Tradewinds Carmel Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Carmel, California, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • No fitness center or spa (in-room spa treatments are available)
  • First-floor rooms hear bulk of second-floor noise
  • Rooms have old-tube TVs

Bottom Line

The 28-room Tradewinds Carmel has a Zen vibe throughout the hotel -- from the courtyard, complete with Buddha statues, a small waterfall, and a tranquil fire pit, to the rooms, decorated with Asian prints, stalks of bamboo, and orchids. The rooms are large and feature well-decorated bathrooms with nice soaking or Jacuzzi tubs, but like many small hotels in Carmel, the Tradewinds lacks a fitness center and a spa (though in-room spa treatments are available). Those looking to be closer to town and the beach may consider the Wayside Inn (though its decor is not as nice as the Tradewinds'.)
