My friend and I stayed here for a Girls weekend. It was a wonderful stay. We had breakfast included and tea with cookies in the afternoon. It was raining most days and when we got back from sightseeing in the afternoon, it was nice to come back to hot tea. In the evenings, sherry was provided. A fire in the living room was on all the time with lots of magazines and local newspapers to read. It was very inviting. It is a three block walk to the beach and about six blocks to downtown Carmel, uphill going, but downhill when you are tired and want to get back to the B & B.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Sea View Inn. We wanted something low-key and cozy and this was perfect. The staff was so nice and the rooms were very comfortable. We were on the top floor with a private bath and with the windows open you could hear the waves at the beach. I don't know how the sound is on the lower floors or about sharing the bathroom. Good breakfast in the morning. Location is good to either walk to shops/restaurants or to the beach. Great Experience! We will definitely return for more than one night!

We had a lovely time at the Sea View Inn. We only spent one night, but the service was great and the accomodations were quite nice. We stayed in Room 7, which was very spacious and the rate was reasonable. Breakfast was nice too!

What a lovely experience. My husband and I stayted at this tastefully decorated, quaint B & B for 3 nights August 30 thru Sept 2. Upon arrival we were greated by Brenda who was in the kitchen baking the goods for the morning breakfast it smelled delicious!!! She took great care of us, helped us get situated in our third floor room and offered us complimentary wine and cheese. That night we slept with our window open no screen ( I guess Carmel does not have any bugs) and listened to the waves crashing against the sand. The next two days we were treated like royality by Margo and Joy. Love these ladies. The service was terrific.
We paid $95.00/night and stayed on the third floor sharing a bathroom with another room. As unusual as this sounds to many for us it was a good experience. The shared bathroom (between two rooms) was large and clean. I actually never saw the other couple who were sharing the bathroom with us.
I cannot think of another place in Carmel-By-The-Sea that is as lovely and affordable as The Sea View Inn

Just stayed at the Sea View Inn for 2 nights on the 1st and 2nd July, the place is lovely. We had room 5 on the 3rd floor from the window you can just see the sea and can hear the surf really well. The beach is a 2 minute walk and the main street with all the quaint shops (Ocean Ave) is a short walk down lovely tree lined streets.

Joy was wonderful made us feel really welcome, afternoon tea on arrival, wine/sherry and cheese in the evening and a lovely breakfast all served in the lounge area which is a good place to relax, as is the front porch and the garden.

Will definately return.

It is 3 blocks from the beach and as carmel is a small and quiet town, one can hear the ocean waves crashing while sitting out on the porch.It is done up very beautifully and the owners are just as wonderful. One can entertain themselves playing various board games or reading, while relishing cheese on crackers and good wine. Rooms are nicely done. We came back feeling absolutely rejuvinated and much at peace. One can most certainly leave that place knowing that you'll definitely want to go again, Sea view inn has the calm needed from a holiday and has the feeling of luxury in a well maintained home.

Stayed at the Sea View Inn September 28-30. This place is a gem. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms but found it to be comfortable and very quaint....just like the town. The only regret is that we started our vacation here versus ending it here. This Inn is beautiful, clean, welcoming, and and good mix of attention and privacy. Joy and Margo are delightful hosts. We arrived at 5:00 p.m. to hot tea and biscuits, not to mention sherry and wine. I don't think that the website does this inn justice. I enjoy five star hotels so was a little worried about doing the B&B thing...my worries were put to rest as soon as we turned onto the quiant residential street just a block from the beach. We walked the beach before the lovely continental breakfast served in the parlor. The coffe was wonderful and the atmosphere surpased my expectations. I will return.
Please don't hesitate to book this Inn.
