It's basically a converted road motel from the old days. The carpet is worn and stained. No water pressure in the shower. No soundproofing between the rooms and you can also head everything going on outside. The chick at the front desk was nice. This joint is way overpriced.

We want to thank you for taking the time to review Casa Munras Hotel and Spa. We are delighted that our front desk staff was so friendly, as our mission is to provide an environment committed to personal and attentive service. We are sincerely sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We have shared your comments with our housekeeping and maintenance staff to resolve the issues you experienced. We would also like to share that we will begin room renovations this fall and will be putting in all new insulation and plumbing. Regarding the rate; we strive to create an experience that our guests feel is valuable and are disappointed we fell short of this. We hope that you will be able to return soon to experience all the upcoming improvements.

Best Regards,

The Management of the Inns of Monterey

Clean. Non smoking environment. Super Bed/Feathery Pillows
Walking distance
to the aquarium, to many shops, within feet of a great meal at Estebans..Happy hour is incredible. /chicken+++
Far walk for elders. Get a cab.
I recommend going to the local grocery store, then find your private table, along the shore, bring binoculars to see whales, and a blanket, and a bottle to fill with ocean water to take home. Maybe a rock or stone too..as gifts

Room Tip: We were in Room 184. You cannot see it from the parking lot, its along a hallway.

We stayed here with family members late last summer. The location was very central and within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf (about 10-15 min.).

Rooms were very nice and clean, with nice amenities. The only small complaint we had was where our rooms were located - right across from the pool, which is always slightly noisy. Thankfully at night it was quiet and we very much enjoyed our stay!

Decent hotel with a good location. Walking distance to the wharf and plenty of restaurants. Comfy enough beds, wi fi, mini fridge in the room. Breakfast not included which is a bummer. The AC in our room wasn't working nor was the fan. All in all it was a decent place.

Our room was quiet and comfortable. There was a window fan provided to bring in the cool night air. The hotel is walkable to many restaurants and cafes. Check in provided a great map of the area directing us to area sites.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor at the back of the complex.

My wife and I as well as our little dog stayed here over Valentines day weekend. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, comfort and coziness of the hotel. As soon as we entered, we were greeted warmly by Cynthia, the Concierge. She and the entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about how helpful and friendly Cynthia was. We stayed in the King Concierge room as an upgrade and were not disappointed. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Only negative was a little street noise, but it was minimal. We would certainly stay in that room again. The restaurant and staff there was awesome. We loved the small plates and more importantly, the quality of the food. The outdoor patio was another big bonus. Since we always travel with our small dog, we loved how he was accepted by the staff. This is a must stay for us next time back to Monterey.
