After weeks of researching Monterey hotels via TripAdvisor, I booked the Spindrift Inn. Great location on Cannery Row. We had a rent car the whole time and getting in and out of the hotel was easy. I would highly recommend. I will say the "Queen" beds didn't seem to be the same size Queen beds we have here in Texas!

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Cannery Row, right on the water. I loved waking up every morning and sitting at the window looking out onto the water. Even though this hotel caters to couples and romantic getaways, they were also accommodating for our two year old son. When I booked the hotel, the advanced rate special... More

This is a nice small, waterfront hotel with a nice breakfast option built into your bill. A basic continental breakfast will be delivered to your room at the requested upon time. The inside was adequately clean without being spotless. The housekeepers were friendly and left extra towels upon request. The views were very nice waking up to a water view... More

We had stayed at Spindrift Inn some 25 years ago and loved it then. So we decided to see if it was still there and were pleased to find it to be. We found the area has changed a lot since our last visit, but the Inn is still as lovely and comforting as before. We loved the wood burning... More

OMG! Many of the hotels and B&B’s that we have stayed in should send their staff here to learn guest-relation skills from these folks. When we arrived, Paul and Marlene greeted us like we were long lost relatives. Then at wine hour, Rich Hurley, (we chatted and he is not related to the new coach of the men’s basketball team...

There's not much else to say about this place. The room doesn't matter, we had ocean view this time but you can't go wrong with the cannery row side either. Wear the robe and enjoy the most comfortable bed ever. Just go, I promise you won't be disappointed.

This place is in Cannery Row and has a beach literally touching the water. Its an easy walk to many of Monterey's main sights (including 5 minutes to the Aquarium). The hotel was beautiful and had valet (it was like $20/night). They had a nice wine/cheese reception that we enjoyed (with fireplace) and a cool rooftop patio. The room was... More

Loved this place! Windows open so you can get fresh air and hear the ocean. Two comfortable chairs and an ottoman face the wood burning fireplace where you can enjoy a glass of wine or their complimentary in room breakfast. There is also a complimentary wine & cheese happy hour in the lobby but we missed it. The inn is... More

We stayed for 3 nights and it is such a luscious hotel. The service is warm and helpful. The fireplace gives the room the most delightful warmth and scent. The bed is cushy and comfortable. The view over the water and sound of the waves is soothing. And it is down the block from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We try... More

We wanted to do something special to celebrate our 25th Anniversary and the Spindrift Inn did not disappoint. Wonderful hotel and staff. We needed to change our "non-refundable" reservation due to a medical issue. The management graciously let us come in a week later, with no extra fees. What could have been a stressful weekend, was instead a perfect weekend.... More
