Stayed at The Stevenson for 1 night on the way down the coast from San Francisco to LA. The staff were extremely helpful and informative, providing excellent local knowledge.

Thank you for your 4 star review. You liked everything about us and we appreciate it. In today's world we have found that some folk who smoke try to bend the rules to their advantage. Since we are 100% non-smoking we do try to emphasize that so that the room remains fresh smelling for the following guests in that room....

We stayed here for one night as we were just passing through Monterey. The room was clean and had enough facilities. The bathroom was small but very clean. We didn't notice the road noise and our room was on the road. We did have the heater on which could have blocked it. Breakfast was quite nice and bed was comfortable.

Thank you for your 4 star review. You liked the clean room and did not notice any sounds. You also liked the breakfast and comfortable bed. The decible level in our rooms is actually at 40 db's most of the day and night. That is equal to a quiet library. Please come again.

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...
