Welcome to The Colonial Terrace at Carmel by the Sea. One of Carmels original accommodations The Colonial Terrace sought out the peace and tranquility of the village neighborhood when it was built in 1925. The desire for a relaxing and natural setting found the inn just steps from the sand and yet just a few blocks from the shops and restaurants of the downtown village. Visitors are treated to the quiet calmness of a residential area with the ocean breezes and gentle roaring of the nearby sea. Visitors enjoy the inns 26 rooms each with its own warm personality and many offering views of the ocean. Newly renovated most rooms have fireplaces with many featuring connecting doors to larger suites for the provision of families. Rooms with whirlpool tubs kitchenettes and wet bars are also available. A continental breakfast including bagels croissants granola fresh baked pastries and fresh fruits and juices is served each morning in the comfort of the lobby. While you enjoy your plush terrycloth robes in the privacy of your own room fresh ground coffee makers and daily newspaper delivery to your door help to begin the day. Our collection of rooms and wonderful location provide the perfect retreat for couples and honeymooners as well as a getaway for families young people and adventurous souls seeking the romance and activities that the oceanfront and Carmel Village provide. Offering privacy and personal service our romantic inn is just one block from the beach and close to shopping while offering on site parking and the charm of a unique boutique property.

Great value for comfortable, quiet Carmel visit

The location is perfect - close to the beach and to downtown Carmel. Service was excellent, room was perfect for us, and the grounds of the property have many lovely places to sit and enjoy the beautiful setting. Overall, a great experience.

Great location and staff, but just basic room for price

This hotel is somewhat out of the town center, but ideal if you like to walk along the beach or quiet treelined streets. It is very close to a wonderful beach access at 13th Avenue. However, the facility itself is what appears to be a converted garden motel or apartment. Our room had a comfortable bed and the fireplace was nice, but otherwise it was not particularly luxurious for the price. The walls were thin, so you could hear quite a bit of noise outside. The outside space is beautiful with an outdoor fireplace and chairs and tables.

We like to walk, so this location about 6 blocks south and 3 blocks west of town center was fine, we were more interested in the super short walk to the beach. Restaurants in Carmel are just OK, not great. It was a labor to find a 'late' breakfast on Sunday

JUST NOT THE SAME

WE HAVE STAYED HERE MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS. UNFORTUNATELY, THINGS HAVE GONE DOWNHILL. WE TURNED ON THE HOT WATER IN THE SINK AND IT TOOK 10 MIN. (no lie) TO FINALLY GET LUKEWARM WATER. WE COMPLAINED, BUT THEY CERTAINLY COULD NOT FIX THE PROBLEM DURING OUR TWO NIGHT STAY. LOCATION IS ONE BLOCK FROM THE BEACH AND CLOSE TO CARMEL SHOPPING. WON'T STAY HERE AGAIN. THIS PLACE NEEDS A FULL TUNEUP!

Very pretty

Very pretty, a block from the beach and about 8 blocks from the "village." A small room with a fireplace that couldn't be switched off. Lots of lights outside the room (which is like a tiny house). Breakfast served in the office - barely fitting everyone.

Great stay in Carmel

Checked in to this cute inn and could not believe the great location one block from the beach in Carmel. Had a lovely stay in a very clean and cozy room. Staff was very nice. Amenities abound. We will be back.

We loved the Colonial Terrace Inn. Very nice room and so peaceful listening to the wave crash in our ocean view room. Breakfast was good with a nice variety to choose from. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

Charming Inn away from it all

The hotel is off the beaten path, quiet, and yet near enough to walk to the beach or to town for some good food and shopping.

Andres Bouchee - excellent food and very extensive wine list. They will waive the corking fee on a bottle you bring if you also buy one of theirs, too!

Cottage House Style

Pleasant, quiet, and charming. The cottage style in gives it a very home feeling place. Does not feel like an inn or hotel. Great breakfast!
