A Spanish hacienda in the heart of Old Monterey

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

Highlights
  • 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

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 Garden 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 Garden Hotel & Spa where an indoor fireplace and outdoor patio provide an unhurried atmosphere.

One night getaway

The front desk lady was very welcoming, she offered us a coupon for a free appetizer at a restaurant by the wharf and/or at Cannery Row. The complimentary cookies at the lobby were a plus. Rooms were nice and neat. Bathrooms looked like it was remodeled. No AC but there was an available fan in the closest for us to use. Overall great experience!

beautiful room, great service, Loved our experience

The hotel exceeded our expectations. Is a wonderful getaway for a couple. The pool was warm even in November, which enhanced our stay after a long day at the beach... Definitely coming back...

An ok stay

Room was clean and comfy enough for the cost .. decor a little odd on our bathroom .. and our room 296 was right next to and above from fitness suite and the kitchens which had generators/fans going all night .. would probably be fine if you are in one of the blocks further away.

Great property... bad management

The hotel is beautiful and situated just next to a lot of fun places. However, you cannot leave and return late because there is not enough parking. The management lets non-patrons (such as ATT trucks) park in the facility and you end up looking for parking outside where there is hardly any! Also, there was a loud party going on, we called and complained but the party kept on all night. So... I am not the complaining type but I can tell you I am not going back!

Great find!

Booked this hotel at the last minute while driving to Monterey and had no idea what to expect. It was a wonderful surprise and we will definitely stay there again when we return to Monterey! Staff was very nice, room was comfortable and we walked to the marina for breakfast in the morning (awesome crepes!).

2 Days in Monterey

Good location where you can walk about half a mile to fisherman's wharf. and downtown. Trader Joe's 2 blocks and Denny's across the street. My room was apparently low end. It was small but had a large flat screen TV. The reception on the TV was not good. Many channels had snowy reception. WiFi worked ok. Plenty of hot water in shower. There was some construction going on so areas were fenced off. No AC in my room so in an uncommon heat wave might be a problem. It was winter so the electric wall heater came on a lot. The bed was too soft. It sank in the middle. Was not firm enough for average person. OK if you sleep all night on your back but if on your side expect a back ache. I don't like hard beds, any average hotel bed is usually good enough for me except this one. Maybe other rooms have better beds.

Cute Hotel in Great Location

We stayed for a night in a King deluxe room with fireplace. The room was cute with a nice brick fireplace. The room was very large and had a separate shower and bath. The hotel was in walking distance to Alvarado street which had great restaurants, bars and shops. Overall it was a lovely stay.
