No center hallways. Several small'ish buildings (upgraded motel buildings) with good sized rooms and nice amenities. Friendly staff. Free internet and parking. Well located. Wild Plum (across street) is great for breakfast. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf (1.5 mile walk to the Aquarium).

Thank you for your review. Yes, our rooms do open to the outside rather than to a central hallway. We do have great room amenities including Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting coffee, Lather brand bath and body products, and a luxurious Featherborne bedding. Thank you for noticing and for staying at Casa Munras. Sincerely, Sabrina Siino Front Office Manager ssiino@larkspurhotels.com

Outstanding place to stay. We were upgraded to a King room with a fireplace for only a minimal amount, even after booking via hotwire. Very clean room. Well maintained property. Pool area was gorgeous. Very good price point. Overall, outstanding. Would definitely stay again. 5 stars all the way.

My husband and I decided to embark on a roadtrip of the Central and Northern California Coast for our honeymoon.

My husband and I had a very pleasant two-night stay in this hotel in June 2012. Our room (corner room with two windows) had a simple, comfortable elegance. It was walking distance from the Wharf and several other tourist attractions. A special treat was a selection of DVDs and videos that one could borrow that had Monterey themes or connections....

Stayed here for a business conference at the Monterey Convention Center and overall had few complains. The bed was large and comfy and the rooms were kept quite clean. I didn't partake of the restaurant, but I got in quite late and they don't offer room service which I thought would be a nice thing to add considering they're on-site....

The staff were super friendly. Plenty of self-parking. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. Free internet. The only downside was the TV was small, and the reception wasn't clear.

Thank you for staying and for your review. Casa Munras truly does capture charms of historic Monterey. Many people are not aware of our rich history. Casa Munras was actually originally built in 1824 as the home to the last Spanish diplomat to California, Don Esteban Munras.
