good location, clean and tidy room. Staff very helpful and friendly. Car parking was free which is unusual for California. Not sure the amount paid was worth the money in comparison with others we stayed at in the State but i guess that is Monterey on car week. Location is central to restaurants, bars and beach front which are all... More

Free parking, free wifi (bit patchy on 3rd floor) , free breakfast. Free tea and coffee 24hrs. All very welcome after staying in San Fran. The rooms are basic but big, beds were comfortable and the shower was nice. Not far from the main drag of restaurants, short walk to cannery row but it's nice and scenic. There's a Denny's... More

Used this hotel as a stop on our road trip. Received a nice welcome, went up to find ourselves a cosy room with a nice bathroom. Less than a 15 minute walk to fisherman's wharf.

All rooms open up to the street/corner gas station. Unit 1am every night, there was the continual sound of cars revving and racing through the intersection outside. Then from 4am-7am there are delivery trucks coming into the gas station. Really hard to sleep through the noise. On the positive side, the location is a short 1 block walk from downtown,... More

We had the nicest stay at the Stevenson Hotel. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very clean. They have an elevator that made it really nice for my Aunt how walks with a cane. They have underground parking also. We would stay again.

You get a clean room and bath, walking distance from some nice spots (not the aquarium), directly behind a gas station. To go to the aquarium you can take a bus, the bus station is very close. But the price was for me a little bit to high. It is not the first line and it is not first class.... More

The hotel has lots of parking available and we were staying in a good sized room with a comfy bed.
