I stayed at Casa Munras one evening on a drive from southern California to northern California. Monterey is a charming little town, and Casa Munras served its purpose for my needs. The check in staff was very friendly, providing a map of the area and recommendations of things to do / places to eat. Upgraded to a king room at no charge, which was very kind. The property almost reminds of an apartment complex, with several one story buildings, some with little porches out front. You could even park right outside your door, or steps away. Everything in the room was clean, and bathroom had both a stall shower and soaking tub. Plantation shutters on the windows. Only downfall was there was no air conditioning. Typically wouldn't be a problem in September I wouldn't think, but it was a tad warmer than normal. Plus, being a Florida gal, we are used to air conditioning everywhere. However, my room did have a ceiling fan and that did a good enough job for the one night. It is a short walk down the street to a Peet's for some coffee and breakfast, and maybe five minutes by foot to downtown Monterey and the Wharf.
The only downfall here is the internet service is terrible. I would get connected with a very weak signal, and then immediately it would disconnect. 15 minutes on with tech support did not help. Otherwise, it was a fine stay.
