Don't let the outside of this motel turn you away. The newly remodeled rooms have been tasteful done with a modern flare. Our room had high ceilings, comfortable king size bed, fire place, refrigerator, microwave, thick towels, very large shower with great water pressure, free coffee and a nice large flat screen TV. We booked this hotel by mistake (we...

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room are nicely renovated and are very spacious. They have a coffee machine, a fridge and a microwave. The gas fireplace made the room very cozy.

On our recent road trip and tour of the Western US, we stopped overnight at Munras Inn in Monterety, California. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room (almost cavernous) with 16 foot high ceiling and roomy trapezoidal shape. The room had a nice fireplace, refrigerator, microwave and TV with premium cable. Closet space was very generous, and...

We booked to stay for three nights at the beginning of November. We were given a room the furthest point from the road on the road floor.

A really comfy room with quality fittings and superb fireplace....great on site parking and easy walk to Monterey. The hotel is well located for easy access to the stunning 17 mile coast drive through Carmel and access to the west coast route. Fully recommended !

Tried to check-in to our room at the designated time but was told the room wasn't ready but to come back in 45 minutes. We drove around town, came back, tried to check in again but were told it still wasn't ready and to come back in an hour. By this time it was getting annoying. We had dinner reservations...

An awesome venue to stay a few days. A bit of a walk, but the benefits are there. Beautiful room, amenities, friendly couple behind the desk. Really modern and updated. Clean and welcoming. The breakfast was the weak point, just packaged stuff as there is no kitchen and you just take back to your room and microwave, but it's all...

This motel is completely over priced, I was shocked when we arrived and went to the front desk and said we did not want to stay as it was not as advertised. They would not refund my card so then followed a farcical debate over the next hour where I was given all manner of excuses, eventually after I called...
