the morning. The bed was REALLY comfy. We were not impressed with the "spa tub" and wouldn't go for that in the future. It was just a regular (smallish) size tub and it the plug didn't seem to keep in the water, so we didn't actually get to use it. However, there was a nice gas fireplace and the room was quite large, so overall we were quite happy. It was very quiet all night long until the morning when traffic starts (but I suspect this is the case for all the hotels in downtown Carmel). Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful little Inn"
Fantastic service- my son got a stomach bug within an hour of being there and was sick for 24hrs. i needed to extend my stay and they were able to provide an extra day and DID NOT try to charge me extra- they gave me the same low rate I got from hotels.com for the first night's stay. very cool of them. the front desk service was terrific in general […] as well.
