"Renewing our soul ocean side"
This was our 3rd stay at Spindrift and we can't wait to go back again. The staff is wonderful, enjoyed the free breakfast and wine and cheese get-together every afternoon where we made some new friends. Our ocean front room is the very best where you can open the windows and hear the ocean sing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the perfect boutique hotel"
We spent our honeymoon here 26 years ago, and we have come back for several other anniversaries since then. This past week we enjoyed our 26th at the Spindrift. The hotel never changes, and that's a great thing because it is a cozy, romantic, elegant place to stay. We love the ocean view rooms, the fireplace and the plush bedding. The continental breakfast […] has many tasty choices - not your average fare. We will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the Spin Drift and we would recommend the in too our friends. The staff are friendly, helpful & helped to make our stay comfortable. The location is the best for amenities & the ocean is just outside the inn. Great trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is wonderful! Perfect location, wood floors, comfy bed, private sauna in bathroom, nice staff, and clean. This Spindrift Inn is a fantastic hotel, will definitely come back next time we are in California.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel - we'll stay there again"
We spent a lovely day in Monterey and at the Spindrift. The hotel is a gem, the staff as friendly and service oriented as one could wish for, and the location can't be beat. I'm in the hotel business and tend to be pretty critical of places I stay, and this was one of the nicest stays my wife and I have had in some time. I highly recommend the Spindrift […] to anyone staying in Monterey. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Only reason the neighborhood got a 3 was because there is an abandoned lot next to the hotel with a couple passed out homeless guys and other homeless folks mingling around throughout the afternoon and evening. Felt a bit unsafe, we even had to call cause one was abusing a dog. Otherwise fantastic hotel!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very, very nice room, which included an in-room sauna and fireplace. Great proximity to Pebble, Carmel and Big Sur. RBGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were on a PCH road trip and in town (with no prior reservations). I usually stay at Marriott property's and we were just going to stay at the Marriott in town. However a deal popped up on Expedia for Spindrift; it had great reviews and a great last minute price deal ($169) so we went with it. I travel a lot for business and am a bit of a hotel snob, […] so I was nervous to stay in a property that I was not familiar with. WOW, I was very pleasantly surprised. It was right on the beach, had great views of the bay and Cannery row and it was so charming. We had a second floor corner room. It wasn't really a suite, b/c it was just one room, but it was spacious and quaint all at the same time. Big fluffy comfy bed with canopy, vaulted ceilings, fireplace with 2 large comfy chairs, multiple window seats, fridge and bar area. And Aveda toiletries in the bathroom. The way they had the room laid out with the different areas (and especially the area with the fireplace, flat screen TV, chairs) it felt like a suite. I'm not into romantic "foofy" / flowery type hotels; but this property was great and it all worked. I would classify it as a luxury boutique hotel. The staff was fantastic and very accommodating. We liked it so much that we almost booked a second night, but we needed to move on in order to keep with the timeline of our PCH road trip. Another plus: complementary breakfast delivered to your room in the morning. I highly recommend this property! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful for a first timer."
The room was warm and cozy. It was right on Cannery Row which has it's own list of merits and charms. Lots to do and the atmosphere is symbolic of the local charm. If you can stay here. It's head and shoulders above other resort hotels I've stayed at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
4TH TIME THERE AND 4TH TIME THE STAFF AND HOTEL DID NOT LET ME DOWN. ITS A PERFECT PLACE FOR A WEEKEND GET AWAY.DROP YOUR CAR OFF AND WALK EVERYWHERE AS THE LOCATION TO SOME VERY GOOD EATERIES ARE CLOSE BY.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
EXCELLENT!!! A must stay for couples looking for a romantic getawayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a place!"
When you come in to a hotel and the front desk personnel say "Welcome Home!" you feel it is! Even though The Spindrift is rated high for romance, even a person alone feels warmly comfortable. Everyone on the staff was very helpful, friendly, smiling. The bed was deliciously comfortable. The fire was welcome at night. Loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing location. Loved the fireplace in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Met wonderful people"
The best part of our stay was being in a very central location. Everything was right there. Also the hotel hosts a wine get together every late afternoon. We met some wonderful people in a beautiful setting. The complementary breakfast was wonderful- delivered to our room. Valet parking was very easy and convenient. Enjoyed our stay - wish we had stayed […] longer! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on Cannery Row, close to everything."
