My husband and I stayed here for one night on a coastal trip and I wish we had stayed longer. Overlook the $28/day parking fee and enjoy the convenience of valet parking. The fire place in the room was excellent and being on the top floor gave us vaulted ceilings. The in room coffee station and the evening wine and...

The inn has amazing views form Ocean View Rooms! Best in California. We are coming every year! Service is great, and it's right next to Cannery Row and the Monterey Aquarium. Our favorite Place to stay in Monterey!

Spindrift Inn is a great hotel..........but, we just can't put our finger on it, perhaps just not great for us. We had a lovely room, with an un-interupted view of the ocean. We watched, seals, otters and loads of birds during our stay. To sleep at night with the window open and the waves crashing was sublime. To be so...

Hello PaulWhitehead409, We are very appreciative of your review and would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us. While it was wonderful to read that you found your guest room to be lovely with never-ending views of the bay and enjoyed our Cannery Row location, we were disappointed that your stay failed to fully meet your expectations....

A wonderful boutique, TREMENDOUS staff, near the must visit Aquarium and great restaurants--plus a wood burning fireplace, which is perfect when you pause for a stay in the well appointed rooms. Breakfast is delivered to your room each morning--a very nice touch. I hesitate to tell others where to stay--but I highly recommend the Spindrift.

From our first step in the front door to the last step out, everyone went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The room was amazing - our window was right over the beach, with a wood/gas fireplace, and a perfectly comfortable bad. We were delighted with the evening wine and breakfast delivered to the room each morning....

We've vacationed in the Monterey area for thirty years and have stayed at some very expensive, very run-down hotels. The moment we walked through the doors at the Spindrift we knew we'd found something different! It was beautiful in the lobby with a roaring fire (the Christmas decor didn't hurt either) The clerk was super helpful and announced that wine...

This was our second time saying at the Spindrift Hotel. Very romantic. The ocean views are absolutely stunning. And the breakfast served to your room is such a nice touch. The service the second time here was not as great as the first time but it was satisfactory.

As with previous stays, we were once again delighted with every aspect of our stay at the Spindrift over the Thanksgiving week-end. The room was clean, comfortable and especially cozy with the wood-burning fireplace. I would unconditionally recommend this hotel. The location could not be better, and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly.
