My family and I recently stayed at the Wayside Inn. Our room was recently updated and the room itself was very clean; however, the location of our room really made our stay not so great. Our room was located next to the employee's break room and had an entire night of disrupted sleep while we were there. Our room was...

Immaculate, conveniently located in downtown Carmel, and professionally run. We enjoyed a stay in a two room suite with full kitchen and gas fireplace. You order breakfast the night before that is delivered to your room at a time you choose. We selected a vegetarian quiche that was delicious. Snacks are available in the lobby as well as coffee, decaf,...

Fireplace, large bathroom with separate sink and coffee area so golf buddies playing at Pebble or the other courses could stay here also. Superb breakfast included in room. Would be nice...

Great location. Beautiful room with lots of space, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Breakfast is supposed to be served in the room but the first day they forgot and didnt bring what we ordered. The second day, they didnt forget but they brought everything wrong again. No flexibility in the check out time although the city was empty. The hotel...

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay. Our upgraded breakfast service is typically one of the highlights of our property for many of our guests, and it is clear we fell short with your experience. There must have been some miscommunication about check-out, as on the day of your check-out we did...
