What a wonderful relaxing treat! From the moment that you walk into your room the understated luxury is apparent. Dark wood with Asian styling, spa like amenities in the bath and luxury linens. The room is a wonderful oasis of calm after the bustle of touristy Carmel. We had a room with a balcony and a partial ocean view. The...

What a pleasant, wonderful place. Excellent, friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful grounds. Our room had a fire place, and lovely Balinese touches. Lovely continental breakfast. I'm in the hospitality business, and I'm jealous, these people really have got it right.

The Tradewinds is unknown to many travelers headed into the Monterey Peninsula area, but it shoudn't be. It is a very fine facility, within walking distance of everything in downtown Carmel, with many ocean view rooms and a great staff. Their are many quite famous properties nearby, including the Lodge at Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay, the Highlands Inn, Tickle Pink...

We love our guests from Fresno! We have quite a few repeat guests who travel from Fresno during the summer to get away from the heat. Thank you so much for your kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and you are right, we don't advertise much so we are not high-profile. We depend on word of...

This was a very last minute booking indeed and what a joy. Everything about this place is great. The staff, generous size bedroom, décor and ambience. It was just very unfortunate that we only managed to spend a very quick over night stay but would not hesitate in staying here again. This little gem is a lot better that some...

We stayed in this hotel in December and we have been really impressed by the rooms. The fireplace was great. The room was perfect, the mattress was absolutely great. The choice of food for breakfast was great and organic. Real cottage cheese, fresh fruits, fresh bagels and croissants. The service was great too.

I must say the staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. I wanted to take a drive along the coast and the person at the front desk mapped it out for me and marked attractions down and the drive and places were simply breath taking. The recommendations for local restaurants were perfect. My room was perfect. Amazing bed, fireplace, bathroom...

Thank you and "Sweetie" our rescue cat says thank you, too! After almost 55 years in business under the same family ownership, we still shouldn't be such a "hidden" gem, but we are learning gradually how to come into the electronic age! We could use help on social media!

This is like other Carmel hotels - built many years ago yet this one has been updated nicely. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. You're 3 blocks from Ocean Ave, the main drag. Breakfast is good, and included. The staff is very very nice.

My mother, her dog, and I stayed here last spring. They were very accommodating and friendly in the office, and it was an easy walk to the room, which was spacious, with a little kitchenette, and a nice big tub (can't remember if there were jets--I think so). We had two balconies, and I slept on a fold out couch...
