Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was very accommodating at check-in and my room was ready ahead of schedule. Given the looming concerns of flooding in the Monterey/Carmel area, staff were also excellent at keeping guests updated on the situation and provided options with regards to staying/leaving. The property is in an excellent location and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay at the Wayside again if the opportunity arose.

Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We’ve stayed at Wayside numerous times over the years & like it. We had a gross plumbing/sewer issue that lowered my review. Also noisy neighbors next door & above, but not horrible. The accommodations are very nice & comfortable & better than a lot of places in the price range in Carmel. We were disappointed that breakfast was no longer included. Great location.

The suite was very comfortable and roomy. The kitchenette was well appointed. The only negative is that we could hear the people upstairs when they walked around, but it wasn't unreasonably loud.

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.

I like the suite concept over studio layout. The building was a bit noisy. You can hear creaks in the shower tub as well as walls.
