A under average motel in old town. Close to the Fishermans Wharf. Far from Cannery row. A boring room with the road just outside. A gasstation as your next door neighboor. Pretty clean. We never had the breakfast. The tiny room served in was to depressing.

We stayed in room 201 (a corner room) which is a non-smoking queen room for two nights. I chose this hotel because of the price and reviews here.

The Stevenson Hotel is a great hotel, I would recommend staying here when in Monterey. Breakfast included is a great plus which included waffles, toast, eggs, muffins and cereal.

Always nice and attentive staff. Most rooms have been renovated. Great fresh waffle complimentary breakfast. It is within walking distance to downtown Monterey with many great restaurant options. The Stevenson provides free appetizers to some nearby restaurants as well. The water is just minutes away and also within walking distance.

Amazing location with high quality rooms. Very clean and the already included breakfest was great, including eggs, waffle, muffins and a natural orange juice that was perfect! There are a lot of things to do near the hotel including one of the most interesting streets in the town! Gretings from Brazil!
