Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa captures the true spirit of Monterey, with a blend of warm, casual guest rooms, elegant dining and outdoor spaces that invite guests to linger in cool Monterey evenings. Whether guests are here for business or pleasure, they find a few quiet moments to relax in landscaped courtyards, by the pool or with a massage in Sano Spa. The Spanish-inspired Esteban restaurant calls on the origins of Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa as the 19th century residence of Don Esteban Munras, the last Spanish diplomat to California.

Dining

Embrace the Spanish influences at Esteban restaurant and lounge at Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa where an indoor fireplace and outdoor patio provide an unhurried atmosphere. A mouthwatering array of selections - like grilled Spanish sausage, crab salad and grilled peach - may make it hard to choose. Order several at a time and keep coming back until you've tried them all.

Rooms

Expect pinewood furniture, basket weave side chairs, free Wi-Fi Internet access and L'Occitane bath products.

Great trip with good friends

Had a great time, went with two other couples.We were a little disappointed that we were not told that``happy hour only included one drink and a couple of house wines that were discounted, but the service and the food were excellent!! The coffee maker in the room did not work but we were well compensated. All in all we were well satisfied with everything.

Good for the money.

This an older hotel, there is no air conditioning, if you are there on a day over 80 degrees then you will a but uncomfortable. The walls are thin, so noise can be a problem. The office staff is friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant the food was good, but our waiter was very forgetful.

Great location, close enough to walk everywhere!

The mattress was way too soft, probably old and needs to be replaced. The staff, grounds, pool, restaurant and my room were very nice. We ate breakfast at the restaurant and the food was very good. I only have one complaint, you have to pay to use the hot tub!

Casa Munras is the Best!

I arrived early and the staff was most accommodating about letting me check in early. Super great because i had a business meeting and really wanted to freshen up before. Best beds and bedding ever! Casa Munras is definitely our go-to place!

Anniversary trip

We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon about 1:30 and had to wait till 3:30 for our room the place did not seem very busy but I understand check in is at 4:00. We had a remodeled room which was good, in the past we have had some pretty tired rooms. The walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors . It really is just a motel style and not 3 star. The hotel sent us a bottle of wine for our anniversary which was nice. If you want to walk to fisherman wharf this is a good choice. I do think there are nicer 3 star hotels in the area.

Motel style rooms with zero sound insulation

I wanted to love this place. It looked so cute, nice and warm from the outside as I drove in to parking lot. The lobby, the hacienda like structure that houses the office and the restaurant, and the flowers hanging around everywhere... That should have been the sign. When the packaging is so good at a normal price level usually the product is not. And it was not. Here is how it went: - The rooms are absolutely not hotel type. They are similar to those you find at Motel 8 or Roadside Inn etc. They are motel rooms. Right outside your door people are walking into their rooms, rolling their suitcases etc. If someone next to you sneezes, actually forget about sneezing, if they sigh heavily, you hear them. Add one of the most uncomfortable mattresses I slept on for years, you get the perfect formula for insomnia. The gym was a joke, One central machine, a few dumbbells and a whole lot of empty space. I saved the shower water pressure issue to the end, because of the drought California is going through, but I have a sneaky feeling that it had been the same before the drought as well. Long story short, Monterey is FULL of hotels, take a careful look and go stay elsewhere. Cheers!

One night getaway

The front desk lady was very welcoming, she offered us a coupon for a free appetizer at a restaurant by the wharf and/or at Cannery Row. The complimentary cookies at the lobby were a plus. Rooms were nice and neat. Bathrooms looked like it was remodeled. No AC but there was an available fan in the closest for us to use. Overall great experience!
