I was a bit concerned after reading the review regarding bed bugs. So I talked over the phone to the manager about this. I felt all my questions were answered and she also offered the pest control service company they used. I felt very safe keeping my reservation, and am very glad. The two rooms we had were very clean and comfortable. I recommend this for anyone who is going to the Monterey Aquarium, or Fishermans Wharf. I didn't regret it, and would stay there again.

I booked several rooms at the Comfort Inn on the 1200 block of Munras Avenue in Monterey, CA. The occasion was a Celebration of Life for a Monterey-based attorney who had unexpectedly died of virulent cancer, so it was a sad occasion and to encounter problems with the hotel would have been very trying.

I'm pleased to say that this unpretentious little hotel/motel came through for us 100%. The sales manager, Ms. Castro, very extremely helpful at all points, and patiently walked me through Comfort Inn's rather unwieldy on-line booking process.

The Comfort Inn itself, while located on what passes for a busy main street in Monterey is actually fairly quiet; the grounds are neat, clean and simply but pleasantly landscaped. Moreover, it is very near to all the main attractions -- the old downtown, the Aquarium, Yacht Club and wharves -- a reasonably fit walker could get to all these destinations on foot, if need be. All this, and we got probably the cheapest rooms in this rather expensive tourist destination.

When we arrived, we all found our rooms to be immaculately clean, and they were kept that way all during our stay.

This is a great budget option -- no fancy shops, restaurants, but there was a pretty decent breakfast included in the price of the room, plus an exercise room and swimming pool. This was a great bargain, and not even the more upscale members of the party had any complaints.

I will definitely make this my stop when I'm in the Monterey area. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms at the foot of the property opposite the street are the quietest. However, I stayed near t...

Last week we stayed at this motel for a night on our road trip down the PCH. We were freaked out when we saw a bed bug - maybe two. Wrong choice. Disappointing to say the least. Does this warrant a credit at least?

I stayed at this Comfort Inn in June 2012, and it was a very nice stay. I am a frequent traveler and spend quite a few nights away from home. I was in Monterey for a week, and while it wasn't perfect, it was a very pleasant surprise. My room was cleaned well every day, the hotel is real close to a mall (that has a Starbucks!), and the bathroom was deceptively huge and roomy. If you are looking for high Choice Hotel standards, I would definitely pick this hotel. While the parking is pretty condensed (not much room to back out, but saw plenty of big SUVs there), and the breakfast area is real small (I just took food to my room), I would definitely stay here again !

Room Tip: Stay here if you want the most for your buck

I am glad we were a "pleasant surprise", especially as you are a frequent traveler and know your hotels. Yeah for Starbucks at the mall across the road! Next time you visit us try the newly open Provence Bakery (about 5 stores down from Starbucks). Great Croissants or breakfast sandwiches. They open at 6am. See you on your return trip to Monterey. Call hotel direct and we can book the same room for you based on availability.

We were only here 1 night, but it worked for us.

Pros - nice property, clean & well looked after, good breakfast buffet, bathroom vanity area was separate from toilet/shower which made for ease of getting ready to go; good location not far from bay area

Cons:
Beds need to be upgraded - more than 1 night would have been uncomfortable.
Only 1 light switch worked all the lights in the room - no night time reading unless everyone is up.
Pool area, although it was way too cold to swim, did not look like it was ready to swim - might be an issue for parents of younger kids.

Overall, this is a good place for 1 night in Monterrey.

Thank you for your feedback and were glad that you enjoyed our clean rooms and our amenities. We do have one light switch that works the main ceiling lights. However, the bed side table lamps meant for night reading do operate individually. The hotel does have 2 pools. One (larger) is open and the other smaller one is closed. We will do a better job of communicating this at check in.
Hope to see you soon when in Monterey again.

Stayed just one night on way to Big Sur,but was pleased with our choice.Attractive setting with lovely flower pots and baskets. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room was fairly basic but comfortable. Breakfast was very good far better than we were offered else where on our trip.The girl at breakfast kept everything clean and replenished. There is a large shopping centre across the main road which has a good selection of restuarants if you don't feel like walking downtown.
