We stayed here for three nights in a corner ocean view room and really enjoyed our stay. We recommend booking the fourth floor corner ocean view room so that you do not have to listen to people above you walking on the hardwood and marble(bathroom) floors. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The breakfasts that they deliver each morning are the same each morning (hard boiled egg, toast, muffin, breakfast bread, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, juice and cereal). We used our wood burning fire place (with a gas insert) each night. There was a large supply of firewood on the exterior landing. Our room could have used some touchup paint on the fridge cupboard and on the bathroom door. Turn down service was early and we went out to dinner late so we only received the service once and it was just OK. The wine and cheese each night is early (4:30-6:30 PM) and is a nice touch. Monterey is more family oriented than Carmel so keep that in mind. We ate at two great places: The Sardine Factory and Bistro Moulin.

Room Tip: Ocean View Corner Rooms on the fourth floor are the best for a quiet beautiful view

I want to thank the staff at the Spindrift for a pleasurable stay.
From the wood burning suite fireplaces to the breakfast served
in your room, I enjoyed every moment.
The rooms are beautifully decorated with a southern feel
and you cannot have a better location.
Thank-you

Room Tip: The 2nd floor corner rooms have pretty wrap around porches and the 3rd floor corner rooms have wind...

We spent two nights at the Spindrift Inn in Monterey, California. The property was beautiful. We had a 3rd floor room overlooking the bay. We watched seals and sail boats from our windows. Enjoyed the wood burning fireplace, beautiful decor and complimentary wine and cheese each afternoon. We received personal attention from Duchess, the receptionist. Enjoyed breakfast delivered to our room each morning. We definitely recommend this hotel!!

Room Tip: Bay view is excellent!

We had a beautiful corner room, 2nd story with balcony that looks out over Cannery Row. The rooms have working fireplaces! Beautiful and comfortable bed. A garden on the roof of the building where you can see the bay as well as Cannery Row. Just a couple of blocks from the aquarium. What a great time! We would stay here again.

Only stayed one night and it was hard to leave! Our room had a wrap=around porch that gave views of the bay and of Cannery Row with comfy chairs to relax and enjoy life. Room was nice and the afternoon wine and cheese enabled pleasant conversations with other guests. Wouldn't stay anywhere else inMonterey!!

We just ended our two night stay at this wonderful establishment and regret that we have to move on. Apart from somebody knocking on our door at 2.30am everything was excellent about this place. The nicely decorated rooms are clean and well appointed. A lovely window seat, cosy fire place, big bathroom and very comfortable bed make for a great stay. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Free drinks late afternoon. The roof terrace is a good spot to see the sea otters frolicking in the bay. The location is right in the middle of Cannery
Row and couldn't be better. Two thumbs up!
