This hotel was pleasant and the breakfast was very good. The breakfast service was nice - Angy, the woman who takes care that the breakfast is in order was very nice and helpful. I strongly recommend this hotel. And it's very close to Alvarado Street, which hosts nice restaurants.

Ok, its not the Marriott. For a budget type motel it was wonderful. Easy waking distance to old downtown and the wharf. Clean and comfortable rooms in an older three story motel. The included breakfast was not much, but it was there if you wanted something to eat. I would stay there again if the price was right because of...

I don't like giving bad reviews unless I really experience poor service and I am ripped off and I did at this place. I've stayed here a few times in the past and I have to say that it's really not that good of a motel and I've stayed here because it is convenient for my purpose and people used...

Clean property within walking distance of the wharf. Comfortable bed, typical motel room although bathroom had shower only, no bathtub. Staff was friendly (especially Ange) and very helpful. The price was right for two nights. Nice, simple, free breakfast provided. Ample free parking as well.

Nice and clean room, friendly staff, and a special thanks to Angy, who made me sugar free waffles for breakfast! Location was super for us, short distance to the sea, and at the same time surrounded by restaurants and shops. We got surprisingly much value for our money.

A good value, but no frills. Our first impression was concern and disappointment, as it doesn't have the curb appeal and polished look represented in its pictures. It is a three story motel-style building with some rooms isolated at the far end of the structure, and unsupervised underground parking and an old and slow elevator. (The choice is to walk...

It's great for a cheap and cheerful one night stop over. Good location with very nice and helpful staff. The rooms were spotless and comfortable, bed was really comfy too. The shower was a bid psychoesque but it did the job. All in all this place is fine.

We were welcomed and treated respecfully. Our room was on a corner and was very well appointed and comfortable. We slept soundly and then breakfast, which was included in the price, was expedited by Angy, a lovely lady who showed us how to make waffles.

Stayed 1 night in October. From first external appearances you'd be forgiven for giving The Stevenson a miss. The 2 storey motel is tucked away on a small lot behind a petrol (gas) station on an intersection. (Almost as if at one time in its life the land area included where the petrol station is now located) Get past that...
