The value of this place is it's location directly across the street from the Monterey County Fairgrounds.

This is a basic clean motel. The TV is limited. There are the news channels (FOX and CNN), sports (ESPN, ESPN2), and local networks, with a few movie channels. They do not get HGTV, which is my "radio" when I'm working in the room.

I loved the bathroom - there is one sink, however, the counter is huge, and both of us were able to get ready in the morning w/o feeling cramped.

I loved the lighting. There were lamps as well as recessed lighting. No squinting the eyes.

The breakfast was a bit lame, but adequate. Cold cereal, fruit (bananas, apples, oranges), pastries, but no "hot" food.

There is coffee/decaf/hot water in the lobby, however, the lobby closes at 11pm. This is frustrating, as a hotel has a business center 24/7 where I can work and print late into the night or early in the morning.

Also, they rather lecture you when you check-in about NO pets and NO smoking. This is a given, and they could be nicer about it (I'm 60 years old and don't look like a kid).

On a side note, unless you request it, they do not clean your room but every three days.

If you want strong internet, ask for a room in the 130's. :D

Room tip: Best Wi-fi - rooms are in the 130s.

This motel allows easy access to the wharf, aquarium, downtown, and a major shopping center. The room we had was in the very front and looked nothing like the photos on-line. I think it is a one-off conversion of the old manager's residence. It was a very nice room with a bedroom area, hallway and bath in the back. There is a patio, small bar/sink area, and even an electric fireplace. The breakfast was well stocked typical Comfort Inn fare in a somewhat small room with 4-5 tables. The front desk staff was very polite and friendly. Parking is in front of your room with all rooms having outside doors, not enclosed hallways. We will stay here again.

This Comfort Inn is our place to stay when in Monterey. You can park right in front of your room to unload your luggage and shopping, plenty of places to eat near by and very helpful staff. The breakfast is perfect and check outs are always seamless. Thanks again, Ken N.

Room tip: Book early for great rates

This hotel was super affordable and the rooms were incredibly clean. Their continental breakfast was also the best one of the whole trip. It does say on TripAdvisor that they allow pets but that’s not actually true. However, the staff was incredibly accommodating and allowed our dog to stay with us. 10/10

We have visited Monterey many times and were really impressed with this facility. Good friendly people of Andrea and Samanatha. Room was quiet, clean, and most surprising-spacious. One of the very best places we have stayed at in town. Good, accessible location.

Room tip: All rooms are easy to get to and they do a really nice breakfast here
