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. We felt pampered and couldn't asked for more. The minute we arrived the valet was on top of grabbing our bags and welcoming us. The girls at the...

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...

What a great hotel. Beautiful window seat over looking the bay. We watched otters play right outside our window. Hardwood floors, real wood burning fireplace, pillow top 4 post bed, top notch friendly service...the list goes on. Billy and Paul made us feel right at home as soon as we pulled up in front. They parked our car, handled our...

Looking over cannery row, clean and beautiful room with excellent service. A real wood burning fireplace facing a very comfortable bed. Loved continental breakfast delivered to our room at the time we requested. Enjoyed our early evening wine and cheese with the other guests in the quaint lobby.

A first I was disappointed that our bay facing room was on the first floor, but I changed my mind when I sat down and looked out on the bay through the binoculars provided in our room. Our room was quiet with a gas fireplace and windows that opened so you could hear the sound of the waves on the...

Hi Deborah C, Thank you for the fantastic review! It was wonderful to read that you found your guest room to offer the most picturesque views above the tranquil waves of the bay below.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a coastal trip and I wish we had stayed longer. Overlook the $28/day parking fee and enjoy the convenience of valet parking. The fire place in the room was excellent and being on the top floor gave us vaulted ceilings. The in room coffee station and the evening wine and...

The inn has amazing views form Ocean View Rooms! Best in California. We are coming every year! Service is great, and it's right next to Cannery Row and the Monterey Aquarium. Our favorite Place to stay in Monterey!

Spindrift Inn is a great hotel..........but, we just can't put our finger on it, perhaps just not great for us. We had a lovely room, with an un-interupted view of the ocean. We watched, seals, otters and loads of birds during our stay. To sleep at night with the window open and the waves crashing was sublime. To be so...

Hello PaulWhitehead409, We are very appreciative of your review and would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us. While it was wonderful to read that you found your guest room to be lovely with never-ending views of the bay and enjoyed our Cannery Row location, we were disappointed that your stay failed to fully meet your expectations....

A wonderful boutique, TREMENDOUS staff, near the must visit Aquarium and great restaurants--plus a wood burning fireplace, which is perfect when you pause for a stay in the well appointed rooms. Breakfast is delivered to your room each morning--a very nice touch. I hesitate to tell others where to stay--but I highly recommend the Spindrift.
