I was in Monterey for a conference and mini vacation and had the best experience of my life staying at this Inn. It felt like I was at home! The room was so cozy and relaxed, I could have stayed in the room the whole trip and never left and had a wonderful stay. Every detail was thought of and we didn't have to ask for a thing because it was all provided and waiting for us already. The staff was friendly and helpful and everything was relaxed nothing was rushed. I would recommend this Inn for Romantic getaways, traveling couples, business travel. I love that they are a no pet and no smoking facility as well. If you need to escape for some rest and relaxation to Monterey this is the place to Stay.

Avoid the "Cannery Row" view rooms, our "view" was of the filthy roof across the street. While service was good, staff seemed nice -- quality was not at all -- the continental bfast was horrible (milk products warm, toasted bagels cold, fruit mushy). Real wood fireplaces, but poor ventilation -- opening the window wasn't an option since it was too loud on street side, and housekeeping was running a vacuum outside our door at 9am on a Sunday morning. All in all a big disappointment.

This guest has reached out to our management, and we have communicated directly with them regarding their concerns.

I would like to begin by saying that we appreciate all of our guests’ feedback, and consider all such input valuable. I would also like to note that it is always gratifying when the good qualities of our hotel are recognized, and I would like to thank this reviewer for ranking our location so highly.

That being said, we are all disappointed that this guest had a less than wonderful time while staying with us. It is our mission to provide an environment committed to personal, attentive service, and we regret any instance where a guest does not experience this.

Unfortunately, though we will bring this reviewer’s comments their attention, we do not have control over how often the other buildings on Cannery Row service their exterior. The building directly across the street from the Spindrift Inn is the old Bear Flag Republic building, with a genuinely historic roof. When the Spindrift Inn was first built, the owner fashioned the building across the street at a series of luxury apartments known as the Venetian, even going to far as to put in a Chinese Dragon roof, reminiscent of the construction of the buildings from his home in China. Though this historic characteristic is cherished and well taken care of by the owners of the building, the age of this roof may well have led this reviewer to see it as being less than attractive.

Regarding this person’s feedback on the breakfast and the vacuuming; both comments have been shared with our Housekeeping manager, and are being looked into. Though we make every effort to deliver a satisfactory breakfast to our guests, we understand that it will not be appreciated by all. Feedback such as this is very important to us, as we are continually evaluating our services for ways to make them better.

We would very much like a chance to welcome back any of our guests – both those who have had a great stay, and those we may have fallen short of impressing – so that we might demonstrate how dedicated we are to providing excellent service. Should any guest have an issue that they would like to speak directly with a manager about, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
Thank you again; all comments and feedback are truly appreciated.

Walking in to Spindrift Inn is like walking in to a warm hug. We felt welcome and well taken care of. Arrived late in the afternoon, just in time for the “Afternoon wine and cheese”. After a recommendation from the staff we finished our wine and cheese up on the roof which offered a spectacular view. The room was very charming and it was very nice waking up with the ocean just outside the window. Before continuing our trip towards LA we enjoyed a simple but nice breakfast in our room. Would highly recommend!

The perfect hotel for a weekend getaway from S.F. All our expectations were exceeded when we checked in after a day at Pebble Beach..there was a complimentary wine/cheese reception taking place. We were able to upgrade to an ocean view room for a minimal cost.
The room had everything one would need ..wood-burning fireplace, window seat and binoculars to watch the otters frolicking in the ocean surf, two big comfy chairs, table for complimentary breakfast, coffee maker, beautifully decorated and a huge comfortable bed to fall into at the end of the day...Everything was perfection...Thank you!

My husband and I were celebrating or 45th Wedding Anniversary. We didn't have much of a honeymoon so this more than made up for it. Our room was so beautiful - a fireplace, a feathered bed a view to die for. I love the ocean and it just made my stay complete. I can't say enough good things about the staff - they made us feel special.
In our 45 years, I can honestly say I didn't have to lift a finger on our vacation. A beautaiful breakfest brought to our room and lunch and dinner at one of the near by resturants which was wonderful. The shopping was great too.

My husband and I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary and decided to drive inland California from AZ to Monterey. Picked the Spindrift Inn because of the photos online and the super location right on the ocean and Cannery Row. It was perfect! Breakfast brought to our room and the most magnificent feather bed in the world!!! I have insomnia and the minute my back hit this bed, I was asleep! Really!!! The staff is courteous and friendly, it's within walking distance to the Monterey Bay Aquarium - there's just nothing negative about our stay - unless it would be - I felt like a Queen and would like to have spent many, many more days/nights there. I have already recommended it to a business associate.

Our family came to stay at the Spindrift Inn and had an amazing time. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, and were very helpful with suggestions for the area. Our room was well decorated and both it and the bed were very comfortable. The silver tray breakfast was a real treat, and the food was great. They had a choice for everyone in our family, and no one went hungry. And finally, its proximity to restaurants and the Aquarium made this the ideal place to stay. We have recommended this hotel to anyone who will listen.
