Overall we were very satisfied with our stay, here are a few comments: 1) the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful 2) We had two rooms and both were clean and nicely kept up 3) rather expensive for a Comfort Inn but given the location this is not surprising 4) breakfast is mostly "plastic" pre-prepared breakfast foods (typical of...

I was so impressed by the cleanliness of this hotel room! It is modest and nothing fancy, but comfortable and nice. The bed, bedding and pillows were also great. The room was a little bit too light for me in the morning. I would recommend darker window shades. Overall, a nice room and would stay at a Comfort Inn again

I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh, bright and clean our room was. It appeared the facilities had been updated/renovated and they did a great job. The room size was adequate, having an additional chair. It also had a microwave and small frig by the sink. the A/C worked very well. the bed was very comfortable. For the nice furnishings... More

It's an old-style cheap motel but they've added nice modern amenities -- the bed, pillows, bathroom. It's clean, microwave and frig in the room. The furniture is pretty cheap tho. Pretty nice hot breakfast in the little lobby. You wouldn't confuse it for an upscale place but it's much cheaper than the hotels in the area and was just fine.

I don't normally stay at a Comfort Inn but all hotels in the area were sold out. The staff at the Inn was pleasant but the accommodations were fair at best. The carpet in my room was worn and the room was not very clean. A continental breakfast was offered but I didn't partake because I had to depart very... More

This motel offers the usual features expected of a Comfort Inn. It is an older motel that has been remodeled to current standards. There are a number of similar older motels, most now remodeled, lining El Camino in this same area. Of these, the comfort Inn seems to be the top choice is that the rates are lower than most...
