In downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, close to shops and restaurants -- but a 20-minute walk to the beach
The Svendsgaard’s Inn is located blocks from the main shopping and dining areas of downtown Carmel. It is within easy walking distance to most of the town’s attractions, but you will have to drive or take a 20-minute stroll to get to the beach.
The tiny Svendsgaard’s Inn is located on the northern edge of Downtown Carmel, within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. It has 35 spacious and bright rooms with iPod docks -- but decor is a bit outdated (think flower bedspreads and worn carpets), and some feature tube TVs. However, most have fireplaces and big jetted tubs, and there a number of great freebies, including Wi-Fi, a hearty breakfast delivered to your room, off-street parking, and homemade cookies in the lobby every day.
