The hotel website really inflated our expectations as we imagined big fluffy beds, sweeping views, soaking tubs, completely updated rooms, etc. our room was nice, but not "luxurious." We stayed in a Deluxe room with two queens, but maybe the King rooms were more "Deluxe." It wasn't clear to me on the website. Otherwise, the grounds were pretty and the...

This gem is in the perfect location in Carmel. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. The rooms are extremely inviting and spacious. There is a wonderful and peaceful garden area. Our bed was very comfortable! There was a balcony, fireplace, soaking tub, all the amenities you need. We left refreshed and full of peace!

My husband and I (and our dog) spent a few days at Tradewinds in November. The hotel is lovely, with spacious rooms, comfy beds, cozy fireplaces, and lots of zen touches. I loved the meditation garden and the outdoor fire pit. It's a short walk to the town and the beach. The staff is friendly and there's a free breakfast....

The hotel reception was friendly, the room was of a reasonable size, the location was good but I found this hotel to be quite confusing. We were in the middle of Carmel on the Californian coast yet the hotel should have been in Thailand/ Bali etc. that was its theme and decor both inside and out. Inside the decor was...

We loved our stay at the Tradewinds. The room is small but well decorated, asian style, and very comfortable. The location is perfect. The meditation garden is really enchanting. The breakfast time ( 8-10 am) was a bit restrictive, and we also had to check out exactly on time or penalties would have applied.
