Great location. Very friendly and helpful at check in. The maintenance of the room could be a little better, as the shower head was dangling downwards so it sprays towards the wall instead of the body. The removable handheld shower head doesn't remove very well. But then again...location, location, location.

Quaint & Comfortable
I only stayed for a night, but I found the Wayside Inn absolutely charming and delightful. My king room was small but not cramped and very comfortable. Service at the front desk was friendly and efficient. The location is fantastic - it's a block away from all the shops and restaurants on Ocean Avenue, and a lovely half mile walk to the beach.

Great location for walking Carmel. Super clean, friendly service. Gas fireplace for cool evenings. Getting hot water to shower was a problem. Bathroom was a wierd design requiring walking past it with no door to get from living room to bedroom. Had to declare “ I’m going potty” and close living room and bedrooms doors for privacy. But it was a renovated apartment and that’s just the way it works. Super comfy beds. I’d stay again even with the peculiar bathroom layout.

I like the suite concept over studio layout. The building was a bit noisy. You can hear creaks in the shower tub as well as walls.
