Stayed two nights here when heading down the highway 1. Carmel is a very Nice( bit Posh) with restaurants and cafes next door. Room was clean and nice, garden very cosy and pool nice and clean.

Just a few blocks from downtown, staff were very friendly, rooms spacious for Carmel, comfortable, clean and quiet. Really handy to have onsite parking (although it is first come first served, we didn't have any issues finding a space). The breakfast arrangement is a little unusual in that a small 'continental' selection of food items are delivered to your door...

We spent just a couple of nights, it was cold in the summer, but it was a very nice stay. Clean room, tub and amenities. And its is romantic too, with some rooms warmed by fire places. Main street with restaurants and shops in a walking distance .

Only reason why we stayed here was because we needed a pet-friendly place, as sister has a small dog. So I expected a smelly place, but surprisingly clean and comfortable, and location is central and conveneient. Only stayed one night.

We enjoyed our stay at Svendsgaard. The room was clean and the area quiet. It was hard to believe that it was dog friendly since you never heard a dog bark! We particularly enjoyed the breakfast delivered outside our door every morning by 7:30..juices, yogurts, fruits, Danishes, and a newspaper! The location was pretty good, we could walk to all...

The Svendsgaard Hotel in Carmel is a great find! It's reasonably priced, centrally located, quiet and the rooms are large, comfortable and come with a fireplace and separate jacuzzi. The staff are friendly and helpful. I couldn't fault this hotel.

Room should have been updated 10 or more years ago. Traveled with a dog & there were no treats, bowls nor bed for the dog. Cleanliness was not good. It would not be our recommendation/suggestion to other travelers. The tavern across the street - Brophy's - has great burgers and a terrific staff
