this motel was very nice, room was very nicely decorated. Owners were very nice, and the breakfast was decent. We enjoyed our stay although only one night and if ever in Carmel again would definitely stay here.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Carmel, CA from June 13--15. The manager, Gita, and all of the staff, went out of their way to insure that our stay was excellent. Although the king bed room was very small, it was extremely clean and the bed was so comfortable. The hotel is so close to shopping, restaurants, and the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Carmel Comfort Inn in early June 2015 to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We stayed 2 nights at the Comfort Inn during our Carmel stop and loved it. The rooms were updated and had free breakfast/wifi/parking in a great location.

The upscale bohemian vibe of the village of Carmel-by-the Sea is a must see/stay. This Comfort Inn is a nice smaller hotel that feels like a boutique hotel despite the chain name. The location is one of the best for walking to the sea, shops, exploring the quaint town area. I particularly liked the garden courtyard and patio area that... More

A great little hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea! Centrally located, clean and includes breakfast and wifi! Great value. Crib was free of charge. And free on-site parking. There is a microwave, small fridge and coffee maker in the room which are all very handy. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely stay!

We stayed two nights at the Comfort Inn on our way from San Francisco to LA. The hotel is very well located for all the lovely restaurants and shops in Carmel. The hotel has a nice privately owned hotel feel rather than a chain. Great rate and wifi is free and breakfast included.

The location was great. It was only a block from the restaurants and shops in Carmel. Breakfast was included which was a plus. Even hot waffles. There was a small patio with nice flowers and landscaping where sat for some afternoon wine that we got in town. The room was clean and updated with microwave and mini fridge. The staff... More

My 3 sisters and I shared a room with two double beds. The room was very clean, there were plenty of towels, and we had everything we needed.
