We stayed here for 2 nights. Well we stayed here to try and save some money, we didn't save on zzz's. The area was noisy and although the staff were friendly it didn't make up for the basic things offered. More like a 2 star hotel than a 3 star. I would recommend asking for a room on the higher...

The Stephenson was a simple hotel but had everything we needed. Room was clean and the Staff were very welcoming. Breakfast was included. Great location - our favourite place out of our California road trip! Shops and restaurants near by and Monterey bay just a 10 min drive away

Thank you for wonderful 4 star review. You liked our clean room and welcoming staff along with breakfast and a great location. It was your favorite place in California! By the way you can walk 10 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf or Monterey Bay. We look forward to your return.

You get what you pay for and this place was reasonably cheap and relatively cheerful. It's really a motel that provides a basic breakfast. The rooms were clean and comfortable enough, although they were tired and in need of updating. The location was good however, and had free parking. It is on a busy road however, so we did have...

Thank you for your review. You liked our price, cheerfulness and cleanliness. You would like to see the room updated. Well, 41 of the 51 rooms have been completely updated in 2015. You recognize the value of our central location and being a smart traveler, brought ear plugs just in case. Please visit us and scenic Monterey again.

There's no getting away from it, this hotel maybe close to the town centre but it's along side a petrol station on a noisy main road. Dress it up as you will but the basic facts don't change. It's a basic motel room with a small basic bathroom. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom floor gets vacuumed but not washed....

I love the retro look of the hotel. There was a great breakfast for a small place: eggs, cereals, baked goods, and even fresh waffles. Coffee and tea were available all day. Friendly staff and other guests.

We found the Stevenson to be a well positioned, retro-feel motel which is clean & well preserved to it's original style. The only downside was the excessive vehicle noise from trucks emptying bins at the nearby garage at 6am each morning - peace shattering experience to say the least.

Thank you for a lovely 4 star review. You felt we were clean and well preserved to an original style. Actually we added air conditioners and that is something put to good use this last summer.

Stayed here because it was a lot cheaper a night than our usual stay place. Do NOT let the pictures fool you. The room was ok, except for the shower that leaked so bad, it took two large towels to sop up. Then the "repairmen" literally just helped themselves into our room while we were laying in bed, we got...
