There are pros and cons at this place and I really wanted to love it, but the lack of sound-proofing made it very difficult to sleep. For the price, I felt like I didn’t get what I expected. Pros: clean room that had been updated. Nothing fancy-but I wasn’t expecting luxury. Our second floor, double queen room had a mini fridge, coffee maker, desk/chair and one other armchair. The room was on the smaller size with a large closet. The bath had a sink, toilet, and small shower. The beds were comfortable and there were extra blankets and a pillow in the closet. Lots of outlets and phone charging plugs. It is walking distance to shops and restaurants and a short drive to Cannery Row. Cons: Parking onsite is limited. We were lucky to get a spot in the lot but with a bigger car it was tight. The hotel is close to a well traveled street and next door to a gas station. That, along with old doors that are not sealed, is where the big problems were for me. The noise level on Friday was bad. Lots of car and motorcycle engines revving, along with horns and car alarms. It was like I was out on the street. We could also hear talking, laughing and noise from rooms near us, creaking floor above us, as well as noise from the gas station and street. This went on several hours after the 10 pm “quiet hours” and I lay awake getting more and more frustrated that I had paid so much for this room. Hearing all the birds and other wildlife all night and early morning was at least a more pleasant sound, but not great if you want sleep. The staff was friendly, but when I checked out I found it odd they did not ask how I enjoyed my stay. Maybe the owners know they have some issues but don’t want to hear about them again. I hope this place can improve their sound-proofing so that it is worth the prices they are charging during peak season. Bottom line, I would stay elsewhere next time I visit.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at the Stevenson hotel for one night. It was fantastic and in a great location for exploring Monterey as part of our road trip. The hotel provided free, secure parking. Ideal for our needs! The hotel is in a great location, a short walk to Alvarado street where you’ll find some lovely bars and restaurants. The wharf was also close for our planned whale watching trip. The rooms are well appointed, providing everything you’d need for a comfortable stay. The included breakfast was good with plenty choice. There’s also a nice swimming pool on site which we didn’t get a chance to use. Reception staff welcoming and helpful. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel and if we’re back in Monterey, which I hope we will be, we will definitely stay at the Stevenson.

Not a luxury hotel but a nice motel in a great location with great staff. Rooms were clean and roomy. A lot of construction going on during our stay but area did quiet down at night. Helpful friendly courteous motel desk personnel. Short walk down to the water and lots of great restaurants along the way. Limited parking
