My wife and I spent two nights here the first week of April. The inn staff was friendly and accommodating. If you don't know where to go for lunch or dinner, just ask at the front desk. We requested and received an upstairs room after the first night. It wasn't the motel's fault, we just had a heavy walker above us.
The rooms were adequately appointed, if not a bit cramped, and the bathrooms were nicely updated. There was a microwave, coffee maker and small fridge in each room. The grounds of the inn are beautifully landscaped with many flowers and plants, and the patio area is a nice gathering space for guests. The inn is located on the main commercial avenue (Ocean), so it is very easy to walk to the many shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants of Carmel. The downhill walk to the beach to watch surfers or the sunset is also nice, though coming back uphill is more of a workout. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was also nice and filling. An assortment of pastries, bread, bagels, cereals, fruit, waffles, juice and coffee are available until 10 am.
If you've done any research into Carmel, you'll already know that parking can be difficult, though midweek we had no problem. The free lot at the inn has about 10 spaces (too few for the number of rooms) and a few more free spots line the street adjacent to the property. So nab a spot and walk if you can, or keep your eye open for one to open up then move.
All in all, the Comfort Inn was a pleasant spot to stay in Carmel. Not extravagant, not a dive, just a friendly motel-style inn with a few nice perks.
