We had a very good experience at Wayside Inn. The room was actually two rooms - a family room and the bedroom. The hotel staff was very professional and polite. The free breakfast they leave at the door is great.

If you're looking at the web and thinking what a cute place....it is! The photo on the web looked just like the room. The staff is outstanding and couldn't be nicer. The location is ideal for walking to all of the restaurants and shops. The only improvement would be better direction on using the fireplace.

The room was comfortable, large, and nicely decorated. Close to fantastic shopping and wonderful restaurants. Within walking distance of beach. Pricey, but worth it for special occasions. Downside: after room was cleaned, working clock was replaced with a non working one. Didn't mention or complain, as we weren't using, but after arriving home we found an unexpected charge to our credit card. Wondering if the non working clock was charged to us. Will have to check it out.

We have stayed in a number of places in Carmel, but none like this. We enjoyed our room, even if it was old it was clean. And loved the location in Carmel, we just walked everywhere we wanted. Next time we need to stay in Carmel, we know where to book our reservations! What an amazing experience.

Beautiful fluffy and extremely comfy bed, nice lighting and well-thought-out reading lights as well. Interior and exterior sinks in bathroom, spotlessly clean. Country decor not over the top but nicely done. Charming garden/floral beds, very well-kept, throughout. Nice seating area/cafe table on room deck, good water pressure, quiet location. Breakfast was fine for me, but some might think it a tad light (toast, coffee, juice, yogurt, cereal) but many locations for large breakfast steps away. Located directly across from the Carmel Plaza for shopping and Ocean Ave. Walkable to the beach. Restaurants and boutique shopping surrounding. Staff was wonderful, helpful, unobtrusive. Lobby warm and inviting - fireplaces were perfect for the fog I encountered, which burned off early. I could not get my computer charger to stay in the bedroom wall sockets as they were all loose, but under the sink there was a socket for the toaster so I used that. Wi-fi (free) worked well. I will be returning.

The Wayside in is a very nice place to stay - and the location is excellent - right near the heart of the shopping and gallery district. Rooms were good sized, and well kept. The only issues were the heat (didn't work the first night - I guess there was a master switch someone forgot to turn on), and the bathroom layout -was a little awkward. Parking is a bit tight - but they always had spaces available - However this is not a place to stay if you have a large travel van type vehicle. Considering how busy it gets over the weekend the central location of the hotel turned out to be an important factor - since rather than having to spend all of our time looking for parking - which is challanging in Carmel - we were able to walk just about everyewhere we needed to - and just forget about the car until it was time to leave.

This was a pleasant stay. The room was cozy, well appointed and quiet. I rarely leave my pillow at home, because the right type of pillow is important to me. I was surrounded by soft, downy pillows, which was heaven. However, some things were not self-explanatory, or didn't work. For example, the alarm clock had no instructions, just buttons with labels. I managed to set the alarm for the right time, but for the life of me couldn't figure out how to turn it off; instead I unplugged it. Although there was an in-room coffee maker, it didn't work. Boo, hoo for those of us who have a hard time facing the day without our cup of Joe.

At check out, receptionist was rude and when asked for a comment card after check out said: "there was one in the room".... How helpful!.

Room was comfortable but rather dark. It was located under the stairwell. There was no outside seating to enjoy the area. Be sure to ask for a room with a deck. The continental breakfast was average. The coffee in the room was good. We liked that there was two separate sinks in the bathroom area so that one person could be showering and the other finishing in the second sink area. Beds were so-so.

It was convenient to all the shops and restaurants in Carmel; we were able to walk everywhere with ease. The hotel is well furnished and nicely styled. The breakfast delivered to your door is a very nice touch, enabling you to get a bite to eat before you're ready to leave for the day.

This is an older property that was very well maintained. The fireplace in our room not only added to the ambience but was helpful in taking the chill off of the room in the morning without the necessity of turning on the furnace. The continental breakfast that is made to order and delivered to your room was a nice touch. Having said that, it is the staff that helps give this establishment a leg up on the competition. They were friendly, helpful and efficient at their jobs. The price of the room was a bit high but in keeping with this tourist destination.

The bed was everything it should be when you flop down face first after a long work trip in the city. The fireplace in room was a lovely touch. Although it rained, we did not have the opportunity to use the front porch, but entering & exiting through the cute patio that was located closest to the street was a nice touch also, it made the room feel more honey. The hotel gave us a list of restaurants that has various discounts for guests and we enjoyed walking right around the corner to an excellent restaurant. Great neighborhood.

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Stephanie, who checked us in and helped with dinner reservations was amazing! She made our stay wonderful. The hotel is right in the middle of the shopping area and a short walk to the beach. The room we had was huge and very comfortable. My husband loved the mini-breakfast left outside the door every morning. I don't eat dairy or wheat so it didn't work so well for me, but no problem, there are fantastic breakfast restaurants literally across the street. And on top of it all, we lucked out with some bikini weather in the middle of February!

Our first night the room got a bit hot and we realized Room 14 is directly over the laundry. No noise, but some extra heat. The hotel doesn't have as many parking spaces as rooms, so we had to find street parking once. But overall, our room was large and the hotel is simple, well run, and extremely convenient to Ocean Avenue shops and restaurants.

We enjoyed the stay. We always enjoy going to Carmel and this trip was the best yet. The Wayside helped make it that way. Close to everything. Friendly and helpful staff.
