Friendly staff, perfect location on the water along Cannery Row, and a truly unique property with plenty of character while simultaneously being very modern and comfortable. Our "go-to" whenever we go back to Monterey.

Based on the pictures of the ocean-side rooms (small windows with some fairly aged decor), I was very impressed with what we actually saw as we entered our room. The linens, furniture and electronics were all updated and the window"s" were tall and wide which gave us an unbelievable view of the ocean. We were able to see several sea...

This is THE place to stay in Monterey. Our stay was truly one of comfort and luxury. All of the staff are friendly and very helpful. The tea, wine and cheese by the fire at 4:30 was a nice way to start a relaxing evening. The rooms are beautifully done. We highly recommend the Spindrift!

Although my husband and I only live 30 min. from Monterey, whenever we need to get away we come to the Spindrift Inn. The staff are all warm, friendly, and you may even be greeted with a smiling face and a "Welcome Home" from the front desk upon your return from shopping. They were attentive and they catered to our...

A corner room overhanging the Pacific Ocean is perfect in Monterey. This is our second stay in this hotel, and it never disappoints. Reliable, discrete service, clean rooms, stunning views, warm and friendly staff, great proportions to the room, lovely touches. The robes are perfect, the wine glasses clean and thoroughly rinsed to perfection each day - real attention to...

My husband and I came to stay at the Spindrift Inn for our anniversary. All if our family told us not to leave town because everywhere we were going would be rainy and un-enjoyable. I couldn't have been more glad we didn't listen to them! The Spindrift Inn is located right on Cannery Row and with a beautiful ocean view....

So, this hotel is cute. I loved the crashing waves and the fireplace. The staff is sweet and there was a blackout during our stay and they were fantastic, providing wine and a fire in the lobby. Cannery Row is not gorgeous and there were homeless people sleeping right next door to the hotel (we had a view of them!),...

I'd come to San Francisco for a conference, my wife had joined me for the latter part of it. It was my wife's first trip to the States and my first trip to the West Coast. I wanted to get us out of San Francisco to see a little more of the West Coast and we both wanted to dip...

We stayed just one night at the Inn on our way down the coast and how I wished it could have been a longer stay. Everything about our stay was amazing. The service was wonderful from staff who truly value their guests. Nothing was too much trouble. There are not words to describe the room. Plush and cosy. Would love...
