Weekend stay in Carmel

4.2 on February 06, 2017

The staff was incredible. Great location.


Quick Trip with my wife made special by the staff and great room!

4.8 on January 31, 2017

my wife, myself and our two poodles decided to get away for a few days in carmel, doing like we always do and booking hotels last minute. we stumbled upon Tradewinds Carmel and called them up to see if they had any last minute specials. right off the bat they were super accommodating and warm. they offered us a great rate and were happy to have us join them. it really felt nice for a chance to be treated so great by a hotel staff that actually cares. check in was easy, we even introduced the pups to the staff. the stay was fantastic and they even brought us breakfast and a paper in the morning. this place was a absolute treat. we will without a doubt come stay here again. thank you everyone at Tradewindes for showing that there still is true Hospitality in the Hospitality industry!

A Dog Friendly Oasis

4.2 on January 30, 2017

We have stayed several times and the Tradewinds experience continues to be first rate. From the design of the rooms to the beautiful gardens to their friendly staff. We really enjoy Carmel and will stay at the Tradewinds again next time!


Great Place to Say in Carmel

4.6 on January 16, 2017

We stayed in the Poet's Suite. This is our third stay at The Tradewinds. The decor is zen and tropical. It's conveniently located to the ocean and the stores, but a bit of a walk which I like. Walking in Carmel is the best. The staff at the hotel are warm and welcoming and the bed and linens are like no other. I slept better there than I do at home.


Great Hotel/Motel

4.6 on January 04, 2017

This was our third stay at the Tradewinds. This is by far the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We splurged and stayed in the Poet's Suite. It's lovely. The Tradewinds is a bit further from Ocean Avenue and the beach than many of the other hotels, but it's worth the extra walking. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and the cookies in the lobby are the best. We love staying here and will be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your continued loyalty and thoughtful review! Our cookies and staff look forward to welcoming you back.


Wonderful Place to Stay

4.0 on November 29, 2016

This hotel is just a few blocks north of the main street in Carmel-by-the-Sea, which means you get quiet rest at night and a quick jaunt to everything by day. The hotel is just lovely, and has the feel of a 4 or 5 star hotel. The staff are gracious and kind. The only downside is there's not much parking (though I never had trouble finding street parking) and the included breakfast is fairly basic: starbucks coffee, yogurt, fruit, various breads/bagels to toast, and hard boiled eggs. Not a hot breakfast. They did include soy milk, to go cups for the coffee, and trays in case you want to bring items back to your room, which is lovely. But Carmel has so many lovely restaurants it's really better to get out there, get a cup of coffee, and get to the beach.


Comfortable and the staff was great!
