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...

This hotel was AMAZING!!! I can see why it was voted #1 Romantic hotel. This place definitely delivers in that department. The hotel is located right on Cannery Row, which is where all the restaurants, shops, and the aquarium is. The back of the hotel faces the ocean, which was magnificent. From 4:30-7:00 they have a wine and cheese reception,...

We spent our honeymoon here. This is the most wonderful place we have ever stayed. The entire staff was so accomodating. Renee assured a pleasant surprise for my husband from me and it was kept a secret. Marlene at the front desk was just fabulous from the moment we checked in. The room was the most intimate and relaxing room...

We had a very pleasant one night stay over Valentine's Day. Everything you need is within walking distance. They really do surprise you with all the little extras. Very romantic and quiet. Perfect for couples. Even if you don't get a ocean view it is still very nice.

From the minute we walked in the door we were treated like old friends. The welcome at the desk, the valet and the bellman were all top notch. The location is right on the water and in the middle of Cannery Row. Our room faced Cannery Row and even with all the people wandering around below us our room was...

Spindrift is right on the beach on Cannery Row. The management and staff are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. We were 4 guys from oz doing the drive from Sa Fran to L.A.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were great with wood burning fire, terrific view and a big comfy bed. Bit of a waste really on single blokes!
