“A bit dated but fine for one night”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

This hotel is quite dated, it doesn't even look like a Comfort Inn, more like an old Days' Inn. But it was OK for one night. There's a great little Vietnamese joint next door and it's convenient to town. Hotels in Monterey are outrageously expensive, and it just seems ridiculous to pay more than what this place charged (and it still wasn't cheap) for one night when on the road.

We appreciate your feedback. You are correct that our hotel does not look like a typical Comfort Inn. In Monterey if you noticed, most hotels are not the stereotypical facades. Monterey hotels have a unique look more reminiscent of hotels in a small beach town location. Also please do visit our website (also mobile friendly) for value offers and packages for better deals.

We stayed here while visiting Monterey over the labor day break. The rooms are clean and the bathroom was really large and updated. The front desk staff was nice. We really liked the location not too far from the major attractions and really close to the big mall area for food options. The breakfast was fine (for price we paid) - eggs, waffles, juice etc. For a small hotel (or more like a motel), it is well maintained with nice landscape. The price was great for a holiday weekend.

The hotel is located with all the other 'chains' on Munras Avenue. The rooms were good, nice size, clean, but for two adults the queen beds were too small. Breakfast room was overcrowded, regardless of the time. Staff very good, and extremely freindly. While we were it was too cold for the pool, but even if it had been warmer i doubt we would have used it, very small, and didnt look too well maintained. Overall a good hotel though, no complaints.

We booked this hotel the day before arrival and for 2 nights. The receptionst was very helpful and allowed us to book in early, the other 2 receptionists we met were also very helpful. The room was very nicely furnished, clean, quiet and very comfortable. The pool was lovely to swim in. Location was great and we could walk down into Monterey and to Fisherman's Wharf. The gardens were very pretty and overall a very enjoyable and very reasonably priced experience. We'd go there again if ever we were in Monterey.

Room Tip: Room 171 was lovely!

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.
