"Never again"
The full-size double bed hotel room was incredibly small. As compared to the other hotels in the area, I have had the worst experience. Upon check-in, I was assisted by the front desk staff, Bob. Bob made some inappropriate jokes and gave a very uncomfortable vibe. When I had asked to see what the upgraded room would look like, he went behind the desk and asked a maintenance man to show us the room. He deliberately made jokes to make himself more superior then his staff in order to feed his ego. When I checked out, I heard a woman in heels walk across behind me. Rather then focusing on the customer in front of him, I caught him glaring at the woman as she walked out. Total creep. In terms of the room, again, it was small, poorly lit, and smelly. There was a stain on the comforter. Bathroom was clean. 2 out of the 3 light bulbs were lit. I had requested the bulb be replaced and within 20 minutes, it was done. The bathroom has a tiled stand-in shower without light. Very dark. TO have paid over $200 for one night, I was really disappointed. Would've had a better experience at Best Western. Positives: was able to check-in an hour early. The facilities crew changed my bulb quickly.

We had a nice stay at the hotel. Unfortunately, we had noisy neighbors above us that kept us up through the night. Also, the pelicans were up early squawking which was kind of annoying. We had breakfast at the restaurant, which was very nice and the service was excellent.

I liked the area since it was close to everything we wanted to do in Monterey. We booked a room with two queen beds. It was so tiny and not what I expected, especially to move around. Overall, it was neat. We did get a good nights rest. The beds felt like giant pillows :)

"R&R in Monterey"
Casa Munras Hotel is conveniently located in the the downtown area. A walk to Alvarado Ave. or the Fisherman's Wharf is only minutes away. The Del Monte Shopping Mall is located 10 minutes away by car. I enjoyed leaving the car behind and walking or taking the trolly to my destinations; Aquarium, Pacific Grove, etc.

We made this reservation at the last minute so I wasn't expecting much. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised. This place is small but very nice. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, roomy and clean. The place is close to quite a few restaurants and attractions. Two blocks from the hotel there is a trolley that takes you around the city... most importantly to canery row. we will be back the next time we are in Monterey

"Central location; newly remodeled room"
Casa Munras is a historic property, with many newly remodeled rooms, a spa, a restaurant, and many guest amenities. Check-in was prompt and friendly, with a complimentary upgrade from a queen to a king room with a fireplace, new hardwood floors, and newly upgraded bath. Bedding was very comfortable - so much so that we checked out an hour later than usual (check-out is at 12 noon). The location is very quiet and restful. There is a Denny's restaurant right across the street - didn't have a chance to try out Esteban's, the hotel's restaurant.

It was a very comfortable stay. I would stay here again, although they should have more ice machine installed, had to drive to get the ice. Also, we had breakfast and they wasn't enough staff on the busy long weekend, they should have known it would be busy and had more waiters in, busy boys and cooks.

"Pretty good, but let down by the details"
Chose this hotel because unlike many in Monterey they allow a single night stay on weekends. The room was comfortable and very clean and although it's not near the tourist attractions of Monterey there are restaurants etc nearby. The small things let it down slightly, e.g. being woken by the world's loudest vacuum cleaner in the room next door, slow service at the bar (and the dirtiest glass I've ever seen) and having to park a long way from the room when arriving late at night (parking lot was full). Construction was occurring outside our room during the day but I assume that is temporary. For the price I expected more (especially given strong reviews), but it was adequate.

"It's noisy and packed."
We arrived on Thursday for our wedding anniversary. We reserved a king size bed and deluxe room but the room we got was a small, dark room with queen size bed. We immediately complained to the staff and he exchanged a much better room for us. There is no curtain in the room, at 6:30am the room was very bright already and there's no way for us to sleep in any more. also, the hotel is now under construction so the drilling noise keep us awake every morning. We were disappointed at this hotel for our wedding anniversary as its noisy and packed with people. If you want a quiet hotel, please choose another one.

"Lovely place to stay"
I loved this place! It is made up of several two story buildings with the feeling of a luxury compound. There is a lovely outdoor seating area with fire pit in the hotel restaurant. The room was nicely decorated and quiet. They might want to consider upgrading the counter top in the bathroom soon as it was the only thing that screamed "dated" in the whole place. But it wasn't that big of a deal. It's in the downtown section of Monterey which I discovered is rather depressed. I wish the hotel was in the more "happening" Cannery Row area. The only bit of my stay that was not ideal was one of my treatments in their spa. I booked the massage/facial combo special that they had going on for June. My massage was excellent; my facial was the worst one I have ever had in my life. The woman was sweet but I don't think she had ever given a facial before. Very timid and hesitant touch, no cooling eye treatment - or any eye/neck treatment - at all. The products were unremarkable. Very disappointing.

"upgrade"
The staff wanted to know if we wanted to upgrade to the 'new' redecorated rooms for $20 a night (for two nights). We did upgrade, I don't know how much upgrading there was, there was nothing to compare it to. On the flyers it stated quiet time was 9 pm to 9 am. At 7 a m we were awaked by pounding noise and talking. We had our windows open (we were on the first floor). When we looked outside there were workers at our windows doing yard work. When we talked to the staff about it they said they would take off $20 for one night only because the workers are only there on Mondays. When it stated it had a spa, we thought that meant there would be a hot tub, no such luck. The staff was friendly, the setting was nice.

Decent enough, but the advertised WI fi on the sign outside has to be paid for and only with a pre paid WI fi card. Then on top of that if the hotel is busy there will be too many people using it to be decent. Also there is no shampoo in the showers. Or a clock in the whole room.
