Great location on cannery row over looking Monterey bay. Amazing rooms with fire places & a complimentary wine / cheese evening get together. Handy for the amazing aquarium . Just a lift , but have stairs at each end for quick access... Even a roof terrace to sit upon.

We either stay at the Spindrift or at the nearby Intercontinental when we come to Monterrey; but the rooms here are HUGE and many of them overlook the ocean. Definitely get one of the rooms that are ocean-view as this is no joke -- you will likely see the famous sea otters, lots of gulls, brown pelicans, cormorants and also... More

We headed to Monterey and one of our Boutique Hotel favorites for a quick R&R and as always the experience was great. The rain let up long enough for us to walk to the aquarium and then dinner. Once back in our room the storm settled in and so did we. Fire in the wood burning fireplace, and a glass... More

My wife and I stayed here one night in December. We walked in, saw the fireplace, the decor, and, most importantly, the ocean view, which I almost cried over. It was fantastic. In addition, the wine-and-cheese reception was great (they don't give you a hard time about taking the wine and cheese up to your room, which is what we... More

We truly loved our stay at the Spindrift Inn during our time in Monterey. The location of the hotel on Cannery Row, makes everything in downtown Monterey walkable. There are many great restaurants, wine tasting rooms and of course the world-renowned Monterey Aquarium only a short walk. The Inn is beautifully appointed, with rooms facing the bay and Cannery Row.... More

This is a unique one of a kind hotel tucked away on Cannery Row. The rooms are semi Victorian style, wood floors and has the look and feel of Grandma's house. This hotel doesn't have a lot of extras like the Monterey Plaza but, the differences helps it stand apart from other places in Monterey. The rooms facing street side... More

This small quaint hotel was perfect for our recent stay in Monterey. We splurged a little on our trip and upgraded to the king ocean view room and we are certainly very glad we did. The views were spectacular. We also had a wood burning fire place in our room that we took full advantage of each night. As this... More

We decided to splurge and stay here. Everything was great. Comfortable room, unique, great location. We ended up with a bathroom shower that was ADA, so a little awkward and reduced some of the romantic ambiance but if I needed a fold down bench with a shower hose, it would have been perfect. All about your need and perspective. Highly... More

We went to California for our honeymoon. Our first night we spent at the Spindrift. This hotel is located on Canary Row in Monterrey CA. It is directly on the water overlooking the bay. We found our stay as outstanding. The staff was wonderful and courteous. The price was well in line with several others in the same locations and... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the spindrift inn! The fantastic staff was so friendly, warm , knowledgeable (they gave us great tips on restaurants and sightseeing and made reservations for us)--everything we would want in hotel staff! The valet service was quick and friendly and they even got ice for our cooler upon request. The oceanview room was beautiful;... More
