    Very good

    We liked the relaxed style of the hotel and as the weather was very good, being able to eat breakfast outside

    We felt that the bathrooms could do with upgrading

    The staff was very nice, the price was very competetive, the location was superior, and all the facilities more than met our expectations. I would highly recommend Colonial Terrance to anyone looking for a charming and relaxing experience in Carmel By The Sea without all the distractions and overpriced alternatives.

    The rooms are in need of upgrading. They are a bit tierd. Upgraded furniture, carpet and a general freshening up would be great.

    The room was large and well furnished. The landscaping was beautiful, and the location close to the beach was great.

    Superb

    The Colonial Terrace is in a fantastic location - residential area and only a block from the beach. Downtown Carmel is about a mile away so you can walk there, too. Beautiful gardens give the Terrace a very relaxing and lovely environment. The linens, towels, and toiletries are all top notch.

    We were in a courtside queen room which is quite small. Barely enough room for the queen bed, plus a small desk which served as a dresser. Fireplace was nice. Bathroom also small. It made for tight quarters, but also encouraged us to go outside!

    Very good

    The location one block away from the beach was wonderful. The rooms comfortable and the gardens around the buildings were lovely.

    The breakfast buffet offered the same dull choices and quality as a chain hotel. Nothing fresh or tasty and the same every day.

    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

    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

    Good

    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????

    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

    Good

    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.
