LillieC wrote a review Nov 2022
The tradewinds is essentially a motel. But, putting that aside, I was pretty appalled by their cancellation policy and customer service. I booked a trip and cancelled a week in advance. They charged a $25 cancellation fee per room, which is completely non-standard. Management was unwilling to discuss.

We believe in transparency and to that end, post all of our cancellation policies online to avoid disappointing prospective guests. We’re sorry you missed that information. In any case, you are forever welcome to join us in the future as we’re sure you’ll enjoy an amazing experience! Take care!

My husband & I bring our dog & go to Carmel annually for our anniversary. This year we found Tradewinds & WOW! What a stupendous spot! It’s like being in a zen center. Calm, quiet, peaceful. Our room was large, comfortable & had a deck to watch the sunset. The sheets were soft & sublime! Breakfast was an interesting selection - I chose the french baguette w/brie, which I loved. The staff are professional and friendly. I think the quiet location is a major plus. We will definitely come back!

Tradewinds was awesome! Tranquil, serene, clean, comfortable on a quiet street. Great ambience, beautiful grounds, fireplace, jacuzzi bathtub, Japanese fountain. Very comfortable bed. The self-selected breakfasts in a basket delivered outside my door were so welcomed.

Delicious breakfasts, really nice fireplaces, and cozy interior and exteriors. We really liked the overnight oats and the croissants, and the bathroom was really beautiful. The sheets were nice too. It was a nice place to rest at the end of a long day of sightseeing!

Such a cozy and special place, even with teens! It doesn’t look like much from the outside but the rooms are well appointed, service was excellent, and the interior courtyard with a fire pit at night was amazing. Super fast and easy walking into the main district, maybe 5-10 mins at most. Will be staying here again for sure!

We stayed at the Tradewinds while visiting Carmel. What a perfect place to stay. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful, the ambiance of the property is fantastic and the room was wonderful. The property is set up like a Buddhist retreat with little nooks and crannies with tables and chairs, a sitting Buddha in the corner, bamboo everywhere it is truly lovely. The room was average size with a nice bathroom, comfortable bed, table and seating and a refrigerator/bar with a faucet and sink. Breakfast was ordered the day before and delivered to our door at a time we selected. There were various options for breakfast and they were nicely presented in glass containers. We were able to get extra coffee when requested. The only complaint about the room is that the table had one chair and one backless stool. There was room for a second chair and when 2 are staying in the room our preference would have been for a second chair. Oh one more good feature, parking on the premises and everything in downtown Carmel was accessible by walking. We would definitely stay in this property again.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here on recommendation from friends. The service and attentiveness of the staff has been great. Location is great-easy to get downtown and to the beach. Quiet, relaxing, clean. Dog friendly and we had parking waiting for us without a hassle. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast brought to our room each morning. Would definitely come again and recommend to others.
