The inn is well-located, the staff is friendly and helpful and the bed is extremely comfortable. The room was smaller than expected but adequate. Well-located on Cannery Row.

My husband and I needed a nice get away for a weekend and I am so glad that we came across this Hotel. From the moment we walked in, the service was excellent. I actually booked the romance package which included a couples massage and $100 gift certificate for dinner. We had the option of an in room massage or...

We stayed at the Spindrift during a vacation touring the west coast. The hotel is quaint, extremely comfortable and has views to die for. We spotted dolphins, sea otters, seals and seabirds without even leaving the room so it goes without saying that paying a premium for a room with a view over macabee beach and the bay beyond is...

We stayed in an ocean front room. Open the windows and the crashing waves put you at rest. A wood burning fireplace was a nice touch too. When you step out the front door you are on cannery row. Bubba Gumps, ghiradelli, and El Torrito sighing a few steps. We will come back.

This place has such charm! The room was very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and friendly. You are just a couple blocks from the aquarium and you can walk for miles along the bay right from the hotel. We enjoyed the breakfast too. Keep in mind that they do specify it is only a continental breakfast, so don't expect...

The location and service of this hotel are great. However, breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. It is served in your room so selection is poor, there are no warm items to choose from, the presentation is poor, and foos is not tasty. For the price we paid, we were left very dissapointed. Also, if you want to go...

The location was great and the staff was very friendly. They have a great wine and cheese reception and a nice roof top deck to enjoy it. The rooms are very small but adorable with hardwood floors, a fireplace and a window seat. Our room overlooked Cannery Row and it got a little noisy at night from the bar across...

I had a hard time deciding which of the hotels/inn's I wanted to book for a little weekend getaway to Monterey. I finally decided on Spindrift because the views looked amazing. I actually had to call ahead of time because I needed to arrange to have a cake delivered from a local bakery and placed in our room before we...

My husband and i bought a new car and decided to go on a road trip to monterey. We were only going to go for the day but decided we would stay the night.. We wanted to stay right on cannery row so we went into the Spindrift inn and asked if they had any rooms available, they had one...

We had another perfect stay. We come back to the Spindrift every year and sometimes twice a year if we can sneak a trip in. We have considered staying at either of the two other big places, but we just can't imagine how it can be any more perfect than everything we could possibly want in a hotel. We really...
