Only one real complaint about this room. The only lighting available are from recessed can lights in the ceiling... with VERY bright lights. Two of these VERY bright lights are directly over the pillow part of the bed. We could not even read in bed because the lights were so bright. We ended up not using the lights and depending...

This hotel has two rooms with King bed and fireplace, and originally they put us in 24 which is half a level down from the parking lot. My partner was really unhappy being in the basement, so they moved us to 35 which has the same King and fireplace but a cathedral ceiling so it is nicer but on the...

Checkin was easy with a very nice lady behind the counter. The room was in the building across from the office, and the room exceeded any expectations. The WiFi was good at all times. The bed comfortable, the lighting in the room was set to provide light to the work desk without glare. Multiple USB power outlets throughout provided more...

First of all, this unassuming hotel is gorgeous and very spacious in the rooms and bathrooms. Recently renovated with great decor and fireplaces. I paid a third of what others were paying for hotels downtown and Cannery Row. Free continental breakfast that you bring back to the room( no dining room). They have breakfast sandwiches you can heat up, fruit,...

Don't let the outside of this motel turn you away. The newly remodeled rooms have been tasteful done with a modern flare. Our room had high ceilings, comfortable king size bed, fire place, refrigerator, microwave, thick towels, very large shower with great water pressure, free coffee and a nice large flat screen TV. We booked this hotel by mistake (we...

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room are nicely renovated and are very spacious. They have a coffee machine, a fridge and a microwave. The gas fireplace made the room very cozy.

On our recent road trip and tour of the Western US, we stopped overnight at Munras Inn in Monterety, California. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room (almost cavernous) with 16 foot high ceiling and roomy trapezoidal shape. The room had a nice fireplace, refrigerator, microwave and TV with premium cable. Closet space was very generous, and...

We booked to stay for three nights at the beginning of November. We were given a room the furthest point from the road on the road floor. We could not fault anything the room had two double beds, a fire, a lovely bathroom and plenty of storage. The car was safely parked outside. It was quiet, clean and a short...

A really comfy room with quality fittings and superb fireplace....great on site parking and easy walk to Monterey. The hotel is well located for easy access to the stunning 17 mile coast drive through Carmel and access to the west coast route. Fully recommended !
