Recently we took a road trip down the coast from San Francisco to Morro Bay, and our first overnight stop was in Monterey. I used Hotwire to purchase 3+ star accomodation and was pleasantly surprised with Casa Munras. I was traveling with my 87 (soon to be 88) year old Mom, and upon check-in they upgraded us to a room...

We are currently staying at the hotel. We bid for our room on priceline and were pleased upon arrival. It's an old hotel complex, lots of small buildings. The rooms have been renovated, but it's still an old hotel. It's clean, well kept, nice beds. The restaurant, lobby, and spa are very nice. room 112 is 10 feet from the...

Customer service above and beyond expectations! Quiet, clean, comfortable room with, as my wife called them, "Goldilocks" pillows; conveniently located within easy walking distance of a wide variety of restaurants as well as downtown; couldn't ask for more!

Best bang for your buck in Monterey. Great staff, awesome happy hour with fun tapas, easy 5 minute drive to the aquarium. Front desk told us about local happenings like the street fair and farmers market, very sweet. Bathroom was clean and ordinary, room was nice, not too modern where you fear breaking everything nor dated and ugly. Didn't use...

Casa Munras is adjacent to downtown and neighbors many Colonial buildings. On fact, the hotel itself has a genuine Monterey character to it. So, the stay is part of your Monterey experience. The hotel is wood-structured, so make sure kids are not above your room if you're on ground floor- get a new room if so, otherwise it sounds like...

After a very long day of sales calls and meetings including a business dinner, it was refreshing to get back to my room at Casa Munras and unwind. The room was extremely clean and quiet. After about 30 minutes of closing out my day and a quick shower, I slept like a baby in that incredible King size bed. I...

Just the facts: 1--This is a motel, not a hotel. You can drive right up to the door to your room (unless you're on the second floor). It features the open-air walkways of a motel, including the exposure to outside noise. 2--There is no view, unless you are in the single building overlooking the pool or the building with the...

Such a wonderful place. Clean, comfortable, and close to everything. The staff was over the top..so nice and very accommodating. Food and drinks at the restaurant/lounge were fabulous, reasonably priced and conveniently can be charged to the room! Won't stay anywhere else when I'm in town!

“Not room 110”

“Maybe a bottom room if you're staying only a night or two and have a lot of bags, as there are no elevators, but the stairs are not high.”

“Choose room 279. It's upstairs on a corner so it's quiet. The balcony is great for relaxing and you can see the ocean in the distance.”
