“Quaint, clean, and comfortable!”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

We were on a road trip up the California coast and we arrived a little early. They couldn't get us in for a bit, but they upgraded my room, and got us in as soon as the room was available. The beds were super comfy. The breakfast was perfect and everyone was so nice. My favorite part was the DVD collection. They have players in the room and let you check out as many movies as you want for free. It is a short walk to the fisherman's wharf and we bought our aquarium tickets right there at the hotel. We loved our visit and didn't want to leave. We went to a Hilton after this, and the experience was poor in comparison to our experience here!!!

Room Tip: They have an elevator, so you are good with any floor. I now some rooms have fireplaces.

Friendly front desk staff, nice rooms with frig and microwave. Good location just blocks from downtown (less than .25 mile walk). Treats in the lobby all day long! Not fancy, but perfect for a nice little getaway.

Room Tip: Room 217 has 2 beds with a futon

After canceling at another hotel, we were pleasantly surprised when we drove up. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, property was clean and close to town, and the room was perfect. We had a king bed, a fireplace, and tiny balcony (room 221). Very happy with our stay. We went to Lalla for drinks and to be around young locals.

Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, complementary breakfast. The rooms are all different and have a funky fun (sorta dated) feel. I have stayed at the Colton multiple times and all good experiences but others in my group have had random problems with electricity, etc.

Room Tip: just inquire about size, location and amenities like frig/kitchen as they vary signficantly

Great location. Walking distance to the wharf. Friendly staff. Clean, but underwhelming rooms. The bathrooms receive a C- from us, they were tired looking and the shower head was very low. We booked the hotel through Hotwire, and I was a little disappointed when the hotel name was revealed, I think the Comfort Inn in Carmel would have been nicer for 20.00 dollars more, which was their published rate. I would not stay here again on purpose, but would be happy to stay there if Hotwire revealed the hotel with a bargain rate.

Lovely, clean, spotlessly maintained buildings and grounds. Cookies and drinks available all afternoon. Large rooms, some with balconies and fireplaces. Reception staff could have been friendlier. Nice terrace to sit on with a cuppa or breakfast. Very close to sea and downtown. Vending machines and laundry. What's not to like?

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back with a balcony and fireplace . Grab the cookies while you can!
