Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Needs updating. When next door guests close their doors it sounds like they’re being slammed constantly. The shower knob didn’t work either it was scalding or cold very hard to adjust. It was a disappointment

Be Careful What Is Not Shown Online
Great Grounds close to the beach but once in room we were disappointed that the pictures on line were misleading, The bathroom was old and worn, bathtub was chipped in several areas, curtains were stained and flooring needs to be replaced. There is no air conditioning so had to rely on windows for cooling. Floors were uneven and had a dramatic slope in the bathroom. The room had a very musty odor and sounds from the adjacent room were ongoing just from normal conversations

Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Great location, just across the street from the beach. Friendly staff we weren’t exactly sure where it was and someone came outside and waved us down. I’d stay here again.

Colonial Terrace Inn by the Sea, Carmel
Over the top charming with beautification gardens and just a block to the beach. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. They even provided us with beach chairs and beach towels so we could enjoy the beautiful beach sunset in comfort.
