The reservationist was rude and the traditional King room was small, the power went out 4 times. Then we woke up to a fire alarm at 8 a.m. sounded off for 20 minutes. when I brought these issues up to the manager Renee he was rude and offered no compensation for horrible stay. If you're planning on using the hot...

Stayed here for one night driving down the coast. Front desk and service was excellent and we felt very welcome. Room was cozy and very comfortable. We had a renovated room on the first floor. We didn't use any of the hotel facilities or eat in the restaurant although they looked to have good specials and the pool area looked...

The room was very nicely decorated, clean and spacious. The fireplace added a n8ce touch. The service we received was excellent. Will definitely return in the summer, as it was quite a rainy weekend. We dined, drank, went to the movies and fisherman's wharf all within 5-10 minutes walking distance from hotel. Would recommend this hotel to friends.

We enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a king size bed. The room was clean and newly renovated. The food is great and everything was priced just right. This place is quaint and cute. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I took advantage of a Tripadvisor sale to spend a weekend at Casa Munras--we came away very pleased. This hotel punches well above its weight, and is priced just right, particularly for weekend getaways. The rooms are well-decorated and comfortable, and the service is top-notch. The location can't be beat either: it's walking distance from the Alvarado...

Room was nice and clean and very comfortable. Can't beat the location super close to restaurants. Great for couples. Didn't use pool or other amenities because of the rain, but they looked great too. Good deal.

Excellent upscale atmosphere in the room and on the grounds. Walking distance to restaurants and bars on the strip. Courteous and attentive front of house staff. We had a fireplace in our room and it greatly added to the romantic vibe of the hotel.

The room was in great shape, and the bed and all the amenities were superb. The restaurant was very good and the happy hour was one of the best. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The concierge was extremely helpful and recommended an excellent restaurant.

I stayed for a conference at Asilomar and enjoyed being "off campus." Casa Munras is walking distance to downtown Monterey and the Bay and not a far drive to the conference grounds. My room was in the back on the bottom floor and was renovated, clean and modern. I heard some noise from the guests upstairs but nothing too bad....

With recently renovated rooms, this hotel and spa has it all: an awesome location because of its walkability to downtown shops and restaurants and cannery row, quaint, clean and updated feel, happy and friendly staff service, and a reasonable hotel price.