This hotel was very nice. The staff was excellent and very attentive. Got a great recommendation for dinner at the Fish Hopper and enjoyed the wine & cheese happy hour, breakfast served to our room, and the quaint terrace on the roof. The only thing we'd do differently is get an ocean view room. We had a Cannery Row view room and due to the heat had […] to sleep with the windows open. It was VERY noisy and we didn't get much sleep. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Front desk staff was inefficient and cold. I inquired about a view room and was told loudly enough for all to hear that none was available because we booked through Hotels.com. We arrived on a warm October day only to discover that the hotel does not have air conditioning. Our room was on the second floor immediately above Cannery Row so leaving the […] door open resulted in so much street noise that we couldn't sleep. The hotel does not have a restaurant and the continental breakfast (included) was poor quality. The fruit wasn't ripe and the pastries were stale. When we departed I left a set of ear phones in the room. I have called twice to see if I could recover them. Both times I was assured that someone would get back to me immediately; so far, nothing. On the plus side, the valet staff and the service staff were first rate - friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The setting is terrific and Paradiso, next door, is surprisingly good. For the money, there are better places on Cannery Row. We recently stayed at the Intercontinental for $50 less per night and had a beautiful room and a decent hotel restaurant.

This is one of the best Hotels I have stayed in , and I frequent them regularly for businees. The location was superb, staff were very helpful and happy, the rooms were wonderful and breakfast in bed was a real treat. I would recommend the Spindrift to anyone wanting a relaxing luxourious place to stay. On a side note , what a beautiful area for a […] vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was probably the most romantic place I have ever stayed at. The furnishings were perfect for a romantic stay. We even had a real fireplace in our room - which is a first. Complimentary breakfast in our room was also very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Romantic Hotel"
The hotel is located right in the middle of Cannery Row! Resturants and entertainment everywhere. We weren't used to the feathertop mattress. It was a little noisy until 12:30AM but it was fun! Very quaint hotel room. Wood burning fireplace with all the wood you want to burn. Continental breakfast served to your room (included)!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is very lovely and well maintained. The staff provides outstanding service. The hotel is located in a great area and you can easily walk to shops, restaurants, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old style hotel, the front on the beach"
The back of the hotel, where my room was located, is on the main street. The whole area is affected by ad incredibile number of seagulls, screaming all the time and making an intolerable noise. Furthermore the whole area is very dirty because of the presence of the birds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location. Excellent Staff."
The hotel and staff were great. I was concerned that we didn't get an ocean side room and the street side might be loud but that wasn't the case. The ocean side was all fog and the street side turned out better than expected!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location; terrific ambiance"
Fantastic restaurant next door; wood burning fireplace in ocean front room; extremely helpful staffGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel on the beach!!!"
The staff was fabulous and very helpful with any of our needs!!!!! Loved the continental breakfast delivered to our room on a silver try, nice addition for a romantic get away. From 4-6pm they have cheese/crackers and wine in the lobby, we took our to the rooftop deck and enjoyed they ocean view. Room was beautiful with canopy bed, so comfortable. Love […] this place, planning to return soon!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is great. Very thoughtful about little details and helpful staff. The location is great for accessing the aquarium and rec trail, but the immediate vicinity is very touristy and a bit loud at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"historic significance- cannery row"
Staff went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. Daily wine and cheese tasting is indeed a premier social event. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. I look forward to staying here the next time I visit the Monterrey area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Beach side Location"
Stayed 4 nights. Very comfortable. Bathrooms need an update, but they are clean. Lovely comp breakfast in bed. Simple, light fare, but fresh. Very sweet and accommodating staff and the location couldn't be better for all things Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel. Aquarium is a short walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right in the action on Canary Row"
Charming rooms with great service and valet parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Romantic getaway Spindrift didn't disappoint."
