Casa Munras has done a wonderful job of updating the property and keeping things modern and in line with the Spanish colonial styles in the region. The rooms were neat and clean and well maintained. I selected a king sized bed in a room with a fireplace and discounted breakfast via the on-line reservation system. We ended up in a lovely 2nd floor, corner room that was spacious and comfortable and romantic. The bed was a little soft for me, but after a day of walking around the aquarium and though all the stores at Cannery Row, I slept just fine. The fireplace puts out some heat and we were toasty in no time. We had dinner both evenings at the restaurant on site, Esteban. Breakfast you can order and pick up and take back to your room or eat at the restaurant. You pay for parking but its a very reasonable rate. There are a couple of "house cats" on the property so if you are sitting in front of the firepit just off the restaurant and see a lovely tuxedo cat, they are just making sure you are having a good time. Didn't get to try the Spa out this time....but we will be next time (already booked our weekend trip for next year). ~ Guest
We stumbled upon Casa Munras thanks to TripAdviser and are very glad we did. The hotel is a throwback to an earlier era when hotels had "grounds" and outbuildings and character. Casa Munras has all of that. Kudos to staff for being very responsive to our requests and questions. Kudos also for putting us (with 2 dogs) away from other guests (hotel was about 2/3 full and we had open rooms above and next to us for most of the stay). As for its location, not only is it close to the wharf area, it's also directly in line with the Fremont entrance/exit of Highway 1. Within minutes of leaving the hotel, we were on the highway for our day's adventure. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to any of our friends traveling to Monterey. ~ Guest
