The hotel was absolutely adorable! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, the bed, pillows and sheets were comfortable, and the location of the hotel was perfect. The cost of the hotel was extremely reasonable and the free breakfast was wonderful. The only negative thing was the noise level. The walls are very thin and you... More

We had a great stay here. The room was clean, spacious, lots of space for storage, and everything is newish and decently updated. Parking here is somewhat limited so you might have to park your big pickup down the street. There unfortunately is no view from the room, but the location is very close to downtown. The walls are also... More

I was very impressed and surprised by the rooms, the beautiful landscaping and the great attention to detail and helpfulness by the front desk. The young gal at the front desk could not have been nicer and very helpful in helping us stay an extra night when they were almost fully booked. The owner obviously cares about this place and...

This motel is well located and a great value for the money compared to other lodging choices in Carmel. It is not fancy, but the rooms were updated and clean. Loved that we could open the windows to allow fresh air in the room. Grounds are beautifully landscaped. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel turned out to be in a fabulous location and was so quaint. It's hard to believe that it's a "chain" hotel. Room was small, but had everything you needed. Bathroom was updated and included all the amenities - hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Doesn't have a/c so lots of rooms had their windows open. Has a... More

It was OK for one night, friendly person at desk, easy location as others have mentioned, nicely updated, decent breakfast in a clean room with a fireplace. But remember that it is a motel, you are carrying bags up and down exterior stairways, and we were in a room down a very dark hallway. The lighting in the room was... More

Comfort Inns can sometimes be a little hit or miss but this one is bang on. Friendly staff and a warm welcome. Ideally located at the top of Ocean Drive with a reasonable amount of parking. Why pay any more when this place is exactly what is needed.

We enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was good since it included eggs / sausage. And they had a waffle maker. So it was heartier than the continental places. The parking lot is way too small for this place though. We happened to get a space but there's not enough spaces for rooms. They tell you to use neighborhood streets.... More

We needed a place along the coast during our road trip and found this place. Reasonable rate. Nice clean rooms. Close to everything in Carmel and a great continental breakfast. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again if in the area.

I just needed a place to crash for the night en route to LA, and found this place via trip advisor. The room was clean, there was free parking, free WiFi, and a (surprisingly awesome) complimentary breakfast. All things that fancy 5* hotels charge an arm and a leg for...
