“Gorgeous boutique hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We felt absolutely spoilt. Had a two room suite with 2 bathrooms. Stunning fit out including fireplace and private balcony. Really great views over beach with waves crashing three meters from our window. A stones throw from all cannery row sights. We will be back.

It was warm and cozy. Once some of the construction on the seaward side is complete, it will be an awesome view all the way around. I enjoyed the service, the breakfast in bed and the colors of the room, French doors leading to the balconey. We were able to enjoy a wonderful anniversary. The only issue was the fire alarm that went off in the middle of the nite becuase someoine failed to follow instructions on lighting the fireplace. Other than that disruption it was awesome!

Room Tip: if you don't want your bed turned in the evening by maid service, put the Do not disturb sign on...

Large room with a wood-burning fireplace. Excellent daily wine and cheese reception. Over-the-top service. We had a room facing the street, left the windows open, and it was quiet. Just down the street from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. You can walk to the wharf, the Presideo Museum, and downtown. We'd planned to stay one night and loved the Spindrift so much we stayed two nights. Oh, and did I mention the rooftop garden? Charming.

We have stayed at the Spindrift Inn twice. I love this place it is so warm and friendly. The rooms are cozy with a wood burning fireplace. We had a corner room with windows looking out over the ocean. They have the wine and cheese in the late afternoon in the lobby, which is great. We went with another couple as a last minute getaway. We live in the area but love to go stay in the local inn and hotels just to not have to go home in the evening.

We had a single overnight stay in Monterey as we were driving the California 1 highway. What an amazing view in a really excellent room. We could not have enjoyed our stay anymore than we did.
We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the ocean - you must book the ocean view as it is the best. The excellent breakfast is served in the room and we were watching the seals play whilst we ate it. The room itself is excellent, real fireplace with wood logs provided, great bed, very clean and very well appointed. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the free cheese & wine evening was great.
Don't hesitate, book this hotel.

Room Tip: You must pay the extra for the ocean view - it is worth it.
