Comfort Inn Monterey Peninsula Airport
Travel Blogs from Monterey
Today we have been round Monterey and its been beautiful . Slow paced laid back great scenery . We had a lazy morning and set off around noon parked up and wandered towards he pier - old fashioned lots of fresh fish and sweet shops along the way we passed through a Greek festival which had irish dancing - your confused think about us stood there. Along the pier we stood ...
... ideas about what we were going to see, and both didn't think it was going to take long. 17mile drive turns out to be a road, with absolutely stunning views, and many stopping points. We started off thinking it was going to be slightly boring, but wow, our breath was taken away. We saw beautiful mountains, forest, kelp forests, sea views, beaches, cliffs, seals, sea lions, hummingbirds, pelicans, cormorants, ...
... where we got a king suite with hot tub! We asked the front desk for a fun place to get seafood. He told us to go to Old Fisherman's Grotto and gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. That was such a great suggestion. It was a fancy restaurant that served great food. Our free appetizer was popcorn shrimp. We shared the grilled swordfish with spicy tomato and cucumber relish. When they ...
Got up and went straight to work on my finishing my packing and getting ready for the start of my big drive to Los Angeles.
I checked out of my hostel and grabbed a shuttle to the airport which was where I was to pick up my rental car. I had decided not to pick a car up from the inner city office as I wanted to have as little to do with heavy traffic and one way streets that tend to be synonymous with large cities.
My shuttle ...
... surfing competitions in the world, it has lots of surf shops and restaurants and the main road is pretty busy but it comes across as really friendly and relaxed and it is easy to spend lots of time there. Apparently the city council is deliberately trying to keep the beachfront undeveloped (aka no skyscrapers etc) – I think this is great and I hope they manage to keep it that way!
This was our final beachy night as the next afternoon we headed off to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Monterey Peninsula Airport
Nice place for low budget
We stayed at this hotel on our weekend trip to Monterey. It's not walking distance from Cannery Row or the aquarium, but the 5 minute drive is not a bad one at all. Overall, the hotel was very clean and the staff was extemely friendly and helpful. The rooms were huge as everyone says (great for families with kids). Only oddity- TV was very low on the ground next to the fireplace. Would I stay again? Yes.
A big thumbs up!!
We chose The Way Station Inn as our overnight stay on our trip up the coast to San Francisco. It was like a breath of fresh air to stay in such a nice setting. Not only were the rooms huge and clean and comfortable, and the staff very friendly, but the location was so restful. There were lots of trees and flowers, excellent parking and it had a quiet residential feel. If I had to complain about anything it would be that there were no screens on the big bay window. We would have enjoyed leaving the window open. If we ever stay in Monterey again, I would definitely choose the Way Station Inn.
Lots of Room!
The motel was rated as a 2-star but we were pleasantly surprised with what we found. The main room was approximately 20'x20' with a sink vanity and a separate sink in the rest room portion. We had a refrigerator, microwave, and a covered balcony outside of our sliding glass doors. The rooms were clean and though we were near an airport, noise was not a problem. The continential breakfast was pretty modest but all-in-all we were very pleased in what we got for the price.
We stayed here as part of our month-long West-coast tour and rate this hotel well. It was located close to the quietest airport in the world(!!) and even though it was next to a busy road, it was so well secluded by trees that it was very peaceful. The room was HUGE - our small daughter loved the floor space to run around in and the private balcony was good to have. The beds were comfy and all our needs were met (micro, fridge, TV etc). The bathroom was OK, though not great - the only real downfall. The front-desk staff were very pleasant and the quaint breakfast room (only two small breakfast tables!) was sufficiently stocked. There is a restuarant located within the grounds, but we considered it too expensive for our needs and took the 10-minute drive into Monterey to eat. In all, this country-style Inn stood apart from run-of-the-mill motels; it served our needs and was ideally located for a peaceful stay within easy reach of facilities. We're fussy travellers (well, I am anyway!) but we'd stay here again, so that's a pretty good recommendation!
I stayed at this property last week and what a pleasant surprise for the price...
The rooms were spacious and spotless, having a microwave, fridge and a complimentary continental breakfast...and only 10min away fron downtown Monterey...
The front desk staff were very friendly and I would certainly stay here again...
I am in the travel business and I would certainly recomend this property to my clients...
Nice setting, but a disappointment from there.
The website does not exaggerate!
Easily, the most spacious rooms for the price. The area was quiet; the manager, accommodating. Will definitely stay here again!
I am a lover of Monterey Peninsula and return to this piece of heaven year after year for rest and rejuvenation. I have stayed in few places, but must say that this is the best value I have enjoyed.
No major problems
This motel complex looks quite attractive from the outside. There is very little noise from the nearby airport. The rooms are a generous size and quiet inside. They have a balcony but ours faced the street and it was too noisy to sit outside. Breakfast is small but adequate. Staff are friendly enough. The sheets on our bed had a few small holes and the one of the faucets dripped at night.
We stayed at this property for one night. The room was huge with a gas fireplace, microwave, an in room coffee maker and refrigerator. The bathroom had a tub with a separate shower and was also huge. There were only two of us but the room had a pull out sofa and could have accomodated a rollaway as well. The room was quiet and very clean and we would definately stay there again. It is right by the Monterey Airport yet we heard very little noise. There were no elevators as it is only two stories so be prepared to carry your luggage upstairs. The breakfast is continental and standard but adequate. This would be a great value for business, family and leisure travelers. Be aware however that you must drive to all tourist locations.
