The room was nice and old-fashioned in a good way. Wood floors, fireplace, windows that actually open etc..lots of light..Outstanding free continental breakfast. Cons - 1. Parking at the hotel is pricey 2, There needs to be a Direct TV guide that shows what channels are actually available at the hotel. Most impressive: The staff Bottom Line: I would stay... More

The Spindrift Inn is an upperclass accommodation. The rooms are old English! You get breakfast on the room! The people and mist of the staff are relaxed! The hotel is Direct at the sea! If I would marry my wife a second time, the Spindrift is one of my first choice! Ok! Why I give only 4 points? The reason... More

We had a room that looked out onto the street on Cannery Row. We were surprised at how quiet it was, they did a very good job of insulating the windows and room from the noise outside. The tub was perfect, the fireplace was amazing, and oh the feather bed! So cozy. The chairs in front of the fireplace made... More

My husband and I stayed at the Spindrift Inn a few weeks back. It was absolutely amazing! When we first walked in we were greeted and personally welcomed with complimentary wine and cheese. The room was absolutely beautiful. We spent a little extra money to get the ocean view, and it was worth every penny! The fireplace was the only... More

The Spindrift Inn was a perfect place to relax and enjoy just being at the hotel. We were greeted when we first came in so pleasantly. We stayed with our family of four in a room with two queen beds. At first we were considered about not having air conditioning, but since we were right on the beach, when you... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on our California Coast trip. Best part was the location near the aquarium and on Cannery Row. The room was large and it had some nice features, but it really looked worn. The carpet in the hall outside our room was lumpy and looked ragged. The curtains in our room were not attached properly and... More

We booked a waterfront room for two weekdays in June at the last minute, and couldn't have been more pleased. All of the staff was friendly and willing to answer any questions, always smiling. The hotel is right in Cannery Row, walked everywhere. We saw sea otters, sea lions, and a whale right from our room! The wood burning fireplace... More

Rather tired establishment in the heart of Steinbeck's tacky Cannery Row with some odd practices - basic breakfast only served in rooms and free wine and cheese in lobby at 4.30pm for guests to "mingle and become acquainted with one another". Needs an overhaul and injection of modernity to bring it up to international standards.

This hotel seems like it has soo much potential when you see the photos but unfortunately the lack of facilities and staff really let this hotel down.
