Why We Love This Hotel

  • With a Zen theme and meditation garden, this 28-room hotel is best suited for couples or those seeking peace and quiet
  • The hotel is three blocks from shops and restaurants along Ocean Avenue — the beach is a 15-minute walk
  • For a small inn, the rooms are quite plush, with goose-down feather beds and high-end furniture (featured in Architectural Digest)
  • A free buffet breakfast of pastries, bagels, fresh cut fruit and yogurt is served each morning, giving the inn a B&B feel

"Very quaint with total Zen vibe. Huge room (we had King) with sizable patio, clean and upscale bath. Excellent service and continental breakfast are a plus. We will visit again."

Tucked away on a downtown side street, Tradewinds Carmel provides a Zen-like oasis with its Asian-influenced design and Pacific Ocean breezes.

Featured in Architectural Digest for its East-meets-West décor, the property is built around a central courtyard dotted with birds of paradise, a fire pit, a small waterfall and even a meditation garden in which to unwind.

The Asian theme extends into each of the 28 rooms, which are adorned with kimono robes, bamboo details and orchids, as well as luxuries like high-end linens, silk pillows and organic bath products. In-room Wi-Fi is complimentary. Like most hotels in the area, rooms do not have air conditioning, so sleeping with the windows open is usually the way to go.

Take advantage of the complimentary buffet breakfast, which can be delivered in-room if desired. The hotel lacks an on-site spa or fitness center, but there is a massage team available for in-room massages with advanced booking.

With a prime location in downtown Carmel, the hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the dog-friendly Carmel Beach and about a 15-minute drive from the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium. There are also many walking, running and hiking trails within miles of the hotel.

Lovely, quiet room with great amenities. Close to everything in town. One of my favorite hotels in Carmel!

The staff was exceptionally helpful. Because of our age, the stairs to the morning buffet not an option, & the kind employee carried a tray to the room. The hotel is on a hilltop, so with our situation, a walk to town downhill/uphill was not possible. The biggest plus is how very quiet it is being just a few blocks from Ocean Avenue. It was worth getting the car to drive down

All was fine, primarily with the friendliness of the staff standing out most. It was unfortunate to have the people in the room above us be so noisy. From 8am for a good 90 minutes or so, they were heavy footed waking around their room, at what often felt non-stop. Seriously, unsure why anyone needs to walk around their room that much, making so much noise. It was a bit of a bummer when wanted to sleep in, and would be the reason I may hesitate staying here again. It was especially odd, as it didn’t seem the hotel was full, so why put us under another occupied room? Oh well.
