“comfort indeed and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I stayed here in Sept with 3 friends, for only one night. When I booked the motel it was really the only place in town available. I was a bit nervous as it seemed pretty cheap compared to other accomodation. I needn't have worried. The rooms were lovely and spotless. And the gardens were well cared for and the breakfast, which was included, was quite good.
The only reason I rated service as average is because the manageress was a bit grumpy. And also a bit skimpy with the teabags to take to the rooms!

We stayed her one nite while travelling the Pacific Coast Hwy. This was a nice property, the complimentary breakfast was decent. I would recommend, it was relaxing. They had a nice courtyard. Very close to town.

This is a great location if you want to explore Carmel and the surrounding areas. The rooms are Very clean, quiet, and the Manager is always willing to help with your needs or restaurant locations. Parking is a bit limited, but it did not interfere with my stay.

Our two night stay at Comfort Inn Carmel by the Sea exceeded all expectations. Our room looked like it had been recently remodeled while keeping a lovely cottage feel. The room was spotless, the breakfast buffet had lots of choices including eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt and an assortment of breads. The grounds were glorious with beautiful flowers. I've stayed at many Choice Privilege Hotels and wish they would all hold the same standards as Carmael by the Sea!

We drove from Reno to Sacramento, stayed overnight and then drove to Monterey/Carmel. We found the Comfort Inn purely by accident and wanted out of the stream of traffic on Route 1. We checked in early and enjoyed a bottle of wine and conversation with several other guests on the sunny patio. Parking was easy and the restaurants were within easy walking distance. Susie was very helpful. Our room was just delightful-- quiet, clean. My wife and I will stay here again on our infrequent trips to Carmel.

After a long drive down from SF , we didn't have anything booked to stay in as we weren't sure how far we would drive that day , We decided on Carmel as it a pretty little town . We called into the Comfort Inn and straight away the manager gave us a discount rate . The hotel is clean and comfortable . There's a complimentary breakfast served each morning which included sausage patties , eggs , waffles , cereal , toast , yoghurts tea and coffee . The hotel sits at the start of the ocean ave shopping district and makes it very easy to walk around the town .

Our stay in Carmel was very pleasant as we were given an early check-in! It was a Friday at 12noon and we had just arrived from Fresno, Ca. It made a huge difference to check in early instead of 3p. It allowed us not to worry about where to park our car and we could freshen up before we explored the downtown area. The location is excellent. It's at the top of Ocean Ave and is in walking distance to all the restaurants, galleries, shopping, the beach and even a grocery store (rooms have refrig). The room was modernly renovated but still had the charm of Carmel with a courtyard and flowers.
