“Location! Location! Location!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Since Tripadvisor reviewers had rated the Spindrift Inn as most romantic, Tom suggested we check to see if they had an opening when we were in Monterey, which, surprisingly, they did! The inn's location smack-dab in the center of Cannery Row was awesome. The staff was friendly and helpful and obviously held themselves to a high standard of customer service. Breakfast is delvered to your room each morning and there is a wine reception each afternoon. We opted for a view of Cannery Row since its charm was what brought us to Monterey. We slept like babies and I told Tom I thought I could sleep in that bed 24-7! We had a little issue with slow-draing water in the tub, but everything else was perfect. Whether it's the promise of romance or the bustle of the area that entices you, Spindrift Inn is the perfect place to stay during your visit to Monterey.

We came to Monterey to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary and we stayed for 2 nights in Marriott, but than decided to extend our trip. We were walking by this hotel and decided to check in. They gave us AAA discount. Room is so nice, clean, nice bath robes, safe and has wood burning fireplace and bay windows that can be open - and so we did to enjoy the sound of the waves. Bed is so nice and soft. They bring you complimentary continental breakfast to your room. Nothing to brag about, but coffee was good. Would love to come back.

Could not have had friendlier staff, caring personalised service, we could not have been ma de to feel more welcome.
Complimentary breakfast to your room and a complimentary wine and cheese late afternoon snack were unexpected and very welcome benefits from staying at this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room and it was lovely

The room was beautiful and comfortable. Spent extra to have a waterfront room and it was worth it. We were able to walk everywhere, but found that we loved to sit (and nap) on the window seats with the cool breeze and salty smell....heaven.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and select a room on the waterfront. The corner units are the best.

The hotel is more or less located at the waterfront.Our rooms had a view on the bay.The rooms are decorated in the typical oldfashioned style with a lot of wood,cracking floors,a fireplace in the room etc.All in all it creates a very comfortable atmosphere.The hotel is pretty small and it does not have a restaurant.The very friendely taff recommended The Sardine Factory.And also this restaurant was a surprise.Monterey as a town was a disappointment,but the hotel was great fun.

Been aware of the Spindrift for years...never stayed there until now. What a mistake! This hotel is comfortable and friendly, and has all the amenities needed for a getaway weekend. We loved our room, listening to the seagulls all night and the "white noise" of the ocean. The Spindrift seems like a hidden gem on the coast. We'll definitely go there again soon!

Room Tip: Ground floor ocean view - can't beat it!
