    Clean, reasonably priced, nice staff, good location for beach

    I personally felt the room was for an older person (60+) because of the general decor. However this is a personal preference and not a complaint. The bed was still nice, White sheets etc

    nice scenic location, room beautifully furnished, good breakfast for american standards

    Expensive for the services offered, no desk or table at all, no shower caps shower device is fixed and not practical

    The location is great. The grounds are beautiful, very quiet, and there was ample parking. The bed linens are new and the beds are very comfortable. There is an inviting continental breakfast in the reception area.

    We booked a deluxe king ocean view. Upon arrival, we were given a tiny queen room in the back of the complex, with the explanation that the deluxe room overbooked online and we were then assigned this room. After many requests for something else, we were moved to an ocean view suite for our second night's stay. Though the room was bigger and had a magnificent view, both rooms are old and tattered. We felt like we were victims of the bait and switch, with the confirmation of one room and the switch to another. And the rate we paid for the small queen room was the same as our neighbor's large suite. Though we were given a reduced rate on the suite for the second night, and the manager was very helpful, she was not apologetic for what happened

    Its greatest attraction is the immediate proximity to the ocean.

    it would have been nice to have a hot tub; continental breakfast was okay, but for over $300 a night, I just expected a little bit more --- maybe afternoon cookies or wine and cheese????

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Bed was good, sea view good

    Dated decor, room smelled fusty and old. Seriously needs a makeover. Breakfast poor, coffee weak and generally the place seemed smug and over regulated

  • Couple
    6.4

    The outdoors of this hotel is very beautiful, with tables and couches and lots of flowers. Very close to the ocean but a bit far from the center of Carmel-by-the-sea, you need a car to go there.

    Our room was quite small and had a bad smell, coming from the closet! Also furniture is quite old. It's much prettier from the outside than from the inside. Windows were a bit dusty, especially the bathroom window. Breakfast was disappointing, only pastries, jam, fruit, granola and milk - not what we expected for the price of the room.

    Very nice staff, comfortable bed, nice breakfast. Right near walking trail.

  • Older travelers

    Pretty well everything! The Colonial Terrace is beautifully situated near the beach. Carmel is delightful, if almost too perfect. The staff could not have been more helpful and the rooms are individual and tastefully furnished - such a pleasant change from characterless chain hotels. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and would love to stay there again ourselves.

    A very minor criticism but not all rooms (we had two different ones because we liked the Colonial Terrace so much we extended our stay) have a desk or table to write on or use a laptop.

    Location was great. The cookies upon arrival tasted great and were a nice gesture.

    The "standard" rooms were very run down - peeling wall paper, with musty smells. These rooms are right on the street so they are loud and you can hear what is going on in the other rooms as well. I would not recommend the "standard" rooms to anyone - especially not at the price they were listed at ($139).
