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 !

Clearly been updated. The rooms was gorgeous. Big and everything you needed. I guess the only downside is its a drive to get to anything, that didnt bother us though.

Tried to check-in to our room at the designated time but was told the room wasn't ready but to come back in 45 minutes. We drove around town, came back, tried to check in again but were told it still wasn't ready and to come back in an hour. By this time it was getting annoying. We had dinner reservations... More

An awesome venue to stay a few days. A bit of a walk, but the benefits are there. Beautiful room, amenities, friendly couple behind the desk. Really modern and updated. Clean and welcoming. The breakfast was the weak point, just packaged stuff as there is no kitchen and you just take back to your room and microwave, but it's all... More

This motel is completely over priced, I was shocked when we arrived and went to the front desk and said we did not want to stay as it was not as advertised. They would not refund my card so then followed a farcical debate over the next hour where I was given all manner of excuses, eventually after I called... More

We booked this hotel the night before required as due to the wild fires we had to change our holiday route. On arrival the building looks like a motel and the corridors to the rooms were concerning. There is an exit into the Main Street which isn't locked at night so anyone could wander in. However, the rooms were spacious,... More

Let me preface this review by stating that I understand the concept that “One must sell peanuts when the circus is in town”. We were in town for Monterey’s Car Week & had stayed in this neighborhood on 2 previous visits. We chose the Munras Inn largely based in the room photos posted on the internet. To be clear, the...

I was pleasantly surprised by the Munras Inn. The rooms are clean and really nicely furnished, and the beds are comfortable. Our room also had a gas fireplace which was a surprise.

We stayed one night en route to San Francisco. We arrived much later than expected at night as roads into Monterey closed due to forest fires but the man on reception was very welcoming and friendly.
