“Good value”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

No elevator for the third floor. Had elderly man unhappy with building setup, however after serching for over 3 hours and getting his own bed and room there was little complaining. The continental breakfast was the usual, crowded and under staffed. Beautiful beach views.

Room Tip: Make reservations in advance. Right off the freeway and not $$

Reviewed 19 September 2011

I've paid almost $200 for a room in this place. I do not expect any luxuary in 2 star hotel 10 miles from Monterey but a reasonable quality room is expected. Wrong! In this property I've got tiny dark room on the ground which seemed converted from a storage. Coffee maker is located next to the toilet in the bathroom as well as "wardrobe". There was some kind noisy machinery room next to it. Bed was very uncomfortable and noise from the highway was loud even with closed windows. We did not get much sleep. So-called "continental breakfast" consisted of tray of sweets and coffee pots. The place even does not have a single chair. Bottom line - avoid it!

This place is filthy inside and out. The bed had been made up to look done, but had old stains, with hair, sheets. There was garbage rotting in the coffee maker. It took hours of being on hold repeatedly before Comfort Inn refunded us. They never said "Sorry" and never even responded to the emails. This whole Motel chain has definitely slipped. Stay elsewhere.

Cigarette butts and floss picks litter the outside grounds. The room itself had old coffee in the carafe, garbage in the ice container and the bed had been made up with the previous sheets. GROSS! Hairs and stains on the bed sheets! Cops there in the morning for unknown reasons. RUN do not walk from this motel. Motel 6's are way better than this place. RUN RUN RUN.

Price gouged because of the motorcyle rally (didnt realize there was one) normaly a hundred dollar room and ended up paying 250 because this was the only hotel left. The room was ratty and run down carpet ripping up and the bath room door looked like it had been broken in half and glued back together, internet usage was none existant. I found trash under our beds that was from someone else, broken elect sockets and fire hazard lamps. When I read that there was laundry facilities I didnt realize that ment 1 washer and 1 dryer (2 dollars a piece to run btw) the water was turned almost off and when I can back almost and hour later it hadn't even filled the washer up. I did like the selection for breakfast but the room where its served is very small and hot. Front desk people are not that friendly or helpfull.

Overall, friendly staff and decent (basic) ammenities. Considering the pricing on hotels close by, this was a steal. Just over the dunes from the water and just off of the PCH. Good late-night last minute find. Only set back was the breakfast....it was in a very crowded converted guest room. Yummy donuts, but very hard to get to them.

Do yourself a favor and keep driving. The room shown is NOT the room we got. Walk In closets are bigger. We thought we would make the best of it , get a good nights sleep and catch up on some laundry that accumulated on our 14 day vacation. Didn't happen. The washer and dryer should have been replaced 10 years ago. Massive amounts of hair were found in my bed. Apologies and new linen were given but it should have never been an issue. Never again.
