Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Stayed in Carmel for conference. Colonial Terrace was a comfy little hotel.

Serene and Relaxing Getaway!
Very clean and charming little place with friendly staff and good breakfast and cookies too. Unfortunately we had some kids in the unit above us who kept running and jumping up and down causing a ruckus which sort of ruined the experience for us a bit but overall a great place to stay and only a block away from the ocean. Would definitely recommend and may go back there again soon!

Great location. 1 block from the beach in a quiet neighborhood setting. A 3-5 min. drive to Carmel shops. Beautiful gardens. Room was comfortable although bathroom was small. Room very clean. Friendly staff.
