Always love the Spindrift for a couples getaway.

Spindrift Inn, Monterey
Dated, buuuuut....
...I just can't bring myself to knock a star off the review. While the hotel is quite dated and a bit run-down, the charm of being right on the water in the heart of Cannery Row made it all worthwhile. We booked one of the "corner" rooms, and boy are we glad we did. You're literally overlooking a small beach, and once you open the windows, you get the sound of waves crashing all night long. Amazing! The fireplace in the room (real wood!) is a very nice touch. The rest of the room is charming but showing its age. The bedding is worn and the towels were fraying. Frankly, for $300+ per night, I expected better. But again...LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! You should also be aware that the valet parking is $30 per night. (We only took our car out once in three days, as walking one direction gets you to Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Monterey, and the other direction gets you Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the beauty of the recreation trail into Pacific Grove. It's a walker's paradise!) Bottome line? It would be great if they'd update this hotel (the lobby is also oddly set up, needs some soft music playing, and uncomfortable as you can't really carry on a conversation that everyone won't hear), but the location on the water and the charm of the Monterey Peninsula makes it a place we'll likely come back to again and again. Can't wait!

Cozy find, Great Service!
We decided to take a trip alone to see Monterey without our six kids and this place was the perfect relaxing getaway we needed! It is conveniently located on Cannery Row, next to all the shops, restaurants and bars. We did the 17 mile rd tour which was the highlight of our weekend! Overall the hotel staff was super curteous! They even let us keep our car in the garage with the valet service after we checked out! It was the little things that mattered. I had to have coffee late at night and I couldn't find a store open. I asked the gal up front and she said "oh don't worry, I'll have room service bring you some more coffee and cream and sugar!!! Like...ACTUAL cream, not a little packet of powder. :) Oh they have REAL fire places in your rooms!
