“Decent mid range accommodations”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The wife and I stayed here for a one night midweek get away. I made a reservation beforehand via their web site - our "traditional king" room was spacious with a comfortable king sized bed, mini-fridge, room safe, and cable TV. Free wi-fi is also available and I received a strong signal in my room. It was really quiet at night. There is a bar and restaurant on the property along with plenty of other dining and drinking options just a short walk away

I've stayed here multiple times, and have always enjoyed the friendliness and ambiance here. Every room I've stayed in has been a little different from the other, but they were all comfortable and clean! The beds are super comfortable and the bathrooms nicely appointed. The on-site restaurant, Esteban, serves a wonderful breakfast. It's just a short stroll to downtown Monterey and a short taxi ride to the wharf and Cannery Row. I don't even look at other hotels now when I'm planning on staying in Monterey. Love Casa Munras!

Room Tip: some of the king fireplace rooms upstairs have a nice view of the bay from the balcony!

Our room was clean and bed most comfortable bed we have ever had in a hotel. They knew we were celebrating anniversary and had champagne and truffles waiting.
Only negative is our room had adjourning room and woke me up at midnight with tv. Called office and they took care of it.
Restaurant was beautiful but breakfast was poor. Service good though.

This is my third visit to the Casa Munras Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here! Our fireplace room with King bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed dining several times at the restaurant on-site, Esteban. There are heaters and a fireplace on the restaurant patio- a nice place to relax at the start and end of the day. There are movie DVD's to be borrowed at no charge. Appreciated the in room coffeemaker and small refrigerator. Even bicycled at the fitness center. The hotel staff is efficient and friendly. A dispenser of flavored water and cups and a basket of apples are located in the lobby. Hot, fresh baked cookies are available between 3-5pm. Great location to the wharf via a short walk. Our first choice for great lodging at a reasonable price.

This was my second stay at this property. Each time I have had a wonderful experience. The room is exactly what I expected. The bed was very comfortable. Free parking. Easy access to route 1. The gym is small but it was exactly what I needed. I will be back my next trip to the area.

We were in the back building at the rear of the property - our experience elsewhere might have been different, but we could not sleep for half the night because there was Friday night unofficial street racing going on in the street next to our room. We checked out early on Saturday and spent Saturday night in another more expensive hotel, with much better sleeping conditions.

The hotel looks nice from the street, has a nice staff and the lobby area is very nice, but fundamentally it's a cosmetically updated 1960's motel with exterior room entrances.

You can do better in Monterey. You may pay a bit more elsewhere, but at least you can sleep.

Room Tip: Get a room in the center of the building complex.

Inns_of_Monterey, Manager at Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa, responded to this review, 24 April 2014
Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. They always love hearing from our guests. We were disappointed that your stay was less than enjoyable and want to apologize for the noise issue that prevented you from getting a restful night sleep. Casa Munras Hotel and Spa sits across 4 acres of land and is one of the more authentic properties in Monterey, being one of the first hotels in the area. We did recently acquire this property and are very excited to continue to improve the facilities. The lobby, Estebans, and the spa have all been renovated and we are scheduled to begin room renovations this fall. In the scope of our renovation plans we will be putting in double pane windows and new insulation to assist with preventing outside noise. We sincerely hope that you will consider staying with us in the future to experience all of the exciting renovations and upgrades firsthand.

Warmest Regards,

The Management of the Inns of Monterey
