“Absolutely wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

We loved the coffee maker in the room! It was an upgrade than any in-room coffee maker I've ever seen. Very nice touch! The continental breakfast door service was just wonderful! i wasn't sure exactly what time to expect it and it was such a nice surprise opening the door and seeing the cooler waiting for us. When we checked in the cookies in the lobby were a nice welcome after a long drive and the hotel room was just gorgeous.

Our family spent three nights at the Wayside Inn, and absolutely loved our time there! We even extended our stay an extra night - we really enjoyed ourselves. The suite was perfect for us - we have a 3 yr old and a 7 month old, and there was enough space for all of us. The layout of the suite was especially good for our naptime requirements for the kids. The staff is extremely helpful. We will be back!

Room Tip: Room #10 was perfect for us. The 7 month old could nap peacefully, while the the rest of us spent t...

We had a great time. We have stayed in a lot of places in Carmel and this is our new favorite! We will definitely be back. Love the hot cookies in the lobby. Great touch!

Very clean, great location, wonderful bed. I was a little skeptical after reading some reviews of some unhappy customers of the Wayside but we were nothing but pleased with the inn. The breakfast wasn't wonderful and perhaps a voucher for breakfast somewhere else would be a nice idea but overall, we were happy. Yes, the room was pricey but it's Carmel, what do you expect? The room was very clean. Stay here, you will be happy. Just remember, some people are very never happy.

Fifty years ago, my husband and I began our married life together in Carmel. To honor these wonderful years of marriage, our family paid for our stay at the Wayside Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the first moment we stepped into the friendly office. The clerk even took pictures of us with my camera! It was fun!!! They even sent a bottle of bubbling apple cider to our room, in ice! We turned down the champagne as we don't drink, but they offered it. The suite was lovely and had everything that you could possibly hope for in order to enjoy a 3 night stay. Breakfast was served, right outside the door, in a little bag. Coffee was so delicious and their chocolate chip cookies just were the cherries on top of a great trip. Would we go back? Oh, yes!!! That's where we are planning our 100th wedding anniversary trip!!!!!

We stayed at the Wayside Inn while in town attending the MotoGP. The room had a French country feel and was quite cozy with a fire place and patio. I did feel the room description was a little misleading though. They described the premium king suite as having a living room with separate bedroom. It was really just one big room, the bed being 5 ft. from the dinning table and sofa. Staff was friendly, hotel was right downtown.

We made our reservation on the way to Carmel. The hotel website looked good so we reserved. We arrived late and stayed in a king size bedded room which looked onto the parking lot and another window looked into a stairwell. No deck or patio. Would be fine if
you didnt want to spend much time in the room. Wondered why they didnt give us a nicer room since the parking lot was not full and some rooms had patios. Breakfast was very unsatisfactory. Box of cold cereal, orange juice in a box, cold packaged pastriy and a piece of fruit. Not at all appealing. Desk reception was anything but warm and inviting when checking in and out. Wont stay there again. Usually like this hotel group but not this time.
