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
"Very nice folks"
We had a wonderful stay at the Spindrift Inn. Great location and very friendly staff. Would definately stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
This is the place to go for comfort, romance and pampering. We were greeted outside the hotel , walked to the front desk and seated with great kindness.The wonderful host recommended we try the corner canary row view room that also offered a small view of the water and it was the perfect solution without having to pick between canary row or ocean view […] .defiantly recommend this option well worth it. Wine and cheese reception was wonderful we also made great conversation with another couple which made it fell like a social. One recommendation when you pick the time for your beautiful complimentary breakfast to be delivered to the room expect it to be there at that time. We figured we would pick 7:00-7:15 expecting it to arrive around 7:30 or 8 well they are punctual . my alarm went of at 7 the same time the wonderful host knocked on our door, to our surprise we scrambled to grab robes to answer the door. I also have to share the turndown service because we did not expect them to go out of there way . We had our luggage and jackets scattered on our bed but when we returned our luggage was organized and our jackets were hung up with chocolates laying on our bed. This was a great stay and defiantly held up to all the great reviews that lead us to choose this hotel. We would love to stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotels.com says that all rooms have an ocean view - not true!! Very disappointing. Terrible bed. Noisy location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice weekend getaway"
We splurged and got a corner view room, well worth it to be able to watch the sea otters. One of the curtains had a cigarette burn but otherwise the place was immaculate. The fireplace was cheery but don't forget to adjust the heat in the room (thermostat) so you don't roast like we did! Overall a really great getaway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was in a perfect location! 2 blocks to the Aquarium, small beach and ocean, lots of shopping options and array of choices for restaurants. The hotel was clean and decorated nicely. We had a Cannery Row room with a balcony which was beautiful. We were worried about noise since we were on the second floor but that was not an issue. The staff […] was friendly and professional. The breakfast is continental but the fruit was fresh and sweet and the muffins delicious. I would definitely return to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this place!"
Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! We will be back again someday!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Love this hotel! Had a great time. The views were lovely. Waking up to the smell and roars of the ocean, amazing! The staff was friendly and loved the wine and cheese hour in the lobby. I loved the free continental breakfast that was served to our room!Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall a really nice place. But we got a balcony room and were looking forward to enjoying a cup of coffee on the balcony in the morning. Instead, we had to listen to the engine of a delivery truck for 30 minutes!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay enough"
Hotel was excellent. Cannery Row was a disappointment. Has seen better days. I would not pay room price again to stay there, especially with the added Valet parking and no ocean viewGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfection by the Sea"
We have stayed at the Spindrift for many years. It never disappoints. Window seats and fireplaces in French country furnishings on the bay--beautiful! Walk to the aquarium and the Sardine Factory easily.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was excellent. They really made you feel at home. I was working while out there, and after 2nd day they had my car brought around every morning by 5:30am without me even calling the front desk. Nice little wine and cheese reception each afternoon. Great location, great service. Ill be back in a few weeks to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Luxurious stay, with breakfast delivered to your room and generous wine and cheese reception in the evening. Cozy and very close to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Would definitely stay there again. Stayed in a balcony suite overlooking Cannery Row during the month of January. Crowds were minimal.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean beautiful hotel right on the water. Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Views and sounds of the ocean from the room are incredible!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good romantic get away"
Excellent location on cannery row, very nice staff, and cozy rooms with fluffy beds. A simple light breakfast was included, delivered to the room. Ceilings and windows are starting to feel aged, but functional. My room faced the street, which did have some bar noise late at night, covered my ears with a pillow to go to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
Spent the night in ocean view room with a fireplace. It was relaxing and comfortable. Slept with the window open to listen to the waves. Free continental breakfast of eggs fruit muffins orange juice and coffee. Check out time was 12 so we could relax and sleep in. We will be back, especially if I find a groupon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic get away"
Even the rooms over looking the street are nice to do people watching. One of the most romantic hotels in the world. Step out the door and walk Cannery Row with the best restrants on the west coast in walking distant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy and charming!"
Travelled with my 18yr old daughter. We were attracted to the charm and romantic Victorian era look of this hotel and were not disappointed. The ambience was complete with a fireplace and "grandma's" feather bed. Such a cozy and comfortable room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice touch in having complimentary afternoon tea with cheese and fruit […] in the lobby, and simple breakfast delivered to our room. Ideally located on Cannery Row with shops and plethora of restaurants at doorstep. Would love to come back to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Too much noise"
We stayed at the Spindrift for my husband's birthday. We were put in a room on the 2nd floor right above Cannery Row. The room was also adjacent to the open lobby of the hotel. During the day, we noticed a lot of noise from the lobby. During the night, there was a lot of noise from outside. Businesses were closed on Cannery Row, but a restaurant/bar […] one street away had a live band on a Sunday night which was really loud. We stayed only one night and couldn't put out the extra expense of the ocean view room, and that is apparently what you have to do if you want to enjoy your stay here. The breakfast menu is small. I would have thought it would at least include bagels, but the bread choices are toast, muffin, and breakfast cake. You don't even get to choose what type of toast, muffin, or breakfast cake. You can't choose what type of yogurt, either. You just hope it's what you like when it's delivered in the morning. On a positive note, the room was clean. The staff made our dinner reservation, which got us a table overlooking the water and a complimentary dessert. We were able to have our car parked in valet after check-out at no extra charge while we enjoyed Monterey for a few more hours. The staff was friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay. Would go back in a minute."
I loved the location, everything is right there within walking distance. Great room, very comfortably and the staff was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wood fire place in the room!"
The service was excellent, and the rooms are amazing. Very comfortable hotel. They even have working wood fireplaces in the rooms. We were able to walk just down the block to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Comfortable hotel and sea otters in the same trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Luxury with best view of the bay!"
My husband and I spent a fabulous night at the Spindrift Inn. Can't wait to return. Loved the romantic canopy Bed and fireplace, and most of all the comfortable windowseat with open window views of Monterey Bay. The hotel even provided binoiculars for sea life watching! One of the most enjoyable hotels we have ever been to on the coast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were allowed to check-in very early with no problems (there was a room available so we were lucky). Our room overlooked the bay and the windows open out so the waves are crashing maybe 50 feet or less from you. There were binoculars in the room that we used to watch seals (or sea lions maybe?) and otters swim around and play. We walked to everything […] on Cannery Row and enjoyed our time there. I took away a point on comfort because the featherbed was way too soft for either of us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is tops."
This hotel is older and pricey but beautifully maintained, and right on the ocean on Monterey's Cannery Row,. Also about two blocks from the Monterey Aquarium, and the same distance from an excellent restaurant, Schooner's..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall experience was excellent. Very comfy beds and room. One thing I would like considered is the hotel environment as it pertains to scent sensitive people. My wife had considerable trouble with the smell of cleaners and air fresheners used.Genuine Expedia guest review
I don't do frilly b&bs. They just aren't my style. Because of this, I had some reservations about staying here, however, given the reviews I decided to give it a try. It was wonderful and completely exceeded my expectations. We will be coming back again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for couples!"
My boyfriend and I stayed for one night and it was absolutely great! The staff was wonderful, the room was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and the valet service was very convient. Although I saw a few complaints about cannery row side being too noisy, it was not too much of distraction for us.i still enjoyed the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
