I just returned from a trip to Monterey with a stay at the Spindrift. I decided to spend a little extra so we could have a room on the beach. I loved this little inn and can't wait to go back.
We walked into the lobby around three pm and were impressed with the antique furniture. Very Nice and Inviting. We were able to check in immediately and go to our room. Valet service for our vehicle with 24 hour access to the vehicle.
The Inn offers complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon.
I can't say enough about the room. It was the 'Coast Room' with a full view of the ocean. We immediately opened the windows to listen to the waves as the tide was going out. There was a nice pair of binoculars on the window seat which we used to look for otters and actually found one. This room was beautifully appointed as well with antique furniture and a nice feather topper for the bed. We had a fire at night with the windows open. It really did not seem as though we were in a hotel or inn at all. Seemed like we were in our own little house on the beach.
When we awoke in the morning it was to the sound of the surf crashing on the sea wall. Looking out the windows it seemed like we were on a ship as there was water everywhere.
The room was very clean; furniture very comfortable; extra towels; bathrobes, and music for the CD player. The fire was easy to start with gas. Our room came with a complimentary 'continental' breakfast which came at the time we asked. The only thing lacking was an ice bucket but I believe room service would have delivered it if I had asked.
This is one of those hotels that we will definitely be returning to and will probably ask for the same room.
