5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We arrived fairly late in the evening at the Spindrift having completed a long car ride from Death Valley. Our receptionist was warm and welcoming and we opted for Valet Parking, it really is worth it to ensure peace of mind and let someone else take over the responsibility. They looked after the car for us, stored our luggage and... More

The Spindrift is located right in the middle of Cannery Row but inside seems a world away. You can shop, go to nice restaurants enjoy the attractions along the Row, but inside the Inn, a quiet, well appointed, romantic suite awaits! Our room had a fireplace, a nice sitting area that looked over the beach and a wonderfully comfy bed.... More

The Spindrift Inn is right on Cannery Row so it's a perfect location. The Inn feels like a European hotel with old world charm in the decor and furnishings. Our room had a real wood fireplace- we didn't use it, we really don't like smoke in the room. The bathroom had a sauna that my husband really enjoyed. There's wine... More

Thank you for your descriptive review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the European-style charm of the Spindrift Inn, but are sincerely sorry to hear that you encountered several noise issues while staying in our Cannery Row View Room. Cannery Row is undoubtedly a very vibrant community with local shops and restaurants in such close proximity and we are... More

we stayed at the spindrift inn on our trip down highway. 1. It's right on the bay on the main cannery row street. Our room overlooked the street which was a bit noisy at night but that was not a major problem. On arrival we opted for the valet parking at 25 usd a night, we were getting a bit... More

My husband and I stayed one night in a corner room on the second floor. Great room! 2 french doors leading out to a wrap around balcony. The noise on cannery row was too loud to have open for long tho.The bedding was top of the line, amazing! The biggest complaint we had was the wood burning fireplaces, every room... More

The hotel was beautiful. Rooms very spacious. The staff was great. Mike could not do enough. Works non-stop. Was always there to help out The advice to go to The Fish Hopper for dinner was poor. The meal was adequate at best.

We've stayed nearby, but wanted to check these folks out. Small, not flashy, but the room was clean, great view, people nice, elevator worked (not to be taken for granted!), nice wine and cheese time at end of day, smack on the waterfront, on Cannery Row. We'll be back; our daughter (in school down the street) wanted to stay the... More

This is a lovely hotel with a couple of problems. The good news is the location. The bad new is the location. We were there this week, shoulder season and Cannery Row was uncrowded. But at night the constant drone of motorcycles, and loud drunks made sleep almost impossible. Also, there is a wood burning fireplace in the lobby and... More

We are very appreciative of your review and are truly disappointed that we fell short of providing you with a more restful stay. Cannery Row is certainly a very vibrant community and we are sincerely sorry that the information shared did not accurately describe the environment. Guest comfort is certainly a top priority of ours and we are very sorry... More
