“A few days in Carmel...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a nice little Inn. It is ideally located, just steps away from downtown Carmel. Yet, it is just far enough from downtown that it is very quiet. I basically parked the car for a few days and was able to walk throughout town.

The parking lot is very small and will not hold all guest vehicles. However, there is parking available on the street in front of the hotel.

My room was very clean and everything was relatively up to date. The bed was comfortable and the room did come with a safe to store valuables.

The only drawback is that the walls are very thin. As a result, you can easily hear your neighbors in the adjacent rooms.

This is the first accommodation I've tried in this area and would have no problem returning if my travels take me back to Carmel....which has great shopping and restaurants!

We recently stayed here and were very pleased with the rooms, location and staff. We arrived very late our first night and Susie the manager stayed past the office closing time to give us our rooms. The location could not be better, across the road is a deli store with everything you could possibly want. We brought food from there and sat out in the courtyard at the hotel.

We have been remiss in sending this review from our visit in March, so here it is.

My husband had a major birthday on St. Patrick's Day, and we decided to come out so he could play a round of golf at Pebble Beach. We really wanted to stay in Carmel, had not been back in several years but remembered how nice it was just to walk to restaurants, shops, and the beach. We found this hotel right off Ocean Blvd. and it turned out to be a great spot for us. Stayed four days. Each day breakfast was included, which was very convenient. It is also close to a grocery store. The hotel is very well managed, the rooms are small, but very well appointed. Very clean as well! If you book a room for two people, it would be hard to add more people or beds; we left our golf bags in the car. There is some parking available, first come first serve. The Inn is very efficiently run. We saw the lady everyday and it is clear she keeps and eye on everyone and everything. We felt safe and comfortable. The last night we changed our room to the only suite, and it was spacious and nice, with a private seating area outside. There is a courtyard with outside seating, nice area to share a glass of wine. Lots of flowers everywhere. We would enjoy to stay here again.

This hotel is very pretty and all you need for an over night stay. It is located on the main street towards the outside of town. The rooms are clean and well stocked, Keith a coffee maker and bath. I would not stay longer as the rooms were very dark and walls thin. The breakfast was limited with the strangest burger and flat rubber eggs. By the way don't arrive early as your room will not be available.

I booked early and was able to get the King Bed Suite (room 58). It is a large room with fireplace. Even though it was mid July, the evenings get cool on the coast and we enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was standard (waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal, eggs). Parking can be a little difficult, only 6 spots in the lot, and the street parking was always full. But we parked in the lot when we checked in and never moved the car for 2 days. Everything is within walking distance.

My and husband and I have been visiting Carmel by the Sea for more than 20 years. Our stay at the Comfort Inn was one of the best we've had. Susie, the proprietor, had a lovely room for us and was able to meet our every need. We needed extra sheets, an extra blanket, and some extra towels. She made sure our every need was met! The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The dutch doors allowed for extra ventilation in the room while the baseboard heater kept us warm and toasty on cool nights. We've stayed at many different places during our trips to Carmel. As a great value, this is by far the best and included a microwave and small fridge. Many thanks, Susie, save us another great room because we will be back!

Don't get my title wrong. The rooms were clean, the help was helpful, the breakfast was included. And I would go back again if I were just traveling as a couple. As we needed 2 rooms we need to keep the price down. But again everything was good. Very convenient location, parking was a little tight but that's an FYI, not a problem.

Please be aware that there are some steps involved on the location, so crutches are fine, but wheelchairs, I would think, are problematic.
