“A True Gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

On a recent girl's weekend we fortunately found this local gem. Crazy clean and beautifully maintained, with a fabulously comfy bed in an albeit smallish room. Very nice breakfast each morning. All tucked into a flower filled super convenient location downtown. Avoid the churlish female staff, they could freeze water with a glare. Definitely will return!

Room Tip: I think the upstairs rooms may have been a bit quieter....

We unfortunately were only able to stay for one night at the Comfort Inn by the sea as we were travelling on to Santa Barbara and then Santa Monica. However from the moment we arrived, we knew we had picked a great place! The outside appearance of the hotel is so pretty, parking was easy on site and we found the office quickly. The lady who greeted us could not have been more charming and welcoming. She was so friendly and gave us all the information that we needed, I felt relaxed from the start. We had two rooms, one for our daughters and we had requested they were next to each other, which they were. The rooms were lovely, so clean which is a major priority in my book, and so very comfortable. The bathroom was spotless and spacious with a great shower. We had a fridge and a microwave, so would have been very useful if we had been staying longer. Cannot fault the room or the service we received.
The position of the hotel was great, we were able to walk into Carmel and go down to the beach and then again in the evening, we walked to a lovely Italian restaurant and had a great meal and pleasant evening.

Breakfast was good the next morning with a good choice and check out was quick and painless. To summarise, we highly recommend this hotel and thank the very helpful lady on reception who helped make our stay so pleasant.

Stayed 2 nights at the Comfort Inn in Carmel by the Sea. It was just the nicest stay. The hotel is beautifully maintained, clean and bright and warm. Lovely flower boxes and an outdoor patio with umbrellas and tables for guests' enjoyment. From the moment we checked in we felt welcome. Parking was free and on site and it was an easy stroll to downtown.The complimentary breakfast was super and included a nice variety of choices. Fresh coffee was always available.The room was nicely appointed, very comfy bed, large bathroom with lots of space. Big screen TV and fridge. Clean clean clean. We enjoyed our time here and hope to make it a yearly event. Well done Comfort Inn.

Room Tip: We chose an upstairs room. The hotel is very quiet, we slept great. I think I could recommend any ro...

We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Carmel for a wedding. The hotel was quiet and clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are on the small side, but comfortable. The location was great on the main road and right next to shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the courtyard. I think some of the rooms may have an ocean view, so it's so...

We had a reservation at another unamed hotel which was very expensive and turned out to be a dump. So we backed out of that reservation and came across the street to find this little gem. Newly remodeled rooms, pleasant grounds, friendly help and a nice complimentary breakfast at less than half the cost. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay by a day. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

Comfort Inn was nice. The exterior was inviting with colorful flowers throughout the property and flower boxes on the window. The room was very clean and in good condition. The bed was comfortable.
The bathroom was spacious and clean. The shower worked well. The room itself was a bit small. We had hardly any room between desk and bed which made it a bit inconvenient but tolerable. It did have a chair besides the desk chair to read in which was nice. The location is nice. It is convenient to downtown but not close to the beach. The front desk person was helpful and provided excellent service.

The front desk person provided excellent service. The location is convenient to dowtown Carmel. The room is small; there is very little space for luggage or extra storage. The grounds, patio, and adjacent landscaping are very nice.

Room Tip: upper floor
