Faultless......everything about the Inn and Carmel was beautiful. Staff very helpful, breakfast very good and the room was huge! Clean and tidy, nice pool area and gardens. Boughys across the road was nice and comfortable with good simple reasonably priced food.

We arrived at the hotel on a one-night stay as part of a road trip. The welcome was great, and the room was located on the back end of the hotel. The hotel is setup in a motel style....all rooms give on to the exterior, but that is also part of its charm. We liked the location with regards to...

2 nights at Svendsgaard's Inn were ok but nothing more. The room was very small for a family of 4 and it could need a refurbishing. Breakfast was ok, the coffee in the reception was never warm, In total I think the price doesn't justify the offer.

Thank you for sharing your comments on TripAdvisor. I'm sorry to read that your experience with us fell short in some areas.

The hotel was clean and well presented the rooms were modern but the builing maintained the Carmel quirkiness which is certainly a compliment.

Walking distance from Ocean Ave and center of Carmel. The Inn is small and nice. The rooms are large although the layout is a bit strange. The Svendgaard does not have a dining room, they offer this unusual cool bag packed breakfast they leave outside the door. The quality and choice of this continental breakfast is poor. The room does...

Just a few blocks from downtown, staff were very friendly, rooms spacious for Carmel, comfortable, clean and quiet. Really handy to have onsite parking (although it is first come first served, we didn't have any issues finding a space). The breakfast arrangement is a little unusual in that a small 'continental' selection of food items are delivered to your door...
