We went to Monterey to celebrate my wife's birthday and stayed at the Spindrift Inn overnight before continuing on to San Francisco. Upon check in, Marlene was most helpful and awesome, our room was an ocean view room that was just amazing. Each room has a fireplace and with the windows open you can hear the waves just lapping on...

We stayed in the 2 queen bed room and were very happy with the size! A lovely fireplace, window seat with an ocean view and a seating area. The location is great, right on Cannery Row and minutes away from restaurants, the Aquarium and shopping. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. I'm thinking of coming back and next...

If you're coming to Monterey to visit the Aquarium and hang out on Cannery Row, the Spindrift is a great launching pad. It's walking distance to...well, most of Monterey's waterfront. The hotel offers valet parking so you don't have to deal with where you parked or remembering your ticket. We took a corner room with a fireplace which was very...

We had a leisurely start to a rainy morning with our “included continental breakfast” delivered to the room (standard service!) which we enjoyed in front of a gas-assisted real wood burning fireplace. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the turn down service was a nice old-fashioned touch which just added to the pampered feeling. This is a great...

Cameron and female assistant GM very rude on several occasions at check in 1-22-17. However, the staff at booking on 1-20-17 were great & pleasant. The bell hops & housekeeping were also more hospitable than Cameron or Assistant GM. We have stayed here multiple times and have had issues each time. Staying on a Friday or Saturday night kept us...

I don't normally do reviews. But, the trip that my husband and I just had was worth reviewing on. (January 2017)We had an amazing time. Everything is absolutely perfect in this hotel.

This is by far the best hotel that I have stayed at in Monterey and I have been coming to this city for business and on vacation for over 30 years. We liked the window seating and the real wood burning fireplaces.

I just love the real wood fireplaces and the antique beds. This is very nice hotel, and it is fantastic to take a guest on romantic weekend. Being able to see the otters out the back balcony is a plus. Now it is expensive, but once in a while it is worth it. For a quit stay on cannery row...
