Comfort Inn Monterey by the Sea

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Comfort Inn Monterey by the Sea is a fantastic hotel when looking for a great convenient affordable hotel in the Monterey/Carmel area. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is great located just a short distance from downtown/Wharf of Monterey and only a couple of miles from downtown Carmel.

Great location, across the street from Del Monte shopping center that has Starbucks, Whole Foods, movie theater, restaurants, and shopping. Short 10-15 minutes drive to Carmel, Fishermen Wharfs, Aquarium/Cannery Row. Greatest area to visit in California!!

It is not a hotel. More of a motel. Bathroom could not fit two people. Total room is smaller than my own bedroom. Breakfast ran out of all drinks and one of the waffle makers was broken. Vending machines empty never stay there again.

This was overall a nice trip. We were there for our son's graduation from the Language School in Monterey.

The attention was really good. And the room was super clean. I like it

Booked this hotel last second and we were overall happy with our stay.

It was loud and difficult to get towels. The breakfast was good. The staff was not always helpful .

The Munrus motels are a lot nicer to stay in than the ones on N. Freemont, which have a ghetto feel.

Stayed a night at Comfort Inn Monterey By The Sea on the weekend of Pacific Grove lighthouse 5k event. Its location is the only plus. It is close to most popular spots. Room is okay comfortable and okay clean. At the night it is easily to hear people walk by or talk. Scramble eggs and sausages are soggy and do not feel they are fresh.

Easy to warf area The breakfest was outstanding and better then most

Lots of noise when AC turns on and runs. Dead silent when it turns off. How can you sleep?

We loved the location of this hotel, close to the Pacific Highway but out of the hustle of Cannery Row. The room was clean, the staff was great, and the continental breakfast was just what we like. The only concern I had is that the bed was a little small and creaks every time someone moves in the middle of the night. All in all though, it was perfect price for what we needed.

Conveniently located, could walk to the beach but close to the mall as well. Large selection at breakfast too.

We got there, requested a late check in, they accomidated with us. Got there, went to put stuff on the sink, it was a little broken. Took a shower, it was a tad bit small. Water pressure was beyond great! But the water smelt like sulfer a tad bit. Went to dinner, I don't recremend bull wackers. Went down to lovers point, my boyfriend puposed. Went back to the oom, went to sleep. Bed was way way comfy. Could use a few more pillows. Woke up next morning, breakfest was not all that great. Were about to check out, look around so we didn't forget anything, and I noticed a condom wrapper under the bed. But other then that, couldn't hear your neighbors, and it was overall nice.

Great Rooms, excellent staff. The breakfast was more than enough to be a continental breakfast. The room was clean when we got there.

Location was pretty great. Not far at all from Cannary Row, the Aquarium, and Fisherman's Warf. For the price, the hotel was good, but will not stay again since the bed was killer on my back.

good location.short drive to cannery row and the aquarium.short drive to the 17 mile drive.overall very nice and friendly.

CAUTION: This hotel was awful. The room smelled of smoke and mildew the entire stay. My fince and I had to brew coffee in the room since we could not change rooms (as we were told). The bathroom was DIRTY...toilet and all. This hotel was indeed below what I would consider to be sanitary and acceptable. Definitely would NOT stay here again.

went to cannery row the warf and aquarium.

Not really "pet friendly." There is no place online to reserve 'with a pet.' When you arrive they ask if you have a pet; if so they change your room to one of their so called pet rooms which was a disabled room. They then only allow ONE pet and charge $25 per night with a list of other ways to charge you. They are also so worried about dog noise that I went to the car, came back and got a call with our neighbor having complained about a barking dog.
