Right on Cannery Row and lovely rooms with your own personal fire place for the chilly foggy evenings. The room was very clean and nicely furnished with comfortable bed and bedding. Nice you have a safe in your room as well. The check-in staff were pleasant and very knowledgeable. The valet was over the top nice and he understands customer... More

We were attracted to the Cannery Row location, an easy two block walk to the Aquarium which was a principal reason for our visit. We had two bay front rooms to accommodate ourselves and our guests Expensive, but the splendid view and ambiance of the room was worth the cost. The rooms were spacious, beautifully furnished, and had a wood... More

We celebrated our ten year anniversary at the Spindrift Inn, and what a special night it was! We fell in love with the charm of Monterey and Cannery Row. I was skeptical, as it looked very industrial to me in the pictures. Once there, I saw how charming the area is in person. Being from Florida, I was also concerned... More

Decided to stay in the heart of Monterey/Cannery Row, chose the Spindrift Hotel and paid the additional cost for a waterside room. Well worth it and everything is within walking distance. When we walked in my fiancé stopped and went ‘wow’! It had been recently renovated and it was great. Even though we were right above the beach it was... More

I stayed and booked a cannery row view room. I wanted to see the street and people watch. I booked the many months in advance so I thought this would guarantee a good room. We were on the top floor and even though this room was on cannery row I was looking over an ugly car park across the next... More

We stayed here two nights on a West Coast trip. The location in Monterey is certainly hard to beat, the views out over the bay are wonderful, very close to the aquarium. Staff are generally friendly and fairly helpful - but whether the doormen are around when you arrive or not is a bit hit and miss. The rooms are... More

The location right on the water cannot be beat! We loved watching the sea life change as the tides came in and out and loved hearing the waves as we fell asleep each night.
