Monterey during U.S. Open”

I was so impressed with this property that I would stay at the Spindrift Inn every time I visit Monterey. Unfortunately I was out of the area each day during happy hour but they do have wine and cheese for guests. The room was not traditional and the bed was very comfortable. The complementary breakfast, delivered to the room, was also a nice touch.

Quick over night trip”

My daughter & I needed a hotel for an overnight near her SAT site but we also wanted to have a little fun the night before. I have always wanted to stay at the Spindrift, We arrived later than planned and pulled up to valet parking ($30 and worth it because parking in Monterey is expensive). The staff was so nice, they were cleaning up the wine, but kindly offered me a glass since it had been a long drive. Our room was adorable, clean, and quaint and We loved the fireplace (I wished it was cooler so I wanted a fire) the best surprise a sauna in the bathroom. When. we returned from a late dinner one of our windows was stuck & they had a maintenance person up in at 10pm fixing it. The next morning i had to leave early to run to the test, I called down & they had my car out front waiting for us...& I came back to finish my in room continental breakfast. They also loaded my luggage in my car after check out while I went for lunch.. All the staff amazing and friendly I will be back

On our road trip along the California coast we had only one day in Monterey, we wanted to be close to the Aquarium and Spindrift is not only in the middle of Cannery Row, it is a charming hotel with friendly staff and nicly appointed rooms. I will stay here next time I'm in the area and will share my experience with everyone. Oh, and the offer wine and cheese to the guests in the afternoon, nice touch.

Went for the weekend with my wife. Nice room, real wood burning fireplace, great view! The Spindrift is a short walk to most everything in Monterey; the wharf, Presidio, downtown, Aquarium and Pacific Grove. They also have a nice bar downstairs with a great bay view. Will stay there again.

Will Definitely Stay Again!! ”

This is a cute boutique type hotel that goes out of their way to make you feel at home. With the wood burning fireplaces, extra fan in the room, sitting area including a window seat to overlook the ocean or Canary Row, and the to order continental breakfast delivered to the room, this place is super cozy and comfortable for couples wanting to relax with all that Monterey has to offer. Be prepared to pay for valet parking but it does have in/out privileges and we never waited more than 10 min for our car. The only odd thing I could say is there are not any screens on the windows that overlook the ocean/row... so be cautious if you have the window fully open because there isn’t a barrier.

Very beautiful”

This was a wonderful experience. The spindrift has an older feel with all modern amenities. Very comfortable beds,pillows, robes. There is a gas/wood burning fireplace in each room. Perfect for a relaxing getaway. There is no restaurant “on site” so you fill out a card and they bring breakfast each morning to your room! Lovely. There is a fridge and coffee/tea station in each room. Hotel has nice happy hour with wine and cheese. Good location for cannery row. I was less impressed with cannery row as i had higher expectations a very gentrified. Aquarium is walking distance. Hotel is right on the beach but i didn’t see any beach chairs etc, although in this cooler part of Cali it’s not really “beach”climate per se.

Terrific property and location. Rooms well thought out and comfortable. Large sauna in our room that seemed little used. My suggestion would be to take it out and enlarge the bathroom. I personally didn’t care for the feather bed as all the feathers clumped together in the middle. However, overall the Spindrift is a nice hotel and we would stay there again.

Spindrift Inn is one of the best hotels I've stayed at”

Upon arrival, we were greeted kindly with a wonderful woman, who asked if we needed help with our bags, shared with us the happy hour info for complimentary cheese and wine (and offered to save us some if we couldn't make it), and was overall so welcoming. The space was beautiful. Our window was towards the city side (not ocean), so we could hear live music at night, but wasn't loud enough to keep us up with the windows closed. The fireplace added a romantic, warm feel to the room - some clothes left by the fire might smell a little smoky from it, but we felt that was worth it. The valet was super convenient though there are options to park at meters right outside. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay! Thank you!

Wonderful location, delightful and romantic”

Hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to the Aquarium and many shops and restaurants. By car just minutes to the wharf or downtown. My room was a corner cannerey row view. I was lucky enough to have a peek a boo ocean view as well. The room was small but packed everything we needed. The wood fireplace is the centerpiece. There are two bench seat windows and a small table that will held our breakfast tray of fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee, tea, orange juice, milk, boiled egg, bread and cheese options which was brought to the room each morning. The staff was kind and responded quickly to any requests. Rooms are very quiet. I did miss not having a jacuzzi spa to retreat to after the days activities. Each night we left a window open and were awaken in the morning by the sound of the seagulls playing in the ocean. Sitting right on the beach with direct access. Simply beautiful. Simply romantic.

Great value, amazing location”

The staff was super-helpful, the location was amazing (two blocks from the Aquarium) and my room was a corner room with views of Cannery Row and the Bay. Working fireplace, complimentary continental breakfast brought to your room each morning, bath salts for the tub, window benches for sitting, dvd player you could borrow, wine and cheese reception every afternoon -- given all this, the price was very reasonable and better than most spots nearby!

Romantic but why doesn’t anyone mention the SMOKE!??”

The room was terribly smokey, so I changed rooms to a little less smokey room. I stayed because I was told there was nothing they could do. It woke me up at 3am as I personally was having a bad reaction to it. The night lobby receptionist told me to open the windows. Being on the street the noice kept me awake. I would want to know this, hence the review. When I shared my issue in the morning the receptionist said “ok” to me. Obviously unconcerned. I gave up and checked out. They ended up crediting me 30.00 w “smoke” on the bill, but never addressed it. Amazing location and would be romantic, the room was beautiful, but staff and smell would keep me from staying again.

We arrived around 9 am and asked to check our bags until the 4 pm check in. We were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready, which was great as we had been up since 4:30 am traveling and wanted to freshen up just a bit. We were given a corner room, which allowed us a view of Cannery Row and the ocean. Our balcony was nice, the double doors let in a lot of natural light, which I love! I also love that we had a fireplace. When I made the reservations, I didn't think we'd actually use the fireplace at all but we had cool drizzly weather and ended up using the fireplace every morning and every evening of our stay. The hotel offers complimentary wine in the evening and a rooftop garden. I don't drink, so the wine didn't appeal to me and the cool wet weather made the rooftop garden an area that we just visited to check out but didn't relax and enjoy. The room service breakfast was simply but satisfying - hard boiled eggs, cheese, toast, muffin, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, coffee...

Paying for the waterfront room was TOTALLY worth it! You are literally on the beach with the sound of waves crashing, it was spectacular. The bed was very comfy, large bathroom and lovely room. The one big downside for me was that someone before me had clearly been using the fireplace and when I walked in the room I was hit with the smell of smoke. This irritated my eyes and throat the whole stay which was an unexpected disappointment. I ask the staff for air deodoriser or anything to help but they had nothing to help the situation. Even with the windows wide open it wouldn’t go away. The hotel should not allow logs on the fireplace because of this (it’s a gas fireplace). It felt like I was on a five star trip but combined with a school camping trip with a campfire smell that really detracted from the stay for me.
