Thank you for staying with us while visiting Monterey for Christmas in the Adobes. That is such a great event and really showcases some of Monterey's rich Spanish history. Perhaps you chose Casa Munras for this reason as well? As you may be aware Casa Munras was the residence of the last Spanish diplomat to California, Don Esteban Munras. He...

Monteray is really beautiful and the 17 mile drive the best I have ever seen. But what made the trip memorable was the hotel. From the staff to the property everything was beautiful.

We have stayed at several hotels in the Monterey area but had never stayed here before. We were looking for a place close to downtown and close to our son's home.

This hotel was a nice surprise with just a couple of notes. First off, there is a spa on the property. I didn't visit it, but the menu of services offered seemed divine.

This a great location and within walking distance to everything. Always clean and the grounds are laid back and more like home. The staff are always friendly, professional and helpful. A good value for the price in general. It's a great couples get away as well.

Thank you for your recent stay and for taking the time to write a review. Cozy is a great description for the Casa Munras.
