Carmel Wayfarer Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just gross. Everything about it to the holes in the wall to the exposed power strips to the old smelly sheets. I’d rather sleep in my car. Truly

On the 2nd floor corner. Lovely room and seems soundproof. Building is old and quaint. Very clean

The hotel is old and lack of updates. There is no staff support beside giving you a key... The only thing good is the location. You can walk to shops and restaurants in Carmel.

The hotel has a pleasant older character and patio section. It needs to upgrade the little things like soap,toilet paper and provide kleenex. The breakfast was too basic....

Owner is in the process of renovation this 75 year old hotel. It shows wear and tear but the overall look has great character. Loved the large room and quaint patio. Free parking a real plus along with being walking distance to great shops and restaurants. We will go back!

close to Carmel shopping. Old, dirty, no amenities

The sheets were very old even had rips in them and felt soggy. Bathroom looked like it came out of the fifties even had rusty towel racks.

An unclean room with a dirty blanket. No afternoon wine as advertised. No fruit or juice with breakfast.

The location is good, literally blocks from everything you want to see or do. Rooms were spacious but weary, sink separating from the wall and bed was old and uncomfortable. Tough recommendation for the money being asked. That being said you don't spend much time there, or at least we didn't because of bars, stores, restaurants, sunsets, and people. For the money spent it wouldn't take much to freshen the place up and have a very nice place to stay. Rates were similar to other properties we have stayed at some better, some worse.

there was no direct tv channels on tv, no coffee, tea & microwave in the room, no iron & board... Breakfast started at 8am (kinda late...) and had not much to eat, coffee is ok (not great)!.

The hotel seemed to cater to travelers with pets. The room smelled of dog. Not so good for me and my adult kids. The hotel is cute from the outside and in a nice area. But pretty much everything needed updating. We were also disappointed in the breakfast. No eggs or sausage. Just waffles, cereal & sweets.

Hotel needs repairs and painting Cost per room very high compared with how the hotel looks That room should be $300 per night not $ 585. It si closed to downtown but overly priced.

Nice but limited amenities and breakfast. Old tv also bathroom.

This is a quaint inn. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They even accepted a delivery to my hotel room while I was out.

This place is in a great location, you can walk to everything, and that's about it. The rooms are run down and dirty, things don't work. The breakfast was bread for toast, waffles, and old bananas. The staff were either cranky or ignored us. We figured we'd save some money but with 3+ ratings were hoping for "quaint" or "charm" or "character." None of that. It's a place long declined and it's clear the owner either doesn't want to clean, paint, and do repairs or simply won't. Carmel is a wonderful place to visit, the Wayfarer is not the place to do it from!

So if your plan is to crash for the night this might do the job. Its located within walking minutes to tasting rooms and restaurants. Outside of this everything else is marginal at best.

Definitely NOT a 3-star hotel. Definitely NOT a 3-star hotel. Dirty carpet, chair w/ suspicious white stains, very shabby furniture, huge crack on the wall w/ a hole in it. Awful gross place.

On of the best locations with charming Carmel views. Property and amenities need serious upgrade though. Threadbare linens and lack of cleanliness. A good modernization of furnishing can hopefully make this a future gem.

Generally, there' s nothing that I can complain about, however my room nad a feel of bieg rather smallish. Location of the Inn was very Central on the otwór się, close to shops and restaurants. Staff was very friendly, indeks.

This hotel was very much as described. Small inn with friendly service. Spacious rooms with good location, close to shopping and restaurants.
