“Really enjoyed our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel in Monterey.We decided at the last minuteto book room in Monterey on our way to disneyland. The girl at the front desk was very helpful in giving information on Monterey. Our room was very clean and loved the flowers everywhere. Well kept. Only disappointment was that it was cold, I guess we were expecting warmer climate. unlike comments below, I guess we lucked out and got the larger room. We paid less then $100 for 4 of us, nice place. We enjoyed our stay

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and that you enjoyed our rooms and over 40 varieties of flowers. Our gardener takes great pride in his work. Sorry about the cooler weather during your stay. This week has been a little cooler then normal. The weather man promises warmer temperatures by the end of this week!

I saw this motel when we first pulled in and thought it was going to be great. Here is what we found- Rooms were cramped to say the least, bathrooms were old and the shower was smaller than a British phone booth. Worse yet, there is no exhaust fan in it!! Don't look out the bathroom window, the junk behind the motel was a shock.

The worst was the hard mattress, but I guess that is a personal preference. Cable TV was okay with no info at all. I guess the higher price was due to being in Monterey, because I thought it was too much, even with my AAA discount. We stayed in a much better motel the night before and for the same cost. I will say this, the room was quiet.

Skip the continental breakfast if you are a diabetic, it was all sugary pastries, cereals, and waffles. Only boiled eggs! Who wants that before you go back on the road?

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Our standard rooms do have showers only however we do have larger rooms one and two bedded rooms plus our Family rooms (that can sleep up to 6) and large Jacuzzi room that have larger bathrooms that include tubs. Regarding TV Cable information, we do have the info in our Guest room directory plus HBO information.Currently we locate our directories on the activity tables. Perhaps we should locate it by the bedside table for easy access. Even though our Fresh Belgian Waffles are guest favorite, besides the boiled eggs, we do serve English muffins, fresh fruit, oatmeal and non sugar cereals. Best of all, yes our rates are higher during the Summer season, however if you go to our website, stayatmonterey.com, we do have several promotional offers including our advance rate offer. Again we appreciate your input and always strive to make a guest feel comfortable at our hotel.

I needed a room at the last minute and the location was convenient. The young man at the desk was really very nice and had left only a king bed. The price was right, the room was ok, television had tons of channels, comfortable mattress and clean bathroom with tub and shower. In a pinch, I'd consider it again.
Problems? Noise! Tons of slamming doors and car doors. Families with kids who were noisy both at night and in the morning. I slept late and missed breakfast, but the morning desk clerk even had a toothbrush and toothpaste (no comb) because I'd forgotten mine. Vending machines were available for junk food snacks for those who wanted that. The place is OK.

Thank you for your feedback.We are proud of the staff service, clean, comfortable rooms and the extra amenities that we offer free of charge. We are centrally located in Monterey and attract many leisure travelers including families with children and can understand your frustrations with children banging doors. As we do have 2 separate buildings, we do our best to separate our "family" travelers from our non family travelers, Clearly with summer drawing close we will work harder at this. I am sorry you missed our Comfort Sunshine breakfast. Next time we may not be able to pack our Belgian waffles to go (!), but can certainly pack you some fruit/muffins/pastries/coffee to go. Good feedback on the vending machine, will contact vendor and see if we can add better healthier choices.

Absolutely excellent for the price. Stayed here many times during 08/09 and was never disappointed. The rooms are always clrean and their continental breakfast is great. Definitely a best bang for your buck kind of place. The staff was always friendly and they offer a military discount. It's right across the street from the mall which has all kinds of restuarants and a movie theater. If you're up for a long walk you could walk to the beach, but I'd recommend grabbing a cab. Also a short drive from the carmel beach.

We didn't have reservations. We didn't do our hotel-homework. We were in town in a spur-of-the-moment. This was the first hotel we saw. We wanted a room without anyone above us. We were given room #117. Peaceful sleep, right? Here's the twist: The stairs are located in front of our window and the landing is right below our front door. Everything about this hotel was SMALL, compared to the average hotels. Room was small, the two beds were double-sized (not the usual queen-sized), even the TV was small, the room rate with AAA was good, no bath- only shower stall, the space to get to closet was non-existent, carpets were worn and torn. I'll stop here. THe good things were: waffles for breakfast- don't be shy, make 2 sets of waffles while you're standing there, nevermind the LONG line. Waffles were good. THat was the best part. So, don't do what we did and keep looking. It's ok for a one-night and if you are desperate.

Comfort Inn now owns two hotels side by side on Muntras. We checked into the lobby of one of the hotels but our room was actually at the hotel next door (to the south). So I can imagine that reviews of this hotel will vary depending on which complex you visit. Both are labeled Confort Inn. Anyway, we were very pleased with our room. It was a good sized room and the bathroom was surprisingly large too. The bathroom was recently redone. New tub, shower walls, vanity, etc. Very clean and modern. The refrigerator was bigger than those you find in most hotels. The staff was friendly and it seemed like there was an effort to please. You get a call shortly after checking in to make sure you are happy with the room. A nice touch. My only complaints were minor: 1. The carpet was pretty torn up and needs to be replaced. 2. The hotel charges a fee to use the in-room safe even if you don't want to use it. You can get it refunded but they force you to visit the office before you check out and then they will remove the charge. A bit annoying... they are counting on customers being too busy or forgetful to come in and get their refund.
