This was my third stay at Spindrift. Pluses: - Arguably the best location in Monterey unless you're diving. It's located on a small beach and on Cannery Row, just ~2 blocks from the aquarium. The rooms facing the water have an unobstructed view of Monterey Bay. You can open the windows and hear and smell the ocean, and use the...

Lovely small hotel with great service. Our room had a balcony overlooking Cannery Row so you could see and hear the hustle and bustle below when sitting in the afternoon sun, but didn't hear the noise at night with the doors closed. Breakfast was nice - a continental selection delivered to your room. The wine and cheese offered in reception...

We loved our stay at the Sprindrift Inn and would love to stay again if we're lucky enough to get back to wonderful Monterey. The room and bathroom were both large and the bedroom had a working wood burning fire, although it wasn't cold enough for us to make use of it. Breakfast delivered on a silver tray to your...

Beautiful hotel, beautiful room, right on the ocean - the view was amazing. The staff was excellent, they knew who we were, which room and which car every time. Even with different staff on duty! Excellent service. We are excited to stay there again.

What a great stay at the Spindrift Inn. Great room that had a working fireplace. Breakfast delivered to the room in the morning. Treated like royalty. The room was great and the staff was over the top helpful. The location, on Cannery Row, made it easy access to some great restaurants and the Aquarium.

The Spindrift Inn is in Monterey CA., located on Cannery Row with a most spectacular View of Monterey Bay. The very best in that location! The room was gorgeous and very large. It included a love seat and two chairs in front of a lovely fireplace w/ a tv over it. There were 2 super comfortable queen beds in our...

Booked this hotel because of all the good reviews. Rooms nice enough but a bit tired. Moth eaten curtains, windows you can't see through, plumbing that backs someone else's bath water into your bath and very poor internet connection. Rooms permanently smell of woodsmoke. View over the sea is excellent, saw sea otters, dolphins, sea lions and seals and loads...

I can't say enough great things about this place. From the moment we arrived til the moment we left we were in awe. The front desk and all other staff are above and beyond accommodating. We were lucky enough to stay in a corner ocean view room where the views were stunning and the decor in the room was too....

We had an excellent stay! The hotel is perfectly placed on Cannery Row with Ocean Views optional. Parking was valet and cost $28 a night which seemed to be about the going rate and what you'd expect when staying on Cannery Row. From 4:30pm-6:00pm every day they had free cheese and wine available. There's a seating area on the roof...

It was also wonderful to find out that you had the opportunity to not only enjoy our hosted afternoon wine & cheese reception but also...
