My sisters & I were planning a trip to see the Monterey Jazz festival.
We stayed at the beautiful shabby chic Spindrift Inn. From the moment we walked in we were warmly greeted by Paul, a manager there. He treated us like we were old friends, and recommended the restaurant next door, that was fabulous! I loved our room, we were on the 4th floor with an amazing water view. Our huge room had a real wood burning fireplace, soft comfortable beds,and pecky cypress ceilings.We left the windows open to enjoy the cool air, and listen to the sea birds, and seals. Continental breakfast was included in the price, and delivered each morning to our room.
The staff could not be more accommodating from the free valet parking, to finding us "honey" for our coffee. If I could afford it, I would retire & live in that fabulous room!

Room Tip: Absolutely get a room with a water view!

Arrived without Hotel reservations in Monterey. Saw that Spindrift Inn gets good reviews so decided to walk in and ask for a room. Luckily the had one.
Every member of the staff was so nice. They all have genuine intrest in your well being at their property. Also the complimentary wine and cheese served from 4.30 to 6 pm in the lobby was a cool perk. Met some nice people there.
The rooms are not really my style. It's more like visiting your grandmother. But whatever something different. Good change of pace from all the stays at W's and Gansevoort's.

We stayed 2 nights at the Spindrift and loved it. Enjoyed the four poster and having breakfast delivered exactly as you asked and when you asked for it. Sitting in front of the fire eating our breakfast and looking out over the ocean. Wow, cant be beat.

Sleep quality was great as well, cracked the windows and heard the waves all night, but it was very quiet otherwise, so a perfect sleep.

loved it.

Room Tip: go for the ocean view!!!!

This charming hotel provided beautiful ocean views, in room log fires, coffee maker, fresh in room breakfast and attentive staff, perfect stay thank you. The easy access to Cannery row and valet parking (charge) was ideal.

If you want a great getaway from the Vegas heat, come here. Allegiant flys direct. The Spindrift is on the Row and on Canny Row's only beach. Bed & breakfast style. Room 208 is the best. Walk out onto the Row for handy shopping and hopping. The Aquarium at one end and diving at the other. Great walking path along the old railroad.

We had one night in Monterey on our road trip honeymoon and we were extremely impressed with The Spindrift Inn. The staff were so helpful and polite and our room was amazing. We had a fantastic view over the bay and a lovely fireplace which we made the most of as it was a stormy cold night when we were there. Due to the storm we were unable to do our whale watching trip the following morning but our fantastic night at the Spindrift definitely made up for it. The staff helped us the following morning by booking us tickets to the aquarium instead and dealing with our luggage for us after check out so we could get there early and the Mustang was all packed and ready to go when we returned.

The inn is charming and romantic with fireplace and cozy bed. Everything was clean and the continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were a nice touch. We really enjoyed the rooftop garden with spectacular views. This is a romantic hotel with good service and is a good value overall. The location is very convenient right at cannery row, not far from the aquarium and plenty of restaurants. We also rented bikes and rode the path to 17mile drive. This is a beautiful track along the coast with breathtaking views. You can make stops for photos and its a great way to take in the historic "drive".
