Just stayed after a long ago experience. Still as wonderful as I remembered..... Service at front desk was flawless at checkin.I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the room and I learned that we had been upgraded to a corner room on the top floor with a fantastic view. My only slight criticism would be that the bedcovers and... More

Just spent one night here but were very impressed. Excellent service, room was very cozy. Ours was not facing the water - we were a corner room so had a partial water view but could see all the cannery row livery. We will stay here again. Bed was very comfortable . It was plush but not too soft.

We spent the first night of our honeymoon here with the romance package ($100 towards dinner and in-room massages). The staff was incredibly helpful and set up dinner reservations as well as the massages. We didn't arrive at the hotel on time - but they were very accommodating, changed our dinner reservation and all with a smile on their face.... More

Wonderfully cosy and comfortable hotel right on the sea front at Cannery Row. We had a deluxe corner room overlooking the bay with an extremely comfortable bed and two armchairs in front of a fully working fire. Breakfast was served on a silver tray in our room in the morning which was wonderful but brings me to the only downside... More

Absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish. No words to describe the waterfront view room with fireplace. The level of service was top notch! As a traveler who usually stays in resorts, I was very surprised. There is not a better location around. Tons of sea lions playing all day outside your windows. I will defiantly be referring this place... More

Very comfortable beds. Our window was facing the street but I could walk out of our room and go on the rooftop and see a beautiful sunrise. Nice place and quiet. Right where all the action is and close the aquarium.

You certainly found one of the best views in the house! We hope that you also had the opportunity to experience our sunsets, which are equally as breathtaking. Should... More

Hard to believe I'm paying less for this ocean front gem than I did for a motel in Palo Alto earlier in the week. Absolutely lovely facility but with a few quirks. First the positives: Ocean view, fireplace, Aveda products in the bathroom, breakfast served in your room, engaging staff and right on Cannery Row. (Note that you will pay... More

You can't beat the water view, as long as you are looking straight ahead, look to the left or right and you are looking at a restaurant. I enjoyed hearing the water at night, but not so much the noisy people on the beach at 2 a.m., but that was not the hotel's fault. The breakfast was good and I... More

The Spindriff is a boutique hotel at the heart of Monterey's Cannery row, right by the ocean. The rooms are charming, with a working fireplace and comfortable bed. I understand that the ocean view rooms are something else, which I can easily image given the hotel's ocean front location and I would have absolutely loved the place had I been... More

We stayed here one night rather pricey but worth it on arrival they have valet parking and we were not waiting any more than a second or two before we were greeted by staff very nice indeed. The Inn is extremely well kept and clean and they have a cheese and wine meet and greet In the lobby between 4;30... More
