"Charming"
Outstanding hotel. We arrived and my wife went crazy when she checked the bathroom and there was a sauna in our room which was unexpected. We also had a fire place on our room and our bed was one of the most comfortable we heave ever slept in. Our room had a balcony that over looked cannery row which was great also. We could sit on the balcony and watch everyone coming and going. At night it was quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of local shopping in walking distance and there was no shortage of restaurants. We later read that this hotel was named one of the top ten most romantic hotels in the country and we would agree. We would definitely return.

"Nice hotel close to the beach."
We had a great time celebrating a birthday--the hotel gave us a complimentary bottle of sparkling cider since we don't drink alcohol. I cider was in a nice bucket of ice with two champagne glasses--a nice touch.

"Beautiful and unique hotel"
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and it is one of the best hotels we have ever booked. The staff members were attentive and polite, especially the bell hop who was a wealth of information. When they learned we were newlyweds, they left a congratulatory note and chocolates on our bed - a very sweet touch. The room itself was charming and romantic with a wonderful view. The hotel is in the heart of Cannery Row, and it's very convenient and easy to walk to the aquarium, the beach, shops and restaurants. We will absolutely stay here again the next time we visit Monterey!

"Beautiful Romantic Hotel"
We loved the beautiful ocean view from our room. The featherbed was so comfy and a wonderful fireplace at night. It was the most relaxing stay we have experienced in a long time. There was also wine and cheese served at 4:00 every day down in the beautiful lobby. The entire staff was so helpful and wonderful. We will definitely be back!

"Spindrift Inn was Great!"
Stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Excellent hotel, lots of charm, walking distance to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and right by all the shops and lots of places to eat nearby. Had an ocean view room and got to watch otters and seals right outside the room window and saw a pod of dolphins. And the room was beautiful, could actually open the windows and loved the fireplace and wood floors. Bed was really comfortable, complimentary breakfast brought to your room was wonderful and room was super clean. Staff was very friendly.

"Beautiful!"
My husband and I spent a night in Monterey in February, to go to the aquarium. This hotel was on Cannery Row and was an easy walk to the aquarium and the shops. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in to the corner room on the second floor!! It was beautiful. From the down bed to the chairs in front of the fireplace to the corner balcony overlooking Cannery Row...it was comfort. Loved the gorgeouscdecor and added extras that made the room special...down comforter and pillows on the bed, comfortably chairs to sit and relax in, tall coffee mugs, wine glasses, full length mirrored doors on the wardrobe closet And my favorite was the CDs for use during your stay. The Spindrift knows how to add little extras for a special touch. There was a wine reception, late in the afternoon, downstairs in the gorgeous lounge area. And my absolute favorite thing was the continental breakfast served in the your room-breakfast in bed! Wonderful! The people were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back! And for more nights next time.

"Great location and wonderful staff."
I stayed at this lovely hotel recently on the recommendation of other travelers. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The Wine Reception was a great idea but a bit stuffy. The lobby needs some sort of music or other ambiance to make it a bit more comfortable and less conversation averse. The wood burning fireplace, while not necessary during my stay would be fantastic if it was colder. The Cannery Row View rooms are AMAZING! Sitting on the patio with your own private perch to people watch or enjoy a beverage or food is a huge bonus. One drawback was the bed. It was an overfilled liner which is normally nice but in this case produced a large bubble bed that was hard to provide a good snuggle. Breakfast choices were minimal but the quality was superb. Overall, this is a fantastic hotel to relax in and enjoy all that is Monterey.

"Favorite hotel I've ever stayed in!"
My favorite hotel I've ever stayed in. The decor and room is gorgeous and very romantic. Really comfy feather bed, hardwood floors, and a fireplace in the room. What more could I want!? You get to select what you want for breakfast which they deliver on a silver platter to your room at the time you choose. The location is perfect right on the main street in Monterey which is great for walking around and not having to worry about parking or driving back to your hotel. We had a street view which is just as great as being on the ocean side view. The hotel is beautiful and has lots of character, staff are all very friendly and helpful, and overall amazing service. I think its a great hotel for a romantic getaway, and I personally favor smaller boutique hotels over big chain hotels. We will definitely be back.

Get an ocean-view room on a higher floor. You won't regret it!! Very cozy and romantic. The rooms are GORGEOUS!! The view (especially on a cloudy day) is amazing (I caught sight of a couple of sea otters frolicking in the ocean right in front of my room). Excellent access to the beach as well as the restaurants on the boardwalk. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. Well worth the $$.

We love the Spindrift. The people are friendly and helpful--especially Juliette and Renee--everyone actually (valets, desk clerks, maids). The location is unbeatable--on the bay and near the aquarium. The rooms are lovely--French country with fireplaces and windowseats. The breakfast and afternoon tea--a treat. We've enjoyed it for decades (yes, decades) and hope for decades more.

Luxurious room but small. Location is perfect and wine and cheese served each evening in the lobby added a great touch. Rooftop deck with great views of bay and stars. I did miss hot tub which would be perfect on the rooftop. The easy walk to the beach or along the trail more than made up for it.

We splurged and reserved an Oceanside room and it was well worth it. When we first arrived there was a mixup as to our reservation, but fortunately I had kept my confirmation from hotels.com and we were give a lovely corner room on the second floor ocean side with fireplace. The rooms or tastefully decorated and the ocean views are spectacular. We really enjoyed the in-room continental breakfast. Also a treat is the evening wine and cheeses/fruit plater from 4-6. Definitely will stay here again. We enjoyed everything about our stay. Also really enjoyed how close it is to lots of places to shop and eat.

We decided last minute to drive to Monterey, stay overnite to go snorkeling the following morning. I had been to the Spindrift some years back as a guest of a friend. I was delighted to be able to get a room on such short notice! Our room was lovely and the quality of the hotel has been painstakingly maintained. It's such a beautiful area and being right on Cannery Row is a treat! I highly recommend making a visit to the Spindrift. We look forward to returning very soon!

I was looking for a nice, quiet hotel in the middle of Cannery Row overlooking the ocean and I found the perfect place! The wine and cheese in the afternoon was delightful. Our room was beautifully appointed and oh so comfortable. We fell asleep listening to the waves. It was sublime. The breakfast delivered to our room each morning on a silver tray was yummy.

"Spindrift Inn, the perfect romantic getaway."
The Monterey coast is a wonderful destination for a romantic getaway and the Spindrift Inn is the perfect place to stay. Located in the center of Cannery Row its walking distance to everywhere. The rooms are quaint, spacious, and clean; the feather bed was sleep all day comfortable; the gas assisted wood fire was so easy to use and was definitely used to set the mood for a cozy evening and to take the chill of the early mornings. They have complementary wine and cheese in the afternoons and we took ours to the roof top balcony and watches the waves, not to mention 2 humpbacked whales.

"Not Handicap Friendly"
when checking in on the form, they ask if you need help to leave your room in case of emergency. The fire alarm went off and my wheelchair bound husband was trapped. No one came to his aid. Thankfully I made it back to the room to help him, as there was no follow through from the hotel staff. There was the smell of smoke. Evidently someone must have lit their wood burning fireplace and forgot to open the flue. Moral: if handicapped, do not stay here!
