Loved that each room has a parking space. Clean rooms with all the toiletries needed just in case you forgot something at home, I love pillows and they had plenty. The bed was just right. The room was cozy perfect for two. The pool was perfectly centered. The restaurant Esteban's is a must if you stay here. We sat outside...

Stayed for two nights for business. Very impressed. Fit and finishes were great, shower was nice and hot and the bed/pillows were perfect. They have a nice restaurant on grounds as well as a spa (that we didn't use). We walked to the aquarium from the hotel. Only about a 45 minute walk along the ocean and Cannery Row. Staff...

The hotel is advertised as a 3.5 star, The lobby was nice, the amenities of the hotel are well appointed, the location is excellent and it had a friendly staff. The reason for the poor rating is simply the room. It was small, old and at best moderately maintained. I understand this is an older hotel and I generally like...

A nice hotel in a fairly good location for the city centre or public transport to Cannery Row. The room was very nice and overall had a good feel to it. Restaurant was a little overpriced for the quality of the food, but no bad by any stretch. Overall a fairly comfortable short stay.

Cute, comfortable room with a small fireplace. Dog and baby friendly. There is a small grass area for the dogs with doggy bags available. Our room accommodated us with a Pack n' Play for our baby. The attached Estaban restaurant was decent. The hotel offered a coupon for 20% off the bill. Several other restaurants were right across the street....

We had one night in Monterey and this was a choice place to stay--being out and about during the day but in early at night. Great location-Alvarado Street restaurants and shops are maybe a 5-minute away, and it's 15 minutes to both Cannery Row and the 17 Mile Drive. We really liked our room, it was a good size with...

Good hotel, great room, well located and helpful staff. Good value for a family, 3 very large Becs and the fireplace was excellent to take off the evening chill. Pool is small but immaculate and great sunbeds. Swam even on chilly days as it is well heated. Recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Casa Munras last week for four days. We stayed in Room 279 which had a king size bed, a balcony and a fireplace. The bed was fabulous! Both the mattress and pillows were very comfortable. We used the fireplace each night and found it to be a big plus. The maid service was great....

I stayed one night to preview it for a corporate retreat later this year. My 3 musts for any hotel are: (1) super clean, (2) comfortable bed, and (3) good water pressure in the shower. Casa Munras delivered on all counts, and more. I was initially worried about # 3 because water pressure in the sink was very low, but...

This was our second family trip staying at this location. To stay in Monterey on a weekend, the amenities were well worth the price. It is just a couple blocks from Trader Joe's, Chipotle, Peet's coffee, as well as a short walk to local restaurants, icecream shops, and even Fisherman's Wharf. There are a few close transit drop off/pick up...

“Not room 110”

“Maybe a bottom room if you're staying only a night or two and have a lot of bags, as there are no elevators, but the stairs are not high.”

“Choose room 279. It's upstairs on a corner so it's quiet. The balcony is great for relaxing and you can see the ocean in the distance.”
