We were there for a night and it was a clean room, in a good location, free wifi and free parking places. The breakfast was continental and coffee and tea is free for the whole day. To the fisherman's wharf you have to walk just 10-15 minutes. Only the rooms and the furniture are a little bit too old and...

My friend is visiting the US from Kazakhstan so I took him to Monterrey to experience the coast a little bit. I liked the location of the hotel since it's within walking distance to downtown and was within my price range. Towels were scratchy but I guess that's to be expected from being washed thousands of times. Underground parking was...

I discovered the Stevenson Monterey because of it's location. It is within walking distance of everything, and yet free of the warf hotel's prices. We travel all over, all of the time. The Stevenson is a bit "Motely" when viewed simply by the exterior. No surprise there. The surprises are in the remodled rooms, with GIANT beautiful showers. (finally a...

Decent hotel in a relatively good location. You can walk to the wharf if you're up for it. Lots of good restaurants and shops along the way. Stayed three nights. Outside traffic sometimes loud. Bring earplugs. Friendly helpful staff. They strive for five stars. They aren't quite there but their efforts certainly show. Nice little continental breakfast. Free coffee and...

I stayed one night on a business trip. This is a very basic motel, probably built in the fifties or sixties. But it has an elevator and a free underground garage (one star for that). It is clean and the personnel is helpful--another star. The breakfast is a tad better than the most basic "continental breakfast" you get in economy-class...

This is not the usual or normal experience of the guests who stay with us. We apologize that your shower did not have the new dish we are placing in rooms. WE are working on that today. We are walking distance to downtown Monterey with over 50+ restaurants within 3 blocks. Many of our regular guests truly appreciate our convenient...

From the time we checked in the staff was fabulously helpful showing us exactly how to buy tickets to the aquarium (you can get two days for the price of one through the hotel), telling us which was the fastest line (members), how to take the public transportation. This kind attention to detail showed throughout. Although the motel is older...

Thank you for a really nice 4 star review. We appreciate it! You liked all of our staff and wrote we have been "updated with great amenities- good flat screen TV, small fridge and coffeemaker, redone modern bathroom, good towels and bedding. The price and location were great too!" Come back again soon!

It's my first time staying there and staff there are friendly to give directions. It turned out that all the things I need, from groceries and wine store (TJ), nice seafood restaurants (old fishermen wharf) and craft beer microbrewery, are within walking distance. Breakfast is free and is adequate. There's also a hot and cold water dispenser available all day...

People need to apply some common sense before booking or reviewing. Noise has been mentioned here in reviews, and it's worth discussing. We stayed four nights here and yes, it can be noisy. One of the best reasons for staying here is the location - right downtown, walk around city center, walk a few blocks to the wharf - GREAT...

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....
