My husband and I stayed at the Spindrift Inn for three nights and it was fantastic! Be sure you book a room facing the bay. We loved watching the waves and otters playing in the water. Our room had a window seat, windows that really open, a fireplace, and a very comfortable bed. Plus, our rate included happy hour (wine...

If you're looking for a hotel that serves as a romantic hideaway for a few days, where you can sit in front of a log fire in a "cosy" room, then I guess the Spindrift Inn will give you that. And there are some nice touches too; being provided with a coffee machine AND a second machine to allow you...

Ok, first let me get this out of the way - this place is CLEAN. It exceeded my high standards of cleanliness, and the lack of carpeting in the rooms was AWESOME (there's hard wood flooring). My husband and I stayed on the top (4th) floor in a corner king ocean view room, and it was worth every penny. The...

This hotel is so charming and delicate. The staff is very attentive. We love the views of the ocean and the real wood burning fireplace. The windows open to let in the fresh ocean air too. Comfy, fluffy, cloud-like beds and pillows---you don't want to leave. Continental breakfast is served in your room. And they offer wine, fruit and cheese...

This hotel was the perfect ending to my trip and I can't wait to go back with my husband. The room was awesome with the fluffiest bed and pillows. The armchairs in front of the fire were perfect for watching a movie in front of the fire. The fireplace was perfect and easy to start (even for a novice like...

My husband and I spent one fabulous night at the Spindrift Inn earlier this month. We stayed in a deluxe corner king ocean view room. It was just lovely. Very clean, very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need right at your fingertips. There was lots of firewood for the fireplace, there was a pair of binoculars to look out...

While I only stayed one night in the Spindrift Inn, I found it to be a wonderful hotel ... from the pleasant staff, to the wonderful room (mine overlooked Cannery Row and was wonderfully appointed including a working fireplace!), to the great location right on the water / on Cannery Row, within walking distance from the aquarium. Although perhaps geared...

My partner had been there before and had a nice stay and suggested we stay there on my first visit to Monterey. The valets were very nice, the front desk was also quite nice on check in. I wasn't able to get any cheese and crackers because there was another resident and a server in front of the table chatting...

The hotel is located right on Cannery Road, which is on the main street in Monterey and right along the coast with nice beach view. Along Cannery Road is a fisherman’s wharf, a number of restaurants (including Bubba Gump), souvenir shops, and chocolate and candy stores. At the end of the road is the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which is just...

We've been coming back to this place for the past 15 years and have never been disappointed. This is the absolute best place to stay in Monterey!!!
