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 Hotel & Spa as the 19th century residence of Don Esteban Munras, the last Spanish diplomat to California.

  • Esteban restaurant and lounge serves breakfast and a tapas-style dinner menu daily
  • Sano Spa offers massage and body treatments and an outdoor spa garden
  • Complimentary self parking
  • Outdoor heated pool
  • Exterior corridor hotel built around a 19th century residence
Rooms

Guest rooms and suites at Casa Munras Hotel & Spa are a short walk from the beach - but be sure to take time to unwind in these warm, cozy spaces with a rustic feel and modern amenities. Expect pinewood furniture, basket weave side chairs, free Wi-Fi Internet access and L'Occitane bath products.

Features

With a fantastic location in the heart of Old Monterey, Casa Munras Hotel & Spa caters to guests who like to get out and explore -Fisherman's Wharf, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row are all nearby. Guests who are content to relax in their home-away-from-home are happy, too, with resort-style amenities like Sano Spa and Esteban restaurant.  

Dining

Embrace the Spanish influences at Esteban restaurant and lounge at Casa Munras 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.

Great cozy resort

Staff was very nice. A company whose name rhymes with SCHMORBITZ DIDN'T SEND OUR RESERVATION OVER, so Marissa at the front desk had to move some rooms around. She sent up a free bottle of champagne and was very helpful. Pool was decent, and the bed was nice and soft. The patio area was nice too. Fire pit, etc. We got some mojitos but they were terrible. Otherwise the place was great.!

OMG

I arrived much earlier than check in 11AM. The normal check in was not until 4pm. I asked if it might be possible to get in to the room earlier and I think his name was Rob said he would check. A few minutes later he said yes and that started out what was to be a wonderful stay. The room was perfect and comfortable. The property was very nice. I had dinner at their restaurant-spanish tapas style and it was great and the wait staff extremely friendly! It was a short walk to the water through town. I really enjoyed my stay. J

Going to the Aquarium

This was an easy to find Hotel with beautiful landscaping and a clean look to the facilities and grounds. The room was spacious, but our tv cabinet doors could have opened a little wider for better viewing by both beds, instead of just between them. The bathroom was clean and easy to put our items on the counter with ample space. The little fridge worked well and wasn't hidden or in the way. Parking was excellent and so was the staff. Will go back when visiting Monterey. Easy access to all the sites and restraunts all with walking distrance.

Your typical nice 3-star getaway

The staff is kind, very knowledgeful , and accommodating. There is nothing spectacular about the hotel and stay itself, but Casa Munras is a place I would recommend to others seeking a nice hotel in Monterrey for an affordable price.

No better than a road side inn

My girlfriend and I first arrived New Year's Day around 3:30pm to a quant little casita style hotel.The lobby was very nice as were the staff, once they assigned us a room which was around the back side of the facility where it seemed not so quaint. The parking lot was packed, the cars were pulled right up to the doors of the rooms, there was also a maintenance shed across from my room where a worker was sanding and refinishing furniture on this now not so peaceful afternoon.

Great stay

We had a great stay here, the hotel was perfectly located for a 15 min drive to Carmel and walking distance to the wharf and the aquarium. It was perfectly located for our needs that weekend. The hotel was priced great with a helpful staff and clean rooms. Definitely will stay here again when i am in the area.
