We visited (and loved) Carmel last year, but the hotel we stayed in have raised their prices by a ridiculous amount (Interesting to see they have vacant rooms this year). Svensgaard is almost next-door to that particular venue, and very similar in style. It is a motel style accommodation with well kept garden and swimming pool surrounded by 36 rooms....

The breakfast was so adorable! That was a great feature, plus there was more than enough food for the two of us and we could take what was left with us during the day for snacks. The pool was also really nice.

Svengaard's Inn was simply excellent. The room was comfortable and very clean. The garden was also very pleasant. The continental breakfast in a cooler outside the door is a great idea for folks that want to relax and not have to get up in time to get breakfast at a restaurant. Overall, I would definitely recommend Svengaard's Inn to anyone...

Svendgaard's which has been around a while has joined forces with other inns along the Central Coast as Inns by the Sea. So though we had never stayed at S. before, by staying at their sister property in Capitola we were suddenly sent an offer for the off-season that we couldn't turn down. So with two dogs and of course...

This is the place I choose to stay when I come to Carmel. I usually bring my pup and Svendsgaard's Inn is pet-friendly. They even have a grassy area for your dog.
