Discover the Rich History of Our Hotel
A retreat of peace and serenity since 1925, the Colonial Terrace sits in the heart of the exclusive “Golden Rectangle” residential neighborhood of Carmel-by-the-Sea, one of America's Favorite Beach Towns as published in Travel & Leisure. Travelers visiting our hotel in Carmel, CA are drawn by our personalized service and unmatched location.
The quaint and secluded property offers much more than a bed and breakfast. Each of our 26 guest rooms and suites are designed to blend the splendor of the California coast with all the usual comforts of home.
The hotel connects Carmelo St. with San Antonio St. through a series of grass and bricked terraces, offering an assortment of beautiful gardens, lawns and sitting areas, where guests are treated to a peaceful ambiance. Situated just 72 steps from the beach at Carmel Bay, guests anywhere on the property can hear the soothing sounds of the crashing waves nearby.
The Colonial Terrace is only a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Carmel Village and a quick drive to the renowned wineries of Carmel Valley and Monterey. When not exploring the beautiful California coast and surrounding areas, hotel guests may relax in the comfort of their room or suite, read a book or newspaper in our plush guest lounge or enjoy the sun and ocean breezes on one of our many private patios.
Guests also have the convenience of complimentary on-site parking.
