We choose this hotel/motel for its location and amenities (in particular free wifi and breakfast that was more than continental style) - and of course the reviews here, and my favorable encounters with Comfort Inns in the past. Had a great price option by being a Choicehotels member, and reserving then through their website.

It worked perfectly for us. We really enjoyed its quaintness and the tidy details of hanging flowers and other plantings, clean public areas, inside and out. Bed was comfortable. Bath area spacious and seemingly somewhat newly remodeled. Shower experience (pressure, hot water) was satisfactory. Floor space in room was adequate, and included the usual small round table and two chairs; no desk/chair piece. Once we checked in, the front desk manager called the room to be sure we were happy and had what we needed. That was a nice customer service touch!

Breakfast suited us well, with options from yogurt, to different toasts and sweet rolls, option to make waffles, and scrambled eggs, sausage, juices, coffee, tea, etc. Even being the holiday weekend, there was not a problem to find a table inside, or outside, to enjoy our morning meal and a newspaper.

Only negative might be the tv service, which does not have the cable channels you might expect elsewhere.

This hotel also has a lot of solar panels on it, if that sort of green aspect to their business is important to you. Shopping center just up the road, including movie theater (which we enjoyed as well).

Would absolutely stay here again.

Comfort Inn near a beach...was a little skeptical but it turned out to be fine especially for only one or two nights.

The property has beautiful flowers which gives it a homey feel. The staff is really friendly and recommended activities.

The rooms are updated...not high end but clean and nice. My room had a very large bathroom (only a large walk in shower) but no counter space. I would recommend a bigger counter top because women need something to place their toiletries or make-up while dressing.

The breakfast is the normal free breakfast which is great to have. WiFi worked fine. There is a small table in the room which made it easy for working. There is also a fridge and microwave which came in handy. It is not too far from the highway. They have solar panels so they must be partly Green.

Downside...it is not walking distance to the shore and the parking is limited. Also, these are not comfort inn prices due to the location but was more expensive to stay here than in Carmel which is not far.

Overall it was much better than I expected...and if the price is right I would consider staying here again.

Room Tip: I had a room towards the back. It was quite.

We spent one night at this Comfort Inn. The staff was superb on check-in and check-out! Our room was on the bottom level at the back and it was lovely. Room was very clean and everything was great. Great breakfast, great location and great service! Would highly recommend this hotel for good value and great staff and service.

Our room was clean and simple. The location is conveniently close to town, a less than 5 minute drive to the wharf and Cannery row. The free breakfast seemed to have a lot of choices, but folks had to wait a while for items to be replenished. The price seemed overly expensive for the small basic room, but when you consider the popular location of Monterey- I guess it is more of a deal.

Room Tip: I was told there is a newer section with larger rooms, maybe try asking about those?

Within its class, this Comfort Inn motel is a five-star establishment. This is not to say it is on the same level as the Ritz Carltons and Four Season Hotels, or even the superior Hyatt Regency Monterey, and this is a flaw in the tripadvisor rating system which treats all hotels and motels on the same rating scale. But within its class, this Comfort Inn is truly five stars. Our King Bed room had a nice sized bathroom, not at all cramped, with quick hot running water. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was equipped with a small microwave, a large flat screen TV with lots of channels including HBO, and a small fridge. Ice was readily available too. Check in and check out service by staff was excellent, and the complimentary breakfast was very good, with scrambled eggs, sausage patties, waffles, along with cereals, oat meal, fresh fruits and juices. Does not feel at all like a "budget" motel.

On Munras Ave near the Del Monte Shopping Plaza, it is five minute drive to the wharf area and 10 minutes to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Lots of Parking too. Small exercise room - one treadmill and one ellipitical i believe.

Wow thank you for the 5 Star accolade in the mid service category!!! We certainly are not in the same level as the Ritz however as you so well pointed out, we strive to provide as many amenities and features as one will find in full service hotels. Many of which are complimentary...breakfast...parking....Wifi...local calls. My team will be happy to read your kind feedback. We look forward to seeing you on your return trip to our beautiful city.
