Reviewed 15 May 2012

this is a great bed and breakfast with wonderful attention to detail - they really make you feel at home... hats off to Chris at the desk and Linda in the kitchen.. great spot, and an easy walk to downtown and the bars/ restaurants.

This is my third visit to this place and I absolutely love it! We were upgraded to a room with a fireplace, at no extra charge. May is the best time to come...not very busy at all. Wonderful service with the breakfast and the room! Hope to have a fourth visit in the future!!

Room Tip: Stayed in Room #4 with a fireplace and sitting area. Lovely!

The Sandpiper is definitely my choice for a hotel in Carmel. You can hear and/or see the ocean from many of the rooms and a trip to the beach is 2 short blocks. It is about a mile from Ocean Ave and the main crowds so shopping and restaurants are close but not too close (I don't like crowds on my vacations). The staff is frendly, knowlegible, and helpful for directions, suggested eating spots, etc. The place is newly renovated so the Google street map doesn't do it justice. The food is great and I always found a parking spot (great for Carmel!). If you want to walk or run on the beach this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Try one of the 2nd floor rooms for an ocean view. Room 6 is my favorite. Bring a flashlight if you w...

Just a block from the beach - my room even had a view across rooftops to the water - the sound of the waves made a sweet surf lullaby. Each room has a distinct shabby chic decor. Breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious. The one downside is that property is a bit away from the center of town - with the narrow and unlighted streets it takes a few days to figure out routes to and from. The staff at the inn is very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room facing the water.

A sweet, comfortable, elegant, and friendly Inn. The staff was friendly, and very accommodating. The rooms were decorated lovely and the Linens were soft. Food was excellent. The view was great, and parking was easy. All around delightful place to stay.
