Very relaxing

3.6 on June 17, 2013

This is a lovely property. So many beautiful flowers. Very inviting check-in area. This is also our continental breakfast area which had a fireplace going. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was very large and had a great view of the ocean! Wish we had more time to be there and in Caramel.

Not pleased with this room and the amenities.

This room was booked with a "view of the beach". If you stood on one foot, and looked really hard you could see the ocean. The room was tiny. No place to really put your personal things but it did have a rickety old luggage rack. None of the furniture matched and it looked like it was furnished in the 70's with only 1 small chair at the end of the bed. The bathroom was 2 small rooms, one with the sink and then you had to go out and around to the other room to take a shower. For the price I expected a lot more than what we got. I would not stay there again.

Great weekend getaway place

3.8 on December 12, 2011

Very pleased with our recent stay. This was a last minute trip with a focus on efficiency and budget. Therefore we did not see the more expensive rooms but opted for a basic room only. The accommodations where absolutely sufficient and given more advance notice, we will likely return and pick the rooms with a view of the ocean. Breakfast was basic but sufficient, service was excellent (in our case it was simply room cleaning), the place was clean, well kept and very quaint. I would recommend to others looking for a B&B in the Carmel area, especially if you want to be near the water (1 block away).

Great getaway at the Colonial Terrace

4.2 on March 07, 2011

Came to the Colonial Terrace for a brief 2 day getaway and found a great place to stay. It is an older place with large rooms and sparse functional furnishings. The breakfast exceeded what I expected, the front desk was very helpful, and they even let me know of something I left behind and sent it to me via UPS. A very nice stay, very relaxing.

My wife and I spent two nights here for our anniversary, the location is great if you want to be close to the ocean, but away from all the traffic of the downtown area. The rooms were small, as expected, but the bed was the worst! We both woke up in so much pain both mornings, it was a strange combination of rock hard, but the left side drooped badly. The service was great at both check-in and check-out and the property is beautiful. Breakfast was basically a continental breakfast, but served nicely in a very relaxing room.
