Reviewed May 21, 2014

Who would have thought that a last minute choice would bring such smiles to our faces as we pulled up to this lovely, immaculately cared for, and value for the $, throw back in time 'Motor Court'?! It was a great experience, very clean rooms and property, comfy beds, and breakfast was included.
They even delivered a USA Today to each room. Don't think twice, it was just lovely.

We enjoyed our 2 days stay. The staff was most help full. Good breakfast with real plates and coffee mugs. Eggs not so good. Sausage NOT so good. Lots of options. Most rooms are on the first floor and making access easy. NOTE if you want to sleep in late don't get a room up front. The walls are thin so you hear the neighbor slamming the door like 4 times in less than 5 minutes. Nice clean area and close to restaurants and Safeway. I booked early and saved lover $40 on my room.

Room Tip: If you want sleep in move the back of the property. Book early and save.

The location is close to Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, and Carmel. Not walking distance but a very short drive.

The front desk clerk was excellent: inquisitive without being intrusive. He offered maps, even as far away as Big Sur, when I mentioned we were headed that way after checkout. Also offered some cards offering free appetizers at a couple of restaurants on FW.

Breakfast was good, but pretty limited seating area.

The room was in serious need of an update, except for the bathroom which wasn't bad. The room badly needed new carpet, and the mattresses were below average. The room also had an odor like a cleaning solution.

TV reception was below average, as well as the internet connection.

My husband and I followed through on several Trip Advisor reviews to stay at this wonderful gem in Monterey. The staff is friendly and helpful, which included giving us good recommendations for dinner. Our room was spacious and comfortable with nice bed linens which included 4 pillows for each bed- 2 firm and 2 soft. A quite large bathroom with tub/shower and good shelf space. Nice flat screen T.V, Microwave and refrigerator and in room safe. Facilities include two swimming pools, fitness room with up-to-date equipment, and a full continental breakfast of make-your-own waffles, pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit juices and hot drinks. You can dine in or out on the patio. The grounds are absolutely beautifully landscaped with gorgeous flowering plants and bushes. We found that we did not hear any noise between the rooms. I have rarely seen a motel so well-kept and as beautiful as the Comfort Inn. It was a delight to stay there and we will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If you have particular needs, just explain them to the staff, i.e. want near the pool or handicap ac...

Located about a 5 minute drive to the Wharf. Very clean, charming hotel in a nice area of town. I called it "Motel row". all the hotels along this street are single or 2 level, and look like the old style Motels you'd find back in the day. almost all look up to date and charming. The Comfort Inn is by far the most charming looking. Nice grounds, flowers etc.we had the king room with Jacuzzi tub. Super NIce! Comfortable, newer type mattress. plenty of room. Jacuzzi worked fine. Classy decor. parking is a little tight, but we had no trouble leaving & coming back & finding a space. Hotel staff called our room shortly after arrival to ask if room was to our liking & if we needed anything. Impressed by that and staff! Breakfast was fine, no complaints- it was free, eggs, waffles, cereal, fruit, etc. good selection to start the day. Liked that they had a a few small outdoor patio seating areas . we traveled with other guests so it was nice to have a seating area outside to meet, sit and chat. I would stay again and recommend based on our first visit there. great hotel for the price and location. would have liked it to be a little cheaper, but in this area, we were satisfied with cost, room and service.

Room Tip: the King bed room with Jacuzzi was very nice. Our friend had the King that was at the end near the...

Stayed here 2 nights week. Room was very comfortable, large bathroom which had room for a chair if one was available. Very clean. Breakfast of scrambled eggs or hard boiled, sausages, fruits, yogurt, juices, coffee, cereals, pastries, make your own waffle, plain or blueberry.
Staff was very knowledgeable about area activites, gave us local maps and told us of short
cuts. Large shopping center a couple of blocks up the road with numerous restaurants, movie theatre, grocery store, drug store.

Booked in England before we traveled . Did what it said on the tin good standard clean tidy room. Fast check in parked out side room. Nice warm heated pool, pretty out side feel with flowers all around ,wish we could stay longer. I feel guilty I did not take time to remember the name of the guy on reception we stayed 28/4 he was one of the most helpful members of any hotel staff I have come across, he just seamed to go out of his way to help without trying a natural thank you,
