Chose this place for location and price as well as their willingness to store bags for me while I biked down the coast. Glad to have found it- clean rooms, comfortable and spacious. Had friendly and helpful staff including proprietor Craig Smith who had some great local insight. Will gladly stay here again.

We stayed in a bottom floor room and i found to be noisy both from outside noise as well as being able to hear footsteps... More

We stop at the Stevenson for 1 night, while we were doing the Pacific Cost Highway and it exceeded our expectations. The room was big, comfy and clean, although the bathroom was a bit small. Parking was free! Complementary breakfast was pretty good, with toasts, yogurt, muffins, waffles, coffee. Its a good place to stop, for it is cheap and... More

We spent one night at the Stevenson, Monterey. It was convienently located (15 minutes walk from Fisherman's Warf). The rooms were clean and very large. The bed was comfortable and the shower was really good. The continental breakfast was good and comprehensive. It was a good place for a quick stop and I am sure it would be good for... More

Thank you for a very nice 4 star review. We truly appreciate all of our guests. We believe that everything should be clean and that everything works. We are now renovating our bathrooms and entire room with new carpets and curtains. The new, much larger marble showers, whisper quiet fans and new tile floors will reveal a great new look.... More

In Monterey for a conference, we chose the Stevenson as a lower-cost alternative to the official convention hotel. The Stevenson serves that purpose well. Pros: free parking; within walking distance of the Wharf, the meeting center and other attractions; clean and tidy rooms; good wifi; and a typical hotel free breakfast. The property has recently rebranded to an independent hotel... More

Good place to stay for the money. Close to everything. But a little too close to a busy street. The rooms are basic, but have everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. The shower was a challenge for anyone over 5 feet tall and the parking was a challenge, but free.

We stayed here for 1 night during the Half Marathon event. It was very convenient as it is within short walking distance to restaurants, the half marathon starting line and finish line. The hotel also is great in accommodating for the event. They started their continental breakfast at 5am instead of 7am. That was really nice. Their breakfast supply was... More

We travelled with a large group and so did not do the actual booking ourselves. We were here for 2 nights. The room was very clean, a little noisy due to the road nearby. The breakfast set up was not good at all. Far too small for the number of guests, even rotating seatings. The breakfast itself was pretty good... More

They have just changed their name from Travelodge to Stevenson hopefully they can manitain the level of service. VERY friendly and helpful front desk staff. Short walk to harbour and main street for food and drink. Small pool but a nice cooling dip. Recommended

Thank you for the 4 star review. We are proud to be an independent property. The Stevenson Monterey is our new name but we have the same great front desk service as always. Over 60+ restaurants are within 3 blocks of us. Monterey downtown has much to offer from the Wharf to Whale Watching. Come and find out! More
