Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Easy access to the coastline
great location. makes it very easy to take a walk to the coastline.

Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Nice location but tiny, tiny bathroom
Really cute place but the room we stayed in was small which would have been ok except the bathroom was super tiny and neither my wife nor I are big people. The shower made us feel claustrophobic! They also had an electric heater that knocked all night so we ended up turning off the thermostat at 5am so we could sleep. The staff is nice, the breakfast is too and the location can’t be beat (farther away from Ocean Ave but not too far). It’s just either that particular room (16) or the whole property just needs some updating.
