“Romantic Get Away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

This property is beautiful! Tucked away just a few blocks from downtown Carmel in a residential area. Quiet and peaceful with wonderful amenities. You will not be disappointed. Rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff is wonderful. Continental breakfast is tasty, with lots of fresh fruit, granola, bagels and pastries. A great weekend get away!

Room Tip: Room #1 is great, with no one above you.

The Tradewinds was the best place I have ever stayed in Carmel by the Sea. From our first view of the property, to checking in, to the room and also the breakfast room - we were enchanted. We were just a few blocks from the main part of town - very close to some great restaurants and shopping. The breakfast buffet which was included in the price was quite substantial. I would definitely stay here again. It made our trip lots more enjoyable. Thanks to all the staff.

This hotel is nice and overall we were happy with our stay. They don’t have AC in their rooms leaving me and my husband pretty uncomfortable during our stay. They did offer a fan, but that wasn’t enough. The bed was uncomfortable and we didn’t get that relaxing vacation we were hoping for. The place is pretty tranquil, just off the downtown area and totally walkable. The manager e-mailed me and told me that they had replaced the feather bed we stayed in, so maybe it was just our room. Their continental breakfast was pretty good. There is plenty of parking and the staff was really nice. The bath tub is just a normal bath tub (a little larger) with jets, it’s not a Jacuzzi tub . Oh, I would recommend staying on the top floor, if you can, we could hear EVERYTHING above us. Overall I liked the hotel, if you don’t like the bed, let them know, they seemed to have a very easy fix.

Room Tip: Upstairs are best!

Thanks for staying with us here at Tradewinds. Our staff really appreciated this post in particular! We do apologize about the lack of AC. It has been an unusually hot Fall. Truth be told, I don't know if any hotels in Carmel that have air conditioning in the rooms. Hopefully we will see you next time.

We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at Tradewinds, and while it was a lovely hotel, it was overpriced at $413 per night. We did have one of the nicer rooms, a deluxe king with ocean view, but that view was looking out over the rooftops of surrounding neighborhood and therefore not a view worth paying extra. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. I loved the bathroom with it's very nice tile and Aveda amenities, and appreciated the nice towels. I also liked the little water fountain and the built in cabintry and fireplace. The rooms are not air conditioned (but I understand none of the hotels in Carmel have AC). The garden area was nicely done, and parking was sufficient and included in the price of the room. It is a very convenient location for walking around Carmel and an easy walk to some very nice restaurants, (our favorite was Casanova). The ladies who run the hotel were very nice and seemed happy to help with dinner reservations/directions. A small breakfast of pastries, fruit, yogurt, bagels, etc. was included. The chocolate covered strawberries in the room at check-in was a nice touch. Overall, I would stay there again, hopefully at a better rate. Also, they have a 7-day cancellation policy that made me a little bit uncomfortable. I would have felt better about a 24 hour cancellation like most hotels of this caliber. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the price for what was once an old motel that has been very nicely rennovated to have a modern, spa-like feeling.

Room Tip: Would recommend the top floor for the vaulted ceilings and not having noise above you, unless you ha...

Our four night stay here was fabulous! The newly renovated hotel includes rooms with the finest appointments and the outside terraced garden with fountains and fire pit is so peacefully relaxing. The breakfast features the finest pastries I have ever had at a restaurant or hotel. Obviously locally made and delicious. We will definitely choose this hotel for our return visits to Carmel. It is within easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Carmel by the Sea. Parking is available but was cramped for our full sized rental car. The office staff were exceptionally helpful and the fresh baked cookies a very pleasant plus.

Room Tip: We had room 15 top of stairs, quiet and lovely.
