Great location - we parked our car and walked everywhere. Quiet and INCREDIBLY clean room. Very comfortable beds. Breakfast was more than continental - make-your-own-waffles were big hit with our kids. Nice outdoor seating area with tables with umbrella. Friendly helpful staff.

Comfortable and reasonable place, right next to the shopping and eating downtown. Walking distance to the beach. A small grocery store around the corner. Good breakfast, attentive staff. Two thumbs up!

What an unusual place! Located a block from Carmel's shopping area, several blocks from Scenic Drive, it is a little charmer. Kind of old school, with outside entrances to each room, but with a lovely courtyard, ocean views from some top floor rooms. And Dutch doors on the rooms!? Small office area with the usual free breakfast. Parking was a... More

We stopped at this hotel on a recent family trip along the coast. The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming and offered tips on restaurants in the area...all of which were within walking distance from the hotel. The rooms were clean and the hotel grounds are covered in beautiful flowers. We will definitely plan another trip to Carmel and... More

This is probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in. Tiny microwave inside the TV cabinet. The towels were even smaller, requiring two bath towels to do the job when normally one would do. The bathroom itself, funnily enough, was actually normal in size. UPSIDE: Location is very convenient within the town. Shops are all around, including a deli market... More

This was the most beautiful Comfort Inn I have ever stayed at. The gardens were lovely and well cared for with comfy seats to enjoy the lovely climate outside. The room was spacious and attractive with many windows and a cross breeze. Breakfast was good with many tables available in the lobby and outside. I would highly recommend this hotel... More

We couldn't have asked for a better stay or location in Carmel. Excellent property condition. Assistance available onsite 24/7. The manager is wonderful!!! Great recommendations for meals, places to visit & shop. The breakfast every morning was good variety, proper temperature & tasty.

Great location, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and the beach. Friendly staff. Nice little patio to enjoy your coffee. Fairly quiet even though right on Main Street going into downtown. We would stay there again.
