We have been staying at Svendsgaard's Inn for more than 40 years, usually two or three times a year. The Inn Manager, Ricardo Lopez, is extremely professional and accommodating. Anything we needed was immediately at our fingertips. The Lars Suite has been recently remodeled and is absolutely lovely. The beauty of Svendgaard's is that it is so well located, within...

This has become our go to hotel in Carmel. It's wonderful for travelers with children and pets and is lovely winter and summer as well. The staff is always accomodating and friendly, thank you Ricky! Easy walk to downtown shopping and restaurants - great location!

This hotel was exactly what we needed for our one night stay in Carmel. The hotel was a bit outdated, but the rooms were clean, and the location was close to downtown and the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone making a stop-over in Carmel.

We were visiting for our anniversary on a discount coupon and had a blast. The Inn is located just a few blocks walk from downtown Carmel and is handy to many bars, restaurants and the beach. In my opinion, you can't beat the location at any price, unless you find a place on the beach (like Inn at Pebble Beach)!...

On our way to our daughter's home in Castro Valley, we took a break from driving and once again, enjoyed our overnight stay at this lovely Inn. The gardens are beautiful, there's a heated swimming pool, and the rooms have been upgraded. Another plus is it's so close to town. We've been staying at Svendsgaard's Inn for forty years!

We stay at Svengaards 2 or 3 times a year and have always been well looked after and our dog knows just which room to go to. Many excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks--some give a discount when showing the Svengaards key. The beach is heaven for fun-loving dogs and people.

I opted for the "pet friendly" room, only to discover that this means my dogs must sleep and stay inside of a crate. They are not permitted on beds. My dogs are my babies....this did not go over well.

We arrived on a Wednesday at Noon and stayed two nights in a lovely corner room with a view of the ocean and sunset. The room was cosy and comfortable with TV and King bed. The lobby was welcoming with coffee, fresh baked cookies, and a roaring fire in the fireplace. The manager who greeted us was welcoming and helpful....
