Comfort Inn Monterey Peninsula Airport
Travel Blogs from Monterey
As it was time to leave San Francisco we had planned on getting up early to make the most of our last few hours before picking up the hire car. The alarm was set for 6.30am but we were both awake by 6am and ready to go and grab something to eat by 7am. It was the coldest morning by far and the wind was biting. Unfortunately nowhere was open for breakfast that early so we headed on down to Pier 39 to get some pictures of the ...
... of people, some fishing, some making waves, some enjoying the view, as I pass by them. It isn't long before I find myself in Big Sur where I'm now a bit inland, surrounded by magnificent greenery. The trees tower above me, the lush forest around me, quite a different (and just as equally stunning) environment as I get closer towards Monterey. By the time I make my way to the outskirts of the Carmel/Monterey area, the sun has set and the light ...
... from the keepers. Next up is feeding time at the big open sea exhibit. They throw a lot of food into the water and the big tuna fish fly about and eat the food so quickly. Once all the big fishes have eaten their food the smaller fish get their lunch. Overall this is a really interesting thing to see and worth going to see. We walk around the rest of the aquarium to see the other exhibits before we leave Monterey.
... decks over the ocean with telescopes and binoculars available and waves pounding underneath. Totally brilliant. Even the cafe was cool and made a half decent latte. We walked from Monterey and stopped there on the way back for dinner at an Italian place. Pretty good but I keep forgetting how big the US portions are. The lovely waitress packaged up my plate and suggested the kids give it to one of the homeless. I have say ...

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.
