Website advertises rooms at $89; we got there after midnight, parking lot NOT full, and they told us $98, but came down so we wouldn't leave. Though clean, the room was shoe-box size and the tv had 'No Signal', so no news or entertainment. There were only two outlets to charge devices, and one was ready to come out of... More

We were heading home from a 2 week trip to AZ and had planned to spend the night in Gilroy. I nearly always make reservations in advance, but we weren't quite sure what days we would be heading home, so decided to just call ahead the day of our arrival. We stopped in Salinas to call a hotel in Gilroy.... More

Much better choices out there. Rooms are small, everything feels dirty and in need of maintenance. Fitness center is gross and the machines don't work. They even cable the iron to the ironing board and the hair dryer to the wall. Makes you wonder how safe it is to leave anything personal there for any amount of time.

Stayed for an overnight as we traveled south. Pros: Heated indoor pool that my kids loved was very clean. Courteous front desk staff. Convenient to Highway 101. Clean room. Gas stations very close. Fridge in the room. Cons: Small room- OK As we were just overnight. Food nearby is all fast food. If you want something else get in the... More

Had business all week in this area of the state. I stayed at a couple of other properties closer to my appointments, but wished I had just stayed at this hotel the entire time. The front desk person was very helpful and nice. Rooms were large and the fitness center was sufficient. Overall, the hotel was very clean. Even the... More

We were driving though and visiting Carmel and Monterey area and this location was close. We stayed one night and the room was clean, nice size, and the girl at the front desk was very nice, pleasant, and accommodating. We left and planned to return to the area within the week so we booked here again.. On second visit, for... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights (26-29 September) while attending the World Superbike racing at Laguna Seca. I had booked the hotel almost a year ago, based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was very easy to find, right off the 101 highway, and despite being right on the 101 we didn’t notice any traffic noise whatsoever. The beds... More

We stayed here for our last night, and I used it as much cheaper than Monterey or Carmel to stay at. A nice clean room, good beds, good breakfast. My only negative comment - we had three of us in our room, and it was a bit cramped as there is so much built into the room, so with lots... More

Not the best, not the worst, this one is typical of the majority of Comfort Inns I have stayed in. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the rooms are decent size. The room I stayed in had a mini fridge, micro and ironing board so it makes it easy to have a few comforts both cold and warm. I... More
