Certainly don't get all the excellent reviews. Location counts if you like noise, tourist shop selling cheap trinkets. My bed is lumpy. Paint chipped and peeling. Dust covered drapes. Mold/wet stains on walks/ceilings in bath. (See photos) Small room smells of the fireplace. Street noise lulls you to sleep late into the night. Victorian and quaint can be code for...

The complimentary breakfast is what lured another couple in our party in pick the Spindrift Inn. While the breakfast was standard - nothing special, except for the seagull that somehow arrives with perfect timing to beg for some bagels on your windowsill - the room was sweet and cozy. There is nothing between you and the ocean. We opened up...

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at the Spindrift Inn. We thought the hotel staff was very kind and attentive but we were underwhelmed with our stay on the overall. The room was a smaller than I would have liked. There were two large chairs placed in front of the fireplace making it hard to...

Hello smiles314, Thank you for visiting the Spindrift Inn and for your kind words regarding our team.

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful experience. The rooms are lovely decorated and clean. The staff at the front desk and concierge/valet service were very helpful. There is a included Wine and Cheese Apéro everyday between 4 and 6 pm. We stayed at a room with "Cannary Wharf" view and at first we thought that we miss...

Our stay in the spindrift inn was enjoyable and we liked the character of the room, In particular we liked the window seats overlooking cannery row. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. It was nice to have breakfast delivered in the morning as part of the room cost, although this was quite basic continental and could have...

Magnificent experience on short stay in Monterey. Being in the middle of Cannery Row, the hotel is an ideal place to stay to enjoy the tourist aspects of Monterey. Room was warmly decorated and furnished and had a pleasant woodsmoke smell from the wood burning fireplace. It was too warm for us to light the fire but no doubt would...

We stayed two nights in late March with a room on the top floor overlooking the ocean. The hotel was located in a popular area of Monterey and within easy walking distance to shops and many restaurants. We were checked in by Cameron who was efficient and friendly. All the folks we encountered were very helpful and courteous. Our room...

Ventured off to Monterey for a quick over night stay. The Spindrift is a very nice hotel located on Cannery Row just down the street from the Monterey Aquarium and some nice restaurants and shops. It is a clean and cute little inn with victorian style decor with wood burning fireplaces in the rooms, and a friendly staff (especially Cameron...

We booked because of good reviews from Trip Advisor but this was one of our big mistakes. Our room overlooked the street where loud music totally disturbed any sleep. The hotel does not warn you of this anywhere. It just talks about ocean breezes! There is no way to turn down the heat in the room except by leaving windows...
