The location was perfect. Right in the middle of everything with 24 hour ocean front views. We staying in room 105 right next to the check in. It was surprisingly very quiet. The service was perfect. All of the staff went out of their way to make you feel at home. Bathroom was clean and nice. Bed was extremely comfortable....

After a long drive, was a great place to unwind and listen to the sea and sit by the fire in our room. It was great. Only stayed one night. Wished we could have stayed longer. Nice central location. Great staff.

Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Included wine & cheese appetizers. Ocean view room was very confortable with a wood-burning fireplace and comfortable chairs to sit in front of the fire and tv.

Amazing oceanfront views that are literally right on the water! Envision wood burning fireplaces, canopy beds, morning room service continental breakfast, daily wine and cheese happy hour, with a friendly, attentive, and professional staff, what more could you want? And did I mention it's right in the middle of Cannery Row? We will definitely be back :-)

On previous visits to Monterey, the BF and I have always stayed at a hotel we like a lot (the Monterey Bay Inn, which is a sister hotel to the Spindrift.) However, we were taking his grandma on vacation and needed a handicap accessible room with an ocean front view. The Spindrift had what we were looking for. Due to...

We originally stayed at the Spindrift Inn over 20 years ago for our Honeymoon... since that time we have returned over and over again to the Spindrift Inn.

My wife and I had a few days to ourselves so we decided to go to Monterey. I was concerned about booking a hotel on Cannery Row but my concerns were misplaced. The hotel itself is gorgeous. The staff could not have been more helpful. An ocean view, a warm fireplace, breakfast in bed...who could ask for more.

We had stayed at a bay front room in Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa about five years ago, and we decided to compare it with a bay front room at the Spindrift Inn to decide which is the more romantic. We choose Spindrift Inn. Spindrift Inn is closer to the shops, restaurants, and the Aquarium. Check-in and check-out were more...

Friendly staff, perfect location on the water along Cannery Row, and a truly unique property with plenty of character while simultaneously being very modern and comfortable. Our "go-to" whenever we go back to Monterey.
