Staff was great! Clean room, bed wasn’t very comfortable but not terrible. Carpet was old and pretty worn. Bathroom was narrow, not made for a larger person. Walls are fairly thin. Wasn’t in the room much, so no issues for me. Would likely stay again for an event.

Overall, enjoyable stay at The Stevenson Monterey

Pros: I was very impressed with the staff, who were friendly, professional and very attentive. The location was great, extra parking and the awesome bed!!!
Cons: If they have adjoining rooms, I would rent that out as a one unit situation where you knew the people in the next room, like families with children.
Location: Great Location, within walking distance to Alvarado St., which had a lot of dining options, bars, movie theatre, transit station, stores, gas stations
We want to give an honest review because after reading some of the other reviews we were a little shocked upon entering our room. The building itself is aged. You can tell the rooms have recently gone through renovations but they still show signs of age. The decor is minimal and the rooms are on the smaller side. The walls are thin (in the morning we could clearly hear our neighbor debating over what to wear for the day with his wife - and yes, he finally decided on the blue shorts!) but if you have quiet neighbors this shouldn’t be too much of an issue. We’re not sure if this is because we had a connecting room? We never heard our other neighbors! The hotel is also located next to a fairly busy intersection so there is noise from the street traffic. It seemed to quiet down around midnight on a Saturday night of Laguna Seca, an extremely popular motorcycle racing weekend in Monterey. That being said, we both slept amazingly well at this hotel! The beds are some of the comfiest we’ve ever slept in! The hotel staff is friendly and extremely attentive! After we checked out on Sunday morning they even offered for us to leave our car parked there while we finished up our time in Monterey. The location is also awesome! It’s a very short walking distance, about five minutes from the transit station and Alvarado Street, with some great dining options, bars, movie theater, stores and gas stations. Overall, we did enjoy our stay at The Stevenson Monterey!

Comfortable, affordable, great location

Pros: Location, cleanliness, breakfast
Cons: Parking availability
Location: Very convenient to Monterey activities, including the pier, Fisherman's Wharf, Aquarium
I stayed with my grandson for 7 nights. We booked eight nights, and they were kind enough to reimburse one night when we had to leave early. It's not fancy, but very clean and comfortable, with a nice breakfast and coffee/tea available 24/7. Great location to walk to Fisherman's Wharf and the pier, lots of restaurants nearby, and a free trolley. Parking is a bit tight for people with cars, but we walked everywhere and didn't have to worry about that. Some reviewers have commented on street noise, but that was really minimal. Things get pretty quiet fairly early and it was never a problem. I was most impressed with the front desk staff. Thanks for a great week!
