Newly remodeled, with updated bedding ( very comfortable, and fresh ) and quiet surroundings, great breakfast in the morning. close to restaurants and shopping and less than 10 minutes from Carmel. The Fisherman's Wharf is just down the street which has several great restaurants.

We stayed here for one night in January while driving down the coast. The room was clean and the beds average. Breakfast was excellent. The food was hot and there was a good selection. The Inn was a very short walk away from the mall where the P.F. Changs was.

I stay here with my kids, is just a 5 minute drive from the harbor, breakfast is good, as allways avoid the crow if you wake up early because the room is small with few chairs and tables. I stay here on my way to San francisco

Dear Pedro E, Thank you for the great review! Our delicious complimentary hot breakfast is a delightful way to start your day. With all the wonderful sites to see here in Monterey, having a complimentary breakfast before you head out just starts the day off right. We hope you had a safe trip to San Francisco.

I stay here pretty regularly, traveling up and down highway 1 on my motorcycle. This place is fantastic. Always clean, always inexpensive, and the staff is always great! It's an older property, but it's not "run down" at all. Expect clean and comfortable accommodations, a friendly staff, and great rates all the time. (Especially in Monterey, where hotel rooms can...

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The internet service was OK...not great but OK. The fitness room was OK but they sometimes did not unlock it in the morning and they often left it without towels. The breakfast was good but the understaffed the kitchen area at busy times.

We had a strange stay here. First of all, I think this used to be 2 different motor inns that make up the current Comfort Inn. The landscaping is lovely and they've made the best of what they started with. We were in room 112, which is near the office in a one-story part of the property. We had a... More

We were three adults traveling to Monterey for two nights. When we booked this hotel on the hotel's website, the major draw for this room category was was the description which stated "Two hotel rooms".

Dear Exchange Teams, I’m sorry to hear you had an issue with our room configurations. Our two bedroom guest rooms are just that, two bedrooms. Not two separate hotel rooms. They do share a bathroom, as they are not two bedroom, two bathroom rooms. These rooms work wonderfully for larger families who want to stay in the same room while... More
