This was our second time saying at the Spindrift Hotel. Very romantic. The ocean views are absolutely stunning. And the breakfast served to your room is such a nice touch. The service the second time here was not as great as the first time but it was satisfactory.

As with previous stays, we were once again delighted with every aspect of our stay at the Spindrift over the Thanksgiving week-end. The room was clean, comfortable and especially cozy with the wood-burning fireplace. I would unconditionally recommend this hotel. The location could not be better, and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly.

This is a beautiful small hotel right on Cannery Row. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted to do which was visit the aquarium and the sights from the Steinbeck novel. We had a corner room facing Cannery Row but with a side view of the ocean...very nice. The room was large with a nice sitting area with... More

Spindrift is old school, and quite elegant in a slightly faded way. The location, right on Cannery Row, cannot be bettered. Valet parking is efficient, and the complimentary cheese and wine is a nice touch. Our room was right on the water, and opening windows, allowing the sound of the sea,plus a log fire, made for a romantic evening. Our... More

We stayed 2 nights in November, in ocean view and cannery row rooms and loved this place. Homely decor, ridiculously comfy beds and great staff at a very good rate. Can't recommend highly enough. If we get back to California we will be back. If your budget is up to it go for an ocean view room and watch the... More

Third time at the SD and you can never go wrong there. Went for thanksgiving this year, the staff are always excellent, try and book ocean side, winter weather so we slept with the windows open, sound of surf crashing on the beach and a fire lit. Central to everything on canary row, walk everywhere and if you need, call... More

The Spindrift Inn is a small hotel on Cannery Row. I have stayed in room 213 on five different occasions. The room is clean, beautiful and quiet. The staff offer a wine session every afternoon and room service includes a free breakfast. You can choose between rooms with a see view or rooms facing Cannery Row. I can also recommend... More

Poor service for the price. Great views, but average 2 star hotel with no amenities. Worth the view, but everything else is sub par for the cost of the room. You can walk to Monterey aquarium and that's about it. Good restaurants in the area which are walkable.

Had a very good experience staying at Spindrift Inn, the people there made the difference, especially Victor at the front desk. Room was cozy clean and loved the fireplace! Great location and atmosphere, would definitely stay here again.
