“A romantic getaway”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This hotel is in a great location. Close to great restaurants, but far enough away from the more touristy area of Cannery Row. My only slight complaint is that our room (concierge King) is situated overlooking a busy intersection. I say "slight complaint" because I am a light sleeper and was awakened by road noise when it was raining, but my husband was not bothered by it at all. Beautiful room, huge soaking tub, fireplace, very comfortable bed. Well worth the price. I have stayed at another Larkspur property in Tiburon. Great experiences at both properties.

Great location. We left the car and walked everywhere. The hotel is very well kept and the staff is helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

We had a 2 couple in one room and there was plenty of space. Check-in was very easy, and finding the room wasn't too hard, although the hotel has a strange layout. The soaps and shampoos were very nice, as well as the shower head. The only complaint was the exhaust fan didn't seem to be working in the shower, which made it very hard to get dry after the shower.
The beds were very nice and comfy, as well as warm. The room had a programmable thermostat.
Walking to Fisherman's Warf only took about 10 mintues, so the hotel was in a great location.
The hotel is a bit old, but the rooms were very nice on the inside, with huge mirrors.
Only real downside is the weird layout and small parking spots.

Casa Munras is an older hotel that has been updated. The updating was done with care and attention to detail. The amenities at this small hotel abound. They have an onsite restaurant, spa, and fitness area. The also have complimentary wifi and a medium sized lending library at the front desk. When entering the lobby, you are greeted by the concierge, Nicolas, who will give you all the information you need for the area.

The rooms are spacious and include the standard amenities of hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Many rooms also have a fireplace or larger bathroom.

The hotel is within easy walking distance to fisherman's wharf and downtown with many restaurants and shops. It's also an easy drive to Cannery Row, the Aquarium and Carmel.

This is a great little gem in Monterey that's close to everything.

Room Tip: For a little bit more quiet, request a 2nd floor room. The on-site restaurant, Esteban, serves bre...

I chose Casa Munras to relax and have a break from life's small hassles so I was relieved to find that the staff there knew how to make my life easier.

The helpfulness of the staff really impressed me. A problem with my credit card on my arrival was solved with a minumum of fuss, and later when I hired a bike that turned out to be no good a colleague very efficiently found a new one and organised the hire for me. They were always ready with information about the area and how to enjoy it.

Stayed Feb. 24th weekend. Called to see if we could check in prior to 4pm and was told NO!
Checked in and was suprised by the size of the room...a bit smaller than I expected, but that was ok. Not impressed with the restaurant and bartender didn';t know how to make a Mojito (didn't tell me either). Denny's across the street which was great. I'll be back to Monterey, but not to Casa Munras

The staff is amazing! Checked in early with no fuss; directed to using their business center; walked us outside to show us directions. Room was perfect for two people to enjoy a cozy weekend together. Loved the updated bathroom and shower. Enjoyed the Sano Spa! Esteban was delicious! Cannot wait to come back!!!

Room Tip: Not all vending machines worked for grabbing a quick jolt of caffeine.
