This lovely hotel is in an excellent location on Cannery Row, in walking distance to all sorts of shops and restaurants, the Aquarium, and an amazing running/biking trail that goes for miles along the coast. I was excited to see a Starbucks nearby, but never set foot in the door due to the wonderful breakfast that's provided by the Inn.... More

What a wonderful experience! Have stayed here before but this time the wildlife outside from seagulls, dolphins and whales were all giving us a show. Bravo!! What fun! This hotel is so centrally located tucked into Cannery Row. It is within walking distance to the aquarium, four star restaurants and very close to the Monterey Wharf. The rooms are so... More

We stayed in room 204 of the Spindrift Inn for two nights. We were in heaven. The room was appointed beautifully, including a fire place, sitting area, bay window, binoculars, fridge, and coffeemaker. They deliver a light breakfast to your door and there is a wine and cheese reception nightly. We slept with the windows open all night while we... More

We only stayed one night, but I look forward to another longer stay. The room was luxurious yet cozy. The bed was so soft, and the fireplace a nice bonus for a cool night. We loved the rooftop deck where we took our evening wine from the wine tasting area in the lobby. The staff was very helpful. We had... More

Stayed here for 1 night during our one week drive from Riverside to San Fran. We stayed at a different hotel along the coast each night and this was definitely our favorite stop. We had our 2 teenagers and 1 year old son with us and everyone had a blast. (Side note: the Monterey aquarium sucks, boring, save your money.... More

There are a lot of hotels that have a great location, or are finely appointed, or have comfy beds. And yes, the Spindrift has all of these. But what really stood out was the quality of their staff. Their team is friendly, outgoing, courteous, prompt, and helpful. Each one had a smile bigger than the one before and they were... More

The view from our room was amazing!! The room was large and comfortable, very clean. We stayed in an ocean view room and I definitely recommend spending the extra to have, you'll be glad you did. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They had good suggestions for great restaurants and places to make sure to see. I wouldn't want... More

That's how we were greeted each time we came back to the hotel after a day of adventures. And yes, it feels like a lovely home. We had street-side windows which gave us a fun view from the balcony on the second floor...or the bay window seats on the fourth floor. Staff couldn't be nicer..from Rich at the door to... More

This place is a gem. A great alternative to the four star resorts nearby at great savings. Its very personal personal and intimate. Everyone who works there treats you like you are important to them. Great attitude. The rooms have their own fireplaces that work which fits perfectly with the homey, romantic atmosphere. They actually serve you a nice continental... More

I'll confess that I wasn't sure what to make of the Spindrift Inn, when I first arrived. The place is in the middle of a really touristy area of Monterey, just down the street from the Monterey Bay aquarium and among a cluster of souvenir shops and odd restaurants and bars. I started to wonder if I'd made a mistake... More
