Why We Love It

  • 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; walk to the beach in 15 minutes
  • 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

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 trees, a fire pit, a small waterfall and even a meditation garden 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.

Beds are too hard :(. And, the people above us walked around a lot which made for a noisy room. That's the only negative comment I have. Although, I would still go back I loved it that much.

Good location. Walk to shops, restaurants. Rooms are not large but are nicely appointed, and very clean. Met with a pretty orchid spray and chocolate covered strawberries in room, a nice touch. Room also had a mini fridge which was a nice surprise.

The room was beautiful, relaxing. The whole property is very tranquil and green. The staff was very helpful. It’s only 3 1/2 blocks from Ocean Ave. so a fun walk to all the action. We loved our stay here and will go again, for sure.

This is a well maintained property located near much of the best parts of carmel, just a block off the beaten path. Rooms could use a bit more sound insulating, but we were near a staircase.
