We were travelling from San Francisco to Los Angeles and decided to stay in Monterey ,to not make the trip so exhausting. The place itself is nice,tidy and next to Carmel, which is a dream came true. The beach surrounded by ordinary houses ,wonderfully gardening and the surfers enjoying the waves ,was a terrific experience. The hotel was clean and... More

We were pleased with all aspects of our stay here. I have never been to a Comfort Inn with as many flowers around the property. The flowers put an immediate smile on your face. The staff are competent, friendly and helpful. For an older property, the rooms are very nice. Breakfast was good, with many choices (blueberry waffles were yummy).... More

If you're female and a minority traveling solo, I wouldn't recommend this Hotel. The male front desk clerk was rude, and sarcastic. Only after addressing the behavior did he behave better, but even then, he tried to engage in small talk and wanted to know details about my Business - intruding on my privacy. I didn't want to engage in... More

Dear Shabana, Please let me sincerely apologize for the negative experience you had checking into our hotel. Our front desk clerk was simply doing his best to be affable and engaging. He does very well with most of our guests and certainly after a long, hard business day that level of familiarity with a stranger can be aggravating and uncomfortable... More

The breakfast was very good with lots of variety and the staff member overlooking the breakfast service was very helpful and cheerful.

Enjoyed our stay. Great mid-range accommodations. Caution, this hotel is a 15 minute walk from the wharf, however, easy driving access to 17-mile drive, Carmel and Pebble Beach. All in all, great location.

Very affordable and comfortable for the price. The breakfast is not very good but convenient. Don't expect much. During our stay, power outages occurred on the city block and weren't really the fault of the Comfort Inn. They lasted a long time but luckily it was late at night.