The room was exceptional the fireplace gives it a elegant and romantic touch. my wife an I were celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary and we found the Spindrift Inn to be the perfect getaway to celebrate. the fireplace and the breakfast in bed ti was the perfect touch. perfectely located in the center of Cannery Row.Genuine Expedia guest review
touted as the only hotel on the beach, which is true. But it was not worth the price. The continental breakfast was a major disappointment. The "Lodge" was under construction. This should have been revealed when I made reservations. Hot tub was too hot...I estimate at least 110 degrees.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel,fireplace in the bedroom, breakfast in bed as the only option, lovely staff and wine and chees late afternoon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is a gem. Located in the center of the Cannery Row, it is, in decor and ambiance, like staying in a continental palace room. They overlooked no detail, in terms of in-room amenities, from the fresh flowers, to the plush robes, to the working fireplace (!), the canopy bed and goose down comforter, fine furnishings, and more. The second floor, […] Cannery Row street side, has private 20 ft. balconies. The daily wine and cheese social hour is an elegant treat. And the full roof-top terrace, beautifully landscaped and furnished, offers sweeping views of the Monterey Bay environs. The hotel, itself, sits directly on the beach, with walkout access from the guest floors and full bay views from the bay-side rooms. The staff is beyond cordial, and they are very, very accommodating to all guest needs and requests. The Spindrift lives up to its advertisements Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Hotel, Great Staff, Fantastic Location"
A beautiful hotel, run by great staff, in a fantastic location. It's really cosy and sweet, intimate and comfortable. It is billed as a romantic hotel, and definitely is, but we had our 7-year-old along, and everyone made her feel like a very nice young lady! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place away from home!"
Great location. All of the staff was friendly and helpfull. Breakfast brought to our room every morning was a big plus. We will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved our time in Monterey. The area is just beautiful, and the drive down the Pacific Coast Highway was extraordinary. The Spindrift Inn itself was great. Our room was lovely, the view of the ocean, and the seals, was incredible. The staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our time. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The place not to stay.."
21.00 dollar`s for parking was way too much, so we parked 5 blocks away. I called down to the front desk to ask them how to get a Giants game on the TV is told me she would call me back in a few min and she never called back.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a nice location, right on Cannery Row and on the water's edge. We only had a street view, but that was still really nice. Unfortunately, the windows had bird guano on them, thus marring the view, but it was still nice. It was really nice to have a 4th floor room because in the morning, the sunlight was streaming in through the skylight. Breakfast […] delivered to your room is such a nice service. There is only one elevator and it is small (this is a historic hotel), but there is an exterior staircase. Very close to the Aquarium and Sardine Factory restaurant. Definitely recommend it. Only downsides: sound travels fast here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pacific Coast Drive"
Wow! A place worth stopping for a stay. We started our trip in San Diego and drove the Coast to San Francisco, this place by far was the best. Wine and cheese when we arrived, wood burning fireplace, breakfast in the room all made up for a wonderful stop. To top it off was one of the best ice cream shops around right next to the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent Hotel! Excellent Service! Very Friendly and Courteous Staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Hotel, Amazing Service - but no AC"
Came here with my wife for our anniversary. The hotel staff sent up chocolates and a Happy Anniversary card! Very nice staff, very professional, very accommodating. Highly recommend Spindrift Inn. Only thing I didn't like was that there's no AC, but there are extra fans.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spring Break Vacation"
This was our second time staying at the Spindrift. Overall, the hotel is really nice and centrally located to activities in Cannery Row. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They have a really nice nightly wine and cheese reception. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. However, this visit we experienced a bed that felt broken down. Both […] my wife and I felt we were rolling towards the edge of the bed due to the mattress feeling this way. We did notify the staff concerning this issue. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spinning in Monterey"
What is there not to love about the Spindrift ?? One of THE Landmark Hotels in Cannery Row. Right on the water. Has its own beach access. Featherbeds. 4:30 wine and cheese daily. Continental Breakfast delivered to your room on a silver platter. Fireplaces in each room. Bread bowls of clam chowder 5 minutes away !!! Thank God we got a great rate on HOTELS.COM […] cuz as cool as this place is---I would NEVER pay $350 a night to stay here !!!! Lolz !!! My only complaint was that upon arrival the room was way too hot and the thermostat was a little confusing--especially because I left my glasses in the car !!! Had to have the maintenance guy in the next room help us out !!! Also--we had a gas fireplace but when lit the flames did not reach the bottom of the log to ignite it !! We figured out a way to make it work though !! Other than those 2 small things----PERFECT !!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After spending over thirty-five years visiting the wonderful town of Monterey, California; The Spindrift Inn is at the top of the list in places to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a small boutique hotel that is right in the middle of cannery row the bay facing rooms are great. We enjoyed using the supplied binoculars to watch wildlife. The fireplace was great. Just can't say enough about the hotel and the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, lots of charm. Great location."
Hotel was charming staff were great. Loved the location could walk to beach, stores and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
Gorgeous ocean view, right on the beach, just blocks from the aquarium. The staff was efficient and friendly. Breakfast was great. The $21 parking fee is a bit steep, but it beats driving around looking for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
