Wayside Inn, Carmel
Comfortable, quiet, and right in town.

Wayside Inn, Carmel
Very Good8.0
Amazing, comfortable Inn and location offering the best continental breakfast! Very cute and spacious room, the only negative was that there was not a door separating the bathroom between the Ballroom & bedroom. Have not experienced this before. No privacy 😟.
Cynthia, us1 night family trip
Wayside Inn, Carmel
Loved it!
Check-in was easy and friendly, the room was clean, and the location was perfect. The picture shows a tub in the main room which wasn't the case for our room despite our selecting the same level of room, but otherwise it was great. We'd stay there again. Free room-service breakfast was great!

Wayside Inn, Carmel
Great location
The bathroom was in a hallway between kitchen/living room and bedroom. Little ackward. Great gas fireplace and great breakfast delivered to the room.
Jeff, us1 night family trip
Wayside Inn, Carmel
Loved our stay at the Wayside! We spent 3 nights there over New Years and they exceeded our expectations. Room was clean and well equipped. We loved the breakfast brought to our room each morning. Staff was pleasant and met all our needs. Location can’t be beat. Can’t wait to return.
