  • Thin walls means neighborly noise can be bothersome

Bottom Line

The 22-room Wayside Inn is a motel-style building with a parking lot in the front that slightly cheapens its facade. But despite the first impression, the inn is quaint and charming -- ivy climbs the brick walls, many rooms have balconies, and pretty flowers line the walkways. The rooms don English-cottage decor, which can feel either cozy or tired, depending on your taste. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and iPod docks, and many have fireplaces. But the real highlight of the hotel is its downtown location -- just don't expect much in the way of extra amenities.

Oyster Hotel Review


In downtown Carmel, a 15-minute walk away from Carmel Beach

Located on a beautiful tree-lined street in downtown Carmel, the hotel is situated in an area that offers a charming, quaint vibe with plenty of restaurants, bars, and cute shopping boutiques within walking distance. With the free off-street parking, it's the perfect place to park the car and walk to explore the area. While the beach isn't immediately accessible (it's about a 15-minute walk), it's still fairly easy to get to, especially if guests opt for taking the car.
