We had a wonderful two-night stay at Spindrift Inn in early August, and it couldn't have been nicer.
Don't be intimidated when you pull up with all the traffic - nice valet service. Check-in also took a bit long, but the wine and appetizers they serve in the afternoon certainly make the wait pleasant.
When we checked into our room, it was odd because the bed and furniture were covered with sheets. We thought they might be like this because of the fireplace and to keep the smokey smell off them. We cheerfully pulled them off, finished setting up the room and relaxed. After a romantic evening in front of the fireplace, we were well rested the next day for our excursion down 17-mile drive and exploring Carmel and Point Lobos State Reserve.
Well, when we returned there was a hand-written apology note for the state of the room the night before and free bottle of wine! That the room wasn't perfect didn't bother us in the least, but the acknowledgement (and free wine) really impressed.
Of course, great location, lots of nice dinner locations nearby, and great rooftop seating area as well.
Not sure when we'll return, but lots of great memories of the Spindrift Inn!
