I had been planning a trip along the California coast for my husband, daughter and I. We drove up from San Diego to our first stop in Monterrey. The Spindrift was not our hotel of choice, but upon finding out I messed up the dates of our reservation for the other hotel they referred us to the Spindrift. We had... More

I ALWAYS stay at Marriotts, but took a chance on this hotel. It's good to take chances sometimes. From the warm and welcoming check in, to the overall hospitality of the housekeeping staff, an incredible experience. The room was one of the most quaint and unique rooms I've stayed in. In the heart of Cannery Row, you can beat this... More

For our anniversary this year we spent some time in Monterey. Since it was a special occasion, we decided to stay at an inn that was a bit more expensive, but highly recommended(by Trip Advisor visitors). Our time at Spindrift was fantastic! We had a room on the fourth floor overlooking the bay. A great decision (by my wife). The... More

We had a very bad experience at the Spindrift Inn. When I booked, I had asked about noise from Cannery Row, and I was told 1) that there was an ordinance banning noise after 10 pm, and 2) that the rooms were soundproof. We arrived on a Friday night for what was to have been a 3-night stay. The staff... More

Spent two nights at. Spindrift and was overwhelmed by the hospitality. Starting with the wine and cheese when we arrived through breakfast in bed, the staff could not do enough for us. We recommend staying two nights to benefit from the full ambiance of the inn and Cannery Row. Also, it is well worth the upcharge for a room overlooking... More

My wife and I stayed at the Spindrift In for one evening this past week on our way to Washington. The hotel is located on Cannery Row and the shoreline of Monterey Bay. Upon check-in, you are greeted by a valet, in our case Michael. Very nice and helpful young man. He brought our bags to the room, explained all... More

This place is really nice. Right on cannery row so good for bars and restaurants. Don't pay for valet parking because you can park on street for free nearby. We had a street view, which was good but the sea view was better. Only criticism is that the roof terrace is bare and should be developed as a bar. Stay... More

Took our 14 year Granddaughter who says we have continued our "Wow" factor as grandparents. Stayed two nights and enjoyed the window seat to view the water as well as listening to the waves at night. The feather bed was cozy. Great service and hospitality by Renee and Cory who work the front desk. It was an amazing, restful weekend!... More

Stayed here about 10 years back and loved it then, and it is still a wonderful place to stay and come home rested and relaxed. This place is so comfy it is just like sleeping at home...awesome bed and pillows. Well designed rooms and clean. We stayed on the second floor balcony room, streetside. Open the doors and you hear... More

Everything about the hotel was nice, until you wanted to sleep. Then the loud hard rock music started, at 9pm, and lasted until midnight. It was VERY loud in the room, with the windows closed and the drapes drawn. So loud, sleep was out of the question. I put on a CD of soft music to cover up the noise,... More
