Very nice hotel with helpful, friendly staff. They have partnered with a number of restaurants to offer their guests discounts, which was a pleasant surprise since dining in Carmel is expensive. Room 34 has a fantastic view. Only drawback was the lack of soundproofing; especially at the door to the adjoining room. Could hear conversation so clearly, could have joined in.

Great property, comfortable rooms, wonderful staff. Perfect location

We had a pleasant last Minute stay at this inn! Would stay again!

Our room was quiet and they brought breakfast to our door

Good location, plenty of restaurants in walking dustance, short drive to the 101 to get to other locations (big sur or Montetrey). Comfortable room, staff very nice and professional. Very pleasant stay.

Easy beach access close to town beautiful view frim our room

Good location but could use updating. Room was a little tired. Dog friendly. Seems like we were the only guests without one.

Great hotel and close to everything. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Nice and comfortable hotel. Friendly staff. Pet friendly but did not smell bad.

We really enjoyed our visit. Although the hotel is older the staff were great and we loved the fresh baked cookies and especially the breakfast brought to your room it was a nice touch. The pool is nice too. Not a far walk to restaurants and shops and the beach.

We checked out today- nice breakfast, fireplace and friendly staff. Also available for free parking and great distance to the downtown.

Accidentally sent payment to reserve a room for two nights while at work. Was interrupted but was aware that time was short. I had set up a couple hotels and rooms for a rental but didn't carry through on them. On this one I did. Within 5 minutes knew it was wrong if not faster, had one night and it was the wrong one. Called and asked if the day could be moved one day. No answer as nobody responded at the hotel. the Orbitz guy tried but I received nothing. The person said the hotel was not responding. Received a message from a manager and it was basically 'too bad' it is our money. If it was a longer time for me to see the error, ok. But in this case it was 5 minutes. This was very bad form with no interest in the customer, only wanted money. Horrible behavior

We were in Monterey for a dive trip and wanted a clean relaxing place with restaurants we could walk to. Svensgaard's fit the bill perfectly. Added bonus was the kitchenette where I could prepare my daily oatmeal. They place cooler of breakfast foods outside the door between 7 & 8 am with pastries, cold cereals, milk, canned juice, butter & jam. There is a Keurig in the room and they are happy to give you as many coffee cartridges as you like. Also brewed coffee in the lobby if you prefer. The pool was nicely heated and good for swimming short laps as well as playing as a family. We were warned that parking was limited but never had a problem getting a space. Some guests took advantage of the pet policy and brought their dogs. There was no obvious room damage or other impact from the pet-friendly policy for us. On our first night there was significant noise from the room above until about 10 pm but otherwise our room was quiet. There were warm chocolate chip and raisin oatmeal cookies in the lobby in the afternoon and evenings.

My girlfriend and I stayed here one night. We didn't spend much time at the hotel, but the room was fairly standard. It was small, but that didn't matter much to us, since we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. The staff was extremely pleasant, and very helpful when we checked in. They offered us a map, and had even baked cookies. The bed was comfy, but they could have used a second night stand, or an outlet near the beds for our phones to charge.

We go to carmel fairly often. We've stayed at several hotels, but have now started repeating ones we've stayed at before. Svengaards has a great location for downtown and is affordable. The hotel a has real parking lot, which is rare is carmel. The property is better kept than most of the other quaint inns.

Clean and cozy place within walking distance of Carmel's Ocean Ave, which has all the shops and restaurants. The staff was pleasant and the room was clean and comfortable.The walls are a little thin, so if you have a noisy neighbor, the noise will permeate, but otherwise it's quiet. They drop off a decent breakfast at your doorstep in the mornings, so there's no need to go to a common area to get breakfast.. the downside is that there is nothing warm/hot in the breakfast. I would recommend looking at Svendsgaard's Inn when you're making a reservation in Carmel.

WE have been staying in Carmel for years in normally sub par old rooms. We booked this last minute and were really happy with our large room, King with fireplace and kitchen, nice jacuzzi tub and shower. Close to walk to everything etc. We alaso tried their recommended restaurants Bistro Givanni for dinner and lunch at Grasings was amazing. The only thing missing was a hot tub. Staff was great! We will be back!

Pleasant stay overall. A little bit far from beach. I like the bed and BF delivery at door every morning...,, ...,,,,,,? ..,,,,...,,

Charming hotel in a great location. Also appreciated the 15 discount at The Bistro. Delicious
