Disappointed

We stayed at the Wayside Inn two nights and were seriously looking forward to our trip to Carmel. When we arrived, the rooms were filled with mosquitoes as if the front door or windows had been left open. We spent 30 minutes ridding the rooms of the mosquitoes. We experienced unusually noisy neighbors next door and above us who continued their antics until 1:00AM. We realize that the Wayside Inn is limited in what they can do about guests, however we will definitely see the signs the next time we find mosquitoes in the rooms, to find another Inn. The young lady at the front desk was seemingly inconvenienced by our checkout. This was not a pleasant experience. We will be staying at another location on our next trip to Carmel.

A Breath Of Fresh Air

My wife and I needed time away from the hustle and bustle of our week and decided to book one night at the Wayside Inn in Carmel. We had seen the inn on a previous visit to Carmel and decided to book the room. We booked a suite with two double beds, living room, kitchen and fireplace. The room was beautifully and tastefully arranged and decorated. No detail was missed and we were treated like royalty by the staff in the office. The suite was extremely clean and the comfort level from 1-10 (10 being the best) was a 10. It was heaven falling into the oversized plush bedding. We slept like babies and had a refreshing nights rest. We highly recommend this inn and we will be rebooking another mini-vacation very soon!
