My husband and i just got back from driving up the california coastline from Los Angeles to Monterey and back. we spent two nights at the Casa Munras in Monterey. It is currently being renovated, so there are areas that are blocked off, and the rooms are in a state of 'transition' new bedding, old furniture, new rugs, old bathrooms, etc.. each room is in a different 'state' as we looked at a few rooms. our first night was in room 525, this room has the new rug and bedding, old furniture and updated bathroom --it was not a good night's sleep... there was some banging that could have been in the pipes but all night long it kepts us up- in addition to being next to a dumpster by a nearby business, that the garbage men decided to back up a truck and empty at 5AM.. not good-- then some feral cats decided to wail for about 30 mins before someone yelled at them and chased them away... we had to move rooms for night number two.. we were moved to 222, a king room with a fireplace (fantastic customer service, i understand most of the noises we heard were out of the staff's control) so we moved to a new room, which was more quiet, however, the walls are thin, and you hear crying babies from other rooms, every car door that is closed, every car alarm that is set or unset... every door to every room that was opened and slammed closed... we are not light sleepers, but we were up most of the night with the noise. That was unfortunate, as the hotel is a great location, the staff is top notch, great service, super friendly, they love to help you with dinner ideas and reservations, Mike was good, Bob was GREAT - he suggested going on a kuyak (can not spell) in Moss Landing, and we saw TONS of otters and seals and sea birds, had a fantastic day of touring the slough. Monterey is amazing, and i can not wait to to back. the Grotto for seafood was good, and the Monterey Fish House was a gem.. i'd skip Cannery Row, it was not the highlight, but the Warf was nice, as was the 17 mile drive, and Point Lobos was amazing.
