We've stayed on Cannery Row 5 times over the years and this was our first, but not last, time at the Spindrift Inn. In one word, incredible! If you're looking for something different than the corporate, experience (Monterey Plaza), I couldn't recommend this place any higher.

Stayed the weekend in Monterey at the Spindrift Inn after a week of stormy weather. The sun came out, although the ocean was extremely rough, which made for a very scenic views of the Monterey Bay from our 4th floor room. The wood burning fireplace was great! The sound, the smell (not strong, just perfect). Be sure to check out...

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here, as part of a two week vacation along the west coast. As soon as we arrived we were completely impressed both the wonderful porters taking our bags and parking the car, as well as the wonderful front staff.

We actually were travelling down the Californian coast d had a look on Tripadvisor to see where to stay - we booked this a day or two in advance for one night with a view of travelling on down the coast, but ended up staying 3 nights. The sea view rooms are fabulous, complete with four poster bed, window seating...

We had no reservations but were lucky to stumble onto this lovely property. It has a fabulous location and we loved our beautiful room with it's gorgeous ocean view and cozy wood-burning fireplace. The staff were friendly and accomodating, going out of their way to provide excellent service. We would most definitely stay here again!

Love everything about this hotel, except when the seagalls start 'squawking'at early morning hours. Both complimentary items (afternoon wine and cheese, and breakfast) were delightful. I try to stay there whenever they have favorable pricing.
