Monterey CA Hotel Reviews

“The Munras Inn was awesome! The room felt huge and luxurious. The bed was so comfortable, the fireplace was excellent, and the shower was massive. The noise level through the walls was minimal. It was always quiet and felt very private. The hotel was also easily within walking distance from downtown and everything Alvarado street has to offer. This hotel is well worth the its reasonable prices. We could not have been happier.

“We choose this Inn totally by accident (there's many to choose from on that street), but were so happy with the experience that can totally recommend the place to everybody. We asked for room prices and got a real nice and big room (with fireplace) for the price we would've paid just for a normal motel room somewhere else. Wifi worked well, service was super friendly and the place was tidy. Would stay again!“

“My wife and I stayed in the king sized room for one night on our way down highway 1. The room was clean and spacious and it even had a working fireplace!“

“This place is under a new manager. She is warm, friendly, and she will do everything in her power to make us feel right at home. We have been coming for years, and we notice new improvements made to the property already! The price is right, and there's nothing like being appreciated as a guest. Will be back soon! Thanks a million. The Linares from Fresno, Ca.“

Great place to stay!

Munras Inn, a few miles from the Monterey State Beach and all other sites made it very ideally located for us. We found the room to be very spacious, clean and comfortable.
The management and staff were very friendly and the service was excellent which made our stay at Munras Inn, a very pleasant one.

I highly recommend this place!

I saw Munras Inn hotel on yelp while I was looking for a budget hotel to spend the last few days of summer in Monterey. At first I was a bit hesitant because there were only few reviews to rely on, but I was happy with my decision and book 2 rooms and 2 nights in this hotel. My husband and I traveled with our 2 little kids, I got 2 rooms because I have assumed that the rooms are going to be very small. To my surprise, both rooms we got are really larger than a typical budget hotel that my kids can literally run around. The rooms are nicely decorated, really made us feel that we are on a vacation. Only thing I noticed is that there's no flat screen TVs, but we didn't come here to watch TV but enjoy the outdoors with the kids! I highly recommend this place and we will definitely come back!

Great fireplace room with sea view

We were delighted by the spacious room, the bathroom, the fireplace and the view over the bay. The service was also great and the staff was very hospitable. All in all, a lovely and cozy place to stay, especially when the fog is rolling in in Monterey.

Loved it!

Yes, it is small and kind of out of the way BUT it was a beautiful room with a fireplace and a queen sized bed, TV, and bathroom. The mattress was extremely comfortable and we were given a complimentary bottle of sparkling cider with rose petals on the bed...and we didn't even have to ask! Very sweet at the front desk and there's a bit of breakfast in the morning. I would definitely recommend it! :)

“I would stay here again ”

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and it was way beyond what we had expected. We booked the two queen room as it was the last room available on When we got there, the man working the front desk asked us if we'd like a king suite (room 13) instead for the same price. We were shocked when we walked into a newly renovated, beautiful and spacious room. Large window taking up an entire wall but thick curtains to...

Review from TripAdvisor on January 2016“


I expected very little for this hotel since it is not in the center of touristy area.
the first day we arrived, the receptionist was so helpful and she was proudly giving us the newly renovated room. I was so impressed with the room. New air-con, new bed, new painting, new bathroom. Everything looks very new.for $110 a night + 10% discount, i was pleased. will definitely come back and stay here again.

“Great Find”

On first impressions of the Munras Inn the colour of the building could really 'colour' your judgement but just step inside one of the rooms and you will be impressed. All rooms have recently been refurbished to a very good standard. The checkin was quick and easy and the receptionist very welcoming and helpful. The continental breakfast was good. Location was great...10 minute walk to all attractions....i'd book again.

”Newly Remodeled”

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 thought we were staying at the Casa Munras) but were pleasantly surprised... continue reading

First of all, this unassuming hotel is gorgeous and very spacious in the rooms and bathrooms. Recently renovated with great decor and fireplaces.

“Great surprise re cleanleaness and size”

We usually stay at the Marriott hotel chain when we travel, so I had very low expectations when I booked the Munras Inn. I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find a large size room, nice size shower and the cleanleaness was an A+. Definitely recommended!

“ Cool Comfort”

We were attending a wedding in Monterey and it was suggested we book a room at Munras Inn. It was centrally located to the wedding and reception venue. It happened to be the hottest weekend in Sept. and everyone was headed to the coast to escape the heat. We called ahead of time and the staff made sure we could check in early. Our newly remodeled room was cool and comfortable. We were able to lay down for a couple hours after being on the road for 4 hrs and have plenty of time to get ready. The nicely lit bathroom and... continue reading

“Great location.”

The pictures on line are accurate. My room had fairly recently been redone. It was extremely large and for the most part clean and nice. The bathroom could use some new paint and cleaning. And, I was never able to get the gas fireplace to come on. Location is great and within walking distance to town and numerous restaurants.

We had read the reviews, which were really, really good and they were really, really right! The outside is absolutely nothing to look st but the rooms were outstanding, particularly the 2nd floor rooms! They are very spacious, have a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood & a fireplace! The closet was very large for a hotel & had full length mirrored doors. There were 2 very comfortable chairs & a... continue reading

Munras Inn was an incredible experience. We have stayed in Monterey many times. Most of our trips have been Pacific Grove and a couple of stays in Carmel. We found Munras Inn more affordable at this time. The staff Jenny and Cory, were just amazing! Spoke with Cory regarding reservation, which she describes many of the rooms available.

“Very modern, updated room. Our second floor room had a vaulted, wood beam ceiling, a lovely gas fireplace, neat decor, a microwave & a fridge. Room was very modern & updated (hard to find in Monterey). Sort of an Art Deco style decor. Bathroom was very modern with a huge, walk- in shower, with plenty of water pressure.

"So Pleasantly Surprised!"

This place took us in after another hotel in town proved a horrible disappointment (Monterey Tides). Simple from the outside, our delux room with a balcony was very reasonable, pleasant, well designed and clean. Newly renovated. The staff was just great. Parking tight but quite possible. Balcony rooms on the back of the second building are quiet and overlook a quiet residential neighborhood and further off, the Bay. Stay here and you'll save a ton of money, sleep well, and have lots to do in Monterey, which is close by!
