“Another wonderful birthday”
Reviewed October 15, 2010

This is our favorite place to stay. In the heart of Cannery Row you are within walking distance of everything. Staff is great. They left a special gift and card in our room for my birthday and even sprang for our dessert at the nearby restaurant. It was fabulous, again.

This hotel was awesome and I am sad that we only were able to stay 1 night as we were on a road trip from L.A to San Francisco. We arrived on the afternoon of the Monterey Jazz Festival and were treated to wine and cheese in the lobby great welcome! If you want tofind out what sleeping on a cloud is like try the four poster beds at this hotel- bliss!!!!!
We were treated to breakfast in our room the next morning and we ate this while looking out over the bay and watching the fishing boats heading off to work for the day.
Monterey is a lovely place and I would love to come back one day. Thankyou Spindrift for a lovely stay.

We just returned from staying at the Spindrift for 4 nights. We were very impressed with the service and room. The room is a victorian style setup, smaller than most hotels but IMO much better. At night, you can open the windows if you have bay side room and listen to the seals, seagulls, and waves. The people at the hotel were very polite and helped with anything we needed. Renae at the front desk was without a doubt one of the best assets the hotel has. She is very helpful. The bell hops and car parking attendees also were extremely polite and always helpful. The spindrift IMO is the best place to stay if you want to really experience cannery row since it is located right in the middle of the action. We travel a lot and have stayed at many hotels and the spindrift is well worth the price and stands out about others.

We loved this place. From the start the staff were hospitable and helpful. We had a room across from Cannery row but could still hear the sounds from the ocean. There was also a charming window seat and large window so we could look out onto the historic street. The room was large and featured a charming fire place. The bed was amazing, so comfortable. The breakfast isn't huge but cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt and bagels were a refreshing change from a lot of the greasy breakfasts offered in some places. If you are going to stay in Monterey, this place is ideal. An idyllic joy!

This place is great. We have been travelling around America for the last month and we've stayed in some nice place, but this place is the best.

The staff were just perfect too (especially Maureen and Will... though there was a guy who took Maureen's spot on the from desk who seemed a bit uninterested in smiling, saying hello, showing any expression, etc). So, aside from that one guy who may have a future as one of those mime-like guys who spraypaints themself and stands really still on the street, they were perfect.

The room was great; nice fireplace, big open windows and one if the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

Overall I was extremely impressed. I highly recommend it!

The staff was average in our check in. The room was charming and clean. As a southerner, coming to California , I was surprised at the warm weather at the time. We were not comfortable sleeping at all.

IOM-ManagerResponse, Manager at Spindrift Inn, responded to this review, October 21, 2010
Thank you very much for your comments; we appreciate all of our guests’ feedback, and consider it for great value and significance to our business.

We are disappointed to hear that this guest had, or when we hear that any guest has, a less than wonderful stay at our hotel. It is our mission to provide an environment committed to personal and attentive service, and we regret any instance where a guest does not experience this. We try very hard to instill this spirit of service in all of our staff, and we take every action to correct lapses when they are discovered.

As for the weather; Monterey is, for the most part, about 70 degrees all year round. Because of this, most buildings in the area do not have air-conditioning. During a few weeks in the fall, the temperature in the area does go up, and we try very hard to accommodate our guests when the weather becomes uncomfortable for them. The hotel does have fans which we are happy to provide to guests so that they might have an easily maneuvered, eco-friendly way of staying cool.

Should any guest have an issue that they would like to speak directly to a manager about, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
Thank you again; all comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.

We stayed here as our first stop on our honeymoon trip up the California coast. The service, rooms and atmosphere could not be more romantic. I definietely recommend the ocean view rooms. After dinner we came home, lit a fire and listened to the waves crash below our window....
