10/10 Exceptional

Quaint & Comfortable
I only stayed for a night, but I found the Wayside Inn absolutely charming and delightful. My king room was small but not cramped and very comfortable. Service at the front desk was friendly and efficient. The location is fantastic - it's a block away from all the shops and restaurants on Ocean Avenue, and a lovely half mile walk to the beach.

Great location for walking Carmel. Super clean, friendly service. Gas fireplace for cool evenings. Getting hot water to shower was a problem. Bathroom was a wierd design requiring walking past it with no door to get from living room to bedroom. Had to declare “ I’m going potty” and close living room and bedrooms doors for privacy. But it was a renovated apartment and that’s just the way it works. Super comfy beds. I’d stay again even with the peculiar bathroom layout.

4/10 Fair

The bed was very uncomfortable. It had a dip in the center, so it was impossible for 2 people to sleep comfortably. The sofa and chair in the suite were also very uncomfortable. The sofa sagged when you sat on it and the chair was stiff and hard and shaped so you had to sit very upright. All of the front doors in the area we stayed in had to be slammed to shut properly, so we constantly heard door slamming, especially at night. Would not recommend.

8/10 Very good

Pros: perfect location 3 minute walk into village for dining, shopping, browsing art galleries, but just far enough away to avoid any street noise from village. Double paned windows. Easy parking. Large rooms. Cons: very dated/tired furnishings and room decor and design; seemed at least 30 years old; room also had a dank smell that could only be cured by leaving windows open. Sign of the times, but 25 years ago you would have called this a budget motel. Now it's $400/night. Cheap only in comparison to the nicer places down the street.
