we stayed here for 2 nights in September on holiday from the UK. Location is really good, just a few minutes walk to lots of restaurants. The seafront is less than 15 minutes walk as well. The staff here are very welcoming and friendly, reception in particular. Room was smallish but perfectly adequate for our needs. Could do with a... More

We stayed here in the past, and the room rate was much lower, and included breakfast...so with the upgraded buildings, I thought the rooms were upgraded as well. We had a 2nd floor room, and the door faced away from the property. The windows are still single pane, and you could hear the parking lot conversations ... One group was... More

We spent a weekend at Casa Munras and enjoyed our stay. It was pricey but that goes for most hotels near downtown Monterey. The grounds have a cozy atmosphere and are well maintained. The rooms are small but clean although our bathroom smelled like someone had done a home perm in there. The "cozy queen" bed seemed closer to a... More

The breakfast was terrible and was 'nt worth the long wait. especially as we could not even get a breakfast tea, we were informed that there was a rush on the day before !!! . And... More

This is an older, motel-style hotel that has been thoughtfully updated from an estate. I stayed for three nights in a Cozy Queen room by myself. It had all the essentials except for AC, which I was a bit nervous every about. But the nights are chilly and between the open windows and fans, the room cools very nicely. Housekeeping... More

Meeting room was ok, but hotel room was miserable. It smelled like a funeral home and was really hot. No way to control temperature. I understand this is an old, historic place, but seriously.... A few upgrades are in order.

Thank you for your review. We are so sorry that the warmer than normal weather detracted from the enjoyment of your stay, but are very pleased to share that we are beginning guest room renovations this month. Included in the scope of the renovation plan is the installation of ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning in a majority of buildings.... More

A warm welcome and comprehensive information on the area at check-in got things off to a fine start. The rooms were absolutely charming with a fireplace to add to the ambiance and the service in the bar and restaurant did not disappoint.

We stayed at this hotel in late September 2014; my husband was attending a course, so we chose Casa Munras as it offered good pet facilities and was in a good location so that I would be able to exercise our dogs during the day. It offers a level of sophistication although it has motel style accommodation. The restaurant is... More

We had a really nice stay here. The guy who checked us in, Erik, was super helpful. The hotel is in a good location, a nice gentle 15 minute walk down to the pier. We had breakfast there as well which was good but there is a Denny's directly across the road if you prefer. Our room was right by... More
