The hotel has historical significance for the area but provides a very basic hoteling experience. The rooms are very small and have poor ventilation.After a shower the humidity builds up so badly you have to open the door for a while to get the room to clear. The lighting is poor in the room and the bathroom is clean but... More

We hadn't stayed at Casa Munras for 3 or 4 years and we hadn't been very impressed the last time as the lights were so dim we could hardly see in the room and the head waiter in the restaurant was grumpy and unpleasant.

Nice hotel. Clean and spacious rooms. We had a room with a fireplace, which was very nice, but it was hot in Monterey, so we did not use it much. The restaurant (Esteban) was very nice but pricey. It is within walking distance to the downtown area and Cannery Row. Great staff, nice pool and very comfortable rooms.
