Somehow, during my couple of previous trips to Monterey, I'd never ventured into the two-block stretch of Cannery Row where the Spindrift is located. I booked the hotel because of its great reviews on TripAdvisor, and the fact that we were able to get a really good midweek rate. I got the less expensive "Cannery Row view," and I have to say that if I ever stay here again, I will NOT cheap out. Get the ocean view!! Cannery Row is noisy, with trucks lumbering by at all hours. Luckily, the windows must be double paned because it was surprisingly quiet in the room once we closed the doors to our little balcony. Seriously, pay the extra money for the ocean view rooms. And be aware that the inn is on a boardwalk-like stretch of street with loads of fudge and T-shirt shops. Pluses: the room service continental breakfast, included; sauna & fireplace in the room, though we didn't use either (would be nice for a winter getaway); soft, comfy bed; easy walking distance to the aquarium, so if that's on your list, the Spindrift is definitely worth considering. Also, if you're interested in a spa, the Body Suite is only a couple blocks away and much more affordable than the fancy hotel spas.
