From beginning to end the staff was very friendly. The room was clean. The air conditioning system was old but worked fine and was able to cool the room after about 3 hours. My king size room had a fridge and microwave. The bathroom is smaller with a European style shower - a bit cramped and no vent, so the... More

I booked this little motel at the last minute. The place is quaint and has beautiful hanging baskets, a small pool, an exercise room and a separate breakfast room. Across the street there is a wonderful running/walking path. I was surprised to find a deep jetted tub in my room. The staff were polite and there was quite an international... More

Clean, helpful and friendly staff, great value for money. Located close to the beach, with a small swimming pool and free parking. Spacious room with a big bed and cable tv. Breakfast was basic but rich. Enjoyed my stay there.

The Comfort Inn Monterey by the Sea is a great hotel in the Monterey peninsula area. The location is fantastic being central and close to both downtown (Wharf) Monterey and Carmel. The hotel was very clean and the staff were outstanding. Highly recommend this place as an affordable hotel in Monterey.

The comfort inns are usually nicely kept hotels and this one was just ok. The rooms were very small the shower had old worn dirty tile I wouldn't even get in it. The breakfast that was free had nothing to eat other than muffins and some oatmeal and no coffee was a bit of a bummer.

Stayed here for an intermediate night's stop before heading down south. The only reason we picked this place was for the low price and they advertised a hot breakfast. This place is renovated fairly well and we had no complaints over the appearance, cleanliness, security, etc. The problem was we were hoping for a slightly classier place and this definitely...

I am a fan of Comfort Inns for their no frills hotels that include wifi, breakfast, and parking. This hotel did not disappoint. They have some lovely flowers and landscaping that add a nice touch to the "motel style" buildings. Most of the units are one floor and all are accessible from outside.
