To be honest I was expecting more from this "hotel". Its not really a hotel more of a glorified motel. The interior is dated no flat screen tv!! For the price I would have expected all mod cons there wasn't even a fridge to put your drinks in, or a safe for your valuables. If I had been staying longer...

If you are looking for a hotel with a warm welcome then look no further - even the rooms are equipped with a warm log fire. We only stayed for two nights but the customer service provided by the reception team, the staff we met in the restaurant, and the room service were warm, friendly and welcoming. The rooms are...

Staying at Casa Munras was good for my family for an overnighter whilst visiting Monterey Bay Aquarium. The hotel is located 3 minutes from Trader Joes and about 5 minutes from cantral Monterey so convenient to walk to dinner. The rooms where simple furnished and beds comfortable.

The hotel is arranged as a motel with halls outdoors in multiple two story buildings. My room was clean, comfortable, and good amenities. The immediate location is just OK, across the street from a 24/7 open Denny's and two blocks from the city transit center. Just beyond the transit center is the center of town/business district where I found a...

We are frequent travelers. We stopped in this place for one night, between longer stays in Yosemite and Big Sur. We had a great welcome at the reception. Then, we discovered our very small room with no cooling system. We were told that AC was not necessary in Monterey but that period of the year was more hot than usual......

Thank you for your stay and feedback. I am truly regretful that you did not enjoy our hotel and restaurant. Due to our coastal climate, many hotels in Monterey do not have air conditioning.

We stayed at this "hotel" for one night (September 15th) during a road trip from Vancouver BC to Los Angeles. We were sadly disappointed. Our room smelled musty, that's once we were able to get the door open. My husband had to force it with his shoulder, and in the morning had to wrench it back open. The hotel staff...

For a quick business trip to Monterey, Casa Munras was a great solution. I upgraded my room online to a 2nd Floor Concierge suite - not as fancy as it sounds, but high-ceilinged, very comfy and spacious with a fantastic shower and cute little fireplace.
