“Nice hotel with great service”
Reviewed 23 November 2009

We got a room on Saturday night quite cheap on Priceline. The staff was very nice and they definitely did not treat us any worse because we had a Priceline room. We were given a queen room, and it was plenty nice. The bathroom was a little old and not quite as fancy but it did the job. The fitness center is good for one in a hotel with dumbbells up to 50 lb and a new adjustable cable weight machine. Certainly not a real gym but better than I expected. The restaurant also has happy hour until 7 pm every night with $2 sangria, $3 Stella or Anchor Steam drafts, $4 wine, and $5 mojitos. They also gave us a small appetizer sampler with our drinks which was a nice surprise.

We stayed in the Casa Munras for 3 nights at the end of September. There was little to complain about. The hotel is well placed to get to Alvardo Street for numerous bars adn restaurants, a slightly longer walk about 10 minutes gets you to old Fishermans Wharf and another 10 minutes walk is Cannery Row. Buffet breakfast in Estabar is good value although they may be cheaper locations nearby. We have stayed at 3 similarly priced hotels in Monterey and this is by an long way the best.

Happy hour is great at Esteban, and they have a great list of local restuarants in the area at the front desk. Make sure to ask

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The room was clean & comfortable, however...... we left the room at about 9:30 AM the next day to go sightseeing, & returned about 3 PM to relax. We found that the room had not yet been cleaned!!! Shortly after complaining to the front desk, a person arrived, and made up the room while we waited outside.It was the second time this has happened to us at this hotel. Apparently guests staying more than one night are low on the room cleaning priority list. Be forewarned that this may happen to you!!!!

Also, some advice about breakfast. There is a very well-run Denny's Restaurant right across the street where you can get a nice, quick, freshly made meal for about half what you'd pay for the breakfast buffet at the hotel.

Staff was very friendly, helpful. Room was clean and quiet. Lobby and restaurant quite nice. Would definitely stay here again. Not right in the middle of the high-tourist area, but that was fine with us; we enjoyed a great walk through the town farmer's market and saw other cool things we might not have enjoyed had we been right on Cannery Row.

The hotel has wonderful staff who strive to serve their guests. Although the queen rooms are bit on the small side, they are nicely decorated and have decent size bathrooms.

Free parking, WIFI and DVD movies. The hotel also offers at an additional charge a buffet breakfast that includes pancakes, toast, bacon, sausage, fruit, eggs, oatmeal, and juice. The service was very good.

Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel and look forward to returning.

Stayed in their deluxe king. It was a corner room in the back complex which is not as noisy as the ones up front. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. The rooms were thin, I can hear next door snore through the night. Great for the price but not close to the wharf/ cannery. There's a great bakery across the street. I thought breakfast buffet was a bit pricey for what was offered. Had a min frig and coffee maker in room. Wonderful.
