We stayed on the 4th floor in an ocean view room. The room was lovely, and we so enjoyed opening the windows and listening to the waves come in and out, and the seagulls flying around. We loved starting a fire in the evenings in the fireplace, so cozy and romantic. All the staff we encountered were very, very nice,... More

We stayed during the week for my girls birthday, on the cannery row side. Got a 2nd room floor with balcony, the view of cannery row was terrific, not too busy, but a great place to have a drink and watch the hustle and bustle (people watch.) I read reviews of "too noisy" and "no a/c" and "old decor" but... More

Stayed in a beautiful ground floor ocean view room for two nights. On arrival late afternoon we were warmly welcomed with wine and cheese (available every afternoon in the hotel reception). We watched the seals and sea otters cavort in the water, the pelicans come in to roost, and numerous bird life on the rocks all from the window of... More

We had a quick getaway 2weeks ago and spent our 1 night at the Spindrift. It was everything the website said it was. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. We were on the 4th floor with a view of Cannery Row and enjoyed watching the tourists mill around. The wine and cheese hour was great and breakfast was simple, but... More

The Spindrift Inn was a one-night stop along our two week honeymoon traveling California. We loved our stay and were given a beautiful corner, window spread room. We chose to do the sailing package and had a great experience sailing with Captain Christian on a 2 hour private sunset cruise. As we arrived to the Inn, we were greeted with... More

Wonderful hotel for a couple of nights. Right on Cannery Row in Monterey as well as ocean view rooms. Very well priced for the area, but the building is showing some age. However, it is very clean and we thought the breakfast was nice. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. Parking is an extra cost and is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a romantic getawy and I absolutely LOVED this hotel. Our room faced the ocean (which was a little more expensive) but WELL worth it!! We had a large glass window and we could open parts of it and hear the ocean waves all night. In addition to the great view, our room had... More

This hotel has a superb location on Cannery Row and we have stayed here before. The view from our room of the bay was wonderful. Unfortunately, the rooms are a little tired (and we had their premier room) and the breakfast that is included is not what one would expect from a quality hotel. The staff are extremely nice and...

From the location, to the staff, to the rooms - everything about The Spindrift Inn is perfect. This was my third visit - this time, I was surprised by a sauna in my room right in the middle of the action on Cannery Row. I like to call the bed a princess bed because that is what I feel like... More
