We spent one night here during our trip and we're pleased that it was only one night and not more! To say that this hotel was overpriced is an understatement, very basic room nothing special at all, very soft and uncomfortable bed and pillows. The room was furnished in a very minimalists way, seemed to be very old and outdated....

Stayed here one night on our way t LA from San Francisco. Lovely place, easy to locate and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great. The waffle maker is a treat! Would stay again.

Even though they say continental breakfast, they actually offer more e.g., juice, tea/coffee, muffins, oatmeal, boiled eggs, mandarins, cereal, and ready to make waffles..The rooms are large and beds are comfortable. For a day or two, it is very centrally located and good.

Thank you for a great review. You appreciated our free continental breakfast and our central location. Our guiding force is everything is clean and everything works. Come enjoy Monterey in a most central location to discover Monterey on foot.

Nothing fancy, but room was spacious, well-appointed and well-lit. I didn't notice street noise. Three-story building with elevator that services underground garage. Staff were friendly. Easy walking to downtown attractions.

Location was perfect for downtown strolling in Monterey. The property looks like a thrift hotel from the outside and is a bit better on the inside except for some little quirks. We thought our key card didn't work. My husband pushed the door several times and finally it burst open with a loud boom. Scared me! The room didn't feel...

The room was clean and spacious. There was free wifi. The staff was helpful. The breakfast is pretty simple, but included in the price.

My friends and I stayed at the Stevenson for my birthday trip to Monterey in December and it was great! Angy was so nice and helpful in showing up where things were on our map since we were clueless. I'd stay there again for sure!

I stayed here for 3 nights this past week by myself while I was visiting my daughter who is attending school in Monterey. The staff bent over backwards to make me comfortable and fix my remote control, and later, the hair dryer. I met the owner who handled any requests personally. Very friendly and helpful. My room was quite comfortable...

Place is nicely kept up.Angy was especially helpful showing me how to use several pieces of equipment at breakfast- very friendly. I would suggest some weatherstripping under the entry doors to eliminate some of the street noise and wasted energy of heater. You could see daylight under the door.
