The staff at Wayside Inn are incredibly friendly, courteous and thorough in their service - from the call to book to the check-in staff to the breakfast delivery. Excellent service. The Inn is well maintained and has that charm you're expecing from Carmel. The rooms are spacious - huge living room with fireplace and a king size bed and a...

Thank you for your review and for your recent stay with us. We offer a variety of room types, and it sounds like you had the perfect suite for your girls’ getaway. Carmel is known for being very dog friendly, however we have found many guests such as yourselves prefer our pet and smoke free accommodations in order to avoid...

Wayside Inn was great! A nice modern take on a B&B with big rooms and breakfast delivered to your room. Arrived late and got upgraded to a beautiful room with a fireplace. The room was so comfortable we did not want to leave the next morning and got an extended check out from Tanya, who also made a great dinner...

I did a ton of research to find an excellent Carmel downtown hotel and the Wayside Inn ended up being just perfect. The location couldn't be better in terms of walking downtown. The room we had was very spacious. The bed was soooo cozy and soft. I also appreciated that the grounds were immaculate, and other than a little noise...

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Inn looked pretty and was in a good location close to Ocean with parking. While unpacking I noticed my daughter's feet (she is 3 and likes to go barefoot) were getting dirtier and dirtier. So were her pants. Within an hour of being in the room she was so filthy that I...

We contacted this guest via TripAdvisor, and I was able to speak with her over the telephone. It was a challenging conversation. I explained that both the Inn Manager and I personally inspected the room after she checked-out, and my observations, and the testing we performed, did not reveal any indication of the carpet being dirty, or the possible source...

This is our second time at the Wayside Inn. My rating of 3 is truly more like a 3.75. The quaintness, location, size of rooms, and amenities are hard to beat. But, I do feel the inn needs a refresh to be brought to the level of 4 to 5 inn. The inn is cozy, and has large suite rooms...

One block from Ocean Ave, this location can't be beat. But what makes the Wayside truly special is the high quality of room, service, and breakfast (delivered to the room). We stayed in a suite with a lovely fireplace and full kitchen (although the variety of dining options in Carmel make the kitchen less useful than in other places). From...

The biggest positive about the Wayside is that it is one of the few places in Carmel, let alone downtown that doesn't have a 2 night minimum on the weekends! Being only a little over an hour from Carmel it is nice to just get away for the weekend without having to spend $300 to stay Friday night bc of...
