The rooms are very clean, modern and spacious with lovely comfy beds and lots of clean towels. The breakfast was ok and served in a small room with the check in desk. There are no elevators so be prepared to carry everything upstairs if you have an upstairs room. Location is excellent and there is parking on site. Coffee machine and fridge was good.

Carmel stop on our San Francisco to Palm Desert road trip. Standard accommodations with parking and close access to town. Easy walk to the beach. Everything was clean and the simple breakfast buffet was all we needed. A pretty little courtyard provided a nice sitting spot.

In Carmel-by-the-Sea where the charm lies in its boutique hotels, restaurants, and unique shops, the corporate-ness of the Comfort Inn sticks out like a sore thumb. The small but recently renovated rooms contain good amenities and are modern and pleasant, but the main issue is the location off of busy Ocean Ave and lack of soundproofing. It's a quick walk to downtown which makes it very convenient, but the constant traffic noise is bothersome. Plus the soundproofing between rooms and from the outside is virtually nonexistent. We were in a downstairs room the first night and constantly heard footsteps above us, and the voices and toilet flushes of our neighbors. The office cheerfully switched us to an upstairs room the rest of our stay, and the footsteps disappeared but the voices remained, as did the constant roar of engines outside the door. Free breakfast is good if you like the same powdered eggs and breakfast sausage every morning. At over $300 a night, it's comparable in price to most places in this very pricey town, but also the most expensive Comfort Inn we've every stayed at.

I really wish I'd read more reviews before starting our stay because I now see that several do mention noise. I have to believe that our room (#55, downstairs backing up to Sixth Street, which has a convenience store across that street) is one of their noisiest. I am kicking myself because we originally were assigned an upstairs room in the middle of the property (#61) that I declined because it was hot up there (electricity was out for several hours and the window gets full afternoon sun), plus I didn't want to carry our large suitcases up so many stairs (no elevator, even if there was electricity) after a long day's drive. We stayed 3 nights: Tuesday after Labor Day, Wednesday and Thursday. The noise factor just from folks walking or rolling suitcases in the room upstairs or talking (#66) was pretty bad, but at least it typically did not last more than 30 minutes or so at a time. I fell asleep by laying on my side and covering my exposed ear with a pillow. On Wednesday morning at about 4:50 AM, the sound of loud engines roaring right outside our open window toward Sixth Street (there's no a/c in the room), along with beeping like from trucks backing up, the sound of electric hand trucks whirring around, and what sounded like pallets or other heavy items being moved around and workers talking jolted us awake. It lasted for about 50 minutes, followed by more general work and street noise for awhile. I went back to sleep at that point by closing the window (which made the room warm & stuffy) and putting a pillow over my head. Woke up feeling like I hadn't slept at all. Thursday morning's noise started around 5:30 AM, though not quite as loud as the day before. I closed the window and found that running the portable fan in the room (which has a constant hum) helped even out the sounds outside as well as the noises from upstairs so I could go back to sleep. Thursday morning, I happened to awaken at just before 6:00 to go to the bathroom and was delighted that there had been no noises yet. About 10 minutes later, a garbage truck came along, making lots of noise for about 10 minutes, but after that it was just occasional cars, people talking out there and a few doors slamming at the hotel. I mentioned the noise to the front desk the first morning, and she shrugged it off, saying maybe it was garbage trucks, but they don't come until after 7:00 AM. The other negative was the outdoor security lighting that shines through the top of the curtains enough to dimly illuminate the entire room. That didn't bother us, but if you need a really dark room in order to sleep, bring an eye mask Outside of the noise and lights, I would have given a 4-star rating. This hotel is comfortable, charming and well-located along Ocean Street (the "main drag" in town). Our room was decorated invitingly in a beach motif, with light colors that made it feel very airy and light (I mention this because I saw some reviews mention theirs being dark). It was very clean and lovely. The beds were comfy. The hot breakfast was only scrambled eggs and sausage patties, but there were cold cereals and yogurts. We mostly chose to eat breakfast in town.

Cons: I do not understand is why it is more expensive than the hotels around. The construction is old, the walls are too thin, so you follow the conversations in the other rooms. Tiny parking, so you have to park on the street. Next block there is a better hotel, cheaper, with spacious rooms with a view and fireplace. Unfortunately it was full and I had to stay here. Pros: Location, walking distance from city center. Breakfast is as good as other similar hotels.

The positive: this Comfort Inn is in a great location, and the room was clean. When we entered the room, though, we noticed a VERY strong odor, which we thought at first might be the result of too much cleaning solution in a closed room, so we opened all the windows. Unhappily, that did not solve the problem. The smell was so strong and sickening that we had to keep all windows open all night to get a little relief, which made the room very cold, and even then, we checked out as quickly as possible in the morning to escape the odor. We did notice that other rooms did not seem to have the problem - their windows were shut - so we suspect that perfume or some perfumed solution had been spilled in the room at some point. The room was not really fit for rental when we were there. Very disappointing.

We stayed for a night on route to LA from San Francisco. It is good value as Carmel accommodation on the whole seemed pricey. It has a good location albeit a bit of a walk to the beach and the rooms are modern, clean and well equipped. It is a bit noisy in the rooms as they don’t have inbuilt AC so if you have the windows open you get the noise from the street and delivery trucks waking you up!

This hotel was lovely from start to finish, with excellent daily housekeeping, a beautiful modern room and excellent wifi. I loved the old fashioned feel of the motel and the seats outside were a lovely place to sit. The staff were lovely and friendly with good housekeeping, the only downside is the parking is quite limited but i always managed to find a space. Can't wait to return.

We stayed in the suite for 2 nights. It’s a beautiful room with a very modern fireplace and a view of town and the water. The high ceilings make the room feel bigger than it is, but the room does not get dark at night making it hard to sleep. It was very quiet and easy to walk to shops and restaurants. Parking is tight but available.

Location is one of the reason we chose this property close to the sea quite place and I had a view that with comfort things cannot go wrong. Clean rooms, Comfortable beds & Good location are the good selling points. However the rooms were very small, very limited parking, outdated hotel and lastly I felt it was way more expensive than it is worth.
