We loved the Spindrift inn for the great location, friendly service and romantic ambiance! We upgraded upon arrival to an oceanview room and were SO glad we did! The room can feel a little small to walk around because there are two wingback chairs and ottoman positioned around a real fireplace. I have never seen a hotel with a real fireplaces before so we were thrilled (we even made smores)! The also make it idiot proof as well so you don't need to know how to make a fire :). The room also had plenty of little details that we loved: 1) window seat to sit and watch the water/beach and was a great reading spot, 2) binoculars, 3) clean wine glasses and cheese knife, 4) sleep sounds CD's, 5) breakfast provided in your room every morning, 6) nice bathroom with Aveda products, 7) very comfy bed that you sink into, 8) plenty of bath towels, 9) bottled water in the fridge (a rarity we found in California), 10) cocktail hour in the lobby, 11) rooftop deck accessed through the 4th floor, and 12) cheapest valet we found on our trip ($21 per night). I guess the only downside would be there is no A/C. However we slept with the windows open and were cool enough and had the real ocean sounds to put us to sleep. There are no screens on the window but we didn't have any bugs (or seagulls) come visit us.
Overall we loved our stay at Spindrift and would recommend it to anyone!
